I bought this for my daycare. [...] the kids are still having a blast i put some moon sand in so they can mold and they love it! i have not used the water feature yet as it is just starting to warm up enough for wet kids outside! i do wish the umbrella could stay in when i put the lid on though, thats a bit annoying, but not a huge deal either.

I love the idea of this table but I was sad to discover that after spending $[...] the water leaked out from the leg holes very quickly! I read another review that said they ended up putting caulk around the leg holes so we might try that.

    Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Sand and Water Activity Center:

    I do not normally write reviews, but this purchase was a great one. I had been doing some looking at different sand tables for our VERY active 1 1/2 year old son and decided this was the one I was going to buy. I just so happened to find this at a yard sale last fall for a small price. It was missing all of the little toys and umbrella that come with it, but was pretty certain I could get a replacements. I brought it home, cleaned it up and called to get the replacement( for a small fee,which was as simple as a phone call and they sent them in 3-4 days) my son begs to play with this on our deck. We have had dirt, rocks, sand,lime, and water It is the prefect height for him. We have had play dates and every child we have had here LOVES it!!! If you are debating on purchasing this, I would! I play on bringing it inside this winter for indoor sensory play.

        Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Sand and Water Activity Center:

        Why would you design a water table with holes in the water basin?!? The construction requires the legs, topped with rubber nipples, to go through holes that have no business being there in the first place. TERRIBLE design. I can only assume the holes in those positions made it three cents cheaper to manufacture. I should not need to caulk my kid's water table! =P

              I bought one years ago for my daycare. It has stayed outside everyday since in the harsh mid-west weather. It is still keeping snow and rain out, so I bought one for our grandchild, too.

                      After assembling this, and putting the water in...the water just poured out through the legs... You would think after spending[$] on this it would atleast be usable. I had to return it because it was pointless. I would not buy.

                        This is a great thing to have on a sunny day. My kids love playing in it. They are too young to really get it so they mostly just dump the water out so I havent bothered adding sand. But they really like it and I like that it has an umbrella to shade them from the hot sun. It is cute and the cover will be great for storing it during the winter. There were complaints of the legs leaking but ours came with rubber to go over the head of the legs and there are zero leaks.

                            The sand table is on our deck and our almost 2yr.old uses it almost every day. The water side is easy to drain and clean and there is plenty of room on both sides for her to play.

                              We purchased this for our granddaughters, ages 1 and 2, at our daughter's suggestion. What a cool design! We can sit in chairs and interact with the girls while they play and create--very convenient. The girls absolutely love it! All the toys--and umbrella--fit in the table with the lid closed.

                                I did a lot of research before I bought this product as a birthday gift for my 2 year old grandson and all of the positive reviews convinced me. Assembly wasn't difficult,(I followed the picture only directions completely) & it is definitely made easier with an electric screwdriver as you need to pierce the pilot holes in the plastic. The look and quality of the product is great, but after filling one side with sand, I put water into the other side & it just poured out around one of the legs and leaked steadily around the other as well. I contacted customer service and she said she could help me "troubleshoot" She told me to try applying vaseline around the rubber nipples that go on top of the legs before screwing them in & that I should carefully tap the drain hole assembly to make sure it was seated properly. I pointed out to her that this information would have been much more useful BEFORE I had put in the 16 leg screws & filled it with sand & water. Now I need to empty out the sand & disassemble the whole thing. My concern is that the screws will not hold as well because the holes will be stripped. We'll see, but why not put those two steps into the instructions in the first place? The company knows it could be a problem because they had the solution right away. I also agree with other reviewers about the umbrella stabilizer which is scewed on underneath the table. Not very accessible if you want to cover up the table after use. I am very disappointed because I have had good experiences with Step2 products in the past.
