I purchased the crab hourglass sifter and funnel on clearance at Toys R Us for about $5-$6. Before I opened it I read the reviews on Amazon. Some did not seem to like the item. I was apprehensive. But my husband and I decided to keep it.

Today we took our kiddos to the beach. Our son is 10 and our daughter is 2. They both LOVED this toy despite the huge age difference. I recall one review saying this toy is boring. We would totally disagree with that statement. My kids were drawn to the item right away even though we had a whole bunch of new beach toys for them. I watched my kids do several neat things with the item. My son figured out how to use it like a tornado tube. He liked watching the funnel he could create in the water. He also packed sand into one end, and used it as a mold for the turrets on his sand castle. My kids laughed and played as my son popped one cover off and gave his sister a "shower" as the water slowly trickled on the baby's head. They ran around chasing each other and having a GREAT time. The baby used it to transport water and loved watching the water drip down and collect. It looked bubbly and neat. So glad we added it to our collection.

Also would like to add, our covers popped on tight and had an airtight seal. The covers were hard to pull off, little ones may need assisstance. We also purchased The Ice Cream Beach set and the Cupcake Beach set. All of these toys are made by Melissa and Doug Toys. We also rate the other sets we purchased with 5 stars as well. A GREAT line of unique and fun beach toys.

We got this hourglass sifter/funnel this past summer and it has been a very popular toy at the beach. It is very durable and we love that you can use it for both water and sand. The kids (ages ranging from 3-7) use it at home as well in the summertime. It's been in the pool as a water funnel and in the sandbox as a sand funnel. The top and bottom snap on easily and it does stay closed while the kids are playing with it. We've never had a problem with it popping open. We think it is a very fun, durable, and unique toy and it gets plenty of use!

It's basically a large plastic funnel or hourglass. It's quite sturdy and holds up when tossed around and dropped. I love how my toddler finds great joy in such a simple toy. It's great for sparking his creativity and holds his attention when he plays at the beach.

my 18month old absolutely loves this toy in the bath. he loves filling it with water and putting other items in it and watching them bob up and down as the water filters through. also likes talking in to it to make funny sounds it is big as others have said but we find that a bonus - even with his little hands it is not problem to hold etc. he uses the utensils from the M&D seaside baking kit to fill it up etc. Not sure how it will work in the sand - waiting for the weather to warm up to find out.

Got this for my 3-year-old son for Christmas. Every time we head out to the beach, he grabs it to bring along. He loves watching the sand fall through the hourglass, and then when that gets old, he fills it with water. It was larger than I expected. Very fun, unique toy.

Once again, the brand stands up to its name. This toy started out being used in the bathtub, extended to the kitchen (where I added dried peas), and ended up in the sandbox! Very versatile and durable, it delighted my grandson from infanthood thru to toddlerhood. I expect it stay in the sandbox for a long time.

I love Melissa & Doug toys and have bought them often! This one arrived today, and although it won't work for my original purpose, I still gave it 5 stars because of its obvious quality. Once a week I work in a nursery for children ages 18 months to 3 years, and we needed a new activity that would keep their attention for more than a few minutes. I filled a large, clear rectangular tub with dry beans and various sizes of funnels, scoops, and containers--something akin to an indoor sandbox. Alas, the narrowest point of this plastic hourglass funnel toy only measures 5/8" diameter on the inside (7/8" measuring across the narrowest spot on the outside), and the dry pinto beans would not run smoothly through it. They will go through a few at a time, but putting in a scoop or two caused a bottleneck that stopped the flow. I'll save it for the beach with my grand kids--I'm sure it will work great with dry sand or water. When I first saw the picture, I wondered if there were clear plastic plates inside each half, but that is a reflection you're seeing. It's just open space inside. The blue heavy-plastic hourglass has fish shapes and wavy lines molded on the outside to make it look like the ocean. The sturdy plastic lids on both ends snap on securely but are not too hard for little hands to pull off without help. Kudos to this manufacturer for making toys that actually last!

Nice size to use for many different things.
Fun in the sand box or with split peas. It will be in our bag for the beach!
We put a few small marbles in it first and my girls loved watching them spin around then fall through the hole. The lids pop off if dropped so supervision is required if small items are used in it to use the funnel.
I did purchase thinking the lids had holes for sifting sand but they are solid lids. I may drill holes where the recessed yellow dots are.

Pros:
Nice size for toddler
Seems durable
Open ended use, beach, tub, sand table etc
Good price

Cons:
No holes for a sifter top
The lid is either too hard or not easy enough for toddlers. (Meaning they can't open and close on their own but it's not tight enough to seal something small enough for the funnel inside that wouldn't become a choking hazard if dropped and the lid popped off)

This would be a great toy if the lid was threaded so a parent could either have the lid on securely with small items or off for sand pouring fun.
Over all it's a nice sturdy toy for the price.
I am going to buy 2 more one to drill holes for sifting lids and another I'm going to put marbles in and superglue the tops on.
