quickly devolves into "Houston, we have a problem!"
Marianna has been intrigued with the idea of Moon Sand since seeing the glitzy mini-informercial on TV, so she was allowed to earn it by sleeping in her bed all night (as opposed to sneaking down to the floor of ours between the hours of 3-5 as she's been in the habit of doing as of late). Today was the big day she got to bring it out for the first time, but I've got to admit, the contents were more than a little disappointing to us both. The pristine castles and amazing solar systems advertised on the commercial were a far cry from the pile of colored sand we found in front of us.
"Easy clean up" is printed in bold on the packaging.
I guess "easy clean up" is a very subjective idea.
It's my hope that some of you who have only toyed with the thought of bringing some moon sand into your home might read this and reconsider. Buy some playdough instead...same idea with much more productive results!
