We have the ELC table one. It is split into two halves, and comes with an elasticated lid and lots of toys as well. It also only takes one bag of sand to fill it, so it's not too bad to replenish the sand each year. I like it because the kids don't actually have to sit in sand to play with it, so it minimises mess. The cover doesn't look like it will stand up to much, but ours has lasted very well with no leaks for 3 years, and we live in peninne yorkshire- plenty of rain to put it to the test!
We have a stand up one from Tesco, which doubles as a water tray.
It only cost £10, but it is a pain because the legs don't click into place, so every time you move it the legs fall off!!!
We are now very tempted by the gorgeous wooden boat sandpit in the Great Little Trading catalouge.
It has a canopy & a wheel for them to play with.
The down side is the price - £149!!!
the little tikes turtle sandpit is good. it is cheap, has a lid and easy to move around the garden to stop getting patchy grass.
toys r us do a good selection of similar sandpits, different animals for different sizes, i think theres a turtle, ladybird, hippo etc
I have ordered the tchibo one that everyone was talking about on here. Its £50, wooden, with a lid that folds down into benches either side and with a canopy over the top. Can only see it in the catalogue but it looks like a bargain.
Thanks everyone. We went to toys r us yesterday to have a browse at their selection. Not a lot to chose from really. We ended up getting roped into buying a frame with two swings and a double swing on. DDs can both play with it - whereas we only had a single swing before. It was a bargain so we couldn't turn it down.
Have decided to keep the sandpit we have already for now - it seems just as good as any of the others we have seen elsewhere.
