I love tactile things. Things with texture and that can me molded and shaped. Enter Sandzini! Sandzini is a fun molding clay the likes of which this little Dragyn has never seen. And with that in mind...
Disclaimer: I was given a Sandzini Ice Cream Parlor creator set to test. All opinions are my own.
Sandzini feels like a mixture of sand and glue. However it isn't too sticky and stays mostly self contained. I did feel the need to wash my hands after playing but that's just common hygiene. For the adults out there the grainy texture felt like body scrub. It almost felt like I was getting a mani!
The ice cream parlor creator set came with 6 colors. Bright blue, neon purple, yellow, pink, green and brown. The brown was for the cones but really when there is neon purple to be had that's what will be used. I love that the colors were bright and fun.
Sandzini also came with a rolling pin, a cutting tool and rolling slicer. All made of kid friendly plastic. Really kid friendly. I mean I rubbed each against my hand to see if they were even the least bit sharp (do not do what I do!) They weren't at all. Very soft and smooth. They just look like kitchen tools.
Sandzini is incredibly easy to work with and mold. Don't get me wrong I wasn't making perfect ice cream cones on the first try but I was still able to shape things easily. What I love most about this set are the instructions that tell kids how to make the stuff they see on the box. Because I hate when the box has all these cool things and then there's no way to duplicate them. Kids can very easily recreate what is on the box or come up with their own fun creations.
Sandzini is great fun and the perfect gift for the creative kid (or adult) who likes to work with their hands. And you can win some! Many will enter one will win. Rules in the rafflecopter and when in doubt go here.
