After searching online and in many stores I finally decided on this sandbox and couldn't be more pleased! I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old and was worried they might be too old for something like this but I was wrong. I picked it up at my local store and it fit just fine in my truck. I bought 3 bags of 50 lb sand, it will hold 4 if you want. I bought some sand toys and wet the sand a little so they could build castles and they want to play in it everyday. They both fit in it and play for hours on end and love it. It's great that it has a top but I was worried about putting it in the sun bc the sand might get hot and I don't want them sitting in the sun all day so I put it under a tree that has some light shade. It's the perfect size for even a small yard. I will be back there tomorrow to buy another one for my nieces! GREAT BUY

I purchased this sandbox because of the size - more room for my boys to play than others - and the good reviews I saw online. Unfortunately, I have been 100% disappointed with this product.

1) The "sun" design in the top of the box has grooves that are about 1/2 inch deep. They constantly collect water when it rains, leaving standing water - creating a perfect condition for mosquitoes to breed all summer long. Unless I lift the lid and pour out the water every day, there is - literally - mosquito larvae in it. In addition to being a nuicance, this is a health concern (west nile)!!!

2) The four corners are designed for a child to sit on and play. When I rested on the corner to help my child (I weigh 120 lbs.), the corner collapsed. While I understand it's not designed for adults to sit on, be careful, or your sandbox will quickly get ruined.

3) After only a few weeks of owning the item, the lid has become warped and does not seem to fit securly on the sandbox anymore.

4) When I called Step 2 to express my disatisfaction with their product they stated there was nothing they could do, and told me they would SELL me a box if I wanted to try to return it to the store from which it came.

The majority of these issues are design issues. I wish I had purchased the "crabbie" sandbox instead. I am now out $$$ for the "naturally playful" sandbox and left with a *very* bad impression of Step 2 based on my customer service experience.

      Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox:

      We bought this sandbox for our 18 month daughter. She likes to play in it but not as much as our 10 and 7 yr old daughters, who we thought would have no interest in a sandbox. They have spent HOURS in the sandbox and we have only had it a short time. It was the largest plastic sandbox that we have seen and works out great for all 3 of them. We were told the box would need 200 lbs of sand which wasn't enough. We added a total of 350 lbs of sand.

                We have 3 girls, ages 7, 5 and 2. We got this for the two year olds birthday and they ALL love it!!! I have hardly been able to peel them away from it. :) we were looking for something "impermanent"-- that could be moved. We like the natural look to this sandbox-- no giant red crab or green turtle. Fits in with the landscape. The lid has stayed on better than I expected-- I was worried with the wind we get here, but so far have not had an issue! It is a little on the smaller side, though all three of mine insist on being in it together :))

                  Our "turtle" sandbox was fine when our older grandson was little, but there wasn't enough room when his younger brother was old enough to play in it too. The boys love having more room. We put a brick on the top when it's not in use so we don't have to worry about strong winds.

                    The sandbox is a nice size and looks good on my patio. The cover is shaped well to accommodate toys. I read other reviews that complained about the top not being heavy enough to withstand wind. But I was very pleasantly surprised with the weight of the lid. It stays very well put.

                      This is a very sturdy and big sandbox. The kids and adults can sit on the four corners of the box. The lid stays on well and does not blow off easily with heavy winds like the turtle box did.
