Where to buy a childrens sandbox?


Recommended Posts

Anybody knows where I can buy a sandbox in Cebu City? (box containing loose sand for children to play in)

 

I looked in SM and some home store shops but had no luck.

 

Thank you

I'd imagine you could find any number of carpenters to build you one out of lumber for pretty cheap, then source clean sand somewhere.  I've seen a plastic sandbox in the shape of a turtle before, can't remember where but it was obscenely expensive.

Try  dept store toy shops, Robinsons Banilad, Rustas Ayala, Metro Colon.

Garden accessories, Handyman Ayala.

Rubbermaid, internet.

Ayala has toy boutique.

Advertise this sites classifieds for secondhand?

 

Soft mouldable builders sand on bridge twixt Country Mall and BTC (dry it, seive it, wash it)!

Whatever you do, get one with a lid or cover.

Cats love using them overnight as a CR.

I haven't seen one for sale here at all. I think your best bet is to just have one built. A wooden frame would quickly be destroyed by termites, but then, children don't play in a sandbox for many years. Definitely have some sort of cover for cats, but also make sure you aren't creating a haven for spiders or snakes.

I did the BTC toyshop this pm, no joy, only tabletop sand trays!

I have seen larger than average washing up bowls 80+cm (plangana), the best brand begins with a "P" I think?

Or is it an "O"; Orocan maybe?

What about a blowup or otherwise plastic wading pool?

Only if you got the wind to blow them up every few days mate?

I always used to think this is the one thing that a dad has to create with his very own hands..?

 

Boy1: My dad is the best! He built a house!

Boy2: My dad is better than your dad! He built a playground!

Boy3: My dad is even better! He built... eh... he built... an, uh, algorithm!

the one i built for my son was made with walls that were meant to used to make a raised garden area i think there are some pic of it in my gallery .. you may can find something similar in the RP in hardware stores ... you can make it what size you want and repurpose it someday when the kiddo grows up
