3/5 UnhappyDaddy 'Picked, ordered and arrived, so no problem there. I really expected them to be a little more sturdy. Be sure you pick a spot were it will be staying as if you try to move it , it cracks very easily.'
5/5 Grue 'Good value and hours of play and fun.'
5/5 Beckie 'Absolutely love this item! Price is amazing for the quality and standard of the product. My children absolutely love it. Its perfect and water tight when raining, deep enough for a good amount of sand or water. I use one side for sand and one for water like shown and I love it. Keeps the kids quite for hours, even the older kids love it! I've had two little ones (under 4) and two older children (both 8) in both sides at one time. Honestly couldnt reccomend enough. Best sand pit I've owned! 5star'
5/5 Gem 'Sand and water tray purchased for a 1 year olds birthday . The size in the picture doesnt do it justice , it was a lot bigger than in the picture so well worth the price . Great that you can use both sides and fits together great as a lid . All in all hours of enjoyment has been had for my cousins little boy .'
5/5 CMS 'Great fun and easy to put away'
4/5 Diamond 'Basic sandpit. Holds sand and/or water. One half covers the other but needs tying down to keep in place. Not strong enough to move once you have sand in it - too heavy for the (plastic?). Small children could sit on the edge but it bends under larger children. Its functional and grandchildren were happy with it.'
4/5 Re 'It's OK but when you put them together they don't lock so we have to put something on the top so it doesn't open when not in use.'
5/5 HOGGY 'LOVELY PRODUCT, EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY.'
5/5 Granny 'Perfect sand pit with cover so that local cats dont use it as a litter tray!'

5/5 FrankE 'I brought this item for our Labrador puppy'
4/5 Martnbev 'Fun indoors or outdoors for the kids and can be closed up tidy to pack away, .. only downside was that it don't come in a box so not convenient for a present.'
5/5 Winston 'No the dogs not having a pool I had to give five good reasons why the dog needed a pool !!!! Glad I did he loves it Winston is a medium golden labrador and he fits in it fine Helped cool him down in the hot weather even with him standing in it to cool his paws Quite bulky so would need space to store in the winter but happy puppy'

5/5 Santessa 'I bought this as a paddling pool for my 2 Golden Retrievers. With their long, thick coats they dont enjoy hot weather, but love water. So I now have 2 happy dogs who cool off in the paddling pool and have great fun playing with their toys in the water. Sorry I cannot comment on use with children, but I can only assume they would get as much fun out of this as my dogs. Highly recommended.'
5/5 Gucci 'Really useful to keep a young toddler safe from roaming and able to play happily with balls/toys (totally supervised of course). As an apple shaped design perhaps it could have come in red or green colours.'
4/5 Mario 'Do not try emtiing out when full of water take some out first with a bucket'
5/5 Amelia 'My son really enjoys playing with the shell, we put sand in one side, water in the other and hes happy for along time. We also brought our sand from Argos and some play plastic balls to add to the tray. The shell is excellent value for money, a decent size and really easy to use. We love it.'

5/5 Fefe 'My little one loves this, he's had lots of playing in this. Ordered on line and was ready when I went to collect it'
5/5 Mark 'Good price for two shallow pools / sandpits. Ive used them so my dogs can cool-off in the recent heat: its the perfect size for my collie and Dalmatians. My only issue is that you have to be very careful if you want to empty the water out of them as the plastic is quite brittle and mine cracked under the weight of the water as I tried to tilt it. Its still useable so Im ok, and will be more careful next time!'
4/5 Lozzz31 'Bought this for the dog as he ripped the soft vinyl one apart with his claws . He seems to like it and it's still in one piece so no complaints. Good price too!'
5/5 HH 'Very sturdy and big, a great buy!'
5/5 Melon 'I thought it might fit together like a shell but not a problem. As long as my grandchildren like it that's all that matters.'
3/5 Julie 'I bought mine for my dog in the hot weather has an ordinary paddling pool their claws go through these are quite tough well worth the money'
5/5 Gran 'Good fun, plain, simple, safe design fill it up watch em play'
5/5 Shannon 'Very fun for the children gets them active'
5/5 Pickle 'I got this paddling pool for my dog to play in and he loves it, We had previously bought an inflatable one which lasted less than an hour, but this is sturdy, and as there are two sides, he has two pools! Very happy dog, thank you :)'
5/5 JB 'This is a great idea as a sand pit you have a lid or use the lid as paddling pool very sturdy excellent value'
5/5 Trulycapricorn 'Great value and fun for my 3 year old , bigger than expected too. As i dont have grass just stones out the back i needed hard plastic as others will just puncture so this is perfect. Quick to fill and empty'
5/5 LyzzyT 'Really sturdy sand and water pits. Although I actually use them as duck ponds and theyre very good quality and last for ages even though theyre outside in all weathers.'
5/5 Fk 'Ideal for tortoise use !'
5/5 Ann 'Good value for money my 2 year old enjoy hours of fun play one as a pool and other for sandpit. As for quailty not sure only had it a few weeks hoping it last another summer'
4/5 Kevin 'The shell has developed cracks in 2 or 3 places round the rim'
2/5 Baldrick 'Great pool, better than the description as it doesn't mention that you get 2 identical pools, one to use as a pool, the other as a lid, or you could use both as pools. Really, really good value.'
5/5 WeeTFife 'Bought this for our wee dog that loves to dig. Ideal. However: ## make sure the lid is matched up in all areas or you could end up with a sandpit full of slugs and other beasties. ## do not move it when it has sand in it or it'll split!'
4/5 Warren 'Bought this for the grandchildren over the summer months and what a smash it has been with them (1-3-5-) they love the sand pit a bit messy but thats that and the water part is great too'
5/5 Caz 'My granddaughter loved it'
4/5 BJ 'I bought this for my dogs to help keep them cool. The construction is robust and sturdy and they didn't even let me finish putting water in before they were playing in it. In essence we got 2 for the price of one as we only need to use one half at a time.'
5/5 Annie137 'This is great for use as a sand pit. The other half makes a good lid to stop cats from making their mess in it. You will need to tie the top down in windy weather though. We used 3 ribbons.'
4/5 David 'It is well priced, a good size and clever (the waterpit is the lid for the samd pit). There are locating dimples on the base and lid for alignment. However the material is quite light so you'll need to put a weight on top to prevent the wind taking it off. Also, the lid rim has wells around it, so rainwater will collect in these. These issues are extremely minor and easy to take off. My kids love it and at this price, cheaper than buying a new cover for their old sandpit!'
4/5 Monday 'Brilliant idea that lid can become water pit when not needed as a lid! I was impressed by the large size which I couldn't really visualise when I placed the order.'
5/5 Kag 'Decent size pool and has been ideal to keep my dog cool'
5/5 Cazza 'Wonderful garden beach and paddling pool for my grand daughter'
5/5 Tim 'I dont have any dis or donts'

5/5 Charlongo 'Very good idea. Nice size. Good quality.'
5/5 Tel 'Bought this as temps were due to rise and I have 3 dogs. Product is superb with only one exception: Found out the dogs hate getting wet so as far as getting in is a no, no at the moment. No issues with the product as appears strong and it comes in 2 parts is ideal.'
5/5 Grandad 'Perfect for the little ones, just the right size and not too big to store away for the winter'
5/5 Lili 'Great size and good quality even I went in , my toddler says mummy pool , and can fit both of us in one pool'
5/5 Jjandmummy 'Totally perfect for what we wanted it for. Easy to clean (especially when puppy has dug half the garden and needs to wash the mud off!). Fab size (puppy is half husky!). Brilliant and very easy to separate and reassemble'
5/5 Dib 'I brought two for the grandchildren does the job they are happy'
5/5 Kel 'Only bought them for the dogs because of this heat wave we are having. The youngest loves it ! She will play in it all day if i let her. The eldest will just sit and relax ! Me, i like to take my kindle and just soak my feet in it whilst reading a good book'
5/5 Den 'I found this item very light and I was able to move it around quite easily.'
5/5 Kettlesone 'Well worth its money as bought on offer.'
5/5 MNV 'The two halves can be used separately, so were only using one at a time . We part fill it and let the dog go in and out as she likes in the hot weather.'
5/5 Dennymac 'Great paddling pool for puppies and can be sand pit too. Brilliant'
5/5 Kay 'Kids love it! Easy to clean than a blow up pool. Just wished it was round or square shape and if they had other colours other than just pink and blue. Can cover the sand pit too. Overall, very good!'
4/5 MrsW 'I bought this for my mini poodle to cool himself on hot summer days and he loves it! I enjoy soaking my feet in it as I play fetch with him. Ive stored the other half for the children of friends when they visit.'
5/5 Melissa 'Kids absolutely love playing with this, hours & hours of fun :)'
5/5 Grandmother 'Unfortunately when I received sand and water pit it had quite a few dingoes in it, other than the shell shape. Returned and got another, it was damaged also. As this was a present I did not accept either in this condition, so got a refund'
5/5 Zia 'Good quality, well made and good value for money, perfect size paddling pool for my puppy to keep him cool in the summer.'
4/5 Yonnie 'Picked pool up, took home and filled only to find a crack in the side. Checked the other half and that was the same. Poor quality. Do not recommend.'
2/5 Silvia 'My kid's have so much fun, they really enjoying!'
5/5 Kazza 'Paddling pool for dogs brilliant as its made of plastic'
5/5 Steve 'Excellent value for money'
1/5 ScottB 'Bought this clam shell pool and pit this year as sold out last. And it is perfect- for my dogs - fill the shells with water and place on the grass to watch them having lots of fun as they dip their toys and their bodies into the pools on a hot day... well recommended. Sturdy strong and just what the doggies wanted a big 5star thumbs up!'
5/5 Jane 'This sand pit is wonderful; sturdy yet light-weight, perfect size for my 2 year-old grandson who absolutelg loves it, and has an easily detachable lid to keep animals and rain off when not in use. Terrific value too. Highly recommended.'
