Is it time for Bacon’s Show and Tell now? I thought it would never get here this month. This month we are highlighting the one toy that you really wanted as a child but never got while growing up. This should be really interesting today to see – here we go with mom’s.
When mom was little, she wanted an Easy Bake Oven. I bet there was more than one person who wanted this that didn’t get it. Can you believe that over the years, there have actually been 11 Easy Bake oven models?
In 1963 (way before mommy was hatched – snorts), the first one came out. It was turquoise and cost $15.95.
In 1965 (still before mommy’s time – snorts), Hasbro introduced Easy Pop Corn Popper, Birthday Cake, Party set and Kid dinners for the Easy Bake Oven. I guess that was one inventive way to get kids to eat their veggies.
In 1968 (mom still not born yet), General Mills came out with boxed versions for the Easy Bake oven.
Finally when mom was born in 1969 – see all of this wonderful stuff led to mom’s birth – Hasbro came out with the Easy Bake oven in green with more dials and even a hood.
Then in 1970, the green was replaced with gold and it cooked cakes twice as big.
In 1978, the Easy Bake Oven went stream lined and came out looking like a brown and white microwave.
Over the years, more improvements were made and more colors and sizes. Nowadays, the price of the average Easy Bake Oven goes between $29.99-$39.99, depending on what kind you get. So not much of a price difference really in 51 years. So many kids have loved these and played with them over the years.
Mom looks back and says she wanted one then but now she has a ‘real’ oven. She didn’t miss out on anything growing up in not having one… well maybe more calories on her butt but then again that’s a good thing she didn’t have one – snorts.
This isn’t good. This is not good at all. I need help my friends- LOTS of help. I need to make mommy better. She is having what she calls a ‘magenta’ kind of day. You don’t know what that is, do you? Mom is a huge fan of the Golden Girls and that’s where it comes from. This is what it means:
“Magenta…that’s what I call it when I get that way. All kinds of feelings tumbling all over themselves. Well you know, you’re not quite blue, because you’re not really sad. And although you’re a little bit jealous you wouldn’t say you’re green with envy. And every now and then you realize you’re kind of scared but you’d hardly call yourself yellow…I hate that feeling. Just hate it. And I hate the color magenta. That’s why I named it that. Magenta. No way to really explain it but, fortunately between friends you don’t have to.” ~Blanche Devereaux
You get it now? Plus she had to go to the worky place today. Magenta, Monday and work equals not a good combination. Not one particular thing can be the reason for Magenta. It’s lots of little things snowballed into one giant I need to shout it out like the kid from Home Alone.
Perhaps that would work for mommy? But then again, she’s at work and I really wouldn’t advise that in her industry. So, what do we do to get mommy out of the Magenta mood and into say a blue colorful happy color? Suggestions my friends? Anything you can help me with?
