Love the sandbox--and so does my 18 month old. It seems fairly sturdy and the lid does stay on (although it is sort of thin and won't stand up to a heavy child climbing on top as they are so tempted to do). 2 children and their toys are about all that will fit for play.
Some things to note and I don't know that they are deal breakers for me.
The design in the top holds water so you must dump it after a storm to prevent mosquitoes.
The way the lid and body come together, there are two holes on each side about the size of a toilet paper tube. The lid does cover these, but I can see how another reviewer on another site found a mama mouse nursing her babies inside!

I purchased this sandbox because of the size - more room for my boys to play than others - and the good reviews I saw online. Unfortunately, I have been 100% disappointed with this product.

1) The "sun" design in the top of the box has grooves that are about 1/2 inch deep. They constantly collect water when it rains, leaving standing water - creating a perfect condition for mosquitoes to breed all summer long. Unless I lift the lid and pour out the water every day, there is - literally - mosquito larvae in it. In addition to being a nuicance, this is a health concern (west nile)!!!

2) The four corners are designed for a child to sit on and play. When I rested on the corner to help my child (I weigh 120 lbs.), the corner collapsed. While I understand it's not designed for adults to sit on, be careful, or your sandbox will quickly get ruined.

3) After only a few weeks of owning the item, the lid has become warped and does not seem to fit securly on the sandbox anymore.

4) When I called Step 2 to express my disatisfaction with their product they stated there was nothing they could do, and told me they would SELL me a box if I wanted to try to return it to the store from which it came.

The majority of these issues are design issues. I wish I had purchased the "crabbie" sandbox instead. I am now out $$$ for the "naturally playful" sandbox and left with a *very* bad impression of Step 2 based on my customer service experience.

      Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Sandbox:

      My Mom actually owns this sandbox and got it second-hand. Not sure how long the previous owners had it but it still looks brand-new. My son loves to play in it when he goes to Grandma's house. The only complaint is the center of the sun on the cover is now depressed and collects water when it rains.

        I chose this one because I thought it was bigger. I like that it's deep and sand doesn't get out too much, but wish there was more leg room!

          My kids love this sandbox, they spend hours playing with trucks, cars, trains, etc. I'd give it more stars if I could. It's VERY sturdy. We are so happy with the function and design. They can sit on the little cornerstone seats as well use that as a staging area for battles, cars, characters, etc. The cover is great - the sand is always dry. I like that I can put mountains of trucks and diggers in and close the domed lid. A perfect product!

            Just as others have stated in their reviews this sand box stays completely dry even in the heaviest storms. The lid will not blow off as we had very high winds right after we bought it and it never moved. We have had friends bring their kids over to play and they loved the sand box and are going to get the same one. Also provides great storage for other outdoor toys.

                This is a great sandbox at an exceptional price. Many other boxes we looked at cost much more but didn't offer the attractive features this one does. The plastic is strong and is shaped in a fun castle design. The lid sits securely on top, blocking out the weather when not being used, and is still easy to remove. My daughter loves it.

                  Finally a starter sandbox that isn't an offensively bright color for your yard. My daughter loves it. It arrived and all I did was pop on the lid. So far no animals have gotten into it either.
