Kinetic Sand Starter Set
Price: $49.97

Long ago were the days of playing in a sandbox and running away from girls with cooties.

Even though you’re still running away cootie ridden girls (good call, you don’t want to catch the adult version), we know the days of unlimited playtime are gone and have since been replaced with sitting in a cubicle staring at a computer screen for hours on end.

Thankfully, it’s now possible to bring back the sandbox days and build a sandcastle right on your own little desk.

No, we’re not suggesting you import pounds and pounds of sand and make your own little office beach (although that would be awesome), we’re talking about Brookstone’s sand. Their fancy kinetic sand is perfect for taking a break from work and reliving the good days when you didn’t have to stare at excel sheets for eight hours a day. This stuff acts like wet sand and sticks together all on its own, so you can build your own little sand village without even having to fill up a bucket at the water cooler. What makes it better is this sand literally never dries out and it magically only sticks to itself, making it super easy to hide the evidence of your mid-day playtime.

So go ahead and make a little sandcastle when your boss isn’t looking, we won’t tell.
