This past weekend we celebrated Tyler’s third birthday with cake, ice cream, and Little Tikes! We have been a huge fan of Little Tikes for a number of years and I couldn’t wait to see Tyler’s face when he opened up our newest Little Tikes product, the Patio Barbeque Set. Ty is a miniature version of my husband and takes after him with the love for outdoors, whether it’s fishing or grilling up burgers on the grill. During the spring and summer months the grill gets used on a daily basis, it’s always Daddy & Ty on the grill while Mommy and Jacob prep in the house.
As soon as Ty ripped open open the wrapping paper he started jumping up and down, not only did he have a NEW GRILL but it came with hot dogs and pizza too! He was so excited. The built-in pizza oven features a working oven door and the table-top hibachi grill has real sizzling sounds and lights up. When not in use the oven can be used for storage, the top grill also has a cover and the play food can be stored in there as well
- 1-Pizza cutter
- 1-Pair of tongs
- 1-Pizza pan
- 1-Pizza board
- 2-Hot dogs with buns
- 4-Pieces of pizza
Assembly was fairly easy, and only required snapping in a few pieces and a handful of screws. One thing I did notice is that when you are putting in the screws for the legs, to make sure to put the screw in at an angle towards the table or the screw will stick out the opposite side. Although an electric drill is not required, I highly recommend one. It will not only save time, but cuts down on the work. There were also limited stickers, about 6, which made his Mommy happy as I dread stickers.
In just the past week the Little Tikes Patio Barbeque Set has provided hours for creative, imaginative fun for my children and their friends. Throughout the day the boys love to grill up hot dogs and cook pizza in the oven, Tyler even found some condiments that we have previously purchased and makes sure to put ketchup and mustard on Daddy’s hot dog. It’s fun watching them role-play, especially watching Tyler as he carefully takes the pizza out of the oven while telling me to back up and not too touch because it’s too hot. I’m always telling him that he needs to back up while I open the oven since it’s too hot, and he made me do the same thing. The pizza cutter makes him feel like such a big boy cutting his own pizza, what a neat tool to include.
The Patio Barbeque Set was a great choice. I knew it would be the perfect size for 3 year old Tyler, but I was worried that the seats would be too small for almost 5 year old Jacob, but it was just the right size. The Barbeque set is recommend for 1 1/2 to 5 years old, it fits my almost 5 year old who is small for his age, I know my 5 year old nephew who is much taller then my son would not fit comfortably. I would recommend purchasing it for a 1 1/2- 4 year old, as a 5 year old would outgrow it quickly, unless the child is small.
Batteries: 3 “AA” not included.
