There's no timing about this product that isn't great. Your kids are going to be so happy with this toy. If you're like me you worry about your kids in the sun. Having lived all over the country, one thing about this toy stands out. The protecton from the sun. We've had other sand tables before. My children didn't play in then very often because the sand would get super hot, or they would paying in it. That's no longer an issue. They can SAFELY play with this toy as long as they'd like. The sand stays pretty cool and the kids have the protection from the sun we ALL enjoy. The table holds quite a bit of sand, we've made two or 3 decent sandcastles in there at once. It's the perfect height for kids 6 and under. Of course bigger kids (like my ten year old) can still have fun buy taking a knee to play. This toy is a hit with parents when they visit and a favorite of the kids who come.
