Great Design and Value
Michelle from Kansas City, MO – Verified Buyer
When trying to get away from the run of the mill turtle sandbox, this is a wonderful alternative. This sandbox has a wonderful appearance that can fit not any yard. The bench/cover is a wonderful design providing seating if one does not want to sit in the sand. Plus, having cats of our one (as well as neighbor animals going through our yard) the cover is a must. It is nice to not hunt down a separate piece that might have blown away. It holds (12) 50 pound bags of sand perfectly. Looking at the design, it appears to be something that may be easy to build on your own, but looking at the pricing of cedar lumber (especially in larger sizes like 2x10's) plus the cost of hardware, the low price of having a sandbox that required very simple assembly was a no brainer. The ONLY downside was that the hinges seemed a touch flimsy...which is an easy remedy if one chooses. The most important point is that our daughter absolutely loves it and enjoys digging away, creating forms, and squishing her toes in the sand.
Is a hit with 3-6 yr olds

The sandbox is made out of quality materials, and is easy to put together. All parts are well organized and mine came in a nice zip lock bag, which allowed me to take a break during the installation. The sandbox does not have a bottom, so if putting on a deck like I did, it will need some weed block fabric to keep the sand from falling out and to let any accumulated water drain out. The hardest parts of the whole install were deciding where to put it, and then to load it up with 13 50 lb. bags of sand. All told, this was a pretty painless way to put in a sandbox in the yard. I got this sandbox for a 3 year old boy and his friends. They've used it for hours on a couple of occasions, and every time it's a challenge to get them to come in out of the sun.
Smallish but perfect for us!

We bought this sandbox because we were looking to build one that was very similar but found this one at a really good price. The assembly was fairly easy - about an hour for a person who is comfortable with tools (my husband). The box will fit 4 children - 2 on each side. That works great for us but I could see that being a draw back for larger groups of children. The bench/cover is easy to use and not heavy to lift open and closed - but heavy enough to keep cats out. The cedar is good quality, looks sharp and smells great in the backyard with the other landscaping. I would definitely recommend this product!
Happy with purchase

We received our sandbox in good condition. The instructions were easy to follow and I had no problem putting the sandbox together. It took me a little over an hour to assemble by myself. The screw holes are pre-drilled which makes it easier to put together. I am happy with the price and the quality of the sandbox and would recommend to others.

Easy to put together, looks nice. The wood splintered in a few areas...not sure if it is for big kids because if they sit on the benches it may break. We painted primary colors to match our playground. Also there is not bottom piece so I had to staple gun some plastic underneath to keep sand inside. Finally, there are cracks in the top, so water can seep in--we have a table cover that we use to cover it and keep the rain and critters out.

The sandbox is easy to put together. I love that it closes up so the cats don't use it as a litter box. Its deep unlike the small plastic sand boxes. The hinges are on the cheap side but they can be replaced. My son plays in it for hours.

I'm very happy with the sandbox. It's exactly as pictured and described and is just what I expected, so I was really happy about that. Seems to be good quality and durable. Very happy with the purchase so far.
Keep them Busy!

Easy to put together. My toddler loves the bench seats. Looks very expensive - comparable to others I've seen for twice the price. This was so easy to put up. I bought the sand and my toddler has been in it all the time. I love that it closes, I have dogs and they would dig in it if it didn't close.
Very pleased with our purchase
Don from Martinez, GA – Verified Buyer
The sandbox is as nice as pictured and described online. It was delivered as scheduled in spite of the winter storm that hit southeastern US. It was easy to assemble and the recommended amount of sand needed was right on the money. My grandsons love it and my daughter is extremely happy with the way it looks and especially with the fact that it can be closed when not in use to keep the neighborhood cats out.
Perfect little sandbox!
Amber from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
This sandbox is great! The neighborhood toddlers just love it, and the cover keeps the neighborhood critters out when it's not in use. We did add a piece of plywood to the bottom, but only because we placed it on an uneven gravel surface. Excellent purchase. Highly recommend!
