    Who has used it? How do you use it? Do you have to add water to it?

    I love moon sand it feels very differenet. I've never added water to it but I've heard that it repels water.

    I've never used it, but the teacher next door to me has some and it's really cool stuff. I don't think you add water to it. It sticks together like wet sand would to make sculptures, then you just crumble it apart when you're through. I think the grains of sand are coated with silicone or something to make it stick together.

    I didn't care for it. I bought some for my son for Christmas and I wont buy it again. It's so messy, crumbly, and it doesn't hold together like the commerical states. JMO though. Perhaps we got a cruddy batch of it.

    No you don't add water.

    The kids love it. It is very messy but so easy to sweep up I don't care. It's worth the mess.

    I work in a teacher store and we had it on display and what I saw made me not want to buy it! At first it was really neat, it was like real sand but would stick together. After awhile, with people playing in it, it would stick together but it did not crumble as easily, it was almost like really grainy playdough. Also, if you tried to use the "sand toys" that came with it, you could put the sand in it, but it wouldn't come out in a shape at all -- it would get stuck.

    I would not buy it.

    It's little beads...like ones you would find in a bean bag chair, stuck together with sticky gooey stuff. You can mold it and stick it to things. They have it at Walmart. My kids love it, but I have noticed how easy and fast it dries out.
