homesok I ordered this late as a Christmas gift. It is a combination water and sandbox play table. It arrived on time. She loved it. It will provide hours of fun and entertainment.
MommyTesters We were pretty excited to find this one of our favorite stores last week! This table definitely has some nice ugrades from previous years.The biggest pro is that you have the ability to cover either the sand or water which keeps your table from becoming sand muck city and then having to explain to your child that it takes time for sand to dry!The toys are entertaining and my daughter has been sending all her little toy people down the waterslide with enthusiasm. Her favorite item is the shark jug which can sprinkle water on the sand or make a waterfall. I was a bit skeptical about the construction at first - this table is not as sturdily built as the Naturally Playful Sand & Water Activity Table which we also own and love. The legs are only half legs and between the sand and water it is a lot of weight to support. Also the tower that holds the toys is similarly constructed. I have noticed that Step2 is doing this on more products and while I have not had an actual problem with something coming apart or collapsing they just don't feel very sturdy to an adult. That aside this table is a fantastic entertainment center for small children and 2-3 kids can play at a time. Step2 delivers on the entertainment factor for this item and it will be going with us on weekend vacations during the summer. If you want to make lots of friends on vacation bring one of these to the kiddy pool!
TCMom While I am not normally a fan of combining sand and water the new innovative cover for the sand keeps them separate which makes the water play even more fun and is a very attractive option. My old Step2 water table did not have a plug and this is a huge improvement. Outside I just unplug and water the grass, inside I put a pitcher underneath for easy cleanup! Comes with great accessories my kids love it!

Aunt Shell I purchased this product for my home day care. It's sturdy. It's fun. The children love playing in the sand and water. It's great for small children. Because of the size, I only allow two children at a time to play with it. The children have learned to share and take turns. The only problem with it, is that it is not tall enough for children over 5 years old. Other than that it's a great product to purchase.
BusyMom Great product! My daughters are 5 and 1 and both of them love this product. It's big enough for both of them to play together or by themselves. We have only used water so far, we haven't tried the sand yet since we have only had about a month. The only thing that I was a little disappointed with was the legs. I wish that they would be molded plastic instead of just plastic legs that snaps in. Otherwise a great product.
Kerri My mom got this for my daughter and she loves it. I like the drain plug and the cover. The only complaint I have is the water wheel/slide. It constantly falls apart. My daughter really likes using both sides of the toy and I like that I can cover one up so the other side doesn't get ruined.
Mama with an always busy child!!! My daughter has a great time with this table. I got it for her 4th birthday. I mostly use water in it since it's hot outside but I do change out the water with rainbow dyed rice occasionally! The only bad thing about this table is the water wheel is in pieces. U have to put it together but it's not permanent. I CONSTANTLY have to put it back together and it gets annoying quick! Other than that it's a great time alone or in a group.
My Babies Mama I bought this for my nearly 2 year old son. I looked into many different sand & water tables & chose this one because of the "extras". The tower thing that you pour water through, doesn't fit together properly and continues to come apart, AND I would think that since the table is for BOTH sand & water, that you would be able to pour either one through it, but you can't, the sand just cloggs it up(and not because it was wet either)
Mom of Two Our niece loves the Splash n Scoop. She's 1 and enjoys standing at the table, splashing, pushing the toys around and enjoying her mom play with the taller features. My sister had the table set up almost immediately after we all left the birthday party, so it was very quick/easy to assemble. Too bad I didn't buy this particular water table for us when our oldest was little!
