I ordered this for a Christmas gift. I have written to Nittoro several times and have NOT heard from them. No response from them at all. Now I will have to go to my credit card and file a dispute! What a pain. I would BEWARE if I were you.
I love this… the multi color lights are amazing at night…. I usually end up watching this at least an hour a day!
I can't really tell you how beautiful it is cause as stated in a previous email
I never received it.
Please please refund my credit card asap
Thanking you in advance
Your company is a scam that should be reported to the BBB for fraud and false advertisement, anyone that orders from this POS company beware because your about to lose your hard earned money...
I would never buy from this company. I ordered 2 received 1 after Christmas. I email several times with no response. Buy from someone else don't waste your money.
Just ❤️ watching the way the sand sculptures into many different patterns.
Wish it was bigger
My wife loves it. Just makes her desk a bit more personalized and scenic.
It is relaxing to watch
I remember these from when I was a kid
I ordered this item as a gift and I ordered it in plenty of time. This company sent an e mail to me and said to contact them if I had any questions. When I e mailed this company, my e mail was returned. There was no way to contact them and the item didn't arrive until several WEEKS after the date of celebration so, it was wasted. I tried AGAIN to contact the company and once again my e mail was returned. To me, this company is NOT customer oriented. They give the appearance of being scammers. If you are going to take orders and provide merchandise to the public, then be about your customers. This company is NOT!!!
My wife really enjoys it thank you very much.
This is a gift for sister and so enjoys the movement of it. She loves the ocean and re love it in her home. Thank you
It took to long to deliver
Love it! So relaxing.
I enjoy watching this and find it relaxing.
Product is good, but the delivery time was terrible. Ordered it in August for a gift, and they received it in November.
Enjoyed my first order but still waiting to receive my second order.
I love the experience and the joy that this sand art brings me. I can watch this for minutes upon minutes and lose sense of time. Truly a meditative and breathtaking experience
I love it! I showed my bestie and she really thought it was cool but little does she know I got her one for Xmas.
I bought it for my grandson for Christmas so I haven’t opened it but I have to say it looks awesome and I know he is going to love it
Beautiful as nightlights or just to brighten up a room, very glad for the purchase!
I really enjoy it. I’m so glad I ordered
It came well-packaged and ready to display. The gradient of hue and separation is less than I would have preferred but it remains an appealing visual treat. It includes a syringe and needle without instruction but maybe to draw off air bubbles as they form over time.
After a bad experience with another sand art product, I tried this one and I'm glad I did. It's perfect! Manufactured well with the proper proportions of sand & water & air. And - bonus! - it comes with a syringe for adjustment if needed later along with photos showing proper and improper fills. I highly recommend this one.
Bought as a gift for my husband who has meeting calls all day. He loves it! It’s helped keep his stress level down and it looks good on his desk.
This is so relaxing to watch. I love how it makes different images each time you flip it over. My daughter and my mom want one now.
For the price it is good. No complaints. The bad reviews on it are because they seem to not understand how to adjust a Sand Painting. The Sand Painting comes with a syringe and a very sharp needle (like a diabetic needle gauge). This is to add or subtract air and water. All high-end Sand Paintings come with this as well. The more expensive ones explain why and how to use the syringe needle.
After having open heart surgery I found a blog where someone suggested sand art during recovery ❤️. When pain pills are wearing thin and the pain is still there use the sand art to relax. It worked. We know have 4 in the house. When things get f-Ed a quick 180 and tranquillity begins.
After adding little bit of air into it, my sand painting works perfectly. There is a great video on youtube that shows you how much air it should have to work properly.
The designs that are created are beautiful to look at and mesmerizing to watch. There are a few bubbles in the water, but they make the sand do interesting things. Great purchase at a great price
I bought these as a gift for my management staff and they all loved them. They send me pictures every day of the cool designs the sand makes for them.
I love it.
There are few things you will most likely need to do before it will look like on pictures. It’s all about the balance of water, sand and air. And for that to work, you will need a syringe and push air in or out and possibly some water from one of the tiny two holes provided for that purpose. Otherwise it will look like a big blab of a mess coming down right away or not coming down at all.
I have this on my desk for work. It’s calming to look at it while struggling with excel spreadsheets or just give the brain a breather.
I bought this along with LED lights for my room over the summer an I’ve got to say it’s really cool! A conversation starter for sure . I probably have the coolest room out of all of my close friends now haha. Thanks fam
This is the best Therascape I've ever seen! There's many on the market but ive got to say this brand towers over the rest. Really good quality and very transparent images!
It is well known that moving sand art is one of the most relaxing and entertaining things to watch. The slow and graceful movement of the sand castles is meditative.
There are infinite patterns to produce. Can challenge the artistic talents of anyone. Would recommend for any art enthusiast or if you just want something awesome to look at from time to time!
Back in the day they used to be square and were just plain mesmerizing. Now, they are round and come with multiple different angles you can flip it in. You can also make it into a lamp if you wanted to give it as a gift or just to have at home. These would be very beneficial to people interested in science, physics, and art.
I received this item as a gift and I could not be more happy with it. I have never seen something like this. Everyone that walks into my house notices it within the first 5 minutes. It has entertained children, teenagers and adults all equally. Mine even came with a syringe to help adjust the airflow!
This modern take on classical elements will allow you to experience emotions that are immeasurable. Definitely a nostalgic feeling.
looks great wife loves it
The coolest gadgets come from the most creative minds. Thank you for this creation.
This is a really cool piece for a desk, I got the 7 inch one and I like the size of, it's very soothing to watch the sand fall and sparkle. I like how the frame matches nicely with my computer monitor and it's just fight to set on a little shelf like I have it shown in these pics , it makes a nice background for the small shelf , instead of just a picture. This would be a nice gift and the stand it sits in is very sturdy.
This is a really unique sand art toy. It's filled up with abstract sand! Just spin it around and watch the sand flow down ! Very mesmerizing! I love this thing in my office :)
It is exciting I had no idea sand can do that, I'm going to buy a couple more of these as gifts this upcoming holiday season. Yes it's mesmerizing, a really fun way to spend time, watching the shapes create itself is something out of a movie.
The sand flow time actually depends how the bubbles land in the mid zone, this makes it very interesting to observe, different every time. The flowing sand creates striking patterns and designs in a range of sizes and shapes. There are so many things to watch that you can endlessly fascinate yourself with them.
At first i wasnt sure about this thought maybe i would get it broken but this is one of the coolest thing i have gotten from online. I can watch it for hours and hours or just use it to meditate.
If you like to watch a world in motion as it goes by, then you are going to adore these sand art pieces. This is a very interesting sand art piece, even for those who are not typically into this sort of thing. In fact, even kids who love watching their toys and other stuff move around will enjoy and have fun with these amazing magnetic pieces.
When you are buying a present for someone. You want it to be personal. This was the perfect gift to do just that. The gift of memory
I bought the 12 inch version of this. I wouldn’t get a smaller sand art piece because it would be too difficult to make consistent nice designs. That being said, this 12 inch version was an incredible value.
I don't remember where I found this website. All I remember is seeing a link to it in some other comment, and thinking "that looks like fun". I clicked the link. The page loaded up that you see right now. And then time sort of stopped. This sand art is a frame by frame animation. Each picture is a few seconds long, and includes about thousand tiny images. The tiny mountain ranges were absolutely hypnotizing. For about two hours, I was just staring at the same picture and waiting for them to move ever so slightly, just like how i would spend hours looking at the video of a bouncing red ball on youtube . It's crazy how something so hypnotizing can be made so simply with some moving sand and frames from an old video camera.
Sand art is very calming exercise, making it much more than just a thing you do when you're bored. It's a great way to clear your head and relax completely.
I found moving sand art on a weekend trip to Thailand and have become mesmerized by the exquisite design used by this artist. I love the fact that it is handcrafted and truly a unique work of art. This is something you call a priceless gift for someone who would appreciate it's natural elements.
This is one of my fascinations. One day I saw a video on Youtube by some artist named David Wilson. He was making these mesmerizing images with thousands of tiny sand specs. Years later, I'm still watching the videos, like the man's got me under a spell and now I own one of these too.
I remember having one of these when I was a kid. I probably got bored after a few minutes of watching it, but that doesn't mean my kids will! This thing moves, round and around. Each time is different as the bubbles land in different places. A good way to keep your kid mentally involved for hours.
I will say it was wrapped in a lot of foam and arrived in tact. It doesn’t quite work like I wanted. The sand often falls super quick but I read that can be solved by removing or adding bubbles. That’s not my jam. I want something to work as designed right from jump street. We did align the super duper small holes on the sides and got the mountainscape twice (out of a billion tries ). With that said, it’s still pretty cool and my grandson absolutely freakin loves this thing. He sat and turned it for almost an hour and wants to play with it all the time.
So looks like I will be buying more and can’t wait to start a collection of awesome colors.
I was a little worried about this when I purchased it, seeing how I don't have a syringe handy to add more air, and reading some negative reviews. My first few attempts at flipping the sandscape were underwhelming. After reading the instructions online and getting a little more familiar with it, the results we're great. Just be patient and get used to it, and you will have bunch of relaxation with this. Highly recommend.
Sometimes you just need to flip the sandglass and watch the sand fall to escape the reality of working in an office cubicle. It's relaxing to see the sand falling while you're working and a fun conversation piece too. It's glass but because it's round it's easier to handle for smaller hands. Still, I wouldn't let a kid run off with it as it will break if dropped.
I used to have this as a kid, it was so mesmerizing, and it still is. This is really cool. The sand flow time actually depends how the bubbles land in the mid zone, this makes it very interesting to observe, different every time. These use to be square back in the day but now since it's round, you can flip them in multiple different angles. This is a really great gift for anyone including for yourself!
Nice addition to my desk. Part toy, part relaxation, part art... it’s the best of all of these. Feels sturdy and looks classy.
My husband and I are enjoying this. We make new sand-scapes everyday. I was prepared to add more air or water with a syringe if needed but mine was perfect just how it came. The base is very light yet is still sturdy enough to keep it standing strong. But I think it was worth getting this one, and in the bigger size. We really like it.
I've wasted so much of my time staring at this thing. It will hypnotize you. Note: you gotta shake it up till the bubbles are tiny, and then give it time for all the sand to settle before flipping it over. That's how you get a nice slow trickle and beautiful mountain ranges.
Very meditative and beautiful gift! Works perfectly with background color light! I find myself frequently rotating mines so that i have live imagery in the background
This is one of the best and cheapest art decor i own. My best friend recommended this to me and I ended off buying one for myself and another for a close friends birthday; its awesome! If you get it right the flow of sand can take more than a day to form and the images you can create are awesome, its quite therapeutic too, ive got into the habit of starting it before work and seeing how good or bad it is when I get home. I dont think you can go wrong with any color, seriously if you like interesting art or gadgets get this
It looks great and helps relax in a busy day. I recommend getting this for your workspace. The sand is subject to the laws of physics regarding air. Too much air and the sand gets 'trapped' and often cannot fall at all. Too little air and the sand free-falls. Get a needle and syringe and add/remove air until you get the balance you desire.

Very beautiful. I also own the more expensive versions of this. You will probably need to get used to it - it does have more air than expected, but you can still work with it and develop some beautiful effects and patterns.
Absolutely love it! It’s exactly what I was looking for. Those that say it doesn’t work are just not lining up the bubbles properly. I really enjoy this in my home office.
This is a very well-made, beautiful piece. I find it very relaxing to watch the sand fall into beautiful landscape-like scenes. These "scenes" are not quite as varied as those of the rectangular one that I previously had as a child -- most of the time this one results in a nearly level horizon -- but still beautiful.
Eye pleasing and captivating. It's hit or miss getting started but just flip and start again. It looks so good there are times I will not flip it for a while.
Family is mesmerized. We have it sitting on our high bar and I think everyone in the family flips it during the course of a day. Love the gold flecks, round shape, and option to do quarter turns. Very happy family!
It’s a cool conversation piece for sure. It’s also really calming to watch and the end result is fascinating because it’s never the same thing.I realized the air bubbles guide the sand and keep it afloat. Very cool.
I received this as a gift after having it on my wishlist for a very long time. Sand art like this are something I had as a child and was curious to try again. I absolutely love this one
Very cute and fun to watch, it’s super easy to change the level in it all you need is a syringe or a bike needle which everyone has. It’s so peaceful and fun
So in love with this that I just bought a second one. Very relaxing. I have it by my desk and it completely grounds me to watch the sandscape emerge.
It's unique and different. I wasn't expecting the patterns to be so well formulated and vivid. It's an actual work of art in this tiny little glass frame. I cannot complain about this purchase !
The sand painting works great, my son and I have spent a lot of time flipping it over to see what new patterns it will make. I got the blue one, and the colors are pretty. There is a fair amount of copper glitter in the mix. I didn’t have any difficulty getting the sand to flow, but the rate is different every time. I usually have a more successful flow rate than my son and I think it’s because I flip it faster and more evenly.
I actually bought 3 for family members and they all performed differently. I read reviews before buying, so was aware that these all have a different falling pattern to them. They all look really cool on desks, I just wish that I knew how to adjust the air bubbles myself.
Although it took eons to receive this, my husband and I love it. I am an artist and am having a delightful time moving it in increments to the right or left to reveal new vistas. Well worth the money and is very calming as it forces us to stop, breathe and wait for the sand to form new "pictures". Thanks for allowing me to give my testimony!
Works well - the kids love it
Bought this piece as a reminder to myself to stay calm and relaxed. Great addition to the home, was suprised at how vibrant and glittery the sand was.
Follow instructions and you are going to love it. Read them trust me, it is totally worh it.
The pictures dont do this thing justice , It looks so much better out of the box than it did on the website. Happy with purchase :)
Delivery was meh, but sandscape is cool nonetheless. No complaints here.
Works suprisingly well. Seen some great portraits from the sandscape so far. Good addition to the desk.
Gorgeous!! We love this so much!! It's super calming and makes different scenes everytime. Grandkids love to watch it!
Perfect surprise gift for my hardworking fiancé! It's something he'd never think to get, or buy himself, but he loves it!! Great conversation starter for his office at work.
I was hesitant to spend the money on something that was just a decorative object for my desk, but it has exceeded my expectations. It works perfectly and is really beautiful. I did adjust the amount of air a little, but the instructions for doing so were easy to follow. I could watch this all day - the sand landscapes it makes are stunning!
I love it! A little scary spending this much on sand art.... worth it. Didn’t need to adjust the air upon arrival because they sand falls perfectly. Strangely mesmerizing watching the sand fall through the bubbles. If this product last a few years it is well worth it. Update: I still love this thing! Still flip it almost everyday. You have to adjust the air/water ratio every few Months. Great quality!!!
I received this as a gift after having it on my wishlist for a very long time. Sand art like this are something I had as a child and was curious to try again. I absolutely love this one
No regrets buying this. Calibrating it was a game of adding and removing air until I think I got it right. The only reason I don’t give this 5 stars is because it’s challenging flipping it over and getting all the bubbles spread out evenly across. This is due to the round shape. I have a rectangle one and flipping it is much easier and you get much more consistent beautiful landscapes. I posted pictures of two of the nicer attempts with this round one.
Awesome. I must note the packaging was superb. Absolutely gallery-quality art and packaging. Bravo. Stunning piece that people really enjoy. I bought this one for my Dad and to go on my folks’ coffee table, which is patina bear on its back (a lot less horrible than it sounds, it’s actually quite nice itself as it’s not mass produced but artist made) with a beveled glass top. The round sandscape echoes the mountains of our world here in Alaska and it’s absolutely perfect together- I need to add a photo after I clean up after Christmas morning!
Since this item arrived, I have spent minimum 10 hours in past 72 hours just watching the sand and relaxing. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS- I think it's great that the Creator has you understand the science behind it and add the air yourself. I added extra air in mine which creates a slower falling effect but can produce some incredible designs. As you can see from my photos, even Bob Ross would approve :-p lol
So happy with purchase. Sometimes I catch myself daydreaming while staring at the falling sand. Definety a great addition to the room, it helps me clear my thoughts lol.
Was skeptical in buying this at first but now I don't have any regrets. Company is professional, high quality, and this thing is truly a mesmorizing piece of work. Thank you David Wilson "sand master"
Purchased as a gift for my parents new home. They think it is very cool. It has very nice colors and is an enjoyable and unique art item for the home decor. Would recommend.
bought this for my wife for her birthday, we both had something similar when we were kids. She absolutely loves it and so doesn't my mom hahaha. I don't normally write reviews but this was worth it. Thanks again!
Mr. Stuffles in the background haha, anyways i love it, it's so calming to watch. Glad i came across the advertisment when i did got a steal!!
This was a birthday gift to my art oriented 15 year old daughter, and is fascinating to watch. We did have to adjust the air amount a little with the included syringe, but was easy to do. Met my expectations, and makes a very unique gift.
Good quality. It's great. exactly like the pictures. Just have to master bubble placement so the sand falls slowly. There is an art to it ;)
