It's a Hello Kitty World

Hello Kitty to take over China. Turns out it wouldn't change much!


Picture it: China, 2013. You plop yourself down in a small boat and float through a beautiful world of animatronic puppets singing an irresistibly catchy tune that sticks in your head for a month. And those puppets are ALL Hello Kitty.

At least, that was the first idea that popped into my mind when I read that China is considering building a Hello Kitty theme park to open in 2013. The park would be a little bit smaller than the entirety of the Disneyland complex in SoCal (including Disneyland, California Adventures, Downtown Disney, and all the hotels), so pretty big for a solo park. And about 30 times the size of Japan's Sanrio Puroland theme park.

Of course, Hello Kitty already appeared at one Chinese theme park, along with an awful lot of Disney characters...
