Tiny Meals Cooked and Served

(Video Link)

Konapun is a Japanese toy that was produced by Bandai between 2007 and 2009. It allowed children to cook what convincingly appears to be food, but is not actually edible:

The toy goes to amazing lengths to make it look and feel like a realistic cooking process. So for example, if you are making something fried like donuts you drop the "donuts" into fake "oil" and it bubbles as if it was really frying. This bubbling/frying effect is used in several Konapun toys such as the hamburger grill and one that makes tempura.

It's astounding how real each of the food items look in the end. For example, the rice separates into tiny clumps that look just like sticky rice. And the marinara sauce on the spaghetti is runny and looks just like real sauce. Couple that with the kits' tiny mixing bowls, spatulas, cookie cutters, and other tools, and it makes for a fascinating toy.

Yeah Morris....It's called the Easy-Bake Oven-They still make it-45th Anniversary model is on sale now for $25, "your generation" is not that frikkin' old ya geezer, stop pretending to wax and pine for some far off time long ago with that self-absorbed melodramatic shpeeel...

It simply seems like a long time to those whose memories fail them in such insignificant aspects of spatial anomalies like passage of time and recent (100 yrs) history.Psycho-cybernetic programming of YOURS and SUBSEQUENT generations have rendered most people alive today fundamentally, functionally flawed.
