Are Your Kids' Toys Hall-of-Fame Worthy?

10 of 11

Easy Bake® Oven

The inspiration behind this light bulb-powered oven came in the 1960s from pretzel vendors on New York City streets. Toy maker Kenner, Inc. introduced the first Easy Bake® in 1963 and has since sold over 23 million sets.

Parents rest easy knowing their child won't get burned by the 100-watt bulbs that power each oven, and kids love the treats that come out of them. Each set comes complete with cake and cookie mixes, utensils, bake pans, and a recipe book that helps create delicious, single-serve desserts for each little baker. It's no wonder such a sweet toy has remained so popular through the years!
