Only when girls want the Red Ryder bb gun.

When I was a little girl, among the items I wanted for Christmas over the years but never got were a chemistry set, a microscope, a telescope and an erector set. And I loved playing with my big brother’s Lionel trains and helped him put together models for the train layout. I probably would have had great fun with a Red Ryder BB gun. I wasn’t a tom boy in any sense but I did like science and building stuff.

I did get an Easy Bake oven when I was in the 2nd grade, I recall it was yellow, not pink and the cake mixes that came with it were awful. I wasn’t long after that my mom got me a Betty Crocker cookbook for kids and I started using the real oven. My brother BTW is an excellent cook and baker.
