They were pink or turquoise plastic and cooked cakes and cookies using a light bulb- it took forever but it was very cool!

I still have my Easy Bake Oven that I received the Christmas of 1970 when I was two years old. I baked many a dessert in that oven and last pulled it out about five years ago and "made" my parents and husband play easy bake with me! The saddest thing was when I saw the identical item in an antique store!

I used to have one, I was about 7 or 8, it was the late seventies...I baked up a storm, I think mine was yellow.....I wish I had kept it.

I just fell out laughing about Mark's comment above. I guess that's why us 4 girls were always making psychadelic looking melted crayon cakes. Our oven was turquoise colored.

I can't find a picture of what mine looked like. It was green/turquoise but it had a door that opened like a regular oven. My brother told me one day that he was cooking a bird in my oven, and he REALLY had put a dead bird in there!

I really used that oven. My friends would come over and we'd bake those little cakes in that little silver round pan. I loved making my own desserts. When my daughter was small, I bought the newer plastic version. It just wasn't the same. When she grows up I know she won't have a fondness for that one like I had for mine. I bet almost every little girl had one in the 70's.

I had the turquoise one. It took like three hours to make a cake and my mom would buy the Jiffy mixes, I'm about to turn 44 yrs old and that toy inspired my love of baking that has been with me my whole life.

@Tammy: My older sister had the one you spoke of. It looked like a real oven. She must have gotten hers the beginning of the '70's. I got mine in the middle. It was the red one mentioned. I so loved it! To think, all that baking from a small light bulb.

I had the red one in the 70's and loved it. I made my dad little pizzas and such and he always ate mine before the meal my mom had prepared. The door fell open when the food was done. I would love to see a picture of one!

I had a yellow one! Got mine in the mid 70s. I remember the front of it kind of looked like a microwave oven. I played with it all the time. Wish I still had it!

I had a pink one...I loved it but later I blew it up with a firecracker...this is still my choice over cooking.

I had the Holly Hobbie one and it was Dark Blue and looked like an old fashion oven. Soooo Cool!!! I didn't do much baking on it 'cause when the mixes it came with were gone my parents wouldn't buy me more!

Tonya, I knew I recalled that mine was dark ble and looked like an old fashioned stove! I thought I must have beeb making it up! I think I still have the pans for it and that really long spatula to get the cakes out of the oven.

Kenner introduced the Easy Bake Oven in 1961. One of the few "safe" electrical toys which had only a minor issue or two, making it a big seller for decades. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, an early B&W TV commercial with chocolate cupcakes being made. This aired on the "Alvin Show" over CBS (3/14/64). Episode ends with a funny PSA for Smokey Bear with David Seville and Chipmunks trying to record Smokey's A,B,C's.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a TV commercial block for Kenner. First, for Easy Bake Oven, which sort of broke traditional norms of the past. This ad sent a message that it's OK for boys to use it and bake their own treats (as well as eat them). Second ad was for Spirograph. A prototype of the yellow Kenner "Fun Bird" appeared. This aired on the "Space Kidetts" cartoon show over NBC (2/25/67). A Hanna-Barbera series about four kid heroes (and puppy) fighting their nemesis each week, a red-bearded space pirate.
