This sandbox worked out great for my 17 month old granddaughter. It's big enough for 1-3 small children to play in and seems very sturdy. The seats are a good size and the cover fits well. I ordered it online and it arrived quickly and fit in the back of our Focus wagon with room to spare. 150 pounds of sand filled it adequately. I am very pleased with it and so is my granddaughter!
I purchased this sandbox because of the size - more room for my boys to play than others - and the good reviews I saw online. Unfortunately, I have been 100% disappointed with this product. 1) The "sun" design in the top of the box has grooves that are about 1/2 inch deep. They constantly collect water when it rains, leaving standing water - creating a perfect condition for mosquitoes to breed all summer long. Unless I lift the lid and pour out the water every day, there is - literally - mosquito larvae in it. In addition to being a nuicance, this is a health concern (west nile)!!! 2) The four corners are designed for a child to sit on and play. When I rested on the corner to help my child (I weigh 120 lbs.), the corner collapsed. While I understand it's not designed for adults to sit on, be careful, or your sandbox will quickly get ruined. 3) After only a few weeks of owning the item, the lid has become warped and does not seem to fit securly on the sandbox anymore. 4) When I called Step 2 to express my disatisfaction with their product they stated there was nothing they could do, and told me they would SELL me a box if I wanted to try to return it to the store from which it came. The majority of these issues are design issues. I wish I had purchased the "crabbie" sandbox instead. I am now out $$$ for the "naturally playful" sandbox and left with a *very* bad impression of Step 2 based on my customer service experience.
Great, big sand box.
Great size and product for the price
Bought this about 2 years ago still holding up as a sand box. Gone through two summers of sun and rain. We bring it in over the winter.
