Review: Canal Toys So Sand DIY Magic Sand

So Sand DIY

It’s time to get creative and take your imagination to another level.

Thanks to So Sand DIY, it’s now possible to create your own magic sand from scratch and enjoy 100% AMSR satisfaction.

AMSR is a feeling of well-being combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck, as experienced by some people in response to a specific gentle stimulus, often a particular sound.

Designing your own magic sand makes it easy to enjoy the fantastic sounds and smooth texture as you cut and mould your unique magic sand creations.

In the box:

  • 1 Sensory Studio
  • 5 Sand Bags
  • 5 Bags of coloured sand
  • 5 Decorations bags
  • 2 Sand Containers
  • 5 Tools
  • 3 Tools 2in1
  • 1 Mat with patterns

So Sand Equipment

The set is aimed at children aged 6+, taking magic sand away from pre-schoolers and putting it as an arts and crafts toy.

So Sand DIY kit

The sand comes in three plastic packets and you can then add glitter and colouring to it, to make it your your perfect shade. Sebby found it particularly satisfying mixing it all together and making shapes.


The sand is easy to shape, mould and cut with the 12 tools available, giving you the chance to create your very own sand masterpiece.


When you have finished your creation, the set comes with two handy sand containers, so you can keep the sand clean and safe and play all over again tomorrow.

So Sand DIY has an RRP of £24.99 and is available from all good toy shops.

  10. This looks like so much fun! My kids love playing with sand and this looks like something the two of them would enjoy which is rare to find given their age difference

    I could play with magic sand ALL day long! Sadly we don’t have it in the house very often as the children just can’t stop themselves from throwing it and embedding it in to every surface!

    My children are so well behaved until it comes to anything remotely messy play then they are like wild animals!

    Do you think I could buy this and play with it in secret? It sounds amazing!

    This sounds like a fun way to play with sand! I have to admit I keep meaning to try some kenetic sand as a sensory method for myself.
