Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by qttxchik Good play sand, just like it says
I think it's funny, the comments complaining about dusty sand that doesn't build up too well (for sandcastles)...the packaging says to add a bit of water to keep the dust down, and when compared to sand from a beach (which is exactly what it feels like), you have to add water to that sand too, right?
Anyway, great value; 3 bags put enough sand in our rectangular sandbox and there weren't any sticks or foreign debris in these 3...

I am not sure why some people say this isn't good sand for a child's sandbox because when I bought 1 bag( 50 pounds) and brought it home, put it in sandbox it was the PERFECT CHILD-FRIENDLY SAND.
I HIGHLY recommend this sand to anyone with kids.
I do wish however the people working at home depot would be kinder to their customers instead of just talking to teach other and ignoring the customers. what should have been a 10 minute trip lasted 30 minutes

In case you're wondering, as I looked online to find the info and couldn't find it, it takes 11 bags to fill a 4ft by 4 ft by 4inch deep sand pit. Slightly dusty, but it's sand, so I expected that. No sticks, but had small stones. Kiddo loves playing it in and the stones don't bother anything. Add cinnamon to keep bugs out if it.

I actually used the play sand for my "buried treasure" theme for Trunk-or-Treating. It was very easy to work with, and clean-up was a breeze. The kids loved it, too!

I bought this to put in a 60 pound sandbag I use for training. It was clean (if you can call sand CLEAN) & had no sticks or stones in the bag I got.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UpsetPopPop NOT FOR Kids Sand Box
I purchased six 50lb bags of Quikrete "Premium Play Sand" from Home Depot and when I cut the first bag open I was surprised to see small black pieces of leaves and sticks in the sand. The bag reads "Prefect for use in playboxes ... Screened, washed and dried". Well I opened a second bag only to find the same problem, the rest is going back and my granddaughter is upset. I would NOT recommend this product. The attached picture shows the things I screened out of the sand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoolGuy The sand is of good quality
This is by far the best play sand I've seen in stores. I looked at places like toysrus, homedepot, lowes and other home improvement stores and found this to be the most bang for your buck. I bought 20 bags of sand for a 5x5x12 sand pit which filled up about 1/2. I thought that 20 bags (1/2 ton) of sand should be enough but to my surprise, it only filled up to about half and seems like I could use another 10 bags (at the least). So if you are building a sand pit keep that in mind. I bought it at original price of three dollars and seventy eight cents a bag but then within few days it went on sale @ homedepot for two fifty but home depot gladly refunded the difference (very nice! that's what I call worry free shopping!). Lowes still had it at the original price but I'm sure they would have matched HD's sale price though.
Good quality sand
Relatively good price (compared to other stores - toysrus was selling similar bag (diff brand) for $6 a bag)
No debris or other foreign materials (its clean!!!)
Some bags were torn.
Dusty a little bit
Transporting is a real pain in the neck if you don't have a pickup truck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by philandsybil For a 50 lb bag of sand, the price is great!
Excellent price on a bag of nice, clean play sand. I use it as a substrate for my tortoise, Agnes. Mix with one bag Earthgro1 cu. ft. Topsoil, and your tortoise too can be in sandy paradise!
