Fun but can be messy! – Instant Man-Made Snow Powder Reviews

posted by JoshL on 12/27/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very neat effect! Put the TINY packet of powder into a large glass, add water, and it swells to overfill the glass. The powder will expand into a heaping pile that will cover a large plate. Once expanded, the 'snow' can be packed and formed. It can also be dried which allows it to shrink back to a smaller size for future re-use.
Cons:
Can be messy! The expanded 'snow' particles tend to stick to anything they touch so it can become kind of messy. You probably wouldn't want children playing with it. It takes forever to dry out and it never goes completely back to its original condition. The tin can and tiny shovel are useless.
Other:
It would be great if you could buy the powder alone without the can and shovel.
Bottomline:
This is a fun product; if you are easily amused like I am, this really is a neat toy.
