This is a clever marketing tactic by some savvy real estate developers (with Pixar's blessing). Had this been in New York I would've headed over to it in a heartbeat to tour it with the kids. On a sadder note, the balloons do not come with the house. Although you could get yourself a Golden Retriever, name it Dug, and call it day.
