If you have a little Mario Brothers fan on your shopping list this season you can’t go wrong with the Nintendo Mario and Bowsers Ice Racing Set. Made my K’NEX, kids will have a great time putting it together and an even better time playing with it when they are done. Toy sets like this that are fun but teach children skills like building things are a great option. There are 182 pieces of tracking made of sturdy plastic so it is challenging enough to take some time to put together but not so hard that they will give up and never play with it. Sticker sheets let kids decorate it they way that they want.
Once the set is put together, the kids can race two figurines – Bowser and Mario – around the track in the race cars. The cars have real rubber tires and stickers that are fun to decorate with. The battery powered cars (4 AAA batteries required) can be manoeuvred around the track and even go over the cook ice jump.
