Elzar: Eighth grader using an easy bake oven? Does not fempute... My preschool aged daughter got one last year - I don't think this eighth grader is in the standard easy bake demographic./ Or is there a new way that kids get high these days that involve easy bake ovens?// It seems implied in the name
Elzar: Eighth grader using an easy bake oven?
ArkAngel: Would it not be simpler for him to just use a real oven?
dv-ous: 13 is old enough to cook
Attention Whore of Babylon: I don't think it's the 8th grader who wants the oven. She is petitioning to get a gender-neutral version for her little brother who wants one and is offput by the "girly."

Get this kid some cookbooks and decent ingredients for Christmas instead
brigid_fitch: She's petitioning on behalf of her 4-yo brother. I'd love to see Hasbro do this. I've always been annoyed with the "Shrink It and Pink It" mentality of toy companies. "Hey, girls like X toy that's marketed to boys. Let's make a girls' version!" No, idiots--just put a couple of girls on the packaging and in the commercials. That'll do the same damn thing.
Bondith: PublikwerksBesides, isn't this slightly hypocritical. Isn't the same kind of thinking that "cooking is a girls job" responsible for "pink is a girls color".Cooking is only a girl's job in the home. Only men are good enough to be restaurant chefs (allegedly). The solution here is to change the pink plastic to industrial steel, package it with a silly hat and slap some celebrity chef's face on the box.
Publikwerks: The solution is simple - do it yourself. Hasbro isn't going to make the product less desirable to their core audience to appease a few people. So, do it yourself. Take the plastic shell off, or tape up where the food goes in, and get a can of olive drab paint. Paint the sucker green, or if your abitious, go for cammo.Hell, get a stencil, and spray in yellow "Property of US ARMY. USA-01214-01B FIELD OVEN"
redqueenmeg: My sons like purple. Not that this girl doesn't have a point. She really does.But I'm trying to teach my kids that everyone can like any color they want to, also.
