This fun turtle sandpit is a perfect size – there’s plenty of room for building sandcastles with friends, but it doesn’t take up lots of space. It’s brilliant value too.
We particularly like the practical lid and the seats around the outside which are designed to maximise the sand play area. It’s made from durable plastic and is suitable for use from 18 months of age.
Tested by Leanne, 32, mum to Darcie, 18 months, and Harrison, five. She says:
We had this one up and running before I’d even boiled the kettle! It’s a great size, but quite shallow, so doesn’t hold a huge amount of sand.
I like the colourful turtle design and the lid is a practical feature, if a little flimsy. The sandpit is strong and sturdy and the ground-level position makes it easily accessible for babies and toddlers.
Tested by Sarah, 33, mum to Emma, two, and Daniel, three, and expecting her third baby. She says:
Perfect for impatient toddlers – this model took two minutes to set up.
I love that it’s completely watertight, so can be left outdoors all year round, and it withstood a typical Mancunian summer day of heavy rain with no problems! The children love sitting on the seats and burying their feet in the sand.
Overall, it’s sturdy, and great value.
Tested by Jayne, 37, mum to Lily, two, Oliver, nine, and Charlotte, 10. She says:
This looks so much fun, although Lily was a little frightened by it at first, but quickly recovered!
I love that it requires no construction whatsoever. It’s a good size and fits neatly on our decking – highly recommended if outdoor space is limited. A strong gust of wind lifted the lid off easily, but all in all this is excellent value.
