This sandpit is brilliant. Really good size so several children can play in it or just enjoy stomping around in the sand.
Can't think of any except that the cover needs to be weight down with bricks or something to avoid it coming off.

Lovely big sandpit for at least three to four children to have space to play. Wood appears well-treated and reasonably easy build. Sturdy and safe.
Downsides are you need at least 80 kg of sand for decent depth, which ought to be mentioned when you order. The groundsheet is very thin, so really don't know how long this will last and the cover really does need ties and fittings to keep it tied down. Ours is currently weighted down by plant pots etc to stop it blowing off in a breeze.

It's large meaning both my children can get in and still have loads of room! Looks brilliant too!
The ground sheet is loose under the wooden structure. We nailed the ground sheet to the outside wood so no sand could leak out. The cover sheet is just placed on top, no elastic or anything so we put a few bricks on overnight to stop blowing off, even with these bad points I would still recommend.

My little boy loves this sand pit, big enough for a few children to sit in and play.
The cover ideally needs to be fixable to the frame to keep it in place.

I was surprised by the size when i put this together! its very good for kids and friends, or even you !
its simple to put together providing you think about it, my tip is to make sure it all lines up or you find yourself starting again.
its exactly what it says it is, lots of space for fun .
i just wish the rain cover was better, due to the size, it collects alot of water and sinks in so you constantly have to keep emptying it , but great product for summer time!

My two year old daughter loves this. We struggle to get her to come inside the house now. The little flat panels are great for her t sit on to take off her boots and its a great size for more than one child. I would certainly recommend it although be prepared to be finding sand everywhere in your home! I only wish they sold it with a solid lid as the sheet plastic cover is quite flimsy and blows away at the slightest sign of a breeze.

Really pleased with the size and strength of this product. The sandpit easily accommodates two 4 year olds and has been a great hit. I wish the cover was a little more substantial, e.g. had elasticated edge so it stayed in place but at the moment it is being held in place with heavy stones as weights. Also, beware, it takes a lot of sand!!
A good buy and very much enjoyed.

This sandpit was for our two children to be able to play in it together. The quality and design is very good. Our children absolutely love it. The only thing that could be better is the mat that goes under the sand does not attach to the wooden frame so the sand comes out. We simply tacked it around the outer edge which seems to have worked.
