It’s Mario Kart in real life! Get busy, really busy, building your own working track with Nintendo Mario Circuit Ultimate Building Set. This set uses 665 K’Nex building blocks to build a giant 5 foot wide track upon which you can really race Mario and Luigi. That’s 22 feet of track if laid out end to end (but why would you do that?) It’s huge:

That’s what she said. The Karts themselves are motorized and battery powered, so they can really zip around the twists, turns, and jumps of the track just like in the Wii game. Watch out for the included obstacles: sliding Piranha Plant, moving chain chom, and swinging Goombas. There are other sets and additional track pieces you can purchase too if you want to go even larger- if 5 feet isn’t quite big enough for you. Fun stuff.
