Disclosure for this Sands Alive Glow Review posting:  I received the Sands Alive Glow toy to keep and review for the purpose of writing this posting but all opinions are strictly my own.

You are all in for a real treat today for this Sands Alive Glow Review because the audiologist man at my house is appearing as a guest blogger!


My son says that he want to be a scientist when he grows up.  He likes to create things and play that he is a scientist.  Sometimes that scientist in him is creating helpful things but many times he thinks he is a mad scientist, hence that is what he was for Halloween last month.  So when we received the Sands Alive! Glow in the Dark starter set I knew that this would be just up his alley.  Why, you ask?  Well I know my son and the sand will turn into a mad scientist experiment.  He will pretend that his creation will take over his room and eventually our house.  (This is pretty much what happened when he started to play with it).

Therefore one day when he was out and about I brought out the Sands Alive kit to see what it was all about.  It comes with sand that doesn’t get everywhere.  I repeat doesn’t get everywhere and is easy to clean up.  The kit comes with one pound of sand, a UV pen and a UV LED glasses.

The instructions say to open the sand, mix it up and let it breathe for a few hours.  Well I thought he won’t be home for a few hours so that will be great.  I mixed up the sand and it has a very interesting texture that is hard to describe but it does not stick to your hands, it molds together and if you need to clean it up you just pick up some of the sand and push it onto the other sand and up it comes off of the table.  Pretty cool!!  I was impressed with the UV pen and the UV LED glasses.  Any kid (or adult, you know I had to try them) would love these things and the best part is they came with batteries already in them so all I had to do was turn them on.  There I let it sit until he came home.

He arrived and I told him all about it.  Soon enough the glasses were on and he had his hands deep in the sand.  He first was making a volcano, and then it turned into that creation that was then going to take over the house and the world.  He would use the pen to make it glow in the dark.  He would turn the lights off and see his creation glow.  He continued to play with this all evening.

Even my daughter couldn’t resist playing with the glow in the dark sand.  There was definitely enough for both of them to share and when they were done clean up was simple.  We just put all the sand back together and there wasn’t a piece of sand that was lost.  I am sure they will be playing with it for weeks and months to come.
