toy idea for girls: cupcake maker.


I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that {in my eyes} this cupcake maker is a few steps above the Easy Bake Oven. Now calm down, don’t let me offend you here. I had my very own Easy Bake and so does my little P, but I don’t think it can hold a candle to this cupcake maker, which is one of the hottest little girl toys this season. Actually, I can’t really be sexist and call it a girl toy because I know my 4-year-old son C would go just as crazy for the cupcake maker as he would some Hot Wheels. What’s not to like? You add water to the mix, whip it up {it takes 30 seconds, it’s great for inattentive little creatures} pop it into one of the cupcake cups, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and voila, cupcakes! Love it.
