Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SK Grey sand with a chalky film.
I plan to return the unopened bags, but am so displeased I will throw the bags we dumped into our
sandbox for our grandkids into our compost bin. The bag did say Play Sand that was screened, washed and dried. The printing on the bag was so poor I could not read much of the other material printed. We paid what we thought was an excellent price at Home Depot, but unfortunately was a waste of time and money.
The sand does not resemble the sand on our Oregon beaches. It is dirty, grey and left a chalky film. Wetting it down would keep the dust down, but we are still left with dirty sand that resembles more small pebbles than sand. I generally do not write reviews, but this product has earned this poor rating.

Spent the weekend building a sandbox for grand kids. Very disappointed when put the first bag of sand in. Horribly dirty, might as well just put dirt in box. Will return the rest.

You MUST wet the sand down to avoid dust. If you do not add water, this product is extremely dusty and dirty. Adding water makes a huge difference. The sand is clean and same consistency as sand you would find at the beach.

Bought this for a lizard terrarium. The sand is not like play sand at all. Its abrasive and sharp, more like grout sand. I threw it out in my flower bed and bought real play sand.

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...

We bought this for my son's playbox. The first round we bought was nice and clean and little to no dust. The second round we bought was very dusty, had a grey tinge to it and felt chalky on your hands. Was very concerned about dust inhalation. I wrote a bad review on this product giving it 1star (actually a little unfair because the first round of sand we had purchased was great). Since writing this review, Quikrete has contacted me and went above and beyond to fix my issue and find out what caused this issue to begin with. I tried to change this review and that is not possible neither is taking it down. I would completely recommend this product to anyone at this point because if it isn't 100% right this company will fix the issue. By far the best customer service I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

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
