A Small World At A Big Price, Kids Break $64K Glass Replica of Disney Castle!

Remember the old adage, “you break it, you buy it”?

Well, for a group of kids visiting the Museum of Glass in Shanghai, it’s a motto they’ll never forget.

While in the museum, two kids were chasing each other around when they bumped into and broke a $64,000 glass replica of the Disney castle!

The tower, also known as The Fantasy Castle, was “demolished,” a  museum spokesperson said, while other parts were damaged.

Despite it’s name, the castle was inspired by the Enchanted Storybook Castle at Shanghai Disneyland.

The glass display features over 30,000 individual pieces and is decorated in 24-carat gold.

It was created by the Arribas Brothers, Rudy and Miguel, Spanish artisans who gave the castle to the museum back in 2016.

Ironically, when told of the accident, the brothers were not upset.

“We’re used to kids and this kind of stuff happening,” Rudy explained. “Glass breaks. Nothing is done on purpose.”

He added that once the travels restrictions are lifted, his brother will flight out to make the repairs.
