I purchased this because I had remembered playing with my parents Wham O Magic Window as a kid. This is not the same, there is far less "sand" and a lot more open space. It is very pretty and I am enjoying turning it around to get a different design.
Gift for my husband who is hard to shop for. He loved this. I will agree with another reviewer that I wasn’t expecting the frame to look so nice! It’s fun to watch. Would totally buy this again!

We ordered the white frame with the blue and white sand because it looked like an ocean and felt peaceful. Mom loved it.
So beautiful. Great size. I want one for my self. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It was for a white elephant gift and I wanted to pick it myself.
Amazing landscape gift for my Mom and one for my boyfriend! Highly recommended for any cool person in your life!!

Much nicer than what i expected. Soothing to take a few minutes watching the sand change.
I have enjoyed my sand picture. The quality is good for the price. The only thing is the tiny plastic stands seem a bit unstable. Be very careful to make sure you have it exact.

Good item and it was appreciated as a gift, so all is good.
I put it in my office for when I need a calming distraction. The piece is mesmerizing and beautiful. Each 'work of art' is unique.
This was packaged classy as if a gift. Even had a blank card.
This is a beautiful product. So relaxing watching the sand fall to create different landscapes. Came very well packed. Expensive looking. The overall size is 8 1/2 x 7. A perfect size to sit on a desk, where mine is.
My mother-in-law wanted one of these for Christmas so we found it here and got it! She loved it!
Beautiful pictures but major distraction for myself and coworkers. No regrets! Would make for a great gift
It was a gift for my adult Son to help manage his stress. He really likes it and enjoys moving the sand around. He says it does calm him. Big hit. Would recommend.
I love the ocean but live far away from it. This lets me enjoy this relaxing effect of my favorite place on earth.
Love this product. The scene is never the same always changes. Grandchildren love to watch it and flip it over when it’s done.
This is so fun and mesmerizing to watch! I should have gone with the type that is built into the flippable frame though, because whenever I want to flip this, I have to take it out of the stand and my fingerprints get all over the glass. It’s also such a fun object for kids to watch, but it’s sharp on the edges and the glass seems easily breakable. I would recommend the framed/flippable kind if buying for a family/child. That way children don’t need close supervision to flip and watch.
This was a birthday gift for my wife. She seen one in a gift shop a few months ago and wanted one. She loves it. The sand flows slow enough and it comes with instructions in what to do if the sand flows too fast or if there's an air bubble etc. Recommended!

My daughter remembered these, from her childhood. I had it sent to her and the family. They really enjoy it.
Surprisingly nice for price, and really like the professional looking frame. Made a great office gift for my wife, and she loves the color.
Sometimes it drops quickly, sometimes it even gets stuck. Depends on how you flip it, is how the air bubble wall makes the patterns and speed of transfer. Flip it evenly for slow, and turn at an angle for a quicker pace. You can even hold it and guide the sand into shapes.
I like everything about this except I wish it would fall slower and make more of the mountain/valley scenery. It came packaged very well. It is fun to watch and see what scene is next.
This sand art is very well made, beautiful heavy glass frame, looks and feels like crystal to me. Beautiful color of the ocean, I am so happy I ordered this sand art in the 12 inch. I think this would be a great gift!
My mom had one of these years ago and found it not too long ago but it was all dried up. So for Christmas I bought her this one. She's going to love it!
Bought as a gift and she loves it.
Very nice product. Packaged well. Works well.
Heavy duty and beautiful colors
Very cool. I love it!
This is one lovely piece of art ! It came wrapped very secure.

can move it between meetings and phone calls. Quiet stress relief!
It's very pretty. It's a gift for a family member. I think the sand moves VERY slow and I feel like in order to get it to all move down you have to hold it sideways a bit. Otherwise it seems like it will work for a present.
This reminds me of my childhood. It’s calming. Just like watching fish swim in a tank but less money & maintenance. LOL
Arrived packaged perfectly.
I purchased this for myself. It's very pretty and looks great on my dresser, matching the color scheme. I've learned how to manipulate the turning to make a wide variety of "pictures".
The product is exactly as described. I looks good.

This is the nicest one I have purchased in decades. My family had a huge one until it got stepped on. I would like a little better base, but this one is really neat.
I LOVE IT. It was just I needed. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Every time I walk by I flip it to get a different picture
I've always wanted sand art and am so glad I finally purchased this. So fun to watch the different scenes that appear. I only wish I would have gotten one connected to a frame so I could just flip it instead of having to pick it up and turn it.
Lovely product to give as a gift.
