That the Chinese are crazy about Miffy is not news. Mi Fei, as the Utrecht rabbit is called in China, is even so popular that recently a special Miffy subway runs in the city of Shenzhen.
The Chinese regularly stare fascinated at the Miffy traffic light on Lange Viestraat in Utrecht or they play antics to get the figure in the photo. But now they don’t have to travel the world to enjoy the world’s most famous rabbit. That’s also possible in their own country in the cheerful metro, which is all about Miffy.
The inside of the metro is completely decorated with pictures of the rabbit by Dick Bruna. The brown dog Snuffie is also depicted in it and even the well-known flowers with white leaves and yellow hearts are not lacking.
