There are a variety of toys everyone remembers using as some of their favorites when they were growing up. For me, I remember Barbie’s being one of my favorites along with Polly Pockets, Beanie Babies and of course the infamous, Easy-Bake Oven.
I remember begging my mom to buy me one of the Easy-Bake Ovens because my friend, Madison had one and I just HAD to have it. I’m not sure if it was the idea of being able to make my own treats for myself without having to ask Mom or if it was the girly pink spatula and oven that got me. Whatever it was, I loved it.
