Kinetic Sand Bakery Boutique Patisserie from Spin Master is a sand making delight where you can create your own bakery items out of moulded sand and display them in the cleverly designed box that opens out into a bakery window display.
The kit contains everything you need, including two bags of brightly coloured sand, a selection of moulds and some cardboard pieces to add to the lid of your box and create your bakery display. The box is simple to assemble providing shelves to put your creations on and a centrepiece in the middle for a showstopper cake!
The children couldn’t wait to get stuck into the sand as the texture is really quite therapeutic between your fingers, and being non sticky it’s a pleasure to work with. The moulds are quite easy to operate, you just need to pack them tightly, give them a few taps and they do produce some really precisely moulded shapes. There are also two press out cutters which work really well once you get used to them. You need to hold the plunger up as you press down and then lift the shape out.
As you can see below, the children’s creations kept coming and they quite quickly filled the shelves with their cakes. They enjoyed trying to make each one different and see what different combinations they could come up with. The cakes held together quite well and as long as you don’t touch them too much they will stay as they are until you break them up again.
I think the finished bakery display looks great and the children were certainly proud of their efforts. I think having a backdrop to put their items on really made a difference and added to the play value.
What’s great about this kinetic sand is that once you made something, you can break it up again and start again, which makes this playset great value for money as I know it is something my children will come back to again and again!
