Inspired by the Sea Turtle Conservancy, Little Tikes decided to celebrate the 33rd Anniversary of the Sea Turtle Sandbox by partnering with the Conservancy to help spread the work and raise awareness about the worldwide threats to sea turtles!
As the world's oldest sea turtle research and conservation group The Sea Turtle Conservancy has a mission to save the turtles from extinction by carring out worldwide programs to conserve and recover sea turtle population. Little Tikes have been working closely with the Sea Turtle Conservancy to raise concerns on the sea turtles main threats including climate change, marine debris, oil spills, etc. Little Tikes is also proudly sponsoring the yearly "Tour de Turtles" race and will donate proceeds to the Sea Turtle Conservancy.
“Little Tikes makes products that are safe and durable for kids, and we believe in making this a safe planet for sea turtles as well,” said Rosanne Kubisty, Senior Director of Marketing, Little Tikes. “We want to make sure that turtles grow to their adulthood age of 33 years -- so celebrating our product’s 33rd anniversary gives parents the opportunity to educate their kids about sea turtles in a fun way!”
The turtle sandbox lid is a little darker green then the sandbox bottom and is complete with turtle shell details. It's lightweight, easy to cover, and does its purpose keeping the sand free from rain, bugs and other forces of nature!
The "lazy river"
I absolutely love this sandbox! Before receiving this my daughter had been constantly tring to play in the dirt, herself and her clothes would be filthy and I was constantly worring about what she would find digging around. Now she spends the better part of her days playing in her turtle sandbox. I have some piece of mind knowing she's content playing there and she's having a ball! I love that I didn't have to put anything together, and I can always move it to another area of the yard if I decide. I actually only added 50lbs of playsand and that has been working great! There's room for her to sit in it and for me to build her sandcastles, but it's not taking up the entire yard so I'm happy. Before this I would take my daughter to the park to play with sand and I won't like it gets tedious sitting at the park, now I can get yard work done or simply relax and tan while my daughter plays and enjoys herself!
What Baby thinks:
Princess ADORES her turtle sandbox! Her face lit up so big when she first saw it and then once we got sand she got the idea and it was smiles from ear to ear! She really loves the squiring turtles and watching them go around the river, and of course burring them in the sand! She looks content as can be sitting in the sanbox and there's even plenty of room for her sandcastle toys! Playing in the sand is her favorite thing to do now!
