Boy Builds His Own Bunnings Sausage Sizzle Because He's Missed Them So Much

Boy Builds His Own Bunnings Sausage Sizzle Because He's Missed Them So Much

Ted has taken matters into his own hands.

A little Australian boy has taken matters into his own hands after missing his beloved Bunnings sausage sizzles. Watch the clip below:

Ever since the DIY hardware giant shut down the delicious eatery outside many stores, due to the coronavirus, many have been crying out for them to return.

Some people might raise an eyebrow or two about why these simple culinary delights are so revered in Australia, but they'll clearly never get why a Bunnings snag is so good. While many of us have been patiently waiting for the sauso sizzle to return, a four-year-old boy decided to create his own at his Sydney home.

Ted revamped his creative play-pen to simulate the barbecue section, made up a perfect Bunnings sign and even donned the classic green apron to serve up some snags for his family.

The boy's mum, Katherine Colgan, said that little Ted was upset his favourite snack service was no longer allowed to operate during the coronavirus pandemic.

There aren't any plans, as yet, to bring back the sausage sizzles at Bunnings stores.


While the number of coronavirus cases is improving across Australia, it's still not 100 percent safe for large numbers of people to be gathering - particularly around food.

"The Bunnings sausage sizzle is an integral community fundraiser and we know both our team and customers are eager to see it return," said Bunnings Managing Director Mike Schneider.

"Unfortunately, this and other in-store activities remain suspended while we focus on providing a safe environment in our stores during this time...we can't wait to bring this much-loved community program back."

So, we'll have to wait for an official word from HQ, however it's likely to be a state-by-state/territory-by-territory basis.

The sausage sizzle also helps raise loads of money for community causes. So not only have people been missing out on their sauso fix, but also groups and organisations have been missing out on some much-needed cash.
