While waiting for my quarterly blood test, I saw this listed as a "toy of the year" in Disney's FamilyFun magazine:
Whipple Deluxe Pastry Set
With this sweet craft kit, kids can create little confections that look good enough to eat. (But don't do it!) Pipe the Whipple cream onto play food, then let it harden into treats that never go stale.
All you do is pipe cream? What a lousy toy.
At least with an Easy-Bake Oven, you can eat the fruits of your labour.
