Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader - Review

My five year old son C is all about textures and whilst we have heard of Kinetic Sand (the number one sand brand in the UK), we'd never actually tried it to see what it was like and we didn't even know that Kinetic Rock was a thing!

C loves things like play dough and has a sensory box full of squishy things that he can squeeze and mould when he is feeling angry or upset so I thought that the texture of Kinetic Rock would be right up his street. We received the Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader to try and boy, was I right! He absolutely loves it and even sat playing with it for three hours straight upon first opening.

The box includes:
  • 8oz of Kinetic Rock gold
  • 1 deluxe construction vehicle
  • 3 attachable vehicle tools
  • 5 accessories (builder and tools)
As soon as we opened everything out, C got stuck right in with mashing together and squeezing the rock. It really does stick together! It comes with a little fake diamond that can be buried inside the rock and C's favourite thing to do was put the figure inside his digger and drill the rock out, then he went on to either switching to the construction worker holding the pick or shovel or switching the drill on the vehicle for the scoop. He did struggle a little bit switching the tools that attach to the vehicle but that was a strength issue for him, I had to step in and help.

Whilst playing, C liked to pretend and give the construction worker a voice, imagining what he would say. He liked figuring out how to use each tool and seeing which one would help him find the buried diamond first. It was lovely to see him using his imagination and trying to work out for himself which tools did what. He really enjoyed creating a real-life construction site. It is a really great hands-on toy which is brilliant for aiding a child's development.

I did umm and ahh over putting down a tablecloth but the Kinetic Rock is so easy to clean up and leaves absolutely no residue on the table. A parent's dream!

The Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader retails at £16.99 and is suitable for children aged 3+. You can purchase it from all good retailers nationwide.
