    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.

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

      My son received this as a Christmas gift and therefore I did not read these reviews before purchasing. I highly recommend reading reviews as I am not sure why this table is rated so highly.
      1.) There are numerous complaints that the water will leak out of the legs even if the rubber grommets are used properly on the legs. I wish I would have taken a picture of my garage floor that was soaked when I went to leave for work this morning.
      2.) The lid CANNOT be used if the directions are followed on assembling the umbrella, unless you crawl under it to remove the screw that holds the umbrella in place or empty everything out to turn it over. Completely useless!
      3.) The bridges are completely useless as well as they aren't anchored to the table. The slightest bump or touch and the bridges fall off. They are a hassle, I thought they clipped to the table.

      Final thought: I would NOT recommend this to someone. I thought when products were designed they went through a test procedure. This product was clearly not tested or tested properly due to the obvious failures. I was considering buying a kitchen for my son made by Step 2, but I am seriously second guessing that decision.

      Bought this one and the Sandy Shores Sand & Water Table aka Cascading Cove. Kept the Cascading Cove and returned this one. Water leaked around legs. Not okay for indoor play with the leaking.

      3 Design Problems

      By 

      from Philadelphia

      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!
