How cute are they? And how fun does Kinetic Sand Ice Cream look? Yummy too!

I scream, you scream for Kinetic Sand Ice Cream

If you’ve never experienced the joy that is Kinetic Sand, you’re in for a treat! This stuff is amazing for sensory play and perfect for kids 3+. The sand is extra soft, sticks to itself, and moulds together so you can make different creations. No messy cleanup, and for that alone we think it’s a winner!

It’s also a great sensory toy so as you’ll see from the review video above, they all commented about how soft it felt and how lovely it was to hold in your hands.

What’s especially great about the Kinetic Sand Ice Cream Treats is that it comes with heaps of accessories to make different treats. The kit comes with an ice cream tray, waffle maker, ice cream cone, sundae dish, plus tons of toppers too!

Oh, and did we mention the sand comes in three different flavours that actually smells like ice cream? Vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, oh my! This was a massive highlight for our kid testers. But all of them also loved all the accessories, the different colours and the texture.

10/10! Or, as Stanley tells us, “1 Billion out of 10″.

Kinetic Sand review: What the parents had to say

[Ava and her sister] loved every minute of playing with the Kinetic Sand Ice Cream Treats. Five stars and I would give more stars if could!” – Sarah G, mum to Ava, 6

It’s become a favourite part of playtime in the toy kitchen. Once she gets started with the Kinetic Sand ice cream she will go on for hours carefully making pretend food treats to serve us.” – Rebekah B, mum to Annabeth, 6 (and Olivia)

Amazing. Awesome. So..MUCH..FUN!! Once opened, they played quietly for HOURS. Literally HOURS. The things that they liked the most were that you could “smell the colour” and loved how it falls apart, feels so soft, feels so good, but then all just stay together. They found it easy and so much fun to mould, play with, and experiment with different things with it.

With Chloe being very sensitive, she found it especially calming and comforting to play with. As a parent I would totally also recommend it for children with sensory issues. It really is amazing for them.” – Fiona M, mum to Chloe and Gemma, 7
