Rated 2 out of 5 by NJ3GirlsMom Beware! It leaks!
We recently purchased this sand table for our 3 yr old, as she loves to play with sand, but were disappointed in it very quickly. We placed it on our deck with the lid securely attached, but after 1 night of rain, the entire inside is filled with water and the sand is ruined! There's no place for the water to go, so we now have to dump the entire thing. I've contacted Step 2 directly and was told by their Customer Service Rep that there's nothing they can/will do and she suggested we try putting silicone around the holes where the cable goes through. Just another poorly created product that the manufacturer continues to make money off of!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma Hon sand table is multipurpose
The sand table ordered for our grandson has proven to be multi-purpose. We are in a colder climate and haven't seen much spring as yet and are making good use of the sand table indoors until we can play outdoors. Playdoh and finger paints are good fun and easy clean up in the sand table. Our 2 1/2 year old grandson has a wonderful time playing and parking his trucks and cars in the sand table and using the top as his highway for miscellaneous vehicles. Eventually the sand table will make it outside or maybe we need another - one for indoors and one for outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom on wheels Great Product!
We've had this sand table for almost a month, and it has been such a hit for our 18 month old! It's just the perfect height for her, and it also makes it easier for me (as a disabled parent) to play with her. It's deep enough for good digging without being too deep, holding a 50lb bag of play sand perfectly. I like that she's not sitting in the sand, so she's not getting as dirty. Also, the shovels it came with are the perfect size for little hands. She and her friends (most ages 2-4) will play at this box for easily an hour, quite a long time at this age.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice sandbox, but could be better
This is a very nice sandbox. The kids really like it and it keeps them cleaner than a sandbox they sit in. It would be nice if it had adjustable heights. My five-year-old daughter has to bend over quite a bit to play in it and if I put a chair up to it her legs do not fit underneath. I would like to be able to make it higher. I also thought it was going to be deeper to put more sand, but there is adequate room. I hope step two comes out with a sandbox for a little bit bigger kids. This one seems more suited for 1 to 3-year-olds.

This sandbox is great. I bought this for my little girl when she was just 1 and now is is 3. It still looks like it did when we pulled it out of the box. It has been moved all over our yard. She even sits in it. Its been great having during parties. All the kids love it. I was kind of weird about her sitting in sand so this was a perfect buy. It also came with a lid so its easy to keep the cats out!!!!!! I'm glad we have it and my daughter still loves it. She go's to it everytime we go out. Its real fun to put colored sand in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Columbiawife Kids are loving it!
Assembly took all of about one minute - the legs just snapped on and it was ready to go. We put it in the backyard, added sand and let the kids go. It was a bday gift for our 2 yr old and she is very protective of it already! Description says it will hold up to 80 lbs of sand, but we've discovered that a 50 lbs bag works just right. It doesn't overflow but allows for the lid to go on top and close properly. (It was tested out the first night we had it. A huge rain storm came thru and the next day there was no water inside whatsoever!!)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Grandma Cuckoo Great idea, but frustrating flaw
The sand table would be perfect for my grandchildren, except that it fills with water every time it rains, then algae and mold grow in the sand unless I constantly empty water and air it out. I'm very disappointed in that particular aspect. It seems strange that others report that their sand stays dry. A drain with a screw-in plug might help, or at least make it easier to maintain adequately. I have tried to position the lid to repel rain, but nothing has helped. I have had to replace the sand several times this summer.

I loved it for the first year and a half. Once the bungy cord broke it was never the same - leaked and the lid wouldn't stay on even with the replacement. Now the whole lid blew off in a storm and is gone. A replacement lid costs almost as much as a whole new sandbox so it's not worth it! I will buy a new one for a few dollars more, but not this one. Which is a shame because I liked it, but it didn't last. I'm sorry but a child's toy should last more than 1.5 years! Very disappointed in Step 2 for the first time.
