Knowing that it's Kodak, they will probably give me a different price than you. They work that way. Also, depends on the "accessories".

I would off the top of my head, wild ass guess, say 250 big ones, US.

I like the easy bake ovens. Just easier to use.

As I understand it they no longer use a light bulb as the cooking source.

Ya, too dangerous. They probably recommend children wear helmets and protective gear just to use it. Gotta avoid those lawsuits.
