This is a simple sand table that can be filled with either sand or water and comes top of this list. It is made from high-quality plastic and can hold an impressive 40 lbs of sand. Also, it sits at just the perfect height that allows toddlers to dig in and has plenty of room for several kids to play together.

As you know, accessories are everything a kid needs to have their creativity running wild, and this sand table comes with two sand rakes, two shovels, and a bucket. As a bonus, the lid has a molded roadway providing a whole new play when your little one gets bored of playing with sand. We also love that it comes with a lid to prevent the sand from getting contaminated or water entering when it rains.

Step2 Naturally Playful table is suitable for kids aged between 2 to 5 years.


  • Very sturdy
  • Easy to assemble
  • High quality and durable construction
  • Spacious; allows a few kids to play at once
  • It comes with a lid to keep out debris, contaminants, bugs, and rainwater

This is one unique and adorable sand table design! Shaped just like a crab with friendly eyes and shovel holders that look like the crab’s claws. It is designed to hold up to 25 lbs of sand, although you can also use other materials, such as gravel or even water. But be warned! It doesn’t have a drainage plug in case you are thinking about adding water.

It comes with a lid and four accessories, including two tables and two buckets. It sits pretty low, so small toddlers, say, 1 and 2-year-olds are able to reach in, but it can be used by toddlers up to 6 years old, according to the manufacturer.


  • Very cute design
  • Sturdy
  • Height is great for small toddlers
  • Easy assembly


  • Accessories are too few you might need to buy more
  • Not large, may only allow room for two kids

This one is not a table, but it’s a fantastic sandbox. It has molded seats on all four corners and large enough room to hold up to 200 lbs of sand! Imagine all the treasures you would bury in there for your little one to dig out. You will also love the heavy lid it comes with to keep the sand clean and free of critters or water during the rainy seasons.

Step2-Play-Store-Sandbox-Cover is suitable for both indoor and outdoor play, and putting a tarp underneath will help keep the sand from ruining your clean floors. It also acts as spacious storage for your kid’s toys and other accessories with a domed lid. Do note that it doesn’t come with sand or toys.


  • The heavy lid remains intact against winds and rain
  • No assembly needed
  • Has a sitting area of kids as they play
  • Large capacity


  • Not spacious enough to have four kids inside, but some can crouch from outside

This is yet another sandbox, but it’s from Little tikes; an old and trusted brand. No kid would resist getting inside this cute toy turtle with its cute bulging and inviting eyes. It offers two seats for your kids as they play, which is an improvement from the older version.

For fun, you can add sand, water, gravel, or any other materials, and it can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can hold 150 lbs of sand. Unfortunately, you would have to buy all the materials and accessories your kids would need to play with it. The low height and size make it ideal for small toddlers, although it’s marketed as suitable for kids up to 6 years old. Check out all fun activities for pre-school teens


  • Has a cute design
  • It comes with a lid to keep out water, debris, bugs, and pets


  • Customers complain it feels flimsy, not like the older model

5. American Plastic Toys Sand Table

This is one of the most colorful of all sand tables and stands out with its blue table and red legs. 

It’s not really large, so it doesn’t take much space, and the height is perfect for 2-year-olds and up to 6 years. It’s also lightweight and easy for anyone to set up. With a holding capacity of up to 50 lbs of sand, this table allows your kids to get creative building sandcastles and sand molds.

The sand table comes with a tarp instead of an actual lid, so it’s definitely not airtight and might allow some rainwater to leak in. However, the included elastic bands that secure the tarp will help keep pets, debris, and bugs out.


  • It can be used with sand or water or as a toddler’s table
  • Even with sand, it is light enough for most adults to move around


  • It is light and can be pushed around by toddlers
  • The tarp caves in when it’s rained on. You might need to add a hard-surface lid on top
