Sandpits for children
A Wickey child’s sandpit is the perfect garden play equipment and provides a great deal of fun for the whole family. Choose between sandpits with roof, a sandpit with a playhouse or a simple wooden sandpit. The high-quality wooden sandpits from Wickey can be set up quickly and easily on a sunny afternoon. Put the sand in and the fun begins. Sandcakes, sandcastles, secret tunnels - the sand and water pit becomes an exciting fantasy workshop and your child is the creator!
Sandpit with cover
See the benefits of our Wickey sandpits with lid. Our wooden sand and water pits are characterised by their solid quality and robust design. Unlike plastic sandpits with lid, wooden sandpits are long-lasting and weather resistant. If you buy your own sandbox, you will be able to watch your children from the kitchen window as they play and make as many sandcakes as possible. After playing, a sandpit with cover can easily be closed. In the Wickey webshop you can select a large or small sandpit depending on the size of your garden. Thanks to the wide seat edge, both you and your children can comfortably sit in the sandpit on the bench while playing together. Your children’s friends and neighbour's children will love the sandbox as well! Also, your sandpit will combine fantastically with one of our affordable climbing frames. Here the children can climb, slide and swing with friends.
Wickey sandpits for toddlers and kids are available in different sizes. You can choose the model based on the size of your garden or even on the number of children. That way you will be sure to find the best sandpit for your family`s needs. It makes sense to choose a larger model for families with several children. Or choose a playhouse with sandpit. Every builder has enough space for their sandcastle! A sandpit with canopy protects your little ones in the sunshine and also offers shelter during a rain shower.
A sandpit with lid offers a particularly good solution to keep the sand clean. The comfortable benches with backrest are simply folded inwards and turn the sandpit into a box with a hinged lid. Cats, birds and other animals therefore have no opportunity to do their business in the sand and you spare yourself the tedious cleaning. By the way: a wooden swing set next to the sandpit will turn your garden into the children's favourite playground.
Accessories for the sandpit
Building sandcastles in the garden is great, but playing catch and jumping around is also fun. In our online shop you will not only find cheap sandpits for sale but you can purchase accessories like corner protectors, as well. Those make sure that the little ones can romp in and around the Wickey sandpit for babies and kids safely and without getting hurt. The green plastic corner caps fit snuggly on all the corners and are conveniently available in a set of four. To protect your children's sandbox from roots and worms in the sand, you can also order a sandpit liner. The weed control fabric is available in various sizes and makes sure that your kids can play in the sand without any worries.
Our suggestion: we have great swing and slide sets in our product range for even more enjoyment when playing outside. You can design your own unique swing with amazing swing seats from Wickey.
