The Easy Bake Oven was one of my most played with toys growing up. It could be the reason I enjoy cooking so much today. Having an item to teach me simple basics of baking such as mixing, measuring, preparing and cooking was a huge help to me and I want my daughter to have those same skills. It is important to me as a mom that my daughter learns to bake and cook now in her youth so she can have essential cooking skills when she is older.
She is ecstatic to be baking with her Lalaloopsy Baking Oven.
The new Lalaloopsy Baking Oven is a real working kids baking oven to bake treats that are oh sew delicious.

Zoe wanted to bake the minute this arrived. We adore all the cute parts on this oven such as the button knobs, heart shaped grill, heart shaped oven door with pin and heart shaped spatula and the overall pink color.
After reading directions and cleaning as directed, we went to work preparing the sugar cookie recipe. Zoe was able to read the directions entirely and mix up with the fun measuring spoons that say sprinkles (1/4 teaspoon), dashes (1/2 teaspoon), pinches (1 teaspoon) and big pinches (1 tablespoon).
The oven needs to be plugged in and the dial knob turned to on for about 20 minutes before baking. The oven does get hot and children should not touch it however there were no parts on our oven that would have burned if my child accidentally did touch it besides inside. It is still important to teach children that this is an oven and hot and not to touch.
Children will then use the included cookie mold to add the sugar cookie mix once prepared.
On the included baking pan, kids will love pushing the pan into the oven on the enter side with the oversized heart-shaped spatula and wait patiently for about 8 minutes for their cookies to finish baking.
Again, with the spatula they’ll push the pan into the cooling chamber to cool for about 5 minutes and then slide the pan out and frost with the icing. Unfortunately, our cookies weren’t nice and fluffy, but flat. I think the mix got to warm after preparing so next time we will definitely allow to chill for at least 15 minutes after mixing. Flat and crispy sugar cookies, that didn’t matter, Zoe was proud of her cookies that she baked and iced independently!
She also made the cake, however I forgot to get pictures but the cake came out much better than the cookies. She decorated with icing and the heart sprinkles and called it her mini Lala cake.
This oven is a cute gift idea for ANY Lalaloopsy fan. And when not in use, Lalaloopsy dolls will have their own oven for pretend cooking. There are additional tasty mixes that can be purchased separately for more baking fun including confetti cake, chocolate chip and sugar cookie as well as chocolate and strawberry cake. The only thing missing from this set is a small baking mitt but other than that this is an adorable oven for children to learn and is great quality.
