Improve upon the sandbox coverThe 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.

Great ProductMy four year old daughter loves it. Big enough for her and another child to get into. Practical table and bench is nice. She loves to have lunch and snacks outside. Umbrella is great for shade in the hot Georgia sun.

YES made in the U.S.A.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...

Not good if used for a sandbox!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.

Was great for a yearProbably 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.

Could have been great but was not!Bought this for an Easter gift for my kids and when we opened it, the cover was warped and terribly flimsy. Then upon inspection of the sandbox we noticed that the sandbox was bent as well. This would have been a great product if the cover was as sturdy as the other naturally playful items or if it has bungies to secure the cover on. Took it back and the store manager opened three others and they all had the same problems so we ended up with just the regular naturally playful sandbox which had a much sturdier design for half the price. I was really bummed as this product could have been great!

Better Pool than Sandbox!I decided I did not want an actual sandbox because then you have sand covered children. We opt to use this as a great little kids pool and lunch table. My favorite things about it are: -it's just the right depth for water for small children -the optional umbrella provides some sun protection -it drains quickly -having the table up top makes for a great surface to conduct "scientific water experiments" while playing in the water -the attached table also means they can eat while playing in the pool or come out and take a break. My Least Favorite things are: -The included umbrella will almost certainly have to be replaced each year. It can't withstand much wind. -The picnic table part becomes a fantastic place for spiders to hide so you need to be dilligent about checking it and cleaning them out.
Does the sandbox have a drain hole or do the two pieces come apart easily if was being used as a baby pool in order to drain?
