Checklist For Sand Shells For Children

Function
  • Sand shells can be filled with sand as usual, but also with water and serve as a paddling pool.
  • Since it consists of 2 parts (hinged), both sides can also be filled differently. However, it should be noted that the water will probably not stay clean for a long time.
  • In addition, sand shells can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Material
  • Most sand shells are made of hard plastic and are available in different colors.
  • Some varieties are also inflatable, but are the worse choice in terms of durability and health.
  • Be sure to check that there are no harmful substances in it. This can be recognized by test marks such as TÜV or ÖkoTex.
  • In terms of workmanship, sharp edges are a no-go.
Size
  • Sand shells are offered in several sizes, but are usually smaller compared to real sandboxes.
  • Here, the space in the garden / apartment and the age of the child should be considered. Sand shells are more suitable for small children
  • One part has a diameter of approx. 1 m, so that the sand shell takes up an area of approx. 2 square meters when unfolded.
Accessories
  • Usually nothing else is included in addition to the sand shell.
  • It is also recommended to buy a sun canopy if the shell is not in the shade. Sand toys must not be missing, of course.
