Easy Bake Oven (Kenner)
Pretzel vendors on the streets of New York City during the early 1960s inspired toymakers employed at Kenner to make the Easy Bake Oven. 2 100 Watt light bulbs serve as the heating element. Specially made cake and cookie mixes take a mere 15 minutes to make. Ovens come with a recipe book, utensils and slide-thru bake pans. Original ovens were yellow or turquoise. Since its debut in 1963, 23 million Easy Bake Ovens have been sold. The Oven was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2006.
