There are a lot of little kids in my house so I am always looking for good quality toys for them to play with, and they like the out doors so I wanted something like a sand box for them to play in. I went to the local walmart and looked around, I ended up purchasing a small plastic sand box from Little Tikes for $37, it was usually $44. The box is not very big and will probably only hold two kids that are about 1 to 3 years old. It has been a really fun sand box for my littl three and four year olds to play in even though it is so small they have to take turns. The plastic is very durable and does not crack easily. The box with hold about, I am guessing, 150 pounds of sand or water. There is a lid that comes with this turtle sand box that is nice because you can cover it up so cats, bugs or rain do not get in and ruin your sand, and it is very cute to sit on the grass in your back yard. it is also a good place to store little sand toys and balls and things. Walmart has these cheaper than toys are us too.
