Sands Alive! Indoor Sand that Never Dries Out {#Giveaway}

I am SO excited to bring to you this Sands Alive Giveaway!

Over the Christmas break, I went to a party with some of my high school friends. One of the highlights for me, aside from visiting with old friends, was being introduced to a new activity for my children: Sands Alive!. The friend of mine who introduced me to it actually brought some out for us to touch and everyone in the room was floored with how amazing it felt! I was immediately convinced that my children would absolutely LOVE it!

About a month later, I came across a HUGE display of Sands Alive! at the Canadian Toy Fair. Because my friend had assured me that this product had anti-bacterial qualities, for once, I was ok with playing with the large display of sand. I will admit that I am typically a wee bit ok more than a wee bit of a germaphobe and typically wouldn’t go near a public display of sand with a 10 foot pole! BUT because Sands Alive! is made of all natural ingredients that combined have an anti-bacterial quality and will never grow mold, I was definitely attracted to this fun display.

Sands Alive!:

  • 100% organic
  • all natural
  • never dries out
  • non toxic
  • bacteria free
  • water soluable
  • made of 6 ingredients from around the world

Are you convinced like I was? Perhaps you need to see it in action:

I gave my children a Deluxe Starter Kit for Valentine’s Day instead of the traditional candy and chocolate. It was the BEST gift that I could have given my children and so far it has provided them with HOURS and HOURS of fun!

Would you believe that for the first time in a long time, my kids actually played cooperatively?!


You can squish it, flatten it, mould it, build with it and more!

This play sand does not make the same type of mess as typical sand does, however, if your children as as active in their play as mine are, it will still land on the floor. We use a mat underneath the table when they play and the sand sweeps up beautifully. A quick brush of their tops, pants and socks (yes, my children are that messy, and they are good to go!

  63. toyman says:

    I think your comments about Sands alive being bacteria free are misleading. I did some research and Sands Alive doesn’t actively kill bacteria, it just doesn’t promote growth. So if a child has the flu virus on their hands and plays with Sands alive, the sand now has that same virus/germ it just wont multiply. Not to burst your bubble but that display at toy fair must have had 100’s of germs floating around it. I’ve also had this stuff in my house and its extremely messy. It gets all over the carpet, sticks to clothing and once it comes into contact with water turns to sludge.

  64. Mike says:

    I just want to comment on TOYMAN post below as I highly disagree with him. This is an amazing toy and may not be for everyone. It looks like you left your kids alone with the product and let them do what they please. This is a toy that needs supervision if your children are toddlers or if you know that your children will abuse the product, at the end of the day it is still sand. I have watched my children play with this item and it is amazing how engaged they are, how they use their own creativity to build things and they can play for hours with very little mess. I have had the product spill on my floors and it was very simply to clean up.
    I attended the Indigo Event during March Break and they had a huge demo of the product their. They had a lab report right there showing that it prevents bacteria growth. I am no doctor, but if it prevents the growth of bacteria, how does it spread it throughout the Sand if it is actually preventing the growth of it? If you play with other toys and compounds, like I have, they turn black after an hour, this is bacteria growing on the product, which I can see then spreading to other places. My kids have played with this sands for hours and hours, as it is their favourite toy, and there has been absolutely no change in colour. Which mean there is no bacteria growing on this like other products. Based on my understanding, if it prevents the growth of bacteria, it is creating a resistant compound that stops the spread of germs and bacteria, which in turns is how it is preventing the growth. Bacteria needs to grow on something so if it prevents the growth, it probably is not inside the sand and does not stay there.
    I have also watched the Sands Alive commercial on Youtube and it does state that it is water-soluble, that is probably why it turns into muck for you.
    Anyways not everyone is going to like every product, but this is the best product that has come to market in years and I strongly recommend this product to everyone and anyone!

  65. Sharon says:

    I am surprised that on a site called Multi Testing Mommy that you are not getting to the crux of what is actually in Sands Alive. The word organic is highlighted whenever there is something written about Sands Alive but there is no actual ingredient listed. For a substance that children are using I ‘m sure there must be some regulations about listing actual ingredient. Maybe that’s not a requirement in South Korea where Sands Alive is made or in China, also listed on the pack but it sure is where I come from. Just because something is organic don’t mean it is safe. What is the stuff made from?

  66. Sharon says:

    I have just managed after much searching to find one description of Sands Alive that actually states what is in this compound. don’t be fooled by the All Natural ingredients or Organic claims. It is actually 98% sand and 2% synthetic Polymer (how is synthetic polymer a natural ingredient???

    There are two types of polymers: synthetic and natural. Synthetic polymers are derived from petroleum oil, and made by scientists and engineers. Examples of synthetic polymers include nylon, polyethylene, polyester, Teflon, and epoxy.

    It’s fun stuff but I think as parents providing the stuff for kids to play with we should insist that the information should be more honest.

    • I fully agree with you that in an ideal world. we as parents would know exactly what ingredients and what standards are used to test ingredients were fully disclosed, but they often aren’t. It is very challenging now a days to know exactly what things are made of. I did a lot of searching myself as well as enquiring with the company itself and didn’t come up with the information that you shared above. I am not saying it isn’t true, but it is hard to tell if the information didn’t come directly from the source. Thank you for sharing what you found.
