Spice up playtime: Taco trucks are a colorful alternative to typical playhouses

Everyday can be taco Tuesday when your child has his very own Oto Taco Truck! Kids love cardboard, playhouses, and play kitchens, and this toy is a caliente combination of all tres!

This quintessential New York City toy was designed in Brooklyn by Swedish entrepreneur Måns Swanberg who says, “The possibility [of making] huge cardboard playhouses with super vivid illustrations was just too fun to pass up.”

Made in the U.S.A. of non-toxic, recyclable, biodegradable materials, the beautifully illustrated truck is easy to assemble — and disassemble and stow away under a bed. It measures 40-inches by 36-inches by 24-inches, and after you receive it, you can go to Swanberg’s website and design and print out a personalized vanity plate for your little chef’s truck! (He also offers an ice cream truck version.)

Recommended for children ages 2 and up, this taco truck promises hours of imaginative play. And for pet mom and dads, Swanberg has created even more ridiculously cute, smaller cardboard playhouses for your family cat!
