Last week, The Toy Book saw a sneak peek of the new K’nex Mario Kart Wii Building Set collection at the Nintendo World Store in New York City. At the launch event, there were tons of building activities, plus a special opportunity to take a photo with Mario and Luigi!
The K’nex Mario Kart Wii Building Sets include characters, buildable and interconnecting tracks, vehicles, and obstacles from the Mario Kart Wii game. The more sets that a child collects, the bigger and more complex tracks he or she can build for Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi.
The Mario, Yoshi, and Luigi Standard Kart Building Sets allow children to build standard karts from the game. Once the creation is completed, the karts feature a pull-back motor allowing them to race off. Accessories, such as the mushroom from the game, are included as well.
