What do you think about the new push to make the Easy Bake Oven gender neutral?

GOOD IDEA!  I hate gender specific roles/careers.  My 5 yr old was telling me how yesterday the boys go to play basketball but that they had the girls be little cheerleaders!  That bothered the heck out of me because why the heck cant the girls play basketball with the boys too?!!

Most pastry chefs are actually men.

It's a good idea but I also wouldn't have had a problem buying my son a purple oven if he had wanted it.

Good idea.
I don't see why they didn't just make it a neutral" color to begin with. There are as many men chefs as women.

I think they can do both. My girls like to have pink and purple stuff. I know there are probably boys that like the original design, just like there are girls that would prefer the new design. I don't see why we need to keep pushing the gender neutral everything. There is nothing wrong with having traditionally "girly" colors or "boy" colors. Why not make 3 designs? 3 different color schemes to choose from? There are a lot of toys that do that already.
