We’ve been in Austin for seven years, and since being here, the area has been in a drought. In fact, 2011 was the hottest year ever recorded – it reached 100 degrees for 90 days during that summer. The other years have been hot as well and have had their share of sweltering heat. My lawnmower usually has cobwebs on it by August.
That’s not going to be the case this year as it’s basically been raining all spring. It has been reported that May of 2015 is now the wettest single month on record for all of Texas. April and May are normally the best times to be outside and to enjoy things like hiking, visiting parks and going to outdoor events. It’s also the best time for grilling in the backyard, with Memorial Day being the unofficial start of the grilling season.
When Little Tikes sent me a Sizzle n Serve Grill to review, I initially planned to let the little dude check it out during Memorial Day weekend. Those plans got washed away with the rains as we received over a foot of rain during the holiday. This weekend looks much better though, so it’s time to get to grillin’.
The little man had a blast playing with the grill while I prepared dinner on the grown up version. He’s still a little younger than the recommended age (2+), so his hand eye coordination isn’t quite there yet. He can handle holding the utensils but doesn’t have the dexterity to do anything more than slide the food around, so at this point his favorite thing to do is to furiously knock the food off the grill with the spatula.
Overall, the Little Tikes Sizzle n Serve Grill is a great way to include the little one while grilling outdoors with the family. It’s also compact enough for indoor fun. This durable toy easily snaps together with no additional tools needed and features an easy open lid, sturdy wheels and a bunch of accessories:
- 1 pair of tongs
- 1 spatula
- 1 bottle of ketchup
- 1 bottle of mustard
- 2 hamburgers with buns
- 2 hotdogs with buns
