The Cookeez Makery Baked Treatz Oven is the latest craze in kids’ toys. It’s sort of like an Easy-Bake Oven, but instead of brownies and cakes, you can bake your own plush toy. Of course, you’re not *really* baking a stuffed animal — we’ll walk you through exactly how it works.

The playset has been in such high demand since it first came out in August 2023. But surprisingly, we’ve seen a couple of price drops on it since then.

Below, we’ll share the best places to buy the Cookeez Makery toy when it’s in stock, plus some intel on discounts we’ve seen so you can get the best deal on it.

1. The Cookeez Bakery is an ‘oven’ where you can ‘bake’ a new stuffed animal — for $30+. (But you can find it on sale now, more details below).

The Cookez Makery Baked Treatz Oven kit includes two packets of “ingredients,” which you mix with water in a large bowl. The ingredients will form a consistency kind of like kinetic sand. Once mixed together, you’ll fill a small animal-shaped mold with the ingredients. Then, pop it in the playset oven, set the timer, and wait for the ding.

The magic happens inside the oven as your mold “cooks” for a minute and a half. The dough doesn’t actually turn into a plush animal; there is a shelf inside the oven that slowly moves down to hide the dough and reveal the stuffed animal.

Once you’ve taken the plush toy out of the oven, squeeze it to hear cute animal noises. A long squeeze in the middle of the animal will make it warm up for two minutes, so it resembles a freshly baked loaf of warm bread!

The oven playset comes with almost everything you need to “bake” your own plush animal. You’ll just need to provide your own mixing bowl and water.

The kit, which retails for around $30, includes:

  • Colorful oven playset
  • Two ingredient pouches
  • Measuring cup
  • Pet mold
  • Spatula
  • Plastic storage bag
  • Plush toy

Tip: Now, if you’re thinking it seems silly to spend $30+ on a one-time-use toy, you’re not alone. Though you can only mix up the ingredient packets on the first use, the kit comes with a plastic storage bag to hold your dough and keep it from drying out. To reuse the toy, simply place the plush animal on the top shelf of the oven to reset the playset. Then, use the dough and the mold to recreate the animal shape, and “bake” the plush toy all over again.


2. Find Cookeez Makery at your local Aldi at the lowest price ever, as part of Aldi’s Weekly Finds in Nov. 2023.

We can’t guarantee that this is in stock at your local store, but it’s definitely worth checking — especially since this is the lowest price we’ve seen on the set since it first launched.

Aldi is offering the set for $24.99, which is even lower than the toy’s previous price drop of $29.86 at Walmart and Amazon. For context, the original MSRP of the toy is $34.99.


3. Target RedCard shoppers get the next best overall price at $28.49 right now.

One of the cheapest options available is at Target (just $0.02 more than the overall cheapest option), but you can save even more by using your Target RedCard. This is a loyalty store card that helps you rack up points and benefits with each purchase. Using your RedCard always get you 5% off any purchase.

The toy is on sale for $29.99, and RedCard users can get it for $28.49 now.

The catch is that it goes in and out of stock at Target. I was able to order one online (there were only two in stock when I placed the order) and pick it up in-store. I walked down the toy aisle to see if they had any more in stock, but I couldn’t even find a price tag on display for them.

You can also order it online for shipping when it’s in stock. As of mid-September, certain sets for available for shipping in my area in California. We recommend calling around to all the Target locations in your area to see if they have one in stock before you head out on a wild goose chase.

4. Even better: By taking advantage of a limited-time Target Toy coupon, you can get it for 25% off.

Once this returns in stock, you can save even more if you quality for the special Target Circle Target Toy coupon. You could save 25% on the set, which brings the price down to $22.29 (before RedCard discounts).

Tip: Since prices at Amazon, Walmart, and Target are all fairly similar, use the free shipping that comes with your Prime membership, Target account, or Walmart+ subscription to save on shipping.



5. If you can’t find it at Aldi or you’re not eligible for the Target Toy Coupon or RedCard savings, head to Walmart or Amazon to find the set for under $30.

The next best price we found besides Aldi’s and Target’s offers — before discounts or loyalty savings — was $34.97 from both Amazon and Walmart. Target and Moose Toys had a similar price of just two cents more, but retailers like Scheels and QVC have the toy listed closer to $45. However, loyal Target shoppers can save an extra 5%, which we’ll talk about next.

However, in Nov. 2023, we saw the Cookeez Makery go on sale for $29.86 before it went out of stock. As we predicted, the toy set is even harder to find during the holiday shopping season.

6. There are three variations of the playset, each with 3 surprise plush options.

Part of the fun of the oven is that you don’t know exactly which plush you’re going to get when you put the dough in to “bake.” The playset comes in three color options (pink, blue, and multicolor), and each one has a surprise bunny, cat, or dog plush inside. The plushes all look pretty similar, to be honest—the only real difference is the ears. (And as far as we can tell, you can’t buy the plush toys individually.)

Multicolor Playset Plushies:

  • Raspbunny Glaze
  • Frosty Fido
  • Sour Puss

Pink Playset Plushies:

  • Strawbunny Swirl
  • Cinnamon Pooch
  • Fondant Feline

Blue Playset Plushies:

  • Wheatney Bunny
  • Barky Bun
  • Ciacatta Bake
