Is The Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Center Worth Buying?
Many parents are finding it increasingly difficult to find toys that provide a more old fashioned style of play for their children. The Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Center is the ideal solution for children aged 2 and up. The center is 26 inches wide and 46 inches long, which means that the table can easily accommodate several children at once. This makes the Step2 play center perfect for when you have a group of children to entertain for a summer’s afternoon.
The detachable legs are not only very helpful for storage, but they also provide an alternative for very small children who may be too short to play comfortably at the table when assembled upright. However, the one downside of the Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Center is also related to the detachable legs. The legs screw directly into the table, and some parents have mentioned that this has led to small leaks at the join. However, a touch of sealant easily rectifies this problem.
The Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Center is definitely better suited to young children. Most parents comment that, as children reach the ages of 9 and up, they slowly begin to lose interest in the Step2 center. However, if you have children younger than this, the Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Center will be an ever present fixture in afternoon playtime.
Although it comes with a number of accessories like bridges and boats, your kids will also probably have fun playing with their other toys using this set as a base. At roughly $100, this should be viewed as a long term investment rather than a flash in the pan toy.
