If the one you had is the bag in the middle then it is the wrong sand.

I did a google image search on south down and came up with the image below. This is not the same bag that I had, but I suspect that it must be the same sand because the bag was very similar. On mine, the same cartoon boy in the same cartoon outfit was featured larger and in the center of the bag... the white box above was absent and the boy was holding both a shovel and pail. Hopefully one or the other is just an updated design.

I've noticed that the grain size is extremely small... kicks up lots of dust when disturbed (unrelated to my other post about keeping LR clean, however).
