The design sensibility in Japan is completely different than here in the US. Take this Japanese Mickey Mouse Humidifier. Notice how subtle and “grown-up” it is for a Disney piece- even the colors are somewhat muted- red, brown or white. It’s simple without being tacky or kitschy. In short- it’s aimed at adults. Because adults need moist air too. Speaking of, the mist comes out of Mickey’s ears. This humidifier measures about 8″ high and costs $149 (because it’s imported, and it’s Disney).
