K'NEX Mario Kart Wii: Mario vs. Goombas

Spring 2012 Toys
Ages: 6 & Up
Manufacturer: KNEX Brands
Price: $29.99

If you have children who are admittedly and hopelessly addicted to video games, this K'Nex set is what you want to purchase to get them away from the television or DS. Sometimes I will do anything to get my boys' faces out of video games, and this is just the distraction they need. They have been known to pretend to be in video games while riding their bikes or even eating lunch, so this set actually gives them the visuals they need to perfect their make-believe Mario world. The great thing about the Mario Kart K'Nex products is that they can connect together with each other. We have a couple of these sets now, and the boys can set them up different ways and race their little figures on many different tracks. This gets their minds working and promotes teamwork and creativity. This track comes with a Mario, his own "kart", a track, and an obstacle - the "Goombas". It also includes a couple of collectibles that had my boys squealing with delight. With Mario fanatics like mine, you can't go wrong with this K'Nex set.
