Great stocking stuffer

Bought a few Instant Snow in a Can to go in my niece/nephews Xmas stocking. A little bit of fun mixed with science. They loved it and so did the adults especially as we don't get snow where we live.

Brilliant stuff

Really pleased with the Instant Snow in a Can. It expands in water really well to more than double the amount. I use this snow as decoration inside my candle lit lanterns.

Instant Snow in a Can

The kids were very excited when their Uncle received a can of 'instant snow' and wanted to see it work immediately so off to the kitchen we went. After a few minutes, it had stopped growing but we were left with what actually looks and kinda feels like snow at room temperature! Stepping aside we let the kids in to play with it. Snowmen, angels and all the good fun that can be achieved with the real stuff was being done on a much smaller scale indoors, in warm room. Great fun and a good product. Will buy again next year!

Does what it says on the tin!

This Instant Snow in a Can is great. The only downside is waiting for it to return to the powdered state to make it snow again.

Snow in a can

This Instant Snow in a Can is a great product. I've only used one spoonful so far and it produced loads of snow. This is good fun and no mess afterwards.

Insane amounts of snow

I've never woken up and thought "I'd quite like my house filled with snow". But my life has changed since receiving the instant snow in a can. A teaspoon's worth filled my kitchen. A tablespoon's worth and my cat was looking rather unhappy. After half the can, my cat was on the roof and I had to evacuate the entire upstairs of the house! I'm considering buying 5 cans so that I can have a Scrooge McDuck style swimming pool - filled with snow!

InstantSnow in a can

The Instant Snow in a Can was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. As it is a Christmas gift I will have to wait to see the end result.

This Instant Snow in a Can is a quaint and fun little gift. It was a really nice way to get in the Christmas spirit especially since there wasnt any snow.

This Instant Snow in a Can was so good. My kids were blown away, as were the adults. Parents you really need to get this for the Christmas period.

you have to buy this!!

This Instant Snow in a Can is incredible! I had to eat my words as I followed the instructions and saw snow appear before my very eyes. Really was amazing and so much snow produced! Used it down the path to my house for a Christmas party to give the illusion it had been snowing. My friends were so confused as it looked so real! A real party starter and a great value buy. Would recommend this to anyone having a Christmas party or anyone who wants a white Christmas without waiting for the weather.

snow in the sunshine

I bought this as a present for a friend going home to the Caribbean for Christmas. She had said she wanted snow at Christmas so Instant snow in a Can will make her wish come true. A small can makes lots of snow, so there is snow for the tree, the presents and more.

Love this!

I buy some of this Instant Snow in a Can every year for stocking fillers. I love it! It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Santa Snow

Here at the Teifi Valley Railway we have relied on Instant Snow for years to give a great performance around Santa's Grotto. People get off the train to find they have arrived in a snowy landscape, no matter what the weather. The electric reindeer, Santa's doorstep and every twig are iced with snow. Recommended.

"It's true! Santa really does exist!"

A few years ago, my then 8 year old was having doubts as to whether or not Father Christmas really exists or not. I bought the largest container IWOOT had couldn't believe just HOW MUCH SNOW it made! I dumped a load of it in the fire place, thick trails of it leading towards the awaiting mince pies, milk (don't want Santa to drink and fly!) and carrots (for the reindeer of course) and then all the way up the stairs and into his room. We then got my old Moon Boots (remember those?!) out of the garage and left foot prints in all the snow. It was sooo worth it! We heard our little Casey shouting with glee "It's true! it's true! Father Christmas really DOES exist! there's snow everywhere!!!!" We live in Spain so this was really something! The snow is wet and white and fluffy, just like the real stuff! though its not crunchy enough to make proper snow balls. A few hours later, Casey asked "Why doesn't the snow melt mummy?" "Of course it doesn't melt! it's magic snow from the North Pole! you know the snow there NEVER MELTS! You've seen that on Discovery!" Lol. Definitely recommend this great realistic snow this crimbo!

Brilliant Christmas

I used Instant Snow to make Santa and Rudolph's footprints in our hall on Christmas Day. The expression on my 2 year old's face was fantastic. Everyone had to step over them and he wouldn't let us sweep them up. It truely was the highlight of his Christmas Day!!

"Does what it says on the tin"

Great product, easy, quick and easy to clean up. My 9 year old was convinced it was snow, what more can I say!

Best Snow Ever

Amazing how much snow comes out of one can! It's even cold. Ok so you can't build snowballs or snowmen out of it. But it's perfect for sprinkling on Christmas trees, tables and presents.
