DD is getting a sandbox for her first birthday next week and in researching sand choices to fill it with, I've come across some mixed opinions. Some sources say that regular "play" sand from the hardware store is perfectly fine, despite containing a warning that it contains silica, a potentially hazardous substance. Stiil, there are sources advocating only the use of their safe play sand, which would cost about $200, versus the $20 the regular play sand would cost. I can't imagine sand at the beach or playgrounds is anything than ordinary sand and dd plays in those places often. Any idea on this one?
Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!
