4.0 out of 5 stars A very well made and attractive sand pit, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garden Games Giant 1.8metre Octagonal Wooden Sandpit 20cm Deep Complete with Underlay and Rain Cover (Toy)
I spent a long time researching the ideal sand pit for my son and daughter who are very tall for their ages 8 and 3 respectively. This one seemed the most ideal because it could easily accommodate 4 or more children. It appeared to be easier than most to assemble and was attractive ! Plus it's price is very fair I think.The lid was and is it's only drawback but I took another reviewer's advice and purchased suitable bungee straps which aren't cheap though, to cross over the top for extra security.The lid does have elastic straps that go over each seat corner which I hadn't known about and was very relieved to find. So as lids go this is better than most from what I've read. The bungees work a treat and if you put something taller in the middle under the lid, then at least the rain water doesn't collect there ! But because the lid isn't on the generous side it really is a tight fit. Water does collect else where which results in pulling the lid away from the edges and many of the corners of the seats being exposed but all in all it works well. We've had some awful winds too and it's stayed on, plus our neighbour's cat hasn't got in side THANK GOODNESS !. It took me over two hours to assemble which was very annoying (!) and a lot longer than it should have taken. If I hadn't made any mistakes and had had some help, it would have been done in 30 to 60 minutes ! I put 20 x 15kg bags of play sand in it, which is more than is recommended but it seemed to need that much ! But I think that's made the walls expand a little more than it's meant too which is no doubt why the lid is slightly too tight ? The sand was another 60 quid ! All in all I'm very pleased with it and my kids and all their friends love it too ! I'd definitely recommend it.
