Uneasy–Easy Bake Ovens

premier_model_easy_bake_ovenThis is a follow-up to my original “Easy Bake Oven” expose, written  September 2011.  The familiar toy was formerly powered by heat from incandescent light bulbs.

Incandescent bulbs have been phased out–replaced by compact fluorescent and LED bulbs; which put out little heat energy.  To the disappointment of children and parents everywhere.

A favorite toy for decades–if not a messy one.  First made by Kenner–now by Hasbro.  The Hasbro Company, came out with an updated version of the toy–sans light bulbs.

This one has a heating element, and is priced at 49.99, instead of 29.99.  No doubt the price has gone up since then.  It’s enough to make a person wax nostalgic for one of those gooey little cakes.

What do you want to bet–revised “Easy Bake Ovens,” burn as much energy as the old ones with incandescent bulbs?  Of course, it has always been about the children–wink, wink.
