NJ Girl To Meet With Easy-Bake Team At Hasbro

Posted: Updated:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A New Jersey girl who started a campaign calling for an Easy-Bake Oven in gender-neutral colors is planning to meet with the people who design it.
    
Toy maker Hasbro says it has invited 13-year-old McKenna Pope and her family to meet with the Easy-Bake team Monday at its Pawtucket headquarters.
    
Hasbro's Julie Duffy says they invited McKenna in to listen to her thoughts and ideas.
    
McKenna was prompted to start an online petition after she wanted to buy an Easy-Bake Oven for her 4-year-old brother and found them only in purple and pink. Several top chefs, including Bobby Flay, have since asked Hasbro to make them in more colors.
    
Duffy says Hasbro has made the toy in gender-neutral colors in the past and believes it's great for girls and boys.
