~ What is it? ~
This is a play set that replicates a BBQ it is from Chad Valley.
~ Why I bought it ~
I bought this after seeing it in a hot deal on www.hotukdeals.com. Rather than the usual £16.99 price tag it was down to just £4.24 and I knew my five year old would appreciate being able to copy his dad in the garden.
He already has his own little tool for when he wants to help out in the garden but of course he could never help out with the BBQ due to the sheer dangerousness of it so when I saw this on Hotukdeals I quickly reserved one for my local Argos store. Had I not seen the deal I probably would never have actively looked for this but I am glad I found it as my son was really chuffed with it.
~ Price & Availability ~
This has a usual price of £16.99 and is available from Argos stores or online at www.argos.co.uk. I haven't seen it available anywhere else new, but there may be some on second hand sites like gumtree, ebay etc.

In the box you get a total of 20 pieces and this includes the BBQ itself. It is coloured in nice bright yet unisex colours and is very bright and attractive. The BBQ when not in use all packs into one easy to carry case, not a case as such but the both sides of the BBQ close together to form a nice easy to carry case!
When open you can pop open the four legs so that it stands off the ground.
In the set you get a good range of food icluding sausages, pinapple, corn, chicken and burgers, you get a pretend lighter, skewers, tongs and sauces as well as plates and knives and forks.
At the front of the BBQ is an on/off switch as well as two knobs.
When on the grills light up with the red coals and you can hear the sizzling sounds of the food cooking!
However even when it isn't turned on it is still as much fun!
Size H45, W32.5, D27cm.
This requires 3 AA batteries which are not included.
~ My Thoughts ~
Since buying this my son has used it quite a lot, more so inside than out due to our typical wet British weather. Using it inside hasn't detracted from the fun for my little boy though who kneels in front of the BBQ saying things such as 'Don't burn now good sausages' 'A burger you wanted yeah?' and none of the usual things his father says which are sometimes not so nice! 'Sh*t I've burnt the burgers' etc, etc.!
I wasn't sure if my son would play with this as much as he has as I thought once the novelty had worn off it would just be put to one side until we next have some BBQing weather however he really does seem to like it and it's usually kept down the side of the sofa as it's something he gets out quite often.
I am more than happy with it for the £4.24 I paid however if you are looking for a BBQ then this one is ideal, it's under £20 and is a nice size and doesn't look or feel cheap.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A great little BBQ.
