How to assemble the Step 2 Naturally Playful Sandbox:
Like I mentioned earlier, unlike pretty much all other similar products, the Naturally Playful Sandbox comes fully assembled. Once you take it out of its box, all you’ll have to do is move it to your back yard or garden and fill it with sand. Please note that the sand is not included in the package, so you’ll have to buy it yourself. It can be found on just about every hardware store, just remember to specify that the sand is for a sandbox! You should get so called safe sand that doesn’t contain ant silica in it.
Although everybody loves the Step 2 Naturally Playful Sandbox, some people who bought it do have a couple of minor issues with it. The first issue, is that the lid can be blown open by strong winds. You can solve this problem by using some elastic cables or ropes to make the lid close more securely. Another issue brought up, is the fact that there is no drain on the bottom, which means that should the sand get wet by a sudden rain or something, you’ll have to replace it. Well, as long as you close the lid securely, you won’t run into this problem.
