Like many little girls who were born in the 1960s, Melanie had a small collection of Suzy Homemaker toy appliances. Old photographs from birthdays and Christmases past document the times they were received. Melanie had the Suzy Homemaker Oven / Stove and the Suzy Homemaker Clothes Iron. Since hers was long gone my the time we got married in 1983, we decided to look for them on eBay. As with just about everything ever made, we easily found them in nice condition. Neither the oven nor the iron came with their original boxes because those are very expensive.
This page of Suzy Homemaker products appeared in the 1967 edition of the Montgomery Ward Christmas catalog. The $13.99 price for the oven in 1967 is equivalent to $102.29 in 2018, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Inflation Calculator. Based on that, we paid a good price (somewhere around $40).
