Favority Childhood Toy Plush - Easy-Bake Oven

Crochet Easy-Bake Oven Plushie

Here is my entry for the Favorite Childhood Toy Plush Project - a plush design inspired by my Easy-Bake oven. It was really hard for me to choose one favorite toy....there were just so many great toys in the 80's! But then I remembered how much fun it was to eat overcooked brownies and undercooked cakes.....so I just had to make an easy-bake oven! The entire thing is crochet except for some of the detail on the front where I hand-sewed pieces of felt together and hand embroidered the numbers. I even made little plush cakes with removable pans, and constructed the plush so that they can travel right through....just like the real thing!

Bonus Fact - Why did I embroider the time on the plush as 2:56? Well, when I was little, anything over the number 10 was 256, so I figured I'd incorporate that in. I had a lot of fun taking a trip down memory lane while making this plushie. Here's a picture of me playing with my Easy-Bake Oven As a wee kiddo:

This is just absolutely fabulous. I loved Easy Bake as a kid, even though I never got to own one, but yours is hands down cooler than Easy Bake, Lite Brite and Operation all combined. Terrific job.

This is the most brilliant thing I've ever seen in my entire life. I am astounded, seriously, and if I manage not to buy this for my greedy little self it will be a miracle.
