A New Easy Bake Oven … for Boys Too!
When I was a kid I always wanted one of these. OK, now stop it! Don’t be gettin’ me wrong I loved me some trucks, toy guns, & anything with which you could potentially poke out an eye. But I like cooking now and I liked cooking then. My sister had an Easy-Bake Oven and every once in a while she would invite me down the hall for a little fine dinning. She would send a hundred and ten volts of love to power the magical incandescent light bulb that would bring forth tasty under-cooked cookies and cakes. Mmmmm! (This was in the 70’s when a little salmonella just made you stronger.)
Now this New Easy-Bake Oven is for boys too!
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Hasbro revealed a gender-neutral Easy-Bake Oven while meeting with a New Jersey girl who started a campaign calling on the toymaker to make one that appeals to all kids. McKenna Pope, 13, of Garfield, N.J., visited the company’s Pawtucket, R.I., headquarters yesterday. Officials unveiled a prototype of Hasbro’s newest Easy-Bake: black, silver and blue rather than purple and pink. McKenna said the company is doing everything she asked, including putting boys in the ads. Hasbro said it had been working on the new color scheme for about 18 months. The item could be on store shelves by summer.
I love the Easy-Bake Oven! Don’t judge me. Is it so wrong!?
