childtherapytoys is committed to bringing you the safest sand on the market. In conjunction with our supplier we are able to bring you sand that does not contain free silica or free quartz. It is 100% natural, environmentally friendly, and safe. All sands carried by childtherapytoys.com are non-toxic AP approved by The Arts and Crafts Material Institute (ACMI), conform to ASTM - D4236 and certified EN71-3 safe for use in Europe. Many regions throughout North America are re-examining the safety aspects of silica and quartz sands for indoor use such as with California's Proposition 65. Our sand is a safe alternative.
