Children are cute, and every parent or grandparent has a tendency to want to spoil them. That is until they begun to get too dictatorial. In general, that is when any spoiling stops. However, for a few ridiculously wealthy people, spoiling a child is a sign that you can afford to give them whatever they want. For these parents, nothing is too over-the-top for their bundle of joy. Whether it is a birthday cake for a one-year old that costs as much as a four-year college degree, or a one-of-kind doll with the same price tag as family sedan, some people pride themselves on providing their children with the very best, or at least the most expensive. Recently, a playroom at the Jade Ocean condo in Florida made headlines, as it is apparently the most luxurious playroom ever constructed. Filled with pieces from the extremely high-end children's shop, Genius Jones, the playroom looks more like a museum than a place to get downright silly. The room features child-sized Philippe Starck chairs, a small grand piano, a mini Alfa Romeo, and enough graphic black and white wallpaper and flooring to make a child wonder if they have stepped into a vintage film. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto a nearby terrace. The condominium itself is equally over-the-top, with touch-screen interior control in all units, concierge services, two pools, a private beach club, a full-service spa, a fully equipped health club, and a 24-hour business center. The penthouse condo is reportedly on sale for $6.9 million. While all of this luxury is well and good, if the entire condo complex is as cold and impersonal as the playroom, the ownership may have trouble finding any takers.
