Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I purchased a winner! We love the Play Center Sandbox. The umbrella and bench/table combo is wonderful. My daughter (2 1/2 years old) loves to make sand castles along the table top and the umbrella makes the shade priceless. She loves to sweep off the table with a little outdoor brush that we purchased. Even after a thunderstorm, the cover has not blown off nor has water leaked into the sand. The umbella detaches easily when the wind picks up. The plastic is sturdy even when mom comes to play and the natural color does not clash in the backyard. I only used three 50 lb bags of sand so far which is plenty for a toddler. We are very happy with this purchase.This is our third Step 2 purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Pool than Sandbox! I decided I did not want an actual sandbox because then you have sand covered children. We opt to use this as a great little kids pool and lunch table.My favorite things about it are:-it's just the right depth for water for small children-the optional umbrella provides some sun protection-it drains quickly-having the table up top makes for a great surface to conduct "scientific water experiments" while playing in the water-the attached table also means they can eat while playing in the pool or come out and take a break.My Least Favorite things are:-The included umbrella will almost certainly have to be replaced each year. It can't withstand much wind.-The picnic table part becomes a fantastic place for spiders to hide so you need to be dilligent about checking it and cleaning them out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was great for a year Probably one of the most attractive smaller-sized sandboxes out there. The picnic table attached to it makes it very unique. The BIG problem with it is the flimsy cover-- it barely fits correctly when it's soon as the wind has flung it off a few times, or your toddler has stood on it (which he/she will!) it becomes warped/crushed and never fits again... allowing water and critters to enter. The umbrella is also incredibly cheap and will need to be replaced but it's adorable even without it. The quality issues are surprising given how well made the rest of this sandbox... and all of the other Step 2 pieces we've purchased are. Step 2: redsign the cover and you've got a winner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been great but was not! Bought this for an Easter gift for my kids and when we opened it, the cover was warped and terribly flimsy. Then upon inspection of the sandbox we noticed that the sandbox was bent as well. This would have been a great product if the cover was as sturdy as the other naturally playful items or if it has bungies to secure the cover on. Took it back and the store manager opened three others and they all had the same problems so we ended up with just the regular naturally playful sandbox which had a much sturdier design for half the price. I was really bummed as this product could have been great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of fun and a place for a snack too We've had this product for one year, and it looks as good and is just as entertaining now as it was then. There's plenty of room for 2 pre-school children to play in the sandbox. And when they get hungry and thirsty, I can put their snacks and drinks on the picnic table. My 5 year old still fits comfortably on the picnic bench, but it's still easy enough for my petite 3 year old to sit, too. I am so glad we have this!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good if used for a sandbox! We have had this for over 5 years and yes the base, table and umbrella have stood up well. The problem is the lid! It is so flimsy no matter how you hold it down (we used bungees) water gets in. If you do not secure it down it goes airborne very easily! We have had to empty it yearly but now the lid seems permenantly inverted. Also the bench is only good for small children ages 4 or under after that they will be too big to sit at the table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best gift for a 2yr.oldMom can sit and relax. This sandbox was bought for my grandaughter for her second birthday.We had so much use with this great play center.Every child loves a sand box.My gand daughter turned 10 she ha d out grown the box.Still in excellent condition I was able to give it to a neighbor.Twelve yrs. old and still being used .We never had trouble with lid coming off always dry even after 12 yrs.If it was very windy we did use a bungie cord but that was not very often.Excellent purchase and I recommend this for any mom who would like to relax and watch her child play and be happy.I have no photo but have many memories of the good times of our sandbox.I found that children who did not have a sandbox even if they might be older they always went to the sandbox.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from YES made in the U.S.A. love that it is made in the U.S.A... except the umbrella..which is cute but not really very strong. I think any umbrella isn't going to do very well in the wind expecially for that size of one. But it was nice to have one to help shade him more from the sun. using as a childs pool for now as my grandson is 11 months. We, yes I was in it with him.. love it. also same opinion about the lid as others were saying.. im using bungies to help keep it secure. Fix that and you do have a winner...

Do you sell the plugs for the sandbox !

Asked by: Claire
I had the same issues! I bought it used and i needed one. Order a sink plug 1” off amazon or go to Lowe’s or Home Depot! Works like a charm!!
