  • The first ever oat-based play products

    So, why oats? 
  • educator-backed & mom-approved

    Did you know most play products are filled with toxic ingredients? Catherine Landis, an educator, mom to 3 children, and founder of Oat What Fun, discovered how toxic play products are when her family switched to an all natural living lifestyle for their son. 

During the process of changing their lifestyle, Catherine was shocked to discover nasty ingredients and health hazards of other play products. She went on a mission to advocate for all children and develop natural play products. Oat What Fun was created! We hope you join our mission and dig into natural, safer play with Oat What Fun!

  • no funky smell or artificial anything

    Our products are 100% natural and safe. There are no funky smells, no artificial dyes, no artificial fragrances, and are made with ingredients you recognize and trust. Our products are also naturally gluten-free.

  • better for you & our planet

    Our products are compostable. When you are finished playing with Oat What Fun Sand, you can toss it in a compost bin. Don't compost? Our sand will naturally biodegrade within weeks compared to other play sands that never fully decompose. All of this makes Oat What Fun a better choice for our environment!

We believe that less is more when it comes to sparking imagination in children.

Our oat-based products are created with children’s development and safety in mind. Children will play, imagine, dig, scoop, build, and thrive. You will have peace of mind knowing that Oat What Fun products are all natural & safe.

Hands-on play is essential for development as it encourages speech development, develops fine motor skills, stimulates cognitive growth, has a calming effect and inspires social interaction.
