One playhouse up for auction will have you going in circles. Literally!
Welcome to the Loopty Loop house with spiral steps intended to give kids the idea of play. It comes with a ladder and a slide. The open roof lets kids know the sky's the limit, according to architect Edward Fitzgerald.
"It's open to the sky and there's transparency so as the kids move through you can watch them from outside," Fitzgerald said.
Another of the custom-designed playhouses is inspired by a famous car company in Germany.
Actually, it should look familiar as it is an exact replica of all Mercedes-Benz dealerships worldwide. It's complete with pillars, clear facades, and a showroom and is called the Mercedes-Benz Autohaus.
Michael Borowski, a Project Architect for VHGA, says that if you took two images and put them side by side at first glance it would almost identical, minus the fact that this playhouse doesn't come with an actual car.
If your kids like to make an entrance, you might want to bid on this next playhouse. There's the front door, but also numerous windows that kids can worm through. The design coincides with message of feeding minds and feeding empty stomaches, according to Senior Architect Srdan Kalajdzic.
This is why the playhouse is called the "SunCrisp". The color scheme of the playhouse also resembles an apple. Kids can also plant themselves underneath the house via the trapdoor.
Proceeds from the auction will help kids whose families struggle to put enough food on the table.
Carlos Garcia, General Manager for Garcia Automotive Group, says that anything New Mexico Appleseed asks you to do should never be answered with a "no" because the contributions and proceeds go towards such a great cause.
For just $10, you can buy a ticket to win the Butterfly House in a raffle next week.
