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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from So adorable I’m always a little put off by public sandboxes, not knowing what is in there so I love that this small sandbox can be placed in my backyard with ease. I love the little crab and the fact that it comes with a cover to protect from rain and just generally when not in use. Plus I can clean it whenever I need and refill the sand. Also this is the perfect size for my toddler to play in and when he’s older I can repurpose it to hold outdoor toys and such.

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.

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.

Can I paint mr crabby? We love it ,but it is faded out

Asked by: susie
I spray painted 2 of them. 1 Red and 1 blue. I'd stick with Red in the future as it came out looking almost new. The blue was so so. I used Rustoleum Painters Edge 2x I think it's called and the color was Apple Red I think.

how tight is the lid? will it keep the sandbox free of bugs?

Asked by: Lore
Its not that tight. There are 2 openings which are intended to make removing the cover easier (like handles) but bugs could get in. I've had it for a couple of months and havent had a problem with bugs though. Mixing in cinnamon with the sand is supposed to help as well.
