TP Boat Sandpit
Advantages: good long lasting toy
Disadvantages: lid isn't sold with it
I bought this TP Boat Sandpit around four years ago so that when the children in my family visited they had something to play with in the garden.
I chose this sandpit because I liked the boat shape. The boat is blue and has not faded or cracked over time. It is made from a strong sturdy plastic. The boat has two seats in the corner which is nice for the children if they don't wish to sit in the sand. Although the seats are both on one side it doesn't tip up.
It is called a sandpit but it could be used for water or those little balls. I have the lid for the boat as well so I put water in one side and sand in the other. The lid is sold separately but is pretty much the same as the bottom.
The sandpit is big enough for two or three children to be inside but more can play if they didn't sit in the sand. The size is great for my garden as it is not too big and can be pushed aside when not in use. Because of the size (120cm by 100cm base, 20cm height) it requires a lot of sand or water to fill it. I usually put a couple of bags of sand which fills it approximately half way. Over time it gets emptier and emptier as the children unintentionally throw the sand out of the sandpit. As the sand has to stay in once it's in it is best to have the lid others leaves and dirt get into it which isn't nice for the children to play in.
The children play with the boat at any given chance using it as a boat to sail the sea or a place to bury treasure. They often attempt to build sandcastles but they collapse within seconds as its hard to get the sand to the right wetness.
It is recommended for children over the age of two but I think it depends what you fill it with. I'm sure one years olds would be fine in it with supervision.
This is a great toy for when the suns out. The children play together or alone in it for hours and have all the fun of a beach in the back garden.
