Good value product for young child,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Tikes Turtle Sandbox (Toy)
Having spent far to much time looking at sandpits and considering prices and reviews I decided to buy the Little Tikes Turtle Sandpit for a child's 1st birthday. I decided against cheaper wooden sandpits having read various reviews about them rotting after just a few years. (Note: Prices seem to vary - I paid £34 when product was on offer)
The sandpit is large enough to fit in 2-3 babies/toddlers and older children could use the seats on the edge. It's a friendly looking character and the plastic it's made from is fairly robust whist still being light enough to easily move without a man to hand! The lid is a thinner plastic and I would recommend storing it flat when not on the turtle so as not to distort the shape. The lid on ours fit fine - not a snug fit but it has had to cope with some significant rain and it has not leaked. We've not had a problem with wind yet but a light weight on top would be useful to hold it in place.
Excellent as a ballpit or paddling pool for small child. We've decided to put a groundsheet type liner in the bottom for when we put sand in so that the sand can be lifted out in the sheet without having to lift the turtle full of sand which I imagine would cause it to crack. It'd be fine if you didn't need to move it with sand in but practically this is better for us.
