A New Jersey teen started a petition asking toy company Hasbro to make its Easy-Bake Oven more boy-friendly after her brother asked for one for Christmas. Thirteen-year-old McKenna Pope started a Change.org petition over her 4-year-old brother's love of cooking. McKenna says, "My little brother has always loved cooking. Being in the kitchen is his favorite out-of-school activity, and he yearns for the opportunity to cook on his own." But the toy oven has long been marketed to girls and made in gender specific colors like pink and purple. Pope's petition calls on Hasbro to drop its all-girl advertising so boys like her brother feel comfortable asking for the toy.
