I must say this product looks amazing when completed, and my 20 month year old little boy will not come out of it. He even peaks his head out of our upstairs window and likes to look and point at his new Pirate Sandbox.

Overall I give the product a 4 out of 5 Stars, but you can make it a perfect 5 with just a little more effort from your local hardware store. The finished product looks exactly like the picture, yes, it's really that nice looking. However, you should note that it does not come with a floor, instead they give you a very heavy gauge plastic bottom. I would estimate the thickness of the plastic to be the equivalent of two contractor bags.

The actual assembly was fairly painless, you need to place all the wooden pieces with the numbers facing up outside in the backyard (you may have trouble getting the fully assembled product through a door). I would suggest that you use a very high quality ratchet screw driver, my absolute favorite is the Ivy Classic. You should use a good quality Phillips head and matching hex in the ratcheting screw driver. Following the assembly instructions was quite easy, but time consuming, you want everything tight but not over tightened, otherwise you'll risk cracking. Be sure to make sure all pieces have the matching bolts on the opposite side, so you can tighten properly.

My item came with a flag post top that's screw was to short, so I had to drill a 3/4" hole in the cross beam about 1/3" deep. This was the only real mishap with the parts received, the package did arrive in decent condition.

Now, the fun part, that can turn this almost into a real boat that can last for many years to come.

UPDATE!:

Ok, it's been 3 years now since we have had this. Since my last review, I have had to completely paint over all the cute pictures. The wood stain fades, and needs to be stained annually to maintain the wood however, how the heck are you to do this with the pictures (which fade as well). After having this for three years and watching it weather worse and worse over the years, I decided just to buy some high gloss exterior paint, in a wood colored brown, and paint the boat parts. Everything else, since it's colored solid, can be repainted and touches up fine.

After the first year, we began to store it in the garage during the winter months. Not sure how much this helps, and it can be a bit annoying having this large thing sitting around in your garage but, nonetheless, we do it.

The fabric has held up quite well and actually has not faded as much as I would have thought. We have just done away with the sand in it and now just leave it sitting in a mulched playground area. The kids love playing with it even without the sand, so it's not a big deal at all.

As long as you buy this when your child will REALLY love it (between 2 and 4), you'll be able to enjoy the 'real' look of it. Then as they begin to grow out of it, spruce it up a bit, and it will last the remainder.

I purchased this sandbox a year ago, so I have seen it withstand all seasons. We live in Illinois, so has seen some strong winters (almost completely covered in snow at one point). I must say that it is very lovely, and we have had many complements on it. There are a few things though that you should be aware of before purchasing:

1. The net cover is a waste.

At the end of the day, my kids LOVE this sandbox. However, there are a few items I would like to mention. First, when I opened the package the hardware was everywhere! I was missing some pieces that KidKraft is replacing. To complete the build, I used hardware of my own. Also, the rear railings were damaged. I am hoping KidKraft sends me the replacements I requested.

It did not take very long to put together. The instructions are decent and each part is numbered. I was disappointed that there is no floor. I am using this sandbox on a patio so I needed to add a floor. I basically did the same thing the other reviewer here did by form fitting some plywood, treating it with waterproofing, and fixing it to the bottom. I also sealed it with silicone. This boat can float now if I so intended!!!

The storage is nice but I didn't find it to be a overabundance of storage like some reviews indicate. The mesh netting is good but the snaps they provide to attach it to the boat are cheap. You may get frustrated installing the net. I extended my floor the length of the sandbox. We have 250lbs of sand in the front of the boat and another 50lbs in the rear under the wheel. I figured my kids were going to get sand in there anyway so why not just fill that part too.

As I said, my kids love this boat and I do as well. We shall see how she holds up. All in all I am pleased and thrilled how much my kids enjoy it. I will post a few pics as well.

First, the customer service was excellent. The original shipment included broken pieces, and KidKraft sent replacements within a few days.

Unfortunately, we returned the product anyway: the quality of the wood is subpar (thin and rough, with splinters), and the milling of the wood was inaccurate (the holes did not align as they should, and some of the parts would not fit together). I cannot imagine this sandbox lasting one winter or summer, let alone years of exposure.

This is the first review I have written, because I feel very disappointed and partly misled by the reviews. The idea is excellent, but the execution is very poor.
