I am thirty-four and I still love Easy Bake Ovens!
This year is actually the 45th anniversary of the Easy Bake Oven. If you hop over to the Easy Bake site, you can see the history, including photos showing the evolution of the Easy Bake Oven over the years. It is so fun to see them all!
When I was a kid, we had the orange one from the very early 80’s. Oh how I adored our Easy Bake Oven. We seemed to rarely have any of the recipe packs; we baked more sliced apples than Easy Bake cake mixes. But we never grew tired of it!
Did you have an Easy Bake Oven? What are your early memories of Easy Bake.
I thought having a son (and the most testosterone-driven boy possible at that!) I would be skipping the Easy Bake Oven stage with him. But as a creative little monkey who loves to cook up the most bizarre “recipes,” he is thrilled to spend time in the kitchen. When I mentioned that we would be reviewing Easy Bake – he begged to test it! LOL
When I brought it home, I told him to close his eyes because I had a surprise for him. When he saw it, he screamed with as much excitement as if I had just given him a video game. Now his excitement probably has to do with the fact that he is imagining eating all the cakes and cookies he wants to make, but it is still super cute!
It is such a riot going from Nerf Blasters and everything “boy” with Jackson, to seeing him put on an apron, grab some pink utensils and whip up an Easy Bake cake! That kid continues to surprise me – and make me laugh out loud.
The latest version of the Easy Bake Oven is pretty much just the same as I remembered it. Sure, it now looks like a microwave, but it all seems to work just like it did when I was a kid. I love those little round tin cake pans! (Jackson was disappointed when he realized his “cakes” were going to be that small. I guess he figured that he would be making full size cakes! LOL)
