Hasbro this week invited to its headquarters a 13-year-old consumer who started a social campaign for a gender-neutral version of the Easy-Bake Oven for her little brother. The girl got 44,000 signatures in support of her idea that the pink-and-purple ovens suggested "women cook, [and] men work." Hasbro showed the teen, McKenna Pope, a preview of a black-and-silver version it intends to launch next year.
