Below are the best currently rated sand and water tables. Most have fun features such as water slides, sand toys, and interesting sand covers. The main cons for all of them is that the sand and water tend to mix somewhat when little ones are playing and most pieces are movable such as large slides or towers. To avoid the sand and water mixing together you could alternate between using it as a water table or sand table only. Sometimes the whole fun of it is mixing the sand and water together. In addition to the links below, I will be adding to this list regularly. Stay on top of news and sign up with our email. The quick list to view them is below.

Step 2 Sand and Water Table - Splash N Scoop Bay
This fun table features a water tower with slide, drain plug, lid that covers half of the table, and a scooper. The table part is about 16.5 inches tall and it can hold 15 pounds of sand. It is long lasting and customer service seems to be good if you need a replacement. There is a hole in the middle so you can add an umbrella, but it does not come with one. Lastly it should be noted that other fun items can be added into this table besides sand or water such as sensory water beads or toys.

The first feature is that it’s a nice large size at 24 by 42.5 by 23 inches. Secondly many accessories are included: boats, shovel, pail, and two small bridge pieces. Third, the nice umbrella is great because it provides some protection from the sun. Fourth, it includes a nice large cover and the water area has a plug. In addition the recommended age is 18 months to 5 years. For this reason it works great inside during cold weather by using sensory items (A lot of people have tried using rice).

Water and Sand Table Toys
All the below are all currently highly rated and I’ve divided them up by their current pricing. Anything like water guns and squirters would pair great with these tables because they can use the water from the water table to encourage more play time.
