Product overview

Long afternoons hanging out in the sandpit is what being a kid is all about. And what better way to keep them happy than by giving them one of their very own.

Sandpits are great for developing motor skills and encouraging creativity; digging, building, making shapes and whatever else kids can dream up. This smaller model will fit easily in any backyard and is the perfect size for one or two kids to hang out.

Once the kids are done playing, the seats cleverly fold out into a solid lid to cover the sand, helping to keep animals, debris and rain out.

Finished with a clear, water-based urethane, it’ll last the kids for years without rotting or cracking, and is super easy to keep clean. The hinges and screws are made of durable zinc-plated steel to reduce corrosion. The wooden frame has an open bottom but comes with a ground cover to stop moisture or weeds getting into the sand.

Give your kids a healthy gift that will keep them entertained for years. Order yours today.

• Solid wooden frame
• Two bench seats
• Solid lid to help keep sand clean and dry
• Waterproof bottom lining
• Safe, non-toxic materials (SGS, TUV and EN71 compliant)
• Easy to assemble
• 1 Year warranty

Dimensions: 98 x 98 x 20cm

q: Is the sandpit with the children sitting in it 1m x 1m. Or is this a bigger sandpit.

q: Hi, with the lid down does it keep the sand dry in the rain? The slats seem to have gabs. Thanks
a: No, it's more to keep animals out. You could add a tarp pretty easily, although you can build better castles with damp sand......

Poor quality

After 12 months, the sandpit was useless. Rusted screws everywhere, wood has splitt. Disappointing.

Accurate description of the sand pit

It is great for my 2 year old grandson, he is getting a lot of pleasure from playing in it.I put it together with the help of one of my daughters before my husband had chance to. The only critique would be that the 2 of the holes didn't line up and I had to re-drill them. But not a biggie.

The sandpit really suits the purpose for its purchase. I have a cat enclosure and have this is used by the cats as a tidy litter tray. It was quickly put together and has proved to be a success. Everything is positive.

I purchased one of the sandpits for my grandchildren. Absolute waste of money - be lucky if my newborn grand daughter would be able to fit in it let alone a toddler and their toys. Definitely would discourage buying this product.

Great little sandpit

over 2 years ago


This was pretty simple to construct and looks smart in the garden. The two lid pieces don't quite sit flush so quite a lot of rain leaks in if it's not covered so we need to invest in a little tarp to cover it. Otherwise a great addition to our outdoor space!

Dear Friends I found that the wooden sandpit from the Trade Tested is reliable quick solution to entertain kids to play with sand in the garden while you do your gardening or do it yourself projects. I would like to give 80/100 rating due to the accuracy of square and size. The quality of materials and cost is 100/100. Hope this will help you to decide, the squareness can be fixed with your handyman skills. Best Regards Wilson

Bought this as a Christmas present for our grandchildren (4 and 20 months)and they love it. Had it delivered direct to them which worked well. Their father had no problem putting it together, and likes the fact that the seats become a cover as they have a cat that likes sandpits!

Kids just love playing in it. It stays clean and protected from pests and pets.

What kid doesn't enjoy playing with their toys in a sand pit, their imagination is amazing to observe. The whole sandpit has been amazingly structured for little ones and it looks great in the backyard as well. I love the fact that pets/pests cannot get into it when it's covered after use.

Because with the fold down top the cats in the street can't use it as a their toilet. Excellent value and easy to assemble. Should have brought the bigger one for my 3 grandchildren as this is a bit small for all 3. They love their new sandpit.
