Your childhood dreams are dead :)
Iconic toy, the "Easy-Bake Oven" is about to become part of history. At least in it's traditional form. A federal ban on the manufacture of incandescent light bulbs, the Easy-Bake Oven's longtime source of heat, kicks in next year. According to Hasbro, they plan to switch to a different heating element. More than 20 billion Easy-Bake Ovens, featuring an incandescent bulb, have been sold since 1963. The toy was even been inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame in 2007. I am sure that we all hope that they can come up with another way to do it, because if you are anything like me, you probably had a lot of fun with this toy when you were younger. Come to think of it, that was probably the last time I baked anything without burning it or lighting the kitchen on fire.
