Editor's Review

Your little one is going to be grilling it up when the weather is warm thanks to the Step 2 Grill and Splash Play Center with Canopy. The grill features a 61-piece accessory set with utensil hooks and bins for easy storage, including a hinged lid, clicker knobs,a pavilion-style playhouse, and a space to hang up utensils to keep them nearby. The market-style canopy shades the entire space and protects it from rainfall. The large play space provides room for multiple toddlers to stay entertained for hours. The basin can be filled with water or sand so kids can pretend to plant, water, and harvest vegetables. Kids can fill the dump cups at the sink and pour water into the hanging rain shower tray, which will simulate washing real dishes. The grill took me 45 minutes to put together by myself. It wasn’t that hard as long as you had a power drill handy. The directions say you need a screwdriver, but you most definitely need a power drill. Assembly was super easy thanks to the directions as they were very easy to understand and everything was made even easier because the parts were labeled “A,B,C..etc”. Since putting this together, Riley has played outside with this one toy for hours! And that’s without adding water to the mix. .
