This was a little oven (a lot like Easy Bake Oven) that you could make your own sun catchers in. The highlight was the viewing window in the top so you could watch the plastic magically melt before your eyes.

I just bought an entire box of these at a thrift store. The instructions on the back, say to bake them at 375 for 15-25 minutes (it took the entire 25 minutes when I did one last night)

I loved doing these also. I just bought some the other day at Michaels (art store) they sell between $4 and $6 each. So apparently they are still being made.

My favorite-ever Christmas ornament was a gingerbread house in pink, white and green from a make-it bake-it set. I went home this week to "steal" it from my mom and she said she'd thrown it away!!!! If anyone has one, email me, I'll buy it. I'm very sad :(

Thanks so much, Shawn for the info. I bought a complete set for 25c at a thrift store, but didn't know what temp or how long. I loved these things as a kid, so I got the set for my kids.

My sister and I found both of our ovens in the storage unit today. We brought them home for her girls. Where can we find the beads and wire things?

well I went to my moms house to see if she still had any thing left from my child hood we never had the oven we used the oven in the kitchen. She still had one frame in a box and a ton of the crystals. the company name on this old frame box is Quincrafts corp the box says to bake in oven for approximately 15-25 min at 375 degree oven.
Jennifer - December 18, 2009 - Report this comment My husband and I were just reminiscing about Makeit & Bakeit the other day. I found this website where you can order the kits and it is really not expensive. The Christmas kits are all sold out, but they have many others that are nice.

I had the oven and a TON of the kits when I was little, and it was one of my favorite toys, I am actually looking at a Garfield suncatcher I made when I was like 6 that I kept all these years, I have it hanging up in my house, and I'm 30 now :)

I just bought a package of suncatchers at a yard sale and did the craft with my 4 year old daughter. She LOVED it! I baked them at 375 for about 20-25 mins. Fun little craft. Takes me back about 20 years :)

This was my favorite "toy" as a child! i played with the oven for hours and hours. Then I graduated to larger projects and used our regular house oven. I found a couple kits on clearance at Michaels just the other day! Time to introduce the craft to my 3 year old haha! Wish i still had the oven tho. ;D

I absolutely loved making these things as a kid. I never had the official oven; my mom and I just used the oven in the kitchen. My mom made a bunch of little Christmas Makit & Bakit ornaments (Christmas tree, angel, caroler, candy cane, Santa's head, wreath, and candle with holder among them) when I was really little and gave them to me when I got my first apartment. To this day they're among my very favorite Christmas ornaments. I miss these!

My daughter and I have had tons of fun together doing these each holiday. They do still make them and you can find them at Micheals or TJ Maxx. What a fun, retro thing to do with your kid!!! The company who makes them is Quincrafts a division of Colorbok.

Was there another name for theses besides suncatchers?

Just found one in a thrift store and it's now for sale in my vintage shop on Etsy. The oven, one frame and a handful of the crystals with instructions on how to create the suncatchers and how to set up the oven are included. The oven is already assembled, works great, includes the light bulb and the original box. Happy Crafting!

My daughter just got a makit bakit buttefly kit for her birthday. I couldn't believe it! I still have the little crystals from the ones I had left over from when I made them when I was a kid. I don't know who was more excited about seeing it me or my daughter. Here is the website of the comapny that now puts these out. Not sure if it is the same company or not. I unfortunately did not find these suncatchers in any of their product line ups, so I did have to do an online search for makit bakeit suncathers by colorbok. happy searching!

I still have my Makit and Bakit Oven from when I was a kid. Don,at know how it survived all the moves but it still works great and original light bulb still works.

I did one of these the other day. They aren't called that any more but there exactly the same. All you do is put the small pices of plastic where You want it and put it in the oven until it fully melts.

I bought some kits at Hobby Lobby 2 weeks ago... under the name of Makeit and Bakeit. My kids had a blast. I grew up with the oven and I remember it as one of my favorite toys!!

These item were distributed by Parker Brothers and called Makeit & Bakeit. You can similar items on amazon though I think they look like cartoon characters and not near as interesting as the older ones.
