Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Versatile Product! 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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute and so much fun! We purchased this sandbox for our 2 year old daughter. We picked this particular one because it has built-in seats (the crab's claws), and it's really cute! Our daughter enjoys playing in this sandbox. We are especially happy with this particular product because the lid stays on perfectly, even in high winds. Our neighbors weren't so lucky, as they purchased a different sandbox and their lid blows away every time the wind blows. This is a good sandbox. It even got hailed on once and shows no damage. (and the lid stayed on, too!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Sad to See Crabbie Go! 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! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KIDS LOVE IT!! 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Perfect I love this sandbox. It's very sturdy but I can still move it from place to place while I finish landscaping our backyard. Second, I've also been able to use this as a wading pool for him by dumping the sand onto a tarp until I'm ready to convert it back. I was initially concerned that the cover didn't snap into place and that I would open the sandbox to find it filled with debris, but I was pleasantly surprised every time I uncovered a clean sandbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used as a pool This sandbox is great, we've used it for so many other things than just a sandbox. We've used it for drinks and filled it with ice and we've also used it as a kiddie pool for the kids. Gives the kids a bunch of fun weather filled with water or sand.

How do I remove water from the sandbox? We had a thunderstorm come through and blow the top off, now the box is full of sand AND water.
Asked by: Jessica H.
If your product is accumulating water, you can drill a ¼ hole on bottom away from any seam line, tip it and this should drain out the water. If you have additional questions about this process please call toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you.
