On Did you have an Easy-Bake Oven when you were a child?

I was more of a Creepy Crawlers girl.

I had one of those things as well. My spiders were the coolest.

Yep, and I had the Thing Maker (Creepy Crawlers), and eventually had access to my brother's wood burning kit. I never burned a hole in the carpet, but the hamsters were never relaxed ...(I kid about the little critters). I also learned how to cook, not just heat.

I strongly believe young people today should take home ec., and basic banking or personal finances. I also believe that young people who grow up in homes with firearms should have an opportunity to take firearm safety in school.

I also believe music and art should be taught along with the three Rs. Education isn't just about knowing how the read, write and do numbers.

I had a Daisy Red Ryder 200 shot lever action BB gun.

CLOSE!! Well, that and that when I discovered tools I wanted to disassemble everything. My toys, my sibling's toys, appliances, electric shavers . . . . trouble was, I never seemed to get them reassembled. At least not so they worked . . . .

A lot of the older kids still have easy bakes except they call 'em bongs nowadays.

I didn't have an Easy Bake oven. My mother taught me how to cook real food for real people.

Always wanted one but here's why my mom kept it from happening:


Also, it's not real cooking. If you want a child to learn to cook, use something besides powder and water.

I was too old to want one when they came out.

With the end of the incandescent bulb creeping closer. Is the easy bake oven even relevant? Is owning an easy bake oven even a heuristic for understanding modern people? Nope it's not sorry journal world. Would you eat food cooked with a china made L.E.D. bulb? The incandescent bulb is going to be a thing of the past. The replacements contain chemicals that seep out of plastic or worse, mercury. The easy bake oven should have been left in the 80's

No. My toys were gender appropriate. A person of the appropriate gender for one of those to which I am related had one though. She baked little cakes for me.
