Does anyone know if the color will stain clothes?

@niloc225: I don't think the sand will leech color.

Does the sand work in aquariums and terrariums?

Our sand is very popular for use in aquariums. It will not dissolve and is safe for fish, creatures and plants. Please remove fish before adding sand and allow 24 hours for sand to fully settle before reintroducing fish.

If you can stick it in a tank full of water and have fish in it then it should be safe. I doubt any fish would like dye in their water.

I am strongly tempted to get this just to use in the garden. The choice of colors is almost overwhelming.

My question is, Does anyone every buy "Peach" or "Tan"?

What are the dimensions? How many pounds would it take to fill a 4'x4' sandbox 6" deep for instance?

If you're planning to get white sand, make sure you go to this page: http://safesand.stores.yahoo.net/ornatplaysan.html to get 50 lbs for $60

@superllama7: I think we'd all rather just go directly to the deal, don't you?

@akrasian: Fifty pounds of sand is actually smaller than you'd think. A small sandbox will probably take at least 100 pounds. The companion deal to this holds 300 pounds of sand (hence my suggestion to purchase sand from Lowe's, or Toys R Us, in the related deal).

@shrdlu: If you choose white sand from the deal page, you'll be charged $75 for 50 lbs. If you poke around a little, or click on the link that I posted, you'll be charged $60 for 50 lbs of white sand. Soo... Not sure about the condescending tone of your reply.

I don't know if they grade it, but...coarse.

@superllama7: The site that is featuring the colored sand deal also sells white playsand. $60 for 50 lbs. It's on the left of the screen at the top.

@superllama7: Sorry if you're offended. There are so many similar style links, lately, on deals, that I made assumptions about your motivations that were probably unfair. I'm wrong all the time. This is probably one of them.

walmart around here stocks this stuff in 15 pound bags (I think it was 15lbs) every summer, and at end of summer they usually have it on clearance for under $5 per bag. Filled my kids' sandbox with purple sand 2 years ago for about $30.
