The unique formula of Sands Alive! incorporates the fun of sand without the mess. Made from all natural ingredients, Sands Alive! Prevents bacterial growth and is non-toxic. It is easy and fun to shape and mould, and is incredibly malleable – all you have to do is apply pressure to easily mould the sand, and it retains your creation until you touch it again and it disintegrates back into a light and fluffy state. The sand is completely mess-free, only sticking to itself. It never dries out and can be played with again and again. Congratulations Independence Studios!
