Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 Loader Review: Like most children Monkey loves Kinetic Sand so when we were offered the chance to try out the Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 Loader set I knew it would likely be a big hit. Made by the the number one sand brand in the UK – Kinetic Sand. Turns out I was right, Monkey really enjoyed playing with the set and has already requested that we put another set on his Birthday wish list.

So what do you get in the box?

  • Instructions
  • Digger – which has three different attachments including a hand turning drill. You need to assemble the digger by popping the wheels onto it. It only takes a couple of seconds.
  • Moveable workman man and tools – the man also needs to be assembled
  • Gold Kinetic Rock – which is made from natural rock and magically clumps together.

It only takes a minute or so to assemble the digger and the little workman and then Monkey was free to play. He started by trying out all the different attachments for the digger which easily snap onto the front of the digger. His favourite was the drill as you can turn it by hand to create a hole in the stone. I love anything which gives him the option for hands on play.

Then he started to form little gold clusters to move around with the digger bucket. He likes to watch gold rush on TV so he started to pretend it was gold before hiding and finding the sliver gem which also comes with the set.

Kipper was quite taken with the set too. Although it is aimed at ages 3+ due to the small parts that doesn’t stop Kipper being obsessed with the digger.

Things we like about the Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 Loader:

  • I was pleasantly surprised to see just how much the rock clumps together. Although I have found the odd stray bit the majority of it stays together and is easy to form back together to store.
  • Which meant its super easy to clear up so its great for Monkey and me!
  • The inclusion of the digger acts as the prefect prop for imaginative play
  • Its also made will, easy to assemble and feels like a good quality toy
  • Its a relatively small set which means storage is easy.
  • The rock is very tactile, I can understand why its attractive to children you cant help but want to poke your fingers in it!
  • No batteries required!

The Kinetic Rock set has an RRP of £16.99 and is available from all good toy shops nationwide and online at retailers such as amazon. There are also other sets to accompany this one and I can see us buying some more since it went down so well.

  1. Awww look at little kipper joining in the fun! They are so adorable together! My daughter loves kinetic sand. This sounds and looks like a really fabulous set! And a great one for imaginative play.

  2. I can never decide if I love or hate kinetic sand, but the kids certainly love it! Arlo would love this, anything digger related he’s all over! I also love the easy clean up of kinetic sand!

  3. That looks like an awesome set, and something which my two could play with together (although I’m thinking that the gold sand would be quite appealing to eat!) #BloggerClubUK

  4. Ah they look like they are enjoying that! I might have to check out kinetic sand for my little ones. Looks very fun but minimal mess. Win win. #bloggerclubuk

  5. Oh this looks fab! I know that my 5 year old would love this! In fact it’s his birthday in only a few months so I’m thinking this might be a great pressie for his list! #BloggerClubUK

    My daughter loves playing with this stuff! 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

  7. I’ve been thinking about getting this for , I think the rock looks less stressful than the sand, plus he love a digger! #bloggerclubuk

  8. I love the fact that this set comes with a digger, so kids can play imaginatively straight away, unlike the Kinetic Sand. I always thought that they were missing out on a trick of not including sand toys, trucks, diggers etc in the Kinetic sand sets.

  9. Oh wow this is fab! I haven’t seen this before, my kids love kinetic sand but also vehicles too, so I love that this combines the two! My kids would go crazy for it!

  10. Oh wow this is fab! I haven’t seen this before, my kids love kinetic sand but also vehicles too, so I love that this combines the two! My kids would go crazy for it!

  11. We had something similar a while ago and the boys loved it, but we found the rocks just went everywhere. I’m glad to hear the recipe has been modified now to stick together more.

  12. I always see the adverts for kinetic sand and rock and our boys have never asked for it but it looks like a great activity, something they can play with again and again #bloggerclubuk
