As Premium account holder I prefer to tinker and glue my prims together in the peace and quiet of our super duper exclusive sandboxes over the griefer infested public sandboxes. Sounds cheesy, eh, coming from a Socialist but come on, the public sandboxes have been really abusive places and really driven me off.

Playing with prims, building and scripting objects in real time, along or with friends in a WYSIWYG [for the youngins this stands for “what-you-see-is-what-you-get”] kind of way: this is a big part of the magic of Second Life.
If you don’t own land or your landlord has just a small area restricted to rezzing and finetuning your models, fear not: there are many different sandboxes in SL, many attached to helpful groups where experienced builders are at the ready to assist with tips and tricks.
For premium Second Life members there are exclusive member-ship only sandboxes available as well.
In the video we see several sandboxes featured, including one of the very first ones in Morris which has been around since 2003 when the Welcome Area of Ahern came online.
The Ivory Tower of Prims can also be seen in the video. Not only does it have script-enabled sandbox areas with a separate damage-enabled weapons testing area. The Tower is also a info hub for aspiring builders with lots of tutorials on how to manipulate the basic building block of SL: the almighty prim.
Another friendly sandbox area is the one embedded within the Amsterdam community. Don’t worry: many people in Amsterdam in SL speak English so don’t hesitate to approach a friendly [flying?] Dutchman or woman if you are stuck with a building challenge.
