On a recent trip to Target, I scored on some purchases in the clearance aisle. It can be so hit or miss there but I happened to get there on a day that they were marking down a bunch of toys including Aqua Sand. Now we’ve been seeing the commercials for this product for over a year. My kids have asked for it and it’s been one of those things I’ve silently said no way to. It looked messy and annoying.
But when Target had several Aqua Sand toys at clearance prices, I thought we’d give it a shot.
My kids love this toy. And seriously people, I don’t know how they do it, but the sand really does stay dry. Put it in the water, sift it out and it comes out totally dry. I want to say that they spent a good five hours plus playing with this toy on and off outside yesterday. All it takes is a little water.
And truthfully, sure, it’s a tiny bit messy. My kids got a little wet, some sand ended up on my deck. But it’s mess factor wasn’t much worse than an afternoon of Play Doh.
Check out your local Target to see if they have Aqua Sand on clearance. Or get Aqua Sand on Amazon for discounted prices.
