After a day on the beach in the hot sand, my feet feel smooth and relaxed. I want to duplicate that in a home sand box, with a heating element. Would be a closable box, so Felix the cat can't make free...

Use of this product inconsistant with the directions invalidates warranty.

       and the noise of waves

       and the sand flies

       and the oil.

       and the dead seabirds.

       and the broken beer bottles, festering chips, chewed up plastic and fecal matter (British beaches)

       beech?

       I'm so sorry guys, I was under the impression the UK beaches were pristine. ala flickr photos
dentworth, Jun 07 2010
  

       British beaches are rancid... see link.

       And a spray nozzle and large fan to give the illusion of rain and gales.

       then it sounds to me like you folks need this product more than anyone.
dentworth, Jun 07 2010
  

       Is there a bully-boy version where a little boot comes out and kicks sand in your face?
xenzag, Jun 07 2010
  

       And a seagull tethered to the box, waiting for you to toss it some of your soft pretzel?

       thanks [21Q]

       Let me get my rake. (+)   

       Surely all you need is a box full of brown petroleum sludge?
Ian Tindale, Jun 08 2010
  

       oh I know where you can get that!
dentworth, Jun 08 2010
  

       Ah yes - the Niger Delta. Far more oil gets into the sea there every year than has been released in the Gulf of Mexico this year. They have less effective PR though...

       Not all British beaches are yucky - there are a plenty of places that take a real pride in having a pleasant, clean and healthy coastline - Yes there are problems in some places, but to characterise everywhere as being like that is to make a pretty sweeping generalisation.

       The British Beach-in-a-Box will need to be covered in wood slick timber.

       “Nobody in the UK uses vacuum cleaners.”
“That’s a sweeping generalisation, isn’t it?”
Ian Tindale, Jun 09 2010
  

       who said that? I've read this twice, and I can't find anything about vac. cleaners, nor Hoovers for that matter.
dentworth, Jun 10 2010
  

       I think it's in response to my sweeping generalisation comment - how would people in the UK clean their floors if they didn't use a vacuum cleaner? (assuming - or generalising that is - that they all have hard floors, and not carpets)
