As a dude who loves brownies and cookies, I normally wouldn’t complain about this but in retrospect, I have a couple of qualms with ‘em. If you wanted to purchase an Easy Bake Oven they were (and to this day, still are) located smack-dab in the middle of the girl’s toys section. To me, this means one of two things: either toy makers believe future women will inevitably end up in the kitchen OR they assume that no young dudes enjoy culinary arts and/or don’t know a thing about baking. I understand the segregation between Barbies and action figures but this is a different case. Does loving the preparation and consuming of baked sweets make a little boy less of a man? Absolutely not, so make an oven that isn’t hot pink and maybe parents can buy ‘em for boys too.
