Toys: Edible Gingerbread Playhouse

Dylan's Candy Bar, the world's largest candy store, have made a fairytale witch's dream come true, with this huge edible gingerbread playhouse. (Don't worry, there's no oven! You're safe!) For everyone else, if you just ignore the little Christmas trees and turn the snoman into a pumpkin man, and you've got yourself a fantastic Halloween playhouse!

"...This unique edible playhouse is handcrafted of 381 lbs. of gourmet gingerbread and 517 lbs. of royal icing by the expert confectioners at Dylan's Candy Bar®. The munchable manor, which stands 6.6 feet high by 5.25 feet wide by 4.1 feet deep, incorporates the best confections from the world's largest candy store in New York City. With literally thousands of signature gourmet sweets from which to choose, it is both artfully designed and decadently delicious. It includes giant cookies, lollipops, gummies, mints, gumdrops, and (of course) a candy-encrusted roof. There's also a lollipop tree inside, just for good measure. CEO and self-proclaimed Candy Queen Dylan Lauren was inspired as a child when she watched the classic movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory..."

It looks pretty amazing, but comes with an equally amazing price tag of 15,000 dollars! But if you do happen to be a particularly rich witch, you can head over to Neiman Marcus and buy yourself one. Even if you're not willing to spend that kind of money on confectionary, it's still worth heading over to Dylan's Candy Bar for their Halloween candy and contest (open to US residents only) HERE!
