I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For An Ice Cream Truck Playhouse!

Written by Michelle of Avery & Augustine

Ice Cream Truck Kids PlayhouseWith the cold weather encroaching and your kids still pining for summer’s frozen treats, this ice cream truck kids playhouse is just the ticket.  Its cheery color palette and vintage flair will brighten up any gray day, and the truck is finished off with the cutest handmade embroidered and patchwork details.  Some of our favorite features are the windows and awnings, and naturally, Avery and Nate love leaning out the window to take a customer’s order.

After a morning of selling their freezy dream treats, Avery and Nate eagerly noshed on ice cream sandwiches from Coolhaus, a local business which had its beginnings as a modern-day ice cream truck roaming the streets of LA.  No matter how cold it gets, something tells me Avery and Nate will have ice cream on their minds all winter long!
