We love the Play Center Sandbox. The umbrella and bench/table combo is wonderful. My daughter (2 1/2 years old) loves to make sand castles along the table top and the umbrella makes the shade priceless. She loves to sweep off the table with a little outdoor brush that we purchased. Even after a thunderstorm, the cover has not blown off nor has water leaked into the sand. The umbella detaches easily when the wind picks up. The plastic is sturdy even when mom comes to play and the natural color does not clash in the backyard. I only used three 50 lb bags of sand so far which is plenty for a toddler. We are very happy with this purchase.
This is our third Step 2 purchase.

Overall this seems like a good product even though I am a bit concerned about how durable the plastic will be with kids sitting on the sandbox edges. I really like the combo of the table & sandbox and the umbrella is a great idea. The colors are very pleasant & blend into the yard very well.

I am a bit perplexed by a two things though. First, the lid seems like an afterthought. It just seems to rest on top of the base & doesn't really fit the contours of the base. Secondly, there are 3 holes around the perimeter of the sandbox base that do not appear in the pictures. They do not appear to have any function & seem like they will just collect debris & harbor insects. I think we will need to add our own caps to these holes.

I'd see about other comparable options before recommending to anyone.

    My four year old daughter loves it. Big enough for her and another child to get into. Practical table and bench is nice. She loves to have lunch and snacks outside. Umbrella is great for shade in the hot Georgia sun.

    Comments about Step2 Sandbox Summertime Play Center:

    love that it is made in the U.S.A... except the umbrella..which is cute but not really very strong. I think any umbrella isn't going to do very well in the wind expecially for that size of one. But it was nice to have one to help shade him more from the sun. using as a childs pool for now as my grandson is 11 months. We, yes I was in it with him.. love it. also same opinion about the lid as others were saying.. im using bungies to help keep it secure. Fix that and you do have a winner...

    Comments about Step2 Sandbox Summertime Play Center:

    We have had this for over 5 years and yes the base, table and umbrella have stood up well. The problem is the lid! It is so flimsy no matter how you hold it down (we used bungees) water gets in. If you do not secure it down it goes airborne very easily! We have had to empty it yearly but now the lid seems permenantly inverted. Also the bench is only good for small children ages 4 or under after that they will be too big to sit at the table.

    Comments about Step2 Sandbox Summertime Play Center:

    Probably one of the most attractive smaller-sized sandboxes out there. The picnic table attached to it makes it very unique. The BIG problem with it is the flimsy cover-- it barely fits correctly when it's new...as soon as the wind has flung it off a few times, or your toddler has stood on it (which he/she will!) it becomes warped/crushed and never fits again... allowing water and critters to enter. The umbrella is also incredibly cheap and will need to be replaced but it's adorable even without it. The quality issues are surprising given how well made the rest of this sandbox... and all of the other Step 2 pieces we've purchased are. Step 2: redsign the cover and you've got a winner.

    Comments about Step2 Sandbox Summertime Play Center:

    The table is great and the kids love it but rain gets in and the lid is flimsy. We bought ours used, wouldn't have paid full price. If using sand, it needs to be changed each year. Great for [$], not quite for new price..

      Comments about Step2 Sandbox Summertime Play Center:

      Bought this for an Easter gift for my kids and when we opened it, the cover was warped and terribly flimsy. Then upon inspection of the sandbox we noticed that the sandbox was bent as well. This would have been a great product if the cover was as sturdy as the other naturally playful items or if it has bungies to secure the cover on. Took it back and the store manager opened three others and they all had the same problems so we ended up with just the regular naturally playful sandbox which had a much sturdier design for half the price. I was really bummed as this product could have been great!

          This is an awesome set! I purchased this when my daughter was one and a half...2 years ago. Ours is a slightly different color combo...the table part and umbrella are burgundy/red. It has held up beautifully and has been outside constantly, even in winter. There is no fading and nothing has cracked or been damaged! The bolts havn't even rusted! Four kids can sit at the table, and it rinses off easily after messy projects and lunches. We use the sandbox as a pool though...and it's awesome because of the drain and the hard plastic cover. Truthfully, I let it drain partially and then pick it up from the side and dump it...it's really easy to clean with Lysol and rinse in this position! We use a 20 ft long "Python" hose set (supposed to be for fish tanks)to fill the pool from the kitchen sink with hot water, so even if it was cooler out last summer it was like a hottub for my daughter! She frequently even took a bath for the night in it too! Can't say enough good things about this!
