==Woolworth's Plum Sandpit==
Jack spends a lot of his time at his nana's house (my mum) and because of this he seems to have a vast amount of items that he can play with and claim as his own round her house. This Plum Sandpit is one of those items which he has had from last year and is at this time of the year getting a fair bit of use from it.
The Plum sandpit is a wooden square shape and this is exactly what we wanted when looking for a sandpit for mums garden. It needed to fit in the right area and be of the right size and when searching online this one seemed to tick all of the boxes.
We ordered it online from Woolworths and did have to pay a delivery charge of around £6 if I remember rightly but to be fair the item was delivered within the space of a couple of days so as far as the service from Woolworth's goes I really couldn't fault them.
The price seemed to be roughly £49.99p everywhere else I looked but Woolworth's had it for a few pounds cheaper and with the posting cost did work out the best place to buy it from. It seems that this is a popular brand among wooden sandpits and you can actually opt for a lot of different sizes and different shapes but measuring the space we were buying this sandpit for this was the best fit we could get.
The dimensions of this one are basically 119 cm squared with a height of 23 of ledge around the whole pit. This is a nice size for Jack to play with and he is able to get inside the sand and have a really good time and it is a far better fit than the cheap plastic shell sandpit which we have in our garden.
Luckily the item came already more or less already put together and it was literally a case slidign the sides to meet each other and then putting in the grounds sheet underneath of the sand pit to protect the sand from the ground. This is shown in a sheet of instruction but is very simpl eto do and took no more than 10 minutes. We purchased 4 bags of sand to go inside the pit and we found that this was about right although another bag wouldn't have gone a miss but Jack didn't seem to mind one bit.
Now seeing as we have had this wooden sandpit since last year, it is still doing well at looking good and being Jack friendly. The wood is still in a very good condition but I did make sure that I used the cover that came with the pit to go over it and mum kept checking that this was in place and protecting the wood and the sand.
The age range of the product states that it is suitable for those children aged from 18 months and over and I would say this is about right but under supervision I am sure a 12 month old could still sit it in quite happily. There is also a ledge on two of the four side of the sandpit and this is perfect for small little bums to sit on and Jack enjoys having his feet in the pit and perching his bum on the ledge and he looks extremely comfortable and content.
The wood that the frame of the sand pit is made from is a very high quality timber and not only is it strong but it feels smooth as well and I don't think there would be too much of a chance of getting a splinter or any thing of the like.
All in all I say that this sandpit is a really good one. It has so far lasted very well and still looks really good and is far more appealing than a horrible bright plastic one like we have in our communal garden. It is made well and it looks good plus Jack really enjoys playing in it and for that reason I will award it a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
