Mishpacha Junior Speaks to Uncle Doovy

C.S. Teitelbaum

Uncle Doovy’s van is not the regular, musical ice cream van that chugs down the road on a hot summer’s day. His is actually the only soft ice cream van in the kosher world! That’s a one up for us Londoners! The van plays heimishe traditional tunes that bring little girls and boys scurrying towards it, their ponytails and peyos whipping in the summer breeze.

MJ: Hi. I’m sure many kids would like an ice cream van for their next afikomen present! Where do you buy one?

UD: The way it works is that you buy a regular van and take it to a special company that takes it apart and cuts out the entire inside from wall to wall, leaving you basically with four wheels. The van gets rebuilt from a material called fiberglass since otherwise it’d be too heavy to drive around, especially with all those appliances inside. It’s a huge expense.
