Kinetic Sand

United States
September 17, 2021 7:59pm CST
I picked up some kinetic sand that some of you may have seen on youtube videos featuring ASMR. I don't believe kinetic sand is necessarily new (I'm sure it's the same thing used in sand art) but it is popular right now. Well, it's okay. I mean, it's a small amount, one of the tools they gave doesn't work quite well and the mold doesn't seem to really mold it back very well. It does work though, and I will use it again. I think, however, I'll buy it elsewhere if I ever want more. Do you like to try new (and sometimes viral / popular) things?

I often bought things just because I was curious. Kinetic sand is around from many years. It is sold for kids to have fun.

I think it's been around since at least the 80's, but it's regained popularity.

@LadyDuck I have not visited the mall since earlier this year when I had to. The closest store for my cellphone provider is in the mall. There are stores centered more towards children but they are on the other side of the mall.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I know that I see the boxes with molds and the sand in the Mall where they sell kids toys.

My kids like this stuff if you leave it out and don’t play with it it gets stiff and easier to mold things the more you play with it the Sandy runny is how it gets.

@ScribbledAdNauseum cool. I’d you want to think it my middle child added some smile that wasn’t extremely sticky and mixed them together and that helped keep stiffer longer.

Oh, thanks! I'll have to try that. It's such a small amount I have, but I love the feel of it as i cut it.

I am pretty sure it's similar to sand art sand, if not the same thing. Well this sand is a bit more wet.

What's the sand for? I don't think I'm familiar with it.

It is kind of a wet sand. People use it as a form of relaxation.

It's looks a little cool. It looks like playdoah. It sounds neat with scents, but I could have that around the cats.
