My oldest three boys, ages 2 to 6, have all really enjoyed playing with the sandbox. The sandbox isn't too large to take up a ton of space in our backyard but still has lots of room for play. I like the built-in spots to sit so they don't have to sit directly on the sand if they don't want to. I really appreciate that a plastic lid is included to keep out bugs, rain, dirt, etc. Having a sandbox cover that is large also lets us keep all the sand toys right in the sandbox so they are ready for play and cleanup is a breeze!

Thank you to Step2 for letting me test drive this item as part of the Step2 Test Drive Blogger program.

Bought this for my grandkids. Looked at the dimensions of several on the market and, by those given, thought this would be small enough to keep up but large enough for at least 2 at a time to play but it isn't. I guess if they were 2 or 3 more might fit in but at 4 and 5 only one can play at a time. There just isn't enough room so it caused fights and I had to get rid of it.

        This was a gift for my 2 yr old. I wanted something he could sit in and play. Big enough for him and his brother to do so. I like that it has a cover, though I wish it were a little more durable. Afraid it could crack easily. Hasn't rained yet, so don't know if it will leak.So far so good. Only used about a week now.

          I could not be happier with this sandbox. It is just the right size for my 18 month old grandbaby. The seats in the corners are a nice touch. The lid is a nice feature to keep the sand clean. I suggest putting a sand bucket filled with a bit of sand on top of the lid just to make sure it does not blow away though. Very happy with this purchase!

            This was a gift for my one year old grandson and he loves it. His mom filled it with balls to begin with so he could play during the winter months and now that it is warmer it has now become a sand box. We are now purchasing a Step 2 pool with umbrella. Great toys for children.

            This sand box appears to have more room than the round ones, and I like the seats on each corner. It seems perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

            It has a cover so I think it will help keep the sand clean. I like the molded seats and the size of the box...doesn't seem too big or too small. It looks like it will be a great addition to our backyard play area.

            This was the perfect size for the space. I've bought Step 2 items in the past so I have no doubt in the quality or its ability to stand up to rough play.

            *blush* Well, actually, as an outdoor litter box for our three cats. It will be filled with clumping litter. The lid will keep the litter dry during the rainy season here in Los Angeles

            For my son for his 1st birthday. I liked this one out of all the ones I looked at, and after reading the reviews it only made my decision easier. All of our products are Step 2 when it comes to out door and bigger toys/ toy boxes for our son. The products are very reliable.

            William F on Jul 14, 2014
            I like that it's large enough to store toys and comes with a secure lid. It looks like a good size for our nearly 2-year-old daughter, and it seems like it will grow with her better than one of the sand tables.
            Michelle O on May 12, 2014

            Paula D on Apr 8, 2014
            I thought it would be a little bigger than the turtle sand box and the lid looked higher for good storage

            I purchased this sandbox for my grandson who will be 3 years old and can grow with it. Also we don't have a lot of storage space and this sandbox didn't look like it would take up a lot of room.
            Lynne S on May 22, 2013
            It is for my granddaughter for her birthday, it was cheaper to buy it from you and have it sent than it was to try and find it and it's exactly what she wanted.

            This is a birthday gift for our son. We wanted a durable sandbox with a lid that both of our boys could play in together. We also have many friends with children that visit often. This one is size and age appropriate for all the children that will be playing in it.
            Jamie C on May 3, 2013
            Good size, reasonably priced, includes cover. Wasn't looking for anything fancy and didn't want anything too big, but wanted enough space for two kids to play together.

            My Son really has wanted a sandbox for awhile and I chose this one because I think is will be the perfect size for the space we have, it closes to keep the critters out, and you can store things in it. It also had great reviews.

            How is this different than the Naturally Playful Sandbox, which is more the 2x the price but looks very similar?
            A shopper on Jun 13, 2013
            BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about that one, but the Naturally Playful Sandbox looks "fancier" with the brick look. We love the Play and Store Sandbox and have been using it so much!
            Are there tie downs for the lid so it wouldn't blow off, as in the Step 2 Naturally Playful Sandtable?
            A shopper on Jun 7, 2013
            BEST ANSWER: No, there are no tiedowns for the lid. It does fit into grooves, so it is not just loosely sitting on top. We have also had concerns about it blowing away, though so far it has not happened. We will probably use a couple of bungee cords over the top to secure it going forward.
            Does this product require assembly?
            A shopper on May 30, 2013
            BEST ANSWER: No assembly required. There are only 2 pieces, the sandbox and lid.
            Anyone know the outside dimensions? Looking for a sandbox that will fit under the fort section of a wooden playset/ swingset.
            A shopper on Jul 15, 2013
            BEST ANSWER: The length is 32” and the depth width (if facing the sandbox) is 26”
            WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE OUT OF, NOTHING ANYWHERE EXPLAINING THIS?
            Iris B on May 10, 2013
            BEST ANSWER: This sandbox is made out of Linear Low Density Polyethylene. It is made in the USA.
