It took only a second for a four-year-old Chinese boy to destroy a Zootopia Lego figurine of more than 10,000 bricks built over three days and nights for an exhibition, mainland media report. Film review: Zootopia – Disney’s all-animal animation is a wildly entertaining take on race relations News posted online about the destruction of the Disney cartoon character, Nick Fox, created for a Children’s Day exhibition on Wednesday at a shopping mall in the city of Ningbo, in Zhejiang province, sparked fevered online debate, the news portal Youth.cn reported. More than 60,000 comments and views were generated after the artist, identified only by his surname of Zhao, wrote on his microblog site that he felt depressed and frustrated after his exhibit was pushed over. He had worked for three days and night without a break in order to complete the Nick Fox character in time for Wednesday’s deadline. Disney’s Zootopia topples Kung Fu Panda record as it rakes in US$170 million at China’s box office The boy had ignored the “No touching” sign on display beside the exhibit and sent it toppling over only one hour after it went on public show at the mall, the report said. However, the artist wrote that he and the exhibition organisers had accepted the apologies of the boy’s parents. Most online comments left by people after his post said the child and his parents should be punished, while some other users said the shopping mall should have taken more precautions to protect the exhibit. “A kid with bad-behaviour is the result of poor family education,” one person wrote. “They must be fined, otherwise no lesson will be learned.” “I went to Hamleys toy shop in London today and there is a floor full of Lego figurines,” another internet user wrote. “No warning signs were put up to tell people not to go to close to the different Lego pieces, but no child has touched them. I really feel ashamed about the poor behaviour of us Chinese.” The organiser of the exhibition in Ningbo put up a sign where the Nick Fox character had been standing calling on the public to show greater respect for the artist and for his work. It showed pictures of the completed figurine and also the many Lego bricks left scattered on the ground after it was pushed over. “Now Nick [Fox] looks like this [with bricks scattered all over the ground]. Aren’t you heartbroken?” the sign said.
