Remember your first Easy Bake® Oven? What about the ones you have purchased for the kids? I think this one toy brings back the most memories for me--both as a child and as a mom! We will be hosting a review of Light Bulb Baking by Todd Coopee next week--but, until then--check out this book and visit some of the other stops on the book tour to learn more about Light Bulb Baking and author Todd Coopee.
This first definitive retrospective of the Easy Bake® Oven celebrates its journey from children's toy to pop culture icon and inductee to The National Toy Hall of Fame. The book explores the innovation, history, economics, commerce, advertising, and marketing behind the toy’s 50 year history. This book is a must read for vintage toy collectors, nostalgia buffs, foodies, and anyone who has ever peered through the oven's watch it bake window, eagerly anticipating the moment they will be able to serve and enjoy their very own culinary concoction.
