Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and a good size My oldest three boys, ages 2 to 6, have all really enjoyed playing with the sandbox. The sandbox isn't too large to take up a ton of space in our backyard but still has lots of room for play. I like the built-in spots to sit so they don't have to sit directly on the sand if they don't want to. I really appreciate that a plastic lid is included to keep out bugs, rain, dirt, etc. Having a sandbox cover that is large also lets us keep all the sand toys right in the sandbox so they are ready for play and cleanup is a breeze!Thank you to Step2 for letting me test drive this item as part of the Step2 Test Drive Blogger program.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good size But rain gets in throuh top cut outs I have had this sand box for about 3 years. My grandkids loved to play in it. But rain keeps getting in through cut out in top. I made a duct tape flap and it helps but doesn’t look very nice. If the lid kept out rain I would give a much better review. Also ants seem to want to build beds under the box. Not sure what to do about that. Any suggestions. So the last couple years I emptied it and it leaning against my house. Wish the kid kept the sand dry!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When size matters don't trust the dimens Bought this for my grandkids. Looked at the dimensions of several on the market and, by those given, thought this would be small enough to keep up but large enough for at least 2 at a time to play but it isn't. I guess if they were 2 or 3 more might fit in but at 4 and 5 only one can play at a time. There just isn't enough room so it caused fights and I had to get rid of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandbox! My toddlers really love this sandbox! It is very durable, offers built-in seating, and has plenty of room for creative play. You can use sand, or get creative and use rice, noodles, or shredded paper. Since this box is lightweight, it can be easily moved indoors if desired. I also love the lid since it keeps moisture, bugs, and critters away. Very good product, and it will see years of use in my home!Thank you to Step2 for letting me test drive this item as part of the Step2 Test Drive Blogger program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sandbox! My daughter LOVES her sandbox. Its the perfect size for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Toddler Fun! Playing in this sandbox is my daughter’s new favorite activity and she has even chosen it over pool time! It is the perfect size for my 18 month old and also works for her older neighbor friends (ages 3 and 6), with two children inside. It is a hit with all of them and is large enough to keep her sand toys stored, as well. I love that she can sit on the corners, although she usually likes to jump in and have her legs buried. The cover is great to keep the sand clean, although with our crazy gulf coast storms it did get blown off once in the past two months. The sand was just wet enough to create a new texture, which she enjoyed. It gave me the idea to add some water for her, to change her sensory experience up from time to time. I am very happy with this purchase and see it as something that will get lots of use for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this sandbox! I was a little worried about adding a sandbox to our backyard thinking that it would eat up all the "play space" but I loved that this sandbox was compact but still big enough to be fun. The little seats on each corner are probably my favorite feature as they allow the kids to play without actually having to sit in the sand (if they hate sand on them like my son does) but it also give more room to play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sandbox! Great service! Would definitely buy again! We bought this for our twin 3 yr olds and they spend hours in it. It was a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but it fits both of my kids just fine. The lid fits on well, the seating is great and it only takes 3-4 bags of sand to fill. I got emails updating me on the status of my order and it wven arrived 4 days before expectex. #sweepstakes

Does the lid on the current version ke pathetic sand dry?

Asked by: KathyW
Not really. There is no rubber seal on the lid. Just a plastic lid resting on the box and there are two holes on the side that water could also get in. But dry sand does not pack together to make sand castles so you want the sand a little wet. Bad rain storms could feasibly soak the interior as that happened to me, so to prevent that from happening again I put a tarp over top.

Would the Step2 Play & Store Sandbox hold water instead of sand? I'd like to use it as a sturdy doggie pool.
Asked by: Chantal T F.
I think so- it rained recently and we forgot to cover it, and it did hold some water. It's pretty small, so it wouldn't work well for a doggie pool for our dog (Labrador). She might enjoy it just to lay in to cool off.
