Kinetic Sand: 98% Sand, 2% Silly Putty Ingredients

kinetic-sand-toy.jpg

This is a video demonstration of Kinetic Sand, a sand play toy made from 98% sand, and 2% Polydimethyl siloxane, a "silicon-based organic polymer...particularly known for its unusual rheological (or flow) properties." It makes the sand act...weird. Also, at $45 for 5kg (~11 pounds) of Kinetic Sand, it sounds like either polydimethyl siloxane is really, really expensive, or somebody's price gouging. Just saying, I'll sell you a bag of cat litter mixed with paint thinner for $10. It might not act the same, but neither will your kids after they eat a handful.

C OINTINEU FOR HTE VIDEO (I'm typing with my elbows).

Thanks to Roland, who may or may not be a headless Thompson gunner. In my mind he is though.

    But, does it blend?

    So basically you wad or cut or mold it into vague shapes and then...uh...watch it crumble apart at the slightest touch? Over and over again? Sounds fascinating.

  • It's interesting that the ad only ever shows adults playing with it. Which is fitting cuz right now I'm thinking, where was this when I was in college? I was following the Grateful Dead in college, if that gives you an idea.

  • Billie Hutcherson

    My grand daughter who is 4 played with it for hours she loves it I wish u could buy it in biger pks

    I was just thinking that. Isn't that just Squand? I had purple Squand!

    Warning: if Kinectic Sand touches old-fashion sand then old-fashion sand becomes Kinetic Sand. What could go wrong? <cough>Ice-9</cough>

  • Awesome reference.

  • Benjamin Cody Collins

    Why does it matter that it is gluten free ??? Are we feeding this stuff to the kids or letting them play with it ???

  • Stephen Ingrum

    DO YOU know how many people die every year from gluton???? oh, zero, that's right- it's just this year's carb.

  • Michael Maniquet

    ignorant statement Stephen completely uneducated :( and fyi people you Skin is like a sponge absorbs everything it comes in contact with.... should be self explanatory from this point on as to why its gluten free.... Gluten is a major cause of inflammation in the human body. Everybody is sensitive to gluten on some level some eg celiac disease are Extremely allergic but gluten is a foreign body inside our digestive system so the immune system treats it as not good hence all the inflammation inside the gut and body..... Granted most wont eat this sand again the skin absorbs some of the sands make up so if glutens in there and your more sensitive than others gonna be some problems. You would think this kinda knowledge is common sense alas your comment has proven my thought process wrong.

  • Abby

    Guess you've never heard of celiac disease. I don't know how many die from it, but they probably end up in the hospital before it gets that serious. Try to educate yourself a little before doing something like commenting on things you're really uneducated about.
