We bought this turtle sandbox for Jacob for his 2nd birthday. He played in it for hours and hours - driving dump trucks, hiding dinosaur bones, setting up battles with his army men, and just digging. Who would have thought we'd still be getting so much use out of it 7 years later! Jenna loves to play in it now. She doesn't drive trucks, hide dinosaur bones, or have army battles...she cooks and makes wonderful sand cakes, cookies, and pies...although her absolute favorite part of playing in the sandbox is being BAREFOOT! She seriously would be barefoot or wear flip-flops 365 days a year if we let her.
