    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this sandbox! I am the director of a Daycare/Preschool and we have this sandbox on our Infant and Toddler playground. The children love it! Unfortunately, someone jumped our fence and jumped our fence and landed on the lid and it cracked in several places. We are looking to replace the lid because the sandbox is used daily and loved by all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a winner after 2 years! I bought this sandbox 2 years ago and am still impressed with its superiority! The lid stays on tight and keeps out all snow, rain, bugs, and anything else that might come along spring, summer, fall, or winter! It is big enough to accomodate lots of toys and still have room for several little hands and feet to squish in the sand. My son was a micro-preemie and had some sensitivity issues. A sand box was just what he needed to help overcome these issues. After 2 years, the sensitivity issues have been overcome, but he still loves to play in the sand. And the best part is, it still looks great in the yard! The neutral colors go well with any decor and they don't fade, even in direct sunlight! This is the best sandbox I have been able to find. It is truly an asset to the Step 2 line!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fills up with water even when lid is on I bought this sand box for my daughter's 1st b-day last summer. I was very excited about having something for her to play with in our yard. It looks nice and has the corner seats and cover is why I choose this sand box. But the first time it rained it filled with water, and then the water and heat made green slime grow in it. You can not let your child play in that mess. So I had to pour bleach in it to kill all the algie or mold.It stayed full of water all winter and free of the algie or mold but I can't let my daughter play in it now because the sand is wet and still has bleach in it. Even if the water evaporated the sand might bleach my daughter's clothes. I am trying to contact the Step 2 company to get a new cover or find a way to resolve this problem.My hope is they have improved the lid and will send me one that won't leak or replace the sand box completely with another model that won't collect water or refund my money. This is not a cheep product when you spend this much for a sand box you expect to have it for years of use not a week and then when it rains and you have a big sand pool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sandbox My kids love this sandbox, they spend hours playing with trucks, cars, trains, etc. I'd give it more stars if I could. It's VERY sturdy. We are so happy with the function and design. They can sit on the little cornerstone seats as well use that as a staging area for battles, cars, characters, etc. The cover is great - the sand is always dry. I like that I can put mountains of trucks and diggers in and close the domed lid. A perfect product!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad product, bad experience I purchased this sandbox because of the size - more room for my boys to play than others - and the good reviews I saw online. Unfortunately, I have been 100% disappointed with this product.1) The "sun" design in the top of the box has grooves that are about 1/2 inch deep. They constantly collect water when it rains, leaving standing water - creating a perfect condition for mosquitoes to breed all summer long. Unless I lift the lid and pour out the water every day, there is - literally - mosquito larvae in it. In addition to being a nuicance, this is a health concern (west nile)!!!2) The four corners are designed for a child to sit on and play. When I rested on the corner to help my child (I weigh 120 lbs.), the corner collapsed. While I understand it's not designed for adults to sit on, be careful, or your sandbox will quickly get ruined.3) After only a few weeks of owning the item, the lid has become warped and does not seem to fit securly on the sandbox anymore.4) When I called Step 2 to express my disatisfaction with their product they stated there was nothing they could do, and told me they would SELL me a box if I wanted to try to return it to the store from which it came.The majority of these issues are design issues. I wish I had purchased the "crabbie" sandbox instead. I am now out $$$ for the "naturally playful" sandbox and left with a *very* bad impression of Step 2 based on my customer service experience.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product The sand box is a great item it could be a bit bigger but other than that it is great. My 2-year old loves it. They sit on the corner's of the box and put their feet in so the can have more space. I also sit and play in it with her. It blends in great with the slide, table, cottage house and swing set. I would recommend this item. I have had the sand box for a year now and it is still in good condition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Toy! Bought this for our older son 6 yrs ago and it is still in use and in great shape! Our younger child who is four has taken it over. Shows very little wear and has been outside for the past six years. Top has never come off....even during theterrible storms we get here in TN. One of the best toys we have ever purchased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Addition Beautiful design. I am in love with the whole Naturally Playful collection. The sun is in most of the units and coordinates everything and makes the whole collection seem "rich." Although, these items are priced very well! The box is perfect for my daughter and a friend, or her dog, hopefully not the cat!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sandbox My Mom actually owns this sandbox and got it second-hand. Not sure how long the previous owners had it but it still looks brand-new. My son loves to play in it when he goes to Grandma's house. The only complaint is the center of the sun on the cover is now depressed and collects water when it rains.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son's favorite toy My son received this for his 1st birthday. It was an instant hit. It is still his favorite toy. It is very durable. The cover always stays on through the worst weather including microburst thunderstorms, nearby lightening strikes, nor'easter storms and several feet of snow. This is a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it My son of 2 was so excited when he got this as b-day present. I filled it with colored balls for now and he loves to sit in it between all these balls and play. Need to find a day to go to the beach to get some sand :-) I'm sure he will loves it even more then.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Great product. It does look smaller than it is. Plenty of room for two 3 year old's to play in. Let me save you the math, (6) 50lb bags of play sand from your local lumber mega mart will fill this just about 3/4 full, maybe a little more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids Love it My son plays with this all the time. It fits nicely on our back deck and we have had it for a year now. My only issue is we can't find it in a store local to us so we can buy another one for my parents' house.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks nice and keeps sand dry This is a good sized sandbox which looks nice. Lid fits nice and snug and both my children love playing in this together or alone. Hours of fun with little effort, the simple things in life are the best!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Naturally Playful Sandbox is just that! We have had the sandbox for only a couple of weeks & have gotten numerous compliments from other parents. It is attractive & blends into the backyard nicely.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smaller than I thought I chose this one because I thought it was bigger. I like that it's deep and sand doesn't get out too much, but wish there was more leg room!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality for a step2 product First let me say, I love step 2 products, we have numerous ones, ride in cars, a kitchen, slides, climbers, and now this sandbox. I have loved all the products and not had a problem until now. I purchased this sandbox at the end of last summer for my kids and didn't get to use it since I bought it end of season. Unfortuately all winter the lid blew off, the sand got soaked even when the lid was on due to all the holes. By the end of winter there were holes all over the lid, it is very flimsy and not only won't stay on but apparently can't withstand the weather itself. When summer finally came, my kids had fun playing in the sand box, but the sand is always soaked due to the cover being blown off and all the holes in it. I wrote to step 2 a few months ago about this problem asking if I could get a new lid, and never heard back from them, so apparently customer service is not so good. All my other step2 products were so easy to put together unlike little tikes similar products, and they always have been sturdy. Now this sandbox itself is great, very large and looks great, my kids enjoy playing in it, but the lid is just horrible. My 1 yo tried to climb on it one day(when it actually stayed on the snadbox) and it colapsed in. I was able to pop it back out, but it really is useless. It is unfortunate because the sandbox itself is so great, but I may have to buy another sandbox with a sturdier lid for next year now. I would not recommend this sandbox due to the lid.

    Are there drain holes to drain the little bit of water we added to the sand without draining the sand?

    Asked by: Shelley
    Wow...your answer is to call someone else...nice customer service.  You could always drill a couple of small holes and attach a fine mesh to allow water to flow through but not the sand.
