Little Tikes Turtle Sandbox
Advantages: A classic little tikes toy, hard wearing, colourful, easy to clean, lid is secure
Little tikes has been on the go for years, i remember my little brother having little tikes toys and ride on and he is now 24. My brother even had the exact sandpit when he was pre school age so i was thrilled when i seen the same sandpit for sale in toys r us.
I bought the sandpit for my girls when they were around 14 moths old, i purchased some sand toys and a wheel too, the two of them would play for ages just plonked in the sandpit and dig around.
I paid £49.99 for the little tikes sandpit and it seems a lot of money for a plastic sandpit but i know just how good little tikes products are so was prepared to spend that amount.
The sand pit is made from hard wearing moulded plastic. Little tikes turtle sandpit base is shaped like a turtle with a head at the top, and four rounded bumps at the sides to resemble legs. The head has two big eyes these are also plastic and not stickers.
The good thing about the sand pit is it has a lit shaped like a turtle shell with grooves on it to look like the pattern of the shell.
The lid fits snugly on top of the turtle base and stays in place, even on windy days the lid has not come off. It keeps the rain out completely and little bugs. I like the lid for this reason as the sandpit and my mums house even when the lid is on their is always a puddle in the middle of the sand and maggots from the blue bottles. There would be nothing worse than filling the sandpit up with sand then having to empty it out again and buy more sand.
For the lid to stay on properly there are two plastic thin rods around two inches high on either side of the sand pit, the lid has two indents on it these parts fir into each other to keep the lid secure.
Little tikes sandpit has a thick ledge going around the edge this is nice as the girls can sit on there whilst playing or kneel outside and lean in however they prefer to sit on the ledge with their toes in the sand now.
I was surprise how much sand the sandpit took around four full bags of play sand, one bag of sand holds 15kg.
Little tikes turtle sandpit has been sitting on the grass on the same sport since the day we bought it, i haven't packed it away for winter because we had no more room in our shed. After a quick wash down last weekend and a rinse with the hose its as good as new again, the colour hasn't faded either so i'm very pleased.
The sandpit comes with an age range from one year olds to six.
My daughters love this sandpit as do their little friends that come to play. We have many sand toys that keep them busy. I feel sand is great for children to play as can be educational for instants can be creative when building or making shapes in the sand, encourages verbal skills, social skills if there is more than one child playing, and be imaginative.
This is a lovely sand pit, hard wearing, fun, bright and a little tikes classic. This is sure to keep the children entertained for hours during the summer as it has for my own kids over the last few years. I highly recommend.
