Plush Team Contest Entry - Favorite Childhood Toy Plushie - Easy Bake Oven

Crochet Easy-Bake Oven Plushie

The Plush Team currently has a project going on where we need to create a plush inspired by our favorite Childhood toy. This is my creation for the 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:

wow, that is amazing!

I had a lot of fun with the easy bake too... just wasn't patient enough to let them cook all the way through. haha

I remember the cute little spoons and spatulas.

Anyways, looks great! I have to go check out the other entries.

That is really nifty. I cannot imagine all the work that went into that one.

I either was not the right age for one of those, or somehow it just passed me by....
