Still in need of something in the garden to keep the children out of your hair, in the school holidays? Look no further, Amazon are selling the Plum Junior Outdoor Play Sand Pit for £10.27 delivered. This has a RRP of £39.99. Not bad, huh?
Kids love sand, and it’s not always possible to take them to the beach. That’s when something like this is good. Of course, you don’t have to use sand in it, you can turn it into a ball pit. Personally, I think it looks a tad too shallow for that, but fine for sand.
Chuck those little angels some bucket and spades and bring out their creative side, as they build sand sculptures. There’s hours of fun to be had out of this simple garden toy.
I know some people are put off of children’s garden toys as they find them garish looking for their gardens. These Plum sandpits are wooden and a red cedar colour, so are sympathetic to their surroundings.
It comes with a ground sheet, to allow water to drain and to stop weeds growing. You don’t have to worry about sifting out bugs and cat poo either as it comes with a protective cover.
With a twelve month manufacturer’s warranty, you need not be concerned about wood rot or insect damage, as it covers those.
It comes flat packed so you do need to assemble it yourself. They say one adult can do it in thirty minutes, but that will depend on how easy to follow the instructions are.
Sand isn’t included so you do need to buy that separately, but you can buy a bag of play sand in most supermarkets at this time of year.
