Most Awesome Birthday Present Ever: Dad Gifts Daughter with Ghibli/Disney/Pixar-inspired Mural

For most parents, figuring out what to give their child as a birthday gift is always a tough call.  Toys are a usual go-to, but what if you want to be a little bit more creative?  One dad has seemed to have found the answer by managing to deliver what could possibly be the most impressive, if not the most incredible, birthday present for his young daughter.

A Reddit user, who goes by the name kordath, recently posted photos of a mural he painted for his 2-year old’s playroom, a surprise gift that was completed while his wife and daughter were away for a few weeks.

Done entirely in basic acrylic paints, the original piece depicts beloved characters from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Pixar’s Finding Nemo and Studio Ghibli’s Ponyo all happily swimming together underwater over a bed of coral, with the sun’s rays breaking through the water’s surface (challenge: see how many characters you can name!).  The precision and detail that can be seen in the final product is astounding and would amaze anyone, child and adult.
