In its nearly 60 years occupying toy store shelves and kids’ bedrooms, the Easy-Bake Oven has proven it could stand the test of time.

Of course, over the decades, the toy has evolved quite a bit, from changes in its design due to law changes concerning light bulbs to safety recalls to new models that reflect shifts in how society views gender. This is the untold truth of the Easy-Bake Oven.
