    I bought this for my daycare. [...] the kids are still having a blast i put some moon sand in so they can mold and they love it! i have not used the water feature yet as it is just starting to warm up enough for wet kids outside! i do wish the umbrella could stay in when i put the lid on though, thats a bit annoying, but not a huge deal either.

    I love the idea of this table but I was sad to discover that after spending $[...] the water leaked out from the leg holes very quickly! I read another review that said they ended up putting caulk around the leg holes so we might try that.

    3 Design Problems

    By

    About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Parents Of 3 Yr Old

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Umbrella Is Good Size

    Cons

    • Hard To Empty
    • Leaks
    • Lid Is Useless
    • No Hole In Lid Cna
    • Poor Design

    Best Uses

      Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Sand & Water Activity Center:

      1. One of the purposes of the lid is s you don't have to empty the table every time. However, because the umbrella sticks all the way up, you can't put the lid on UNLESS YOU DUMP EVERYTHING OUT and take off the umbrella. So what is the point of the lid? Useless....
      2. The table is two sided, and only one side can hold water. We didn't want to put sand in it because it is being used on a patio (we live in a city) so when you put water in both sides, it leaks straight the leg hole covers and empties in less than 5 minutes.
      3. When we called to explain the problems, we were ON HOLD FOR MORE THAN 25 MINUTES and gave up.

      We are very disappointed with STEP 2 right now.

        Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Sand & Water Activity Center:

        We LOVE this sand/water table! We live at the beach so our daughter loves to collect "real sand" and seashells to add to her table! It was very easy to setup and the directions were super easy to read. The only issue we had was it took some elbow grease to screw in the leg screws however, you don't want those falling off or coming loose so we knew that it would be very tight and sturdy since we had to work a little harder to get them in. The colors are great, green and tan.. they actually match our porch chairs. I also loved the fact that it came with the umbrella AND a few sand toys! Sun protection is very important to us and even though we have it on our covered porch there are still a lot of sun rays that get in. My daughter doesn't complain that the sun is in her eyes ever. The table is set up for one side sand and the other side for water with little bridges and a mote for boats. We have used it that way and we have also used it with sand on both sides..We have also put beans and other sensory items in the compartments to get her imagination going! On the water side there is one little drain that seals very well but at times the water does leak out a tiny bit from the legs. So far this has not been an issue. Sophia absolutely loves it and so do her parents! Highly recommend!

          This would be a great table if it actually held the water. I cannot figure out why the designer would put 4 unnecessary holes in a table that is SUPPOSED to hold water.

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Sand & Water Activity Center:

          After years of condo living, I promised myself that when we moved into a place with a backyard, I would buy my baby girl an outdoor water activity table. By the time we moved into a house with a backyard, my daughter was already a 3-and-a-half year-old preschooler! That meant that she was already too old/tall for most of the water/sand activity tables on the market, which are geared toward toddlers and 2 year-olds. Enter this Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Activity Center, which is designed for kids from 2-6. It is perfect for our needs, and most importantly, my daughter loves it. The first time she played with it, she spent almost all day outside, totally engaged in playing with her water toys and building sand castles in her new water/sand activity table.

          The only downside of this activity table is that it leaks. The gasket on one of the table legs doesn't fit into the water bin properly, which caused a small but steady stream of water to run down that leg until the water section of the table had lost about half of the water I put in it that morning. Not only is this a total waste of water, but it's also just downright irritating. And on top of that, because you have to secure the table legs with screws after installing them into the water/sand bin, it's impossible to easily adjust the legs & gaskets after installation to make them fit more tightly into the holes in the bin. This is a major design flaw by Step2 in an otherwise great product.

          Grade: B+

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Sand & Water Activity Center:

          This sand and water play center was purchased for my 2 year old grandchild. He really enjoys it and his 8 year old brother plays well with him when using this toy. It does get a bit messy but that's part of what they like about it and it is easy to clean up. I can put uncooked rice it the sand side if I don't like the mess. Two drain holes would have made it easier to clean. I don't like that the legs fit into holes that go though the surface where the sand and water are.
