Sånd (rhymes with "wand") brings all the fun of beach sand indoors without any of the mess.

You can mold it, sculpt it, and write on it just like wet beach sand, but Sånd is completely dry and only sticks to itself — not your hands!

Sånd is an ingenious Swedish invention that is 98% regular sand and 2% polymer. But boy, oh boy, that two percent makes a huge difference!

Sånd simply has to be felt to be believed. It oozes when you squeeze it, yet you can sculpt it and it will hold its shape. And watching it flow is simply mesmerizing.

Sånd is non-toxic and never dries out. Ages 5 and up.

Bring the beach indoors with Sånd!

Sand by Brookstone is the curiously awesome material that retains many of the properties of beach sand, but not any of the mess. Thus, Sånd is designed to be used indoors!

Like putty, it's fun to knead. Like wet sand, it can be molded and sculpted. And like Play-Doh, it's super-easy to clean-up. If this were the 80s, Sånd would be straight-up Space Age.

Sånd by Brookstone is a fascinating material.

Once you feel it, you can't put it down

Sånd is one of those things that you simply must experience to believe. It's soft and pliable, yet it can be formed into complex structures and rigid shapes.

When squeezed, Sånd will flow like a thick milkshake and there's nothing quite as satisfying as simply massaging it with your hands.

Sand can be molded and sculpted, but it also flows like a liquid. Crazy!

Unique material can also be cut

Here's a fun treat courtesy of Sånd: mold a fun shape and then slice through it. You'll thank us for it later.

Fast and easy clean-up

Sånd sticks to itself, but not your hands. It also doesn't leave any residue behind on surfaces. So clean-up is swift and effortless.

Try writing or doodling on Sånd

Compress a bit of Sand and it becomes an impromptu tablet. Draw, sketch, doodle, and write to your heart's content. Not surprisingly, the official pen is amazingly adept at this task.

Draw, write, sketch, and erase in Sand.

A great office toy!

Keep a few jars of Sand on your desk as a creativity-inducing and stress-relieving Swiss Army Knife.

You can squeeze it like a stress ball, relax by watching it flow through your hands, and get inspired while using it as a building and sculpting material.

Sand by Brookstone is a wonderful office toy.

Kids will love this stuff!

After we got the shot of Jamie's kids playing with Sånd, we couldn't get rid of them! Eventually, we had to turn off all the lights in the studio to get them to stop playing with this stuff. Kids absolutely love Sånd.

Sand by Brookstone is designed for kids ages 5 and up.

Get the Sånd... and the box!

Sand by Brookstone is currently available in a 2.2-pound (1 kg) jar which is definitely enough for two kids to share. However, if you want to create large or complex structures, we would definitely recommend 4-6 jars.

We also recommend the SåndBox for those wishing to keep their Sand on a desk. It's a 9.5" x 9.5" tray made from natural wood that also includes a cylindrical mold and a knife-like (not sharp) shaping tool. Please note: The SåndBox does not include any Sånd.

Don't forget to add the Sandbox to your Sand purchase.
Please note that the Sandbox accessory does not come with any Sand.


Sånd is now available in two vibrant colors: blue and green. This begs the obvious question: "What color should I purchase? Original? Blue? Green?!" We think you know the answer: All three, son!

Please note that all colors are available in 2.2-pound jars. The only difference is the color!

Sand is available in three colors: original, blue, and green.
You can't go wrong with any of the colors of Sånd.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How come you're selling a Brookstone product?

Answer: Because Sånd is awesome. We know Brookstone is a "rival" retailer, but they clearly know how to make some cool stuff. Plus, they kind of begged us to make a video, and flattery will get you very far in this world.

Question: Does it really never dry out?

Answer: Yep. Sånd will never dry out. It's pretty amazing stuff.

Question: Why do you sometimes spell it Sånd and sometimes Sand by Brookstone?

Answer: Search engine optimization. Hey, just keeping it real, y'all.

Question: Seriously, though, does it make a mess?

Answer: No! We played with it non-stop in the studio for about two weeks while taking our photos and shooting the video and it was super easy to clean up.

Question: How much would I need to cover my body in Sånd?

Answer: A lot. We would guess you'd need about 200 pounds (approximately 90 jars). Maybe stick to tabletop Sånd activities?

How does it compare to Vat19's other kinetic sands?

Great question! Check out the video below to watch us compare and contrast Sånd, Floof, Mad Mattr, and Glow in the Dark Sand.
