Great sandbox, which my 2-year-old and her friends love playing in. The mesh cover could be a little bigger, but works well to keep stray animals from using it as a litter box. I would definitely recommend using a weed barrier underneath rather than the plastic tarp with holes that comes with it. Weed barrier will allow the rain to go through faster. I'm giving it four stars because after just two weeks, I can tell that the platform seats aren't going to last long without cracking down the middle. When an 8-year-old plopped down on one yesterday, I saw it give way quite a bit and heard a tiny cracking noise, although no physical evidence of a crack yet. I'm sure someone handy could put some sort of braces under the seats, but that's just more work. Super simple to put together. No need for any tools other than the allen wrench that comes with it. I filled it (pretty full but definitely not to the top) with 1200 pounds of sand - Yup! 24 50-pound bags of play sand. This is a good sized sandbox. Pros: Big size, seats for the kids, cover to keep animals out Cons: Weak seats prone to cracking.
The sandbox to own!

This is a fantastic sandbox! We were looking for one big enough for our almost 2 year old to play in, both with us and with any of his little friends that came over to play. We also wanted it to be big enough for our family as it grew (i.e., to accommodate multiple children easily). It was easy to put together, beautiful, and large. With the frame being wood, the inside space isn't compromised by thick plastic like many sandboxes are. The seats are sufficient size for my son and myself. At one point, we had 2 adults, 2 teens, and my son all playing in the sandbox without anyone feeling limited in play space! Lol, the adults had as much fun as the kids! A great purchase and worth the money! Pros: Large size, sturdy, easy to assemble, beautiful wood Cons: The cover is a bit flimsy
Buy It NOW!

I couldn't be happier! Arrived on time in great condition. My husband put it together by himself with our kids trying to help him here and there. Took him less then an hour and he's not handy. My kids LOVE this sandbox. Hours of fun! Ages 5 and 2. My kids are very tall for their ages and this fits them comfortably. Very sturdy. We love it because we can sit at the patio and watch them, play with them or do some weeding or watering flowers while they stay put. My 2yr old is a runner so this is really a miracle for me. BUY IT! The cover is nice too. I was debating between this one and the KidKraft with the canopy...I'm glad I went with this one bigger sandbox and the canopy would of gotten in the way for when mom or dad play in the sandbox with them. Pros: Sturdy, Great size Cons: None yet
Occupied kids all day long!!

Purchased this sandbox for my two kids because it came with a cover to keep neighborhood cats from using it and I liked the corner seats. Took me about an hour to put together, very easy assembly. I either missed it on the description or it didn't say but it comes with a thick piece of plastic for the bottom with holes in it for drainage. Which was awesome because it meant I did not need to purchase anything to put on the bottom. My girls, ages 3 and 5, have plenty of room and literally played in it all day when they first got it! Cover is not blue....it was gray. Pros: Excellent product for the money, smells good! Cons: none

I ordered this for my grandson for his 3rd birthday. It was delivered with no issues or events. Easily put together - my daughter and SIL did it. Has benches on each corner and a liner for the inside, prior to putting the sand inside the box. There are holes in the liner, in order for the water to empty, but a few more would be better. Biggest deal is getting the sand. You'll need quite a lot of it!! A pickup will come in handy. No, the Big box stores don't deliver it to your house. The cover is 'meh'. In the long run, a tarp or larger, more sturdy screen would be better. He enjoys rolling his trucks and his baby sister enjoys it as well. There is plenty of room for at least 4 kids.

This was the nicest sandbox I found that wasn't plastic or cost a fortune! My son was thrilled when we gave it to him for his fifth birthday. It was pretty simple to put together, took all but an hour with just me. If hubby was there to help would have only taken half the time. Seems pretty good quality, didn't treat the wood but probably will next spring. The cover just fits, some debris has gotten in but keeps big stuff and animals out. We used 10 bags of play sand which filled it pretty well.
A better cover would make it more valuable.

We were looking to build a sandbox but the cost was going to be too much. We found this and it seemed to be a good compromise. I am a little disappointed in it's construction. The plastic doesn't cover the whole bottom so we have grass growing up near the corners. And the cover isn't big enough really. We are going to build a cover to keep animals out better. But we are happy to have a sandbox for the children and it wasn't hard to put together at all.
Great size, and excellent quality!

I bought this sandbox for my 2 boys (18 mos. And 6 y.o). I was immediately impressed with the ease of assembly and quality of the materials. I was able to assemble the sandbox in an hour. The kids love it! The construction is very durable, they both have jumped and walked on the corner seats and sides and we have had no issues with any of the sections coming apart. One thing I would wish to improve would be the size of the mesh cover, while it covers the whole box I really have to pull at it to stretch to each corner. All in all it's a great sandbox!
Large, easy to assemble sandbox
Deana from Addison, IL – Verified Buyer
We bought this sandbox for our 2 year old son and wanted something large enough for when he is older and/or has friends over to play with him (or mom). This was very easy to assemble. The downfall is the cover. Based on the picture in the ad, we expected something a little more substantial. What was sent was a cloth-like mesh cover that tied, but left gaps along the sides which I feel are large enough to allow small animals to enter the sandbox. I will probably have to purchase a better cover. Pros: Great Value, Easy to assemble, Cons: flimsy cover
Kristin from Spring Branch, TX – Verified Buyer
We got this for my son's 3rd birthday and he loves it. Seems pretty easy to assemble and it's a great size. At one point, I think there were about 5 (small) kids playing in it at once. The corner seats provide just enough space for kids to sit. The wood seems pretty sturdy and the liner has some holes in it to let water drain so the sand doesn't stay wet and gross. Unfortunately, the cover was put away somewhere, so I haven't had a chance to try it yet.
