CoolSand Ice Cream Kit Review (Lisse)

CoolSand Ice Cream Kit
What It Is

The CoolSand kit from Lisse is a kinetic sand activity kit. The kit comes loaded with everything you'll need for a day of indoor sand play including a nearly 3 pound bag of CoolSand, a container, multiple molds, and a playmat shaped like a placemat for pretend food play. 

Kids can use any of the tools included to shape and create their own CoolSand concoctions. 

Tips & Tricks for Use: 

  • CoolSand will never dry out or harden but it is affected by the humidity in the air. If it gets difficult to work with, you can spray the air to add a bit of moisture. But never spray or wet the sand directly. 
  • Keep it stored inside the include polybag when not in use. 

Is It Fun?

This is a fun kit for indoor sand play without the mess, which parents will appreciate; everything can be contained either in the included container or on the playmat. But what we really loved about this particular type of indoor sand kit (aside from the easy cleanup) is that the sand, once formed, really seemed to hold it's shape better than others we've tested in the past. 

In terms of developmental benefits, this CoolSand Ice Cream kit is also a good option for tactile sensory play and fantasy play thanks to the food play elements.

Who It’s For

The CoolSand kit from Lisse is a kinetic sand activity kit for kids ages 3 and up. It will appeal to kids and parents looking for an indoor sand kit that offers little mess, sensory play, and a bit of food play.

What To Be Aware Of

The sand is non-toxic but you'll want to keep it away from kids under 3.
