The castle

The Hello Kitty Castle, that is. Located in Shangai, China, a rabid fan built this in honor of his favorite character and operates it as a museum. Surprisingly: A popular museum! I think I would put this up there with world's largest ball of twine....The pink living room. What is that shade? bubblegum? strawberry ice cream? Can you sleep in a room this pink? Scientists want to know.After seeing all of that sweetness, do you really want to sit down to dessert in the dining room?The backyard is a relief in its lack of pink! Can you believe this is in Shangai, it could be Omaha, Nebraska or the like by the looks of the yard. I hope you enjoyed the travel-log!

Haha.. Seriously, what a house! Have never been much of a Hello Kitty fan, but this person is going all the way! At first glance I seriously thought it was a cake.

All that pink is my living nightmare...

At the same time, though, so well done given the circumstances

Crazy! To me this looks less like Omaha and more like Hollywood. Watch out about the world's largest ball of twine comment or the world's largest prairie dog might come to haunt you.

Holy Hello Kitty, Batman! Though, I have to say, this would be a dream come true for the under 8 set.

I have no desire to visit. Oddly enough though, I've always wanted a Hello Kitty waffle iron.

ArchitectDesign™ said...

David, that IS odd!! haha But fun!!

Style Redux said...

oddly enough, when I traveled to Japan, I came home with a newfound appreciation for little Japanese things and hello kitty too. I worked for Ralph Lauren and the Japanese were obsessed with America and Mr.Wauren.
Walph Wauren. I adore the Japanese and their culture.

Me too, Patricia! One of my favorite classes I took in college was 'Japanese culture & architecture'.

Ahahaha! A couple of years ago, my daughter would have been begging for a visit! Timing is everything.
