We live in an urban, mixed-use neighborhood, and what we don’t have in the way of a yard we more than make up for with our super-huge deck. While a walk to the park is almost always nice, sometimes we all just feel like being home. To fill our daughter’s outdoor fix, we love the nicely-shaded sandbox from Tierra Derco. It’s free standing and big enough to fit a couple of toddlers and their sand toys, but not so big that it takes over the rest of the outdoor space. The simple cloth canopy ratchets up and down two support poles so when our peach is done with her play, it acts as a cover to protect the sand until the next round.
