Joanne, Ewe Mum

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easily assembled due to very clear instructions and numbered / labelled parts; there were only one or two pieces that required me to ask my husband(!!) as to the orientation.

My two year old son loved it, and I am sure that it will last him years (my 15 year old son also thought it was a pretty cool sandpit, and spent some time playing in it with his brother!

Very pleased with the product overall.
Bad points:
Only a couple of minor ones really:

Each piece of the red rope supplied could do with being a small bit longer; the two small pieces, designed to secure the flag to the boat base, were just not long enough to do the job.

As a method of securing the sandpit cover to the sides of the boat, velcro seemed like a neat idea; however, the velcro strips could do with being a bit stickier, as (except for the poor insects that get stuck to them) they keep coming away from the boat.

sara, glasgow Mum

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
easy enough to asemble.
large enough for both my kids yo play in it without getting in each others way.
sail came off eaily when the weather turned windy & was worried it might break as winds of 50mph.
Bad points:
not weather sealed which should be done considering it's an outdoor toy made out of wood.
thought the storage could have been on hinges.

vivian , Epworth Mum

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Overall I am very disappointed with the sand pit-it is too expensive for the quality. The assembly time for this product is 1-2 hours and requires two people. The bottom of the sandpit has no fixed base-just a flimsy piece of material is supplied that needs to be nailed into the ground-this does not allow you to move the sandpit around or put it on a stone patio. My husband made a MDF base for it. The toy staorage area has no base and the top is not hinged. I would not recommend this product.
