Build A Dream Playhouse Review and Giveaway

Do you remember making cardboard playhouses as a child?  Have you ever bought your child what you thought was the perfect present?  Just to watch them only want to play with the box that it came in?  If you said yes... I've got great news!  What if I told you that now the box can be the perfect present!!

My daughter loves playing with boxes.  She will take any box that she can get her cute little hands on.  She is forever taking boxes that arrive in the mail and adding them to the collection in her room.  She used them to hide stuff in, for baby beds for her dolls and for houses for her stuffed animals.

Imagine her surprise when I gave her in ice cream truck from Build A Dream Playhouse!  The Imagine Wagon is just like the real thing.  Ice cream bars on the top, each with a bite taken out of them!  It also has side mirrors, luggage rack, dashboard and a light bar.

This ice cream truck has been "driven" all over our living room.  The kids climb in through the doors and stand up, carrying their ice cream truck around the house selling yummy ice cream along the way.  Of course, they created a great menu and everything is only $1!


I love the fact that the Build A Dream Playhouses are so unique.  They aren't just your standard cardboard playhouse.  Plus, your child gets to customize them any way they choose.  Using crayons, paint, markers, colored pencils and even stickers.


  • Made in the USA
  • Eco Friendly
  • Sturdy and Durable
  • Manufactured with recycled materials
  • Product and packaging 100% recyclable


Build A Dream Playhouses come in a variety of unique designs: 
  • castle
  • kitchen
  • snack shack
  • "dream machine" car
  • "cosmic cruiser" rocket
  • "imagine wagon" ice cream truck

The Imagine Wagon was so easy to put together.  It took about 5 minutes from start to finish.  The Build A Dream Playhouse kitchen and castle are both  "pop n play" and don't require any assembly. 

Perfect for both boys and girls!
