4/5 Lucy 'I very happy with this hippo for my granddaughter first swim pool'
5/5 AV 'Great purchase. My daughter loves going in here when I'm in the garden. Only slight snag is that the lid could be a little more secure.'
1/5 Domdom 'Placed a order online to collect from store. When collecting the sand pit it didn’t come in a box and had no protective wrapping and was all completely scratched especially the top. Which isn’t ideal as it was a gift.'
4/5 Wenz 'Good fun for children. Good colour and design. It's good there is a lid.'

5/5 Danielle 'It’s a good buy good for all types of weather'

1/5 Vicky 'Sent it straight back. Eyes coming off, sides split, poor quality. Bought a little tikes one far better and will last.'

4/5 Jaydee 'Bought for our granddaughter. She's enjoyed playing with it - one of our most popular toys! It seems reasonably sturdy . You'd probably need a larger sandpit for children over toddler age.'
4/5 Rebecca 'My little boy loves it its not to high for him to climb into and not to low for him to fall out of the lid fits just on top to stop anything form getting in there and the plastic its made from is easy to clean down with hose or jet wash the only thing id change would be the eyes because as soon as it rained they came off but all in all good value for money'
5/5 Eevee 'This is brilliant if you have a puppy who like swimming/padding. Excellent for dogs, they can’t puncture this.'
5/5 Dad1234 'This was much larger than it looks in the picture and took about 4-5 bags of 15kg sand to fill it up. Our 2 year old loves playing in it, so perfectly suitable for her. You may need a bigger one for older children.'
5/5 BKLS 'Sturdy and durable lid that fits very well on sandpit can keep sand clean and dry even over the rainy and windy night... or week.'
5/5 Peggy 'This product is well worth the money good value Bought for my 2 grandkids 4 and 17 months they love it and play hours with it'

4/5 Didi 'Hello, I orderd this for my grandson.thaught he would love it.and he did. the only thing was when it arrived the top was scuffed .due to it not having any wrapping on. but still would recommend it.a great buy and a great price. thankyou.'
5/5 Suzanne 'Great for little ones. Not massive so better for under 5’s I’d say. They played for hours and loved it. The lid means that the sand is also kept dry and clean too.'
5/5 Chas 'Just what we wanted for grandson in the garden. Only thing was lid could not be secured at end of play so we put luggage belt around it so lid would not fly away in wind and stops cats getting into sand. Grandson loves it and when belted it is sturdy enough to let him sit and stand on lid as little kids always do. Would recommended it. Bought play sand with it and only put one bag in as the more in the more is getting thrown out by grandson his favourite toy at our house. Quick delivery too.'
5/5 Farmersdoll 'Bought for my 11month old son who loves it, ideal size for him to splash about (used as a paddling pool) he can safely step in and out on his own. Cute design.'
5/5 James123 'Great quality and the kids and dog love it. Definitely would recommend for the hot season.'
5/5 Zoe 'My boy loves his new sand pit, it’s a great size and great quality. Love the way it has a lid.'
5/5 B62 'My 1 yr old Grandson loved this Hippo. Used as a paddling pool just right size for him to sit in with bath toys. He loved sitting on the lid when left on the grass. Easy to empty as not too big & I am sure he’ll enjoy later on in the year when it’s full of sand. Excellent for having fun'
5/5 DavidBCK 'We brought this for our 6 month old baby. It's just the right size, not overbearing for her but plenty of room for her to move her legs and arms around. Once she is crawling they'll still be enough room for her to have a little wonder about.'
4/5 Srh 'Smaller in overall size than expected, but this is deep and holds two bags of sand well. Ideal for first sandpit. Hippo it’s self is quite sturdy in design, however the top is flimsy and cracked in the first week of buying. The top blows off in wind and needed something heavy applying to it to keep it on.'
5/5 Jj 'Just what we needed to bathe the puppy'
4/5 Dogllover 'We brought this to use as a small poor for our small dogs and they love it can cover it up at night stopping all the insects getting in and use the water when finish to water the plants.'
5/5 BigRich 'Granddaughter loved it spent all day playing and cried her face off when it was time to go in to bed..'
4/5 Emma 'Good for baby sensory play as well as sand.'
5/5 Toelle 'I bought this for my five year old grandson and he loves it. We fill it with water and he puts his pirate ships and sea creatures in it for role play. He also likes to use it for sand play too. Overall it’s a nice toy for active imaginations.'

5/5 CALB 'This is a great little sandpit, perfect for my 5 month old baby to dip her toes in the sand! I love the colour and design but as others have stated, on a windy day the lid could fly off. It is a good size and the price was really reasonable. I also purchased the sand along with it too on the home delivery service. Very happy customer.'

5/5 Forest21 'My two year old absolutely loves his new sand pit. He can easily open it up and get in and out of it. Definitely worth the money. Think we’ll probably empty it and store in the shed over winter as I can see the lid will most likely blow off. Maybe something to look into for future designs; a way to lock the lid down. Would definitely recommend, great price and size for a toddler for hours and hours of fun.'
5/5 Chrissie 'Good hit with my grandson, seems very sturdy but the eyes came off after the first rain shower.'
4/5 Jewells 'Excellent for my granddaughter and lovely colour'
5/5 Maddie 'Good size for my 3 year old. Looks nice. We do have to put something heavy on top of the lid when its windy to keep it in place. Good value'
4/5 Louie 'Nice size not to big and kids like it only down side is the lid is not very secure even with bricks on it'

5/5 Luz 'Really good value. They look good and are comfortable.'
5/5 Demmi 'Really handy as she loves the sand'
5/5 Fran197 'Our 4 children love this, it's versatile and easy to clean. We use it as a sand pit, paddling pool and ball park. Our kids are all just walking so wobble everywhere, they need stimulating and find this a great source of fun.'
5/5 Layton 'My children love it really good'
5/5 Sophie98 'Bought this for my 8 month old son, he loves it, just the right size for him and also when he’s a little older.. safe for smal children, also not too big to ensure in the home! (When the weathers rubbish)'
5/5 Laurenpalmer94 'While the sun has been out, my little boy has been playing in his sand pit with his sand toys and he loves it!'
5/5 Kpheard 'Bought this for a birthday present. Was disappointed there was no protective packaging. The item was badly scratched and looks second hand. Also the lid does not fit properly so water will easily get into the sand.'
3/5 Petal 'Disappointed this didnt arrive in a box some bad scrappes so dissapointed as this was for my baby granddaughters 1st birthday present !'
2/5 Inca 'My puppy loves this sand pit it stops him digging up the garden'
5/5 Sam 'Brought as a birthday present for our niece. Was shocked that there was no packaging whatsoever so the lid was scuffed in multiple places. The first one had a crack in it and had to be returned. The store helpfully reserved another at another store and this one wasn’t as scuffed but still marked on the lid because of not having any packaging. Whilst it works as a toy for a toddler, not overly impressed at the quality due to the reasons mentioned above.'
4/5 Penny15 'Love the design. Bigger than expected. Quite deep. Will need three or four bags of sand. Some marks which seem to be due to moulding process but hopefully won't affect use. Overall love it and so will my grandson.'
5/5 Chris 'When kept outdoors, it's closure comes off on its own, even with the wind. It needs a heavy item to be placed on top so that it its in place. Should have come with clips to secure lid tight.'
5/5 TEATREE 'I bought this for my great granddaughters 1st birthday this September. Ordered and delivered by Argos in a few hrs. Just right size for toddler. I also had the child's play sand one bag which was plenty. Very pleased with purchase as you can leave it outside with hippo top on so nothing gets in.'
5/5 Bigmama 'Great little sand pit. Plenty of space to play with you diggers and easy to move around garden. It has the added bonus of coming with a lid so sand it kept clean.'
