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.

The setup is easy and the overall features are great. The kids get a lot of use and the overall durability is good. Unfortunately the latch system provides no use. It bungees on only one side, so the cover does not stay on in windy situations. We had to buy separate bung cords and create our own tie down system. Additionally, almost immediately the cover started warping in the sun, and doesn't sit in place properly so rain gets in. It was good for the price, but if I had the chance again, I would opt for a wooden one even though it would cost a little more.

Cute sandbox and table but CHEAP lid

By Sam

Pros

Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Summertime Play Center:

Bought this for my year and a half old. The product is cute but the lid is VERY CHEAP, does not attach on correctly, and will not hold up with a breeze or rain. I think the product is extremely overpriced for this one flaw.

Improve upon the sandbox cover

Pros

Cons

  • Very Flimsy Cover

    Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Summertime Play Center:

    The only complaint I have about this product is the sandbox cover. It is virtually useless. Without modifications to hold the cover in place, rain, debris, and animals will have no trouble finding a way in. The cover should snap on or slide onto a track so that it fits snuggly. This does not live up to the Step2 reputation.

          Bought this one 4 years ago. Still works great. You do have to bungee the cover down in windy conditions (and all winter long). I used cheap bungee cords and had to adjust the hooks a bit, no big deal. No warped cover here, but we don't have Florida sunshine, and I don't let the kids step all over it.

          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...

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Summertime Play Center:

          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.

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Summertime Play Center:

          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 new...as 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.

          The table is great and the kids love it but rain gets in and the lid is flimsy. We bought ours used, wouldn't have paid full price. If using sand, it needs to be changed each year. Great for [$], not quite for new price..
