I wonder if it's because playing with sand is remiscent of days on the beach that does it?
Whatever it is, sandpits are always a big hit with kids and the nice thing about having your own is this - you know what and who's been digging in it.
Here's the blurb and spec' from Argos:
- Made from FSC timber.
- Includes protective overcover and groundsheet to repress weeds.
- Rounded corners for added safety.
- Outdoor use only.
- Also suitable for balls.
- Easy to assemble - some self-assembly required.
- All fixings supplied.
- Size (H)22.6, (W)120, (L)120cm.
- For 18 months and over.
You'll need eight 15kg bags of sand to fill it up and surprise, surprise they're not included in the price, but as Argos have reduced the price of this sandpit from £44.99 down to £22.99 I still think this is a bit of a bargain.
I'm not a fan of bright plastic things so this rather understated wooden version is perfect if you don't want your garden looking some sort of neon-coloured play space from hell.
You can arrange to collect from your local store if they have it in stock, or pay the standard delivery charge of £4.95 and have it delivered to your home.
