Answer: 
No, absolutely not. This sand is nothing like play sand. It more of a combo of dust and granules larger than play sand. If this sand got wet I'm sure it would be half mud.
Play sand costs the same or less for the same amount. I would choose play sand over this for a sandbox 10 out of 10 times.

Answer: 
May or may not be helpful, but a good friend of mine whose husband is a builder has used this kind of coarse sand in their kids sandbox, so I plan to try it. I might mix it with a couple of bags of finer stuff, but I think it's definitely usable if you don't mind it looking like builder's sand.

Answer: 
No. It specifically says on the bag not to use it for a sandbox. It would be to coarse from what I've seen.

Answer: 
Sand doesn't burn. Just because it hasn't been "tested" doesn't mean you can't use common sense. You could build a fire at the beach right? Beach sand is washed by the water too. No different here folks.

60 lb. Multi-Purpose Sand is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Good sand for paver base above gravel and between pavers. It comes slightly damp so it is ready for tamping right out of the bag.

The Sakrete Sand served the purpose. I could buy sand to be delivered and dumped on my driveway, but I did not want to shovel it, though it would be cheaper than buy bagged sand. I bought 50 bags of Sakrete sand and they were delivered to me on the second day. I used this sand to lay the concrete blocks on it to make a large platform for the fire pit and chairs on my backyard. Thanks Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sand bags for traction The picture looks like a box but they are actually bags. Worked perfectly for my intended use. I needed some extra weight in my 3/4 ton pick up so I bought 6 bags and have 3 on each side of my 5th wheel hitch directly over the axel. No more slipping. I'm very happy with the solution and the price.
