Mario Kart is my sons' all-time favorite Wii game, so we were thrilled when K'NEX began making Mario Kart and Super Mario building sets a few years back. In fact, we gave K'NEX Mario and Luigi motorcycle building sets as party favors for 3Po's Mario Kart-themed 8th birthday party! K'NEX and Mario's world go together perfectly, because kids can create all kinds of adventures for Mario and his friends, and since you can build practically anything with K'NEX, the adventures are limited only by a child's imagination.
Here's a video we made that highlights all the best features of this building set:
This building set includes a Mario figurine, dressed in a cat suit, and a mouse figurine. Kids can lead Mario through the course, sending him flying with the help of the K'NEX launcher.
The set also includes a number of coins for Mario to collect.....
... as well as a flagpole that Mario can hoist when he finishes the course! You can combine this set with the other Mario World building sets for hours of creative play.
