Yes, it is a fondue set for kids, making this perhaps one of the greatest toys of the seventies. When I ran across this ad in the catalog I stopped and stared, reading the page over and over to make sure that I hadn’t gone completely insane. Nope, I’m still only slightly insane and the Kiddie Fondue was a real toy back in 1974. Don’t believe me? Check out all of the toy pics at History’s Dumpster and then try to not search eBay for a Kiddie Fondue set of your own.
Bonus: The Easy-Bake Oven also appears on this catalog page! Light Bulb Baking* is still your best source for info on the history of the Easy-Bake Oven and is very much recommended if you’re interested in the history of toys in general.
