Queasy Bake Cookerator

The Queasy Back Oven is a variation of the Easy-Bake Oven. First introduced by the Kenner toy company in 1963, the Easy-Bake Oven has remained a popular toy of American girls for more than 40 years. This widely successful working oven for little homemakers was powered by a 100-watt light bulb, a common household item that comforted parents even as the oven's diminutive cakes delighted their daughters. The Easy-Bake Oven has endured as the most popular activity toy (excluding dolls) among young girls. Part of its durability lies in its styling, which has wisely been changed with the times. The early turquoise model of the sixties morphed into the double oven with magi-glas of the seventies, and later, morphed again into the ubiquitous microwave oven of the nineties. Kenner made little cake and dessert mixes available as well as special cooking sets. When General Mills purchased Kenner in the late sixties, the parent company supplied tiny Betty Crocker cake mixes for the Easy-Bake Oven, thus encouraging life-long, brand-name loyalty at a tender age. Periodically, the makers of Easy-Bake attempt to broaden the market for their product by offering a variation to appeal to boys. The Queasy-Bake Cookerator represents one such attempt. Designed to make the most of boys' penchant for all thing gross and disgusting, the Queasy Bake is sold with food mixes for temptations like Chocolate Crud Cake, Mucky Mud, Delicious Dirt, Bugs 'n' Worms, and Crunchy Dog Bones.
