All Aboard for some Fun with the Step2 Dockside Climber and Sandbox (Product Review and Giveaway)

 We are always looking for fun toys and my little ones were very excited to help with this review. The day we received it I opened the door and my kids were excited by finding 2 BIG boxes on our front porch. They immediately kept asking what was in the box. I brought it in and turned it around and they saw the picture on the box and literally started jumping up and down with excitement! They ship the items in their orginal box so they item is displayed on the outside.

We brought both boxes in and took them to our back patio to begin assembling it.

We first began by taking all the pieces out and laying them on the floor.


Next we took out the instruction to see where we should start. My oldest 2 children were invited to help put this item together. I would like to mention there are a few screws that will need be screwed in and we used a screw gun for some of them till our battery ran out. Just makes the process a bit faster.



We started by attaching the Red Slide and Green Ladder to the platform and side wall. Super easy with just a few screws. My kids were excited as I let them help with the screw gun and holding the pieces. Next we attached the red steering wheel to the front of the boat, then attached the platform to the blue boat that you see.



Next we attached the back wall and placed the top on the sandbox. Last but not least, We attaced 2 stickers and the canopy. The canopy we received would not stay in the sections of the wall. I contacted Step2 and stated my problem and they were a HUGE help. They immediately asked me the problem and fixed it by sending us a brand new canopy which works perfect. Wonderful customer service and super fast shipping.

As you can see in the picture above, they are very proud of it!



Our baby girl was taking a nap during the assembly process. We were excited to show her when she woke up and boy was she excited!! She didn't know where to go first.

The sandbox of course is made to put sand in it. Well, I homeschool and have the kids home with me all the time. We live in Florida and rain showers can pop up at anytime. I decided I wanted to keep this on our patio, which is screened in with windows and tiled floor. The sand would be way to big of a mess for this room, so I had to brainstorm. I was going to go buy the plastic play balls to place in it by my kids talked me out of it. They like it with nothing in it all. They sit on the inside and pretend they are driving the boat. Just another thought if you decide to purchase this item and don't want to use the sand. If I would have placed this item outside then we definately would have put sand in the inside. It comes with a cover to place over the boat so no need to worry about the sand on the inside.

My kids are ages 8, 6 and 16 months. It states recommended age is 1.5 - 5 years old. As you see 2 of my children are over this age but still have a blast with the item. This is just to give you a rough idea of the ages that it would work best for. My son who is 8 is a bit big for it but still can get into the mix with the girls while playing on it.

We have also created a video and invite you to watch it as well.
