Sand/Water Tables. Anyone Have a Favorite?

I'm considering getting a water table, or perhaps a water/sand table. Does anyone have one that they love? Or perhaps you have had a bad experience with one in particular that you think we should avoid? I'd love to hear if anyone has any recommendations. Thanks!

Re: Sand/Water Tables. Anyone Have a Favorite?

We have a small cheap water table...Step 2 brand that they sell in Wal Mart and both my dd (22 mos) and ds (7 mos) love it. The neighbor girl is almost 3 and she loves it to when she comes over with her mom. I am not sure a child would love it after 3 as it is a small one but it works wonders for us and was only like $40.

If you or your husband (or someone you know) are crafty you could make one like this!

Dh made it for christmas for our two year old. It has rice in it but he is going to make 2 more for outside one for water and one for sand (we are going to keep them on seperate ends of back yard so no mud pies here lol) We just bought a rubbermaid container and some cheep wood and he built the frame around the container. I think it only cost $15. The kids love it cause they can stand to play and all three of them can fit around it.

We have the step 2 waterwheel table.
I went to amazon & eopinions to find out pros & cons of each one. There are alot that are flimsy and downright dangerous!
We have water in ours but it's in our 6.5 ton sand pit, so it gets both! Kids absolutely love it to pieces!
I think it was like $26 with free ship. Alot of times a local CL family will have them listed for sale this time of year.
Here's ours:

We went with this one and it's awesome! It's gone up just a little... we only paid $63 and got free shipping.
