My seven year old LOVES his new sandbox. He had the larger turtle sandbox before and he enjoys the extra space and benches. The benches are really nice and I love the way it covers the sand. My husband put the sandbox together in less than an hour with sand and canopy. We bought 750 pounds of sand but only used 450 pounds and it is half an inch from the top. I did notice that it has attracted ants and earwigs. My only suggestion would be for the wood to be a little thicker (more sturdy), treated for bugs, and canopy to have more support to keep rain water from pooling at the ends of the canopy. Overall, we love this investment and have recommended it to numerous friends.
We never got to use the sandbox. The instructions to build it are unclear so we never finished putting it together. The farthest we got was forming the box and putting the seats. The canopy on top is what we never finished because the pre-drilled holes are not set in the right places. The seats fold open and close perfectly fine. What we did notice after about the 3rd day of leaving it out was that it attracted tons of little black bugs I had never seen before. I don't think the wood is treated against bugs. I haven't noticed that the bugs are eating away at the wood but it does definitley attract bugs. I wouldn't want these bugs going into my little one's ears or biting them so they never got to use it. The bugs were way too many to just remove them off the box.
Sandbox was easy to assemble . Hinges should be thicker, they are already bending after less than 2 days of use! Easily remedied by replacing them. Other than the hinges it seems to be holding up well. My three grandsons ages 4,2,2 have not trashed it yet after a half of dozen uses. The canopy has stayed on even after a few very windy days. It is held on with Velcro at 10 points. Will be adding small grommets and screws just to be safe. 600 lbs. of sand fills it a little over half way, which is plenty!
Best part is the covered top to keep critters out, particularly the stray cats!
Overall I give it a 4 out of 5
