Play Visions Expands Global Distribution

Sands Alive, a new line of organic sand activity sets from Play Visions, has added distribution partners in Europe, South America, Australia, and Canada. Play Visions has joined forces with Goliath Games for Europe, Character Options for the UK, Macro Toys for Latin America, Hunter Products for Australia, and Incredible Novelties for Canda.

An organic compound that feels soft and doughy, Sands Alive can be molded or poured—just like real sand. It can also be packed to create paths or roadways with a rolling tool, or shaped into castles, forts, and other creations. Sands Alive will launch in February at the American International Toy Fair in New York City.
