Buying Guide

Sandboxes! Simple wooden frames filled with tiny grains of eroded rocks and shells that contain countless hours of laughter and fun, for little brains with imaginations running amok.

And of course, they are also the first sowing ground for seeds of teamwork and social skills. The experiences that your little munchkins get while digging into those innocuous-looking mounds of sand are incomparable.

Sadly, that doesn’t make shopping for these simple play boxes any easier. Most newbie parents are left dizzied at the sheer number of sizes, designs and features available in large sandboxes with cover.

If you are one of those parents, then here’s a little help to get you started.

What type of sandbox would your kids (or you) prefer? From barebones wooden frames with a tarp rolled over it for cover, to exquisite looking sandboxes with rollaway castles, your options are unlimited.

It is important to know beforehand what you are willing to spend for it and the kind of features you are looking for.

The most desirable features are a sturdy frame that doesn’t peel, warp or split, a heavy duty cover, a weed block in the base and some seating space for the kids, either on the sides or in the corners.

Vanity features like an elevated canopy, cup holders on the sides and storage drawers look good in advertisements.

But sand and kids tend to be a messy affair and these are not really going to do much to improve playtime.

Shoppers on a tight budget can opt for premade plastic sandboxes with covers. These are cheap and don’t warp either. But the cheaper ones tend to be flimsier than wooden sandboxes.

The last thing you need is the plastic lid blowing off in a wee bit of gust and the sandbox getting flooded, or doubling up as a litterbox for wandering critters. Even worse, it may end up as a resting place for the legless variety. Yikes!

Wood is the gold standard in sandboxes, with cedar being the most obvious choice. The only drawback is that it’s not pressure treated and tends to splinter occasionally.

If you willing to loosen the purse strings a little, you can get a sandbox made of pressure treated lumber. Just ensure that you are aware of the chemicals used to treat the wood. You don’t want anything toxic to leech out into the sand.

A quick search on the internet will reveal hundreds of websites with DIY plans and videos to build your own sandboxes. The idea certainly seems appealing mind you. You can customize everything to your liking. The depth, the design, the cover. But it’s a time, labor and money-intensive woodworking project. One that you are better off not undertaking unless you have the expertise to complete. It’s always safer to buy one off the shelves, especially because there’s no dearth of options to choose from.
