Sandpit recommendations please

It's my daughter's birthday soon and we were going to get her a sandpit - the apple one from argos - but it's not in stock for delivery and there aren't any in stock in any of the shops near me. I tried finding out when they would get more but they didn't know.

So it seems we're back to square one trying to find a suitable one. It needs to be less than £40 and suitable for a small garden but big enough for a 3 year old.

Any suggestions welcome please

another vote for the ELC one here. DS is three and we got it last summer.

Just remember to order some sand with it blush

Do you find it leaks? We looked at that one and the reviews weren't too good.

we got this one from tesco. It has a lid so you can keep it dry when it rains.

No leaks for the ELC one - seems v sturdy and well made. It had good reviews when I ordered it last year.....

I had the same problem - apple sandpit not in stock. Homebase have it - more expensive but it is the same one - £17.49.

We have a big one, which would be to big for a small garden, but all it is, is 4 railwatsleppers bolted togther, tis brill wide enough for the mindees to sit on the side and deep enough to keep most of the sand in.
