    Love this item for children first learning to climb. I have twins, one walking and the other crawling. They were premies and my little one is still learning her balance. My boy has mastered it all. They both love playing on this structure. I have it on our balcony so it is the perfect size (our balcony is enclosed and safe for this). We turned the sandbox into a ball pit and they are laughing out there all the time! It was a gift to them from my mother in law. We are so happy she got this for them!! I recommend this to anyone. It is also a reasonable price and super cute too. I have all sorts of ideas for the boat sandbox that do not include sand. We will use it for a ballpit, beans, toy box and more. Great piece!

    We've had this product for about 5 months, but my daughter only played in the sandbox three times. Every time it rains, the sandbox gets filled with water, even though the top is closed and I put a plastic tarp over it. By the time the water evaporates, it rains again and we are back to square one.

      Comments about Step2 Dockside Sandbox & Climber:

      We bought this for my 13 month old son and he loves it! It is perfect for him to climb and slide without being so tall that we worry about him hurting himself. He loves the sandbox. After reading another review we did drill drain holes in the bottom of the sandbox to help with rain water since the lid is not water tight. I would recommend this product. It also shipped very quickly.

        First platform did not fit the slide but the customer service was outstanding. One rep helped me the whole way through in ordering a new platform. the second platform assembled perfectly.

        Poor plastic molding

              Comments about Step2 Dockside Sandbox & Climber:

              The directions are simple as is the assembly. But the molding on the deck piece where the slide fits in is smaller than the width of the slide. Therefore assembly can not be completed and no further comments can be made. Except that we live out in the country and the huge inconvenience and time wasted is disappointing. We would expect that childrens toys would have a tighter quality control inspection.

                My daughter loves this toy! It was easy to put together too. The slide is short so this is really best for small children 3 and under probably, but the sandbox is great for slightly older ages. Definitely recommend this product.

                Tina S: It was definitely not too steep. My niece is on the tall side, so by the time she was 2, she was practically as tall as the slide itself. It's also not very slippery or fast, so she didn't have a problem. The only thing we needed to remind her about was sitting to go down rather than trying to walk down it or step off it. Jul 8, 2014

                Melissa R: It is a pretty small space. Definitely too small for an adult and child to sit next to each other. I probably would not even try to put two small children in it at the same time. They will practically be sitting on top of each other. Jul 14, 2014
