    I'm gettin Liam a sit down one for christmas so that he can have a decent amount of sand in it, also with LO2 on the way in a few years they can both play together in it rather than arguing over a table. (They'll probz still argue anyway though lmao)

    I'm getting DS one on a stand so we don't end up with cats mistaking it for a litter tray, hehe. Although, I suppose a cover would take care of that, too...but we're also getting him a sand & water combo.

    We got a table as we figured there would be less sand getting trailed into the house that way. If Harvey was sat in a sandpit then it would be all in his clothes and get all over the place.

    I got Tom a stand up one and I'm really glad I did - he sat in his little friends big on the floor one a couple of weeks ago and the sand made the eczema on the back of his legs flare up horribly. We had to send cream into nursery for him which we've never had to do before.

    Asda do a sand pit for 15 quid which has a little step on the side for them to sit on so their feet are in the sand and bottoms arent. Also has a lid on it. Abigail can also sit on the floor next to it and still reach to play.

    Bella has a table where you can put water in one half ans sand in the other, but for the amount of sand she's thrown on the floor, i'd have just as well got her a sit down one!

    typical isn't it! does the lid of the sand pit stay on when its outside, say if its windy? or do you have to weight it down with something? i want something i can just leave out in the garden the whole time
