No worries about exposing them to the harsh rays of the sun. the fabulous sandpit comes equipped with a crisp white and blue UV-protected canopy. Your kids will stay happy and cool while at play in this amazing outdoor toy. When not in use, cover the sandpit to keep out debris and animals. We are advocates of managed forests and of preserving the environment and make the sandpits exclusively from FSC Certified Timber. An internal ground sheet keeps the sand in place, permits water drainage and prevents grass and weeds from growing into the sand play area.
