        Comments about Step2 Crabbie Sandbox™:

        Got this for my son's 1st birthday and 2 years later it still looks brand-new even after the harsh Wisconsin winters. I love that the top stays put no matter how windy it gets but yet it's light enough my son can take it off and put it back on by himself. I'm sure this will be a fixture in our backyard for years to come.

          My soon-to-be 12 year old received this for her first birthday. It has been dearly loved for many years by both my daughter and my son. However, they've lost interest in playing in a sand box...much to my dismay! We are thrilled to be able to hand down "Crabbie" to my two year old nephew...and despite some fading of the lid, the sand box is STILL in durable shape! I would recommend this to everyone...enjoy! :-)

            This is a good sand box...We had bought the turtle sand box which is only a couple dollars less and both boys couldnt fit in it and play at the same time... The second day we had it we had a awful storm and the winds were outrages and the lid stayed on... Which surprised me... We also have a lot of cats in the neighbor hood and I was afraid of it becoming a litter box but they cant get the lid off of it...

              Comments about Step2 Crabbie Sandbox™:

              My son received this crab sandbox for his first birthday and we have used it almost non-stop. He is 20 months old, and still adores his sandbox.

              It is very easy to clean, it is covered so it will protect the sand from being contaminated with neighborhood cats using it for their potty. We have filled it with water and used it as a kiddie pool and we have filled it with sand and used it as a sandbox. It could also be filled with those plastic balls and be used indoors, if needed. I love Step 2 products, because they are so sturdy and the plastic is such high quality! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT!!!
