Keeping the kids amused this summer…

Many of us encourage our kids to spend as much time outdoors as possible when the weather’s good.

Keeping them entertained throughout those long summer can be tricky, so here are some great outdoor toy ideas to keep them busy.

LeapFrog Smart Sizzling BBQ Grill

Keep learning on the menu with the Smart Sizzling BBQ Grill! Little grill masters can pretend to grill by securely placing eight different play food items on the interactive skewer. This smart grill recognises the food’s name and colour. Twist the skewer to count along with the grill, then turn the temperature dial from 1 to 10. Hear the sizzling and cooking sounds!


The grill knows if the heat is too high and asks to have the dial turned to a lower number. Safety messages are included! “Careful. The grill’s hot! Don’t get burned.” Utensil hooks keep the tongs and spatula at the ready to serve steak, fish, green peppers and more onto the included plates. Don’t forget the pretend sauce! Learn, Play and Music modes multiply the fun. Press the star button for grilling suggestions, melodies, phrases and sound effects. The pieces store inside this entertaining grill for easy clean-up.
