Do you clean the toys?

Rest assured, our sandbox toys undergo thorough cleaning protocols. Sand, known for its natural cleansing properties, acts as a physical agent to effectively remove dirt and oils. We want to ensure that every play session is as hygienic as it is fun.

Additionally, we disinfect our toys daily using an EPA and CDC approved diluted Clorox bleach product. Your child’s safety and well-being are our top priorities. We take every precaution to provide a clean and enjoyable environment.

What are the age requirements?

At Dig Dig for Kids, we’ve created a haven where young explorers aged 10 years and under can let their imaginations run wild in our specially designed sandbox. It’s not just a play area. It’s a world waiting to be discovered, an arena for creativity, and a space for boundless fun.

What about my young child's older (10+ years old) sibling?

Certainly! We warmly welcome children over 10 to the sandbox fun, provided they follow our Sand Play Rules. To that end, we ask older kids to be considerate of the younger ones and to handle all equipment gently.

Can I drop my kids off to play?

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, we kindly ask that an adult supervised all children while playing in our sandbox. This ensures that every young explorer can delve into the fun while their guardian keeps a watchful eye.

Can I play in the sandbox with my kids?
