If you have children or grandchildren who play video games, they will love this gift. Toys R Us has become the exclusive retailer for the actual ride-on version of Nintendo’s Super Mario Kart from Jakks Pacific, which is a company that produces a variety of officially licensed Nintendo products. The single-seat race car features a red, white and blue body, dark blue seat and yellow wheel covers. The Super Mario Kart also reproduces sound effects from the Mario Kart video-game series so it’s sure to drive parents crazy. Both indoor and outdoor tires are supplied so kids up to 70 pounds can drive it anywhere (a six-volt battery supplies low-speed power). Super Mario Kart is priced at $200 and can be purchased directly from the Toys R Us store or online at www.toysrus.com.


Ride on, Super Mario
