great find, heat added
CHEERS.. Saw the Argos offer earlier this week, that was a 15kg bag so this is better value.
Half that price in homebase...

That's building sand, not the same as play sand
what is difference between building sand and playing sand, seriously, or is it a marketing trick?

About £2.40 a bag!
Is this type edible ?

That's why I am asking, is it £2.40 for public relations and economical with the truth
Play sand is cleaned. Some building sand is very sharp and will wear your skin down.

As far as I'm concerned, sand is sand!..... I played on the beach, in sandpits and on building sites as a kid and I'm fine.

I'd guess building sand has a wider particle range distribution to help with compaction, play sand may be graded to a narrower particle size range.

I have kids and they get builders sand, they've yet to notice any difference.

Building sand can also leave nasty staining on skin (I know I tried )
Play sand is usually just kiln dried building sand. They may also claim its washed , but what exactly needs washing out of sand i do not know.
Sharp sand is the one to avoid for kids ( building sand has finer grains )

Play sand is good for filling the gaps between paving slabs, as it runs into the gaps better being completely dry.
Toys R Us £2.99

15KG bag of children's play sand, ideal for use in sandpits and sand tables. Washed, dried, and sieved to produce a safe, non-staining play sand suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Also fine for fish tanks
This is a good find. Was going to get some from argos but this is great for a fish tank. Needs washing and washing again.

Edit: It's very clean. Washed once and hardly any particles rose to the top. Very pleased with this stuff.
