It's as close to Mars as most kids will get - and that's what makes it so fun. Magical Expanding Sand is hydrophobic sand with many of the same properties as Martian sand. Safe for play on dry land and underwater, kids can sculpt underwater and once they take the sand out it magically dries almost instantly.
Magical Speedy Snow works at any temperature; just add water and watch in amazement as life-like, fluffy white snow grows. Kids can create their snow in a bowl, in their hands, wherever they like, temperature is no obstacle. The bucket makes over 15 gallons of snow that can last for weeks without rehydrating.
