This sand and water table was our son's big gift this Christmas. I was looking for a sand and water table for him and after looking at many options, I chose the Step 2. I am so glad that I did. It was easy to put together and seems really sturdy. The table has 2 sides, one for water and the other for sand. It's just the right height and big enough for several kids to fit around it. We had four toddlers playing with it at a playdate and they had plenty of room. It comes with a lid that easily fits on top for when you aren't using it. It also comes with a big umbrella that shades the table and can be adjusted up and down. This table even comes with toys: 2 pots, 2 boats, 2 bridges, and a small shovel.
This has quickly become one of my son's favorite things to do. He loves splashing the water and moving the sand around and filling up the pots with it. It really keeps him busy, which I love! We even used it inside, before it was warm enough to go outside. I put a big bag of lima beans in one side and my son had a ball playing with them. He could still scoop them and move them from place to place, but they were easy to clean up if some got on the floor.
If you're looking for a fun outdoor toy, you should check this one out. It's a great toy!
