My mother got this for my daughter who is 14 months old. My daughter is a little hard to read sometimes, but I'm pretty sure she likes it. On hot days I like to turn the shell cover upside-down and pour some water into it for a little splash pool, I know my daughter likes that! It is big enough that a couple of small kids would have plenty of room to play. I am impressed by the strength of the plastic that the turtle is made from. Some workers had to move it the other day and they picked it up, full of close to 200lbs of sand and even though the plastic bent, it didn't break and held it's shape well. The only thing I would change would be to add a way to secure the lid when not in use so it won't blow away in the wind. A rock works, but it makes the lid dent in and it collects water. My daughter also loves the big box that it came in.
