     Well, assuming the heating element itself is sufficiently safe from 
catching fire (UL approval or equivalent), calling it a toy isn't 
implausible.  The old ones I knew when I was in the target age bracket 
were built such that it was physically impossible for even the smallest 
hands to reach far enough inside to touch any of the hot metal (which 
made getting Baked Items that had risen a *bit* too much *really* fun to 
get out).
