Petition to get Hasbro to Feature Boys on Easy-Bake Oven Packaging

December 12, 2012 | By More

McKenna Pope’s little brother loves to cook. She was surprised when she walked in on him “cooking” tortillas on top of his lamp’s light bulb.  Obviously, this is not very safe. So he asked Santa for his very own Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, made by Hasbro. McKenna found it appalling that boys are not featured in packaging or promotional materials for Easy Bake Ovens, and the oven only comes in pink and purple, ostensibly targeting girls.

So McKenna started a petition at Change.org to get Hasbro to feature boys on the packaging. There are many talented and successful male culinary geniuses, like Gordon Ramsey, Mario Batali, Emeril, Bobby Flay, etc., but Hasbro continues to market that girls are the only ones who should be in the kitchen.

Join McKenna and sign the petition to get Hasbro to feature males on the packaging and in promotional materials for the Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven, as well as offering the product in non-gender specific colours.
