I have a 2 family house and my sister,her husband, & my 3 1/2 year old nephew live on the 1st floor. I love to bake & cook. I always send cookies, cake, etc downstairs and my nephew is always asking me to bake cookies. He has a few pretend cooking/baking playsets that he plays with all the time. Anyway, I called my sister before I bought it and asked her what she thought and she said ok. He will be supervised when he uses it and he is a very smart little boy for his age with a beautiful imagination. Have any of you bought an Easy Bake Oven for a boy? I wish they would make a separate box with a boy on the cover because the one I got has a girl on it.
