In the audition tape, Randy Stenger introduced himself and said that he lived with his five children and fiance in Minnesota. He stated that he was the founder of Extreme Sandbox. The video showed his kids playing in their driveway, as Randy narrated over it. He said that he had the idea when he was passing a construction site with his children. The kids said that it would be fun to play on the equipment, which got the gears in Randy’s head turning. The scene changed to the front room of business, where Randy greeted potential customers. The narration said that Extreme Sandbox is a company where clients get to play on real life construction equipment. It showed a “foreman” directing happy looking people through a 10-acre construction site style sandbox. They have many different types of construction equipment such as bulldozers, excavators, and they also have the ability to crush cars. Randy claimed that Extreme Sandbox has the power to make dreams come true.
A sandbox is supposed to lock an application into a restricted space so that even if a vulnerability is found in the software, it cannot be exploited to do damage on the system. So if you were to visit a website that is hosting a malicious Flash file, it will not actually be able to break out of Flash Player’s sandbox and do damage to the system. Creating a sandbox is usually achieved by dropping the application to a low-integrity process. Being low-integrity, it can’t access the system in uncontrolled ways.

I think the quality was good and it is everything I expected it to be. The delivery was on time and assembly was easy too.

It is great. It went together easily. The kids love it. I have nothing but good things to say about it. I like this sandbox because it isn't wood and with our sprinkler system, it won't get damaged. The cover fits nicely. I did as recommend with putting an exercise ball underneath the cover to help the water sheet off.

My daughter received this sandbox as a gift. It was very simple to put together. We've only used it once, but I'm sure both kids will love it for years to come. My favorite part is that it will easily come apart next we move!

Seems expensive for a sandbox, but it's well made so easy to put together-I did it myself. My three kids (3, 5, 7) fit in there nicely. I was worried about the mesh bottom but I think it's to let it drain. It takes about 800 of sand. Very happy with my purchase.
As the tape showed Randy taking reservations over the phone, he told the audience that he quit his 6-figure job, and used his entire savings and retirement account to start Extreme Sandbox. He said that he wanted to make it a national brand, and that where he needed the investment from the Sharks to continue forwards. He put the guilt trip in there at the end, saying that his family was counting on him to make a deal so they can improve their future.
What a great idea! I've been trying to figure a way to do a sandbox without it becoming a local catbox since we have lots of cats in area. I like this!!!
