- Reaction score
I had this as a kid, so did my own kids. They also had the things that makes creepy crawlers and 'stained plastic' ornaments. I guess we were really into burning kids. I'm much more nervous now, if I ever have grandchildren, only snowcones for them!

About 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens sold since last May have been recalled because children can get their hands or fingers caught in the oven's opening, which poses an entrapment or burn hazard.
The company has received 29 reports of children getting their fingers or hands caught in the product, including five reports of burns.
The recalled plastic ovens are purple and pink. They resemble a kitchen stove with four burners on top and a front-loading oven.
"Easy Bake" is printed on the front of the electric toy, while "Hasbro" and model number 65805 are stamped into the plastic on the back.
The recall does not include Easy-Bake Ovens sold before May 2006. Toys "R" Us, Wal-Mart, Target, KB Toys and other retailers nationwide sold the toy from May 2006 through February 2007.
The ovens were manufactured by Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro Inc.
