SnoWonder, which I mentioned yesterday, is a powdered plastic polymer that turns to snow instantly when a small amount of water is added to it. I got the opportunity to try it first hand yesterday, only hours after my first mention, and am pleased to say that it is all that it promised to be.
The snow looks and feels very real and is slightly cold, since it maintains the temperature of the water that makes up 99% of the product. The only things that mark it as less- than-natural are the facts that it will not melt and isn't sticky in the least, so packing it down could be a challenge. For home use, however, these are not drawbacks. The "snow" will not ruin floors, carpeting or other surfaces because it retains water and it can easily be brushed off anything that you don't want to see it on. You can even vacuum it up, if necessary, although the water will evaporate (unless it is refreshed, of course) in about two weeks, leaving behind the original plastic powder that can be reused again and again.
It's probably too late to order this online in time for Christmas, but I found my "snow" at a local mall, so keep your eyes out while doing last minute holiday shopping. It adds a great look to any Christmas display!
