Great sandbox! Highly recommend it.We bought this used at a garage sale, but there was no wear at all when I purchased it, and over a year later, it still looks brand new. I like that it's not overly bright and obnoxious-looking, but most of all, it's very functional. The corners all work as chairs, and I can sit on the corner comfortably with my feet in or out of the sand while my daughter plays. The top is sturdy enough to hold my child's weight, and it's only blown off once in a very, very bad storm (but we've had many bad storms and the top has stayed on without issue). The top keeps bugs and water out very well. This box is large enough to accommodate 3-4 children at once.

This looks great (and works great, too)!We just replaced our Crabbie sandbox after 4 years; although it was still perfectly functional, the color was very faded...and my kids are getting older. I bought the naturally playful sandbox this morning and it looks so great in the yard! My 6-year-old and 3-year old love it as much as they did old Crabbie, and the baby will love it someday. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that I wish it was larger--the kids are getting older and bigger, wish the sandbox would get bigger, too (only reason I didn't give it 5 stars). Oh, well--they love the sandbox, and if they're happy, I'm happy!

VERY NICE!I looked all over at a variety of sandboxes to give my 2 yr old for her birthday. Most are obnoxious shapes and bright awful colors and are not at all big enough for more than one child, but this sandbox is the complete opposite. It looks wonderful in our backyard and blends right in. My daughter LOVES IT. It holds a considerable amount of sand and sand toys which I leave in it. Its quite sturdy once together. I can't say enough about it. If you can get one on sale, or even if you can't it's way nicer and larger than anything I have seen elsewhere in the same cost bracket! BUY IT!

Loads of fun - and looks greatWe LOVE this sandbox. It blends in well - and I love that it matches our sand and water table. I think the neutral colour will hide any fading much better than the brightly coloured ones that seem to fade so quickly. It's a pretty good size, though it seemed much bigger in the store! I love the little corner seats. It has been a big hit for us - my four year old plays with it all the time. If only I could figure out how to keep the sand off my floors! The only complaint I have is that the lid design holds water in the design, and it drips into the sandbox when the lid comes off.

Perfect for Preschoolers!My three year old son and 18 month old daughter can't get enough of this sandbox! We've had it a year now, and have no complaints about the lid leaking or not staying on. In fact, it's light enough that my 3 year can manage to get the lid on and off himself (which means they can go out to our little fenced in backyard by themselves while I am watching from the kitchen window cooking dinner). Initially I was going to get a sand table because I thought it'd be less mess, but they did not seem big enough for 2 kids and I didn't like that sand would inevitably fall out underneath it. I am really, really glad I went with this sandbox instead. My kids play in it every day that weather permits, and have so much fun with it!

We love this thingGreat sandbox. We have had this for more than a year now. Still gets plenty of use. Roof does stay on during high winds. How? I do not know. Only minor issue may be the roof. Kids stand on the roof all the time, causes it to buckle in. The roof pretty much stays in the 'buckled in' state all the time. It is a non-issue for us. Wish the corners were a little larger, as that is where I usually sit (180 lbs). It works, but gets a little uncomfortable after a while. We purchases four of these. Gave three away as gifts. For the money it was well worth it. Overall, no real complaints. We love this sandbox!

Great sandbox, terrible lidThis is a great sandbox, very large and roomy for my two children. However, since we bought it, the lid has always blown right off. It also is very flimsy, and does not stay in place. After about a month it started getting holes in it, and now the box is filled with cat poop from the local neighborhood cats and lots of bugs and worms as well as debris from surrounding trees. I love this box, but wish the lid would stay on and be sturdy enough to keep animals out. I tried to buy just a lid from Step 2 but was told they can't do that. I have numerous step 2 products, (just bought the fold up picnic table) and they are all great, this is my only disappointment. Come on step 2, live up to your excellence and make a better lid or at least let us buy a replacement so we don't have to buy a whole new sandbox from an unnamed retailer who is not as good as you but who has sturdy lids.

Still a winner after 2 years!I bought this sandbox 2 years ago and am still impressed with its superiority! The lid stays on tight and keeps out all snow, rain, bugs, and anything else that might come along spring, summer, fall, or winter! It is big enough to accomodate lots of toys and still have room for several little hands and feet to squish in the sand. My son was a micro-preemie and had some sensitivity issues. A sand box was just what he needed to help overcome these issues. After 2 years, the sensitivity issues have been overcome, but he still loves to play in the sand. And the best part is, it still looks great in the yard! The neutral colors go well with any decor and they don't fade, even in direct sunlight! This is the best sandbox I have been able to find. It is truly an asset to the Step 2 line!
