View Full Version : sand/water table question - i've missed the other posts

I came to this site to ask for recommendations on a sand/water table. I'd love to get one for dd for the summer months.

I guess this board has seen a lot of these types of posts, but if you could indulge me i'd love to hear about some recommendations.

thanks in advance!

We have really liked our Step 2 Naturally Playful sand and water table. For the price it seems really good. It has a cover, an umbrella, and then lots of extras come with it (boats, shovels, other accessories). http://www.step2.com/product.cfm?product_id=1304&stp2ssid=05945F4A-1143-E489-2DFDF0B062E11353

There have been some threads over on the Around the House baby boards if you need more ideas. :)

I have the Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Activity Center and definitely recommend it. http://www.step2.com/product.cfm?product_id=1304&stp2ssid=0593A996-1143-E489-2D6EDE43FE55AB0D
A few things I like about it:
- the lid is secure and can be used as a table for matchbox cars.
- the umbrella is big enough and tall enough I can sit on a chair under it.
- I like being able to mix the sand and water to make mudpies and sandcastles (what fun is dry sand?). I don't mind when DD pours sand into the water either, it is a great sensory experience.
- it was quick and easy to put the legs on, though I do recommend using a power screwdriver.

we have the one from target and it works well. But I prefer to just have water in it. The combo = moldy sand in my experience last summer...
