I make no secret that Boo loves to play outside, and one of his favourite activities is playing in sand, he will literally play for hours! We had been thinking about getting a sandpit for a little while, and so when Big Game Hunters approached us to see if we’d like to review one for them we had to say yes!
We were sent the Hexagonal Wooden Sandpit to review, it came with very clear step by step instructions and includes the sandpit liner and a polythene cover which acts as a lid.
Mr G and I built it together in approximately 20minutes, we took a minute or two to work out which order the planks attached in, but they just slot together easily! In honesty the hardest part was attaching the top part – and that just involved using a screwdriver! We even had some help from Boo (otherwise it would have been even quicker!!).
We added four 15kg bags of sand (not included), but we actually need quite a lot more as it really does hold loads of sand! Boo wasted no time and jumped straight in to try it out, he liked the ledge on the top so he could sit and take his wellys off before jumping in bare foot! As you can see the sandpit is an ample size for a couple of children or even a Mummy too – I must admit I also climbed in and enjoyed building a castle!

The sand pit is very sturdy, and I believe it will weather well. The lid is easy to pull on/off and works well to keep the sand clean. In my opinion, the sand pit is really stylish, it wouldn’t look out of place even in quite a sophisticated garden. I had been worried that jumping in or out Boo might hurt himself on the edges, but the wood is really smooth, and I was impressed with the overall quality. Priced at £59.99 I think this is a great price, there is so much play value in a sand pit, and I love the fact that it looks fabulous and will almost look better with age!
Big Game Hunters (www.gardengames.co.uk) have over 11 years of experience selling outdoor family entertainment, from Air Hockey to Play Houses (even a Play Castle!!) they really do have an exceptional variety of family outdoor entertainment! So why not do something different this Christmas and invest in some all year round garden fun for the family? Or perhaps even treat someone to an amazing traditional looking sledge to get them dreaming of a White Christmas!
