Lalaloopsy Baking Oven - Great Gift for Foodie Kids

My kids have always liked baking with me, but sometimes, it's not quite conducive to have them in the kitchen.  Or they want to make a little treat and I'm not really needing 3 dozen cookies or 2 dozen cupcakes!

We got the chance to test out the Lalaloopsy Baking Oven and, after most of the last projects being Ben-themed, Faith was thrilled to try it out for me.

The Lalaloopsy Baking Oven is a plug & use oven for kids. Besides the oven itself, it comes with themed pans, a “spatula”, measuring spoons, cake mix, cookie mix, frosting, and sprinkles. More mixes are available at your local stores or Amazon (I know we've seen them at both Target and Walmart).

How does it work? Just unwind the cord, plug it into the wall, and preheat the oven for 20 minutes. While it's warming up, mix up your batter (just add water per the directions) and set it in the included baking pan.  Use the spatula to push the pan into the cooking compartment and cook per package times.  When it's done, push the tray into the cooling chamber, then remove from the oven!  You can even decorate it with the included icing and sprinkles.

What did Faith think?  Well, since she's 12, she's a bit over the ideal age for it, but she did find it quite easy to use.  Our guess is about age 8 or so with minimal supervision and younger with supervision.

Faith also noticed that it's the perfect height to be a pretend stove for dolls, we measured against her American Girl dolls and she was right! So set the cooking utensils aside in your own kitchen and the oven is a great doll accessory too!

Want a Lalaloopsy Oven for your little girl?  It's on Amazon's Top Toy List and there's still time to get it before Christmas!
