Pros:Similar to a real grill, comes with food.

Cons:None.

The Bottom Line: The Sizzle 'N Glow Grill Playset by Fisher-Price is a fun way for your children to barbecue.


More than two years ago, when my children were both "graduating", my son from Pre-Kindergarten and my daughter from Nursery school, I wanted to get them an end of year gift, without spending a lot of money. Since the summer was upon us, the Sizzle 'N Glow Grill Playset coordinated nicely with our upcoming barbecue season.

The grill is designed to look like a real charcoal grill, except this one is made of colorful plastic. The cover is red, the underside is green, the tripod legs are beige and the shelf underneath is blue. Opening the cover reveals a grate, under which are charcoals that glow orange and make a sizzling noise when the yellow button on the front is pushed. This button is very easy for children to push, and takes almost no force to activate the sound and lights. Attached to the underside of the cover, as with many real grills, is a small shelf for additional cooking space. On both sides of the cooking area are green shelves, which any cook knows comes in handy when cooking. There are even two holes cut out to hold the tongs.

A few plastic accessories are included with this grill including a cheeseburger (which separates into its components for proper cooking), two chicken legs, a hot dog in a bun, a blue spatula, red tongs and a yellow plastic mustard bottle. To our dismay, no ketchup was included. The meat products come complete with grill marks on them. The blue shelf between the legs is the perfect spot to store it all, unless of course, you are like my children and want to keep all the items on the cooking surface and close the lid.

This grill itself measures about 18" across, 19" high with the lid closed and 26" high with it open, and takes up about 14" in each direction of floorspace. The size of this Sizzle 'N Glow Grill Playset was perfect for my children when they were three and four years old. Now that they are seven and five and a half, they tower over it but that does not stop them from playing with it.

We have played with this grill on an off for more than two years and just recently I had to change the two "AA" batteries which is not difficult, but requires a Philips-head screwdriver (originally they were not included). When she was younger, my daughter did not like the "sizzling" sound, so we did not use our batteries much. The sizzle and glowing features are nice, but even now that the noise is not scary to them, they hardly ever use it. The grill itself is the draw for them and the lights and sound are just used occasionally.

Our Sizzle 'N Glow Grill Playset has been dragged around the house, sat on by children, and knocked over numerous times, and is still in one piece with no cracking of the plastic. It has held up much better than I thought a twenty dollar toy would.

I highly recommend this Sizzle 'N Glow Grill Playset for any toddler who likes to pretend to cook. For those who do not have the room for a pretend kitchen, this small grill would be a good choice instead. It is recommended for ages 2 to 5, and I would agree with that due to its size. Children above that age still enjoy playing with it, but find themselves too tall to comfortably cook on it.
