Did you ever make sand castles using little plastic molds on the beach when you were a kid? Remember wishing you could make the castle bigger? Have you ever wished you lived in a castle? Now you can have a life sized sand castle... and live in it!!!

Metal prefabricated castle sized sand castle molds are placed face down on the sand at the designated location (for a price). The mold is then pumped full of a sand/clay/silt/water mixture via holes at the top.

Then the mold is heated to one thousand degrees Fahrenheit for sixty minutes; hardening the mixture. The mold is removed and designers come in and carefully carve out an illustrious interior.

Walla!!! Your very own sand castle!!!

Note: Insurance not included. You’ll probably have to have your castle rebuilt periodically. Mote sold separately.
