Paint your toast with Pop Art Toaster

Burn designs onto toast and then use the included set of FDA-approved pens to color them in.

FDA-approved. Target

I have never questioned the wisdom of encouraging the artistic side of a growing child (hint: I encourage it), but this toaster seems to me more than just a bit wacky. Sure, kids benefit from making mealtime engaging and fun, but if you think you had problems with them drawing their masterpieces on the wall, just wait until you train then to paint with their food!

Nevertheless, if you encourage your child's interest in art at every opportunity, this Pop Art Toaster Creativity Coloring Kit might be up your alley. It comes with six plates to burn predetermined designs into your morning toast. All the standard settings one might expect are there: level settings, slide-out crumb tray, and the like. But what truly makes this toaster stand out is the set of five coloring pens that come with it. Toast up some bread with Junior's favorite design, and set him down to eat paint.

While the pens are, of course, FDA-approved, parents should still consider the message they are sending their children. Buttering their toast with pens might seem like a good idea, until a child mistakes a Sharpie for a butter pen. Also making sure kids know how to read first would be smart, specifically the phrase "FDA-approved".
