Hi Bhushan,

Sandbox is an associated organisation which you can't create for Developer Edition.

But for Other Paid editions we have following 

Developer Sandbox
Developer sandboxes are intended for coding and testing in an isolated environment. These environments include a copy of your production organization’s configuration (metadata).
Developer Pro Sandbox
Developer Pro sandboxes are intended for coding and testing in an isolated environment. These environments include a copy of your production organization’s configuration (metadata). They have a larger storage limit than Developer sandboxes. The larger limit allows for more robust test data sets and enables this environment to handle more development and quality assurance tasks.
Partial Copy Sandbox
Partial Copy sandboxes are intended to be used as testing environments. These environments can be used for quality assurance tasks such as user acceptance testing, integration testing, and training. These environments include a copy of your production organization’s configuration (metadata), and a subset of your production data as defined by a sandbox template.
Full Sandbox
Full sandboxes are intended to be used as testing environments. Only Full sandboxes support performance testing, load testing, and staging. These environments are a replica of your production organization, including all data—for example, object records and attachments—and metadata. The length of the refresh interval makes it difficult to use Full sandboxes for development.
When you create a Full sandbox, you also have to decide how much field tracking history and Chatter activity to include.

The default is to omit field tracking, but you can include up to 180 days of field tracking. Specify fewer days to avoid generating an excessive amount of data if you track field history for many objects in your production organization.
Chatter activity data can be extensive, which can add a significant amount of time to your Full sandbox copy.
