Since this is a kid's toy, I wanted to write this review based on my son's personal opinion. However, when I asked what he thought of the Nintendo Super Mario Mini R/C Kart, he simply yelled, "I love it!" before running off to play in his bedroom. Therefore, I will point out exactly what he loves about this toy despite his all encompassing statement.
The Nintendo Super Mario Mini R/C Kart looks exactly like the racecar in the Mario Kart video game. Mario is perfect in his dapper red hat with matching overalls -- completed with his signature moustache. You can tell that each detail was made painstakingly accurate to hold the attention of a younger crowd. Plus, the racecar is easy to steer and runs on pure long-lasting battery power.
While it's true I'm a serious collector, I'm a devoted father first -- one that could never become upset with his kids if they played with any of the collectable toys. It warmed my heart to hear my little boy's excited giggles as the Nintendo Super Mario Mini R/C Kart raced under the kitchen table. I fully intend to get Mario's counterpart, Yoshi, so we can both bond over our Kart skills.
