Little would you know this but perhaps the largest Disney fans of the world reside in Japan, children and adults. So much so that this country has a special and orignal Disney theme park based next to the sea called Disney Sea. This one is a different venture from the Disneyland in Tokyo that folks just love visiting too. Well, with the involvement of die-hard grown up fans, you can expect a lot of innovation (and we mean big bucks) in the merchandise sector. For instance, a jewelry store in Osaka that goes by the name of Tanaka Kikinzoku has made a beautiful Snow White in pure gold. Accompanying her are the seven dwarfs who also enjoy being cast in the gorgeous yellow metal.
No wonder, this store is gaining a lot of mileage. It is believed that this little Disney team has a total estimated worth of $335,000. That said, it is not for sale. The makers believe that their favorite Disney Princess and her ‘kawaii’ seven friends are priceless.
All the eight gold figurines have been designed by Tanaka Kikinzoku thanks to a collaboration between his brand and Walt Disney (Japan). There is a special occasion too – to mark the Blu-ray disc version of Disney’s 1937 animation film classic.
