I'm posting this everywhere because I think it's really important.
So we bought Emily this great Oak sandbox for $200 (not an eyesore) and were going to buy sand from Lowes called Play Sand which is made for sandboxes. It turns out it is full of asbestos and silicone, yeah and this is the "safe sand". The only sand that is truly safe and free of all that stuff is sold online and is about $450 with shipping to fill up an averge size sandbox. So... for all of you thinking about buying a sandbox for the little ones to play in during the summer, make sure you get the asbestos and silicone free sand or you could be looking at cancer an emphysema down the line... SCARY!!! So our little cheap summer toy has now turned into a $650 investment, ack!!!!
