When I told my girls we were reviewing a Hasbro Easy Bake Ultimate Oven they both let a squeal of joy! When the big box arrived on our doorstep it was like an early Christmas present.
I never had an Easy Bake Oven as a child and it’s definitely one of those toys I coveted. Today I can share the joy of this classic toy with my girls. It was on their wish list and they were thrilled to try it out.
My younger daughter was especially excited to put on her apron and test it out, as she is a whiz in the kitchen and loves to cook. We made chocolate chip cookies and, as you can see, she loved every minute of it. She enjoys following recipes, mixing the ingredients, and waiting for the final product. The cookies are tiny, though, so I think they were gone in literally a minute!
The new Ultimate Easy Bake Oven for 2011 retails for $49.99 (although I have seen it on sale for less than $40 at several big box retailers) and comes with everything you need right in the box so you can open it on Christmas morning and bake up some fun that very day. Although we’ve only made sweets to far with our Ultimate Easy Bake Oven, I can’t wait to try the pretzel and pizza mix. The instructions were very easy to follow. It’s a fun way to connect with your kids in the kitchen and get them out from behind screen time, whether it be TV or video games.
The new oven has been redesigned to be light-bulb free and comes with a baking pan, cupcake pan, pan pusher, chocolate chip cookie mix, red velvet cake mix, pink frosting mix, rainbow sugar crystals package, paper cupcake wraps, and the instructions/recipe booklet.
If you’re looking for a fun gift for the girls on your shopping list this holiday season, the Ultimate Easy Bake Oven is a sure hit! It definitely was at our house!
Disclosure: I received a Hasbro Ultimate Easy Bake Oven in order to facilitate this review for Ignite Social Media and I opted to have another one donated to Toys for Tots.
