Building castles at home with Cra-Z-Sand from Character: A Review

The children love playing with sand and building castles and sculpting other figures. We recently had a wonderful time at the beach in Cornwall and the children enjoyed their days just sitting and playing with sand.

They obviously didn’t have enough and wanted to spend more time there. So did I.


Luckily, we didn’t have to stop the buidling castles bit as we were sent this Cra-Z-Sand Deluxe Playset to review.

This is a welcome product in the house as it is so easy to use and keeps the children occupied for long periods of time.

The Deluxe set came with a tray, Cra-Z-Sand in a Tan colour (the colour of sand) and some tools to help sculpt.


The children could not wait to get started. They played with it and made castles and figures and generally enjoyed themselves just running their fingers through it and seeing it ‘move’. Because of its texture, it flows easily and it is perfect for moulding.

The best bit is that it is so easy to clean up and does not dry out. It is perfect for playing indoors with.

The texture ensures that it sticks together so the end result is quite detailed and good to look at.


It is suitable for children over 3 and is great for creative and imaginative play as you can create anything you put your mind to. It is also good for motor development.

This deluxe set is priced at £19.99 and is good value for money. I would recommend this as a lovely product for children. Of course, like all products like this, you do need to be careful not to ingest it so keep it away from little ones.

Cra-Z-Sand comes in different colours too and the children are after me to get them the other colours now.
