In addition to physical fitness and encouraging kids to develop a healthy imagination, playtime can also be a useful tool for developing important life skills that could one day help your child land a job. A playhouse might teach the joys of domestic bliss, but a tiny taco truck will let them learn the skills needed to be self-employed.
Made from sturdy cardboard wrapped in lovely taco truck-inspired illustrations, the $US59 playhouse is big enough to accommodate a couple of passengers -- one kid taking orders while the other cooks -- and it folds flat for easy storage when their shift is over. You can even customise the truck with a home-printed vanity licence plate on Famous OTO's website, instead of grabbing a Sharpie and mucking up its design. [Famous OTO]
