New Sprouts Grill It! Play Food
No matter the weather, young grill masters can sear up a storm inside or outside with our new Grill it! The fun and finger-friendly way to pretend grill, this engaging kettle-style grill is soft, durable, easy to handle, and comes with a full assortment of play food, allowing children ages 2 and up to express their inner BBQ king or queen. Using the tongs to move foods on, around, and off the grill allows them to practice fine motor skills as well as hand-eye coordination.
From veggies to steak, chicken and burgers, there's plenty of mouth-watering play food to cook and serve. Best of all, there's no mess to clean up and all of the food stores inside the grill for easy put away.
This 22-Piece set includes: 1 kettle-style, 4½"H x 8" in diameter grill w/removable grate, 2 burgers w/buns, 1 chicken breast, 1 steak, 2 slices of cheese, 2 pieces of lettuce, 2 tomato slices, 2 ears of corn, 2 asparagus bundles, and 1 pair of tongs.
There's no excuse not to fire up young imaginations! Grill it! coordinates with all of our other New Sprouts® play food collections, especially Garden Fresh Salad Set.

If you're working hard to put healthy food on your children's plates, shouldn't they be playing with healthy food? These sets provide lots of healthy food for lots of creative play. Food pieces vary with the set but might include fancy slices of carrots, celery, lettuce leaves, onion wedges, tomato slices and wedges; all with a satisfying weight and just enough pliability. The grill set includes meat pieces but the other sets are all fruits and veggies. The dishes are adorable and "realistic" for little hands. What well-stocked kitchen doesn't need a soup tureen, salad bowl or serving platter? Each set includes the cooking and serving dishes appropriate to the theme: tongs, ladles, spoons are all there - just what you would need for serving soup or salad or grilling dinner. I have to admit, though, that my favorite is the grill set with its bundles of asparagus and ears of corn. The plastic bushels introduce a nice variety of fruit and vegetables, sized comfortably for little hands and just begging for creative play involving trips to the farmer's market.
