Or, Christ child rather. "Christkindl" is another variation, the little Christ child -- pronounced "Chrisst Kindle", the origin of Kris Kringle.

  5:50am fred von helsing:

As a hetero dude I'm proud to say that as a kid I had an Easy-Bake Oven and had no weird culture-qualms about it. So I'm totally 100% behind this "degendering" of it :-D
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:51am Julie:

Yay Fred, bake away!
  5:52am Matt from Springfield:

@FVH: It's about time! That's one of the few holdouts of "instructional" toys that still was set in its ways about gender branding. But no more! :D

Ooooh, ONJ rarity!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 5:54am Julie:
