We bought this for our beach house - we have a sand "backyard" and this is a perfect way to keep the kids busy. Also, we keep a few beach umbrellas handy and can shade much of the box. We can sit nearby and instead of the kids darting all over - the sand toys seem to stay in or near the box and so do the kids! and when we're done for the day we can flip down the seats and use the sandbox - no toys lying around and we have an extra side table perfect for our casual outside dinners. The only disappointment is that the color is much darker than it appeared on our computer. The other furniture is weathered teak and the sandbox is a rather dark reddish color. Still, it is much nicer than some plastic toys r us type "sandbox".
