Recreate Mario Kart moments with this life-size ride-on


Watch out for banana peels

For years, I've been playing the various Mario Kart games and wishing I could smack my buddy with a Koopa shell. It comes with the competitive spirit, inflamed by getting hit with the blue shell for NINETY SEVENTH TIME, DAMMIT.

Ahem, sorry. Bad memories floating back up.

Anyway, thanks to a partnership between Jakks Pacific and Nintendo, fans will be able to purchase the Super Mario Kart Ride-On. Designed to look like Mario's kart from Mario Kart 7, the 6V ride-on will have several sound effects from the game as well as the ability to switch between on-road and off-road tires. According to a listing on Toys "R" Us, the kart is set for release March 7 in the States for $199.99. It'll be available in the UK "this autumn/winter."

Man, I wish I could've had this as a kid. I can only imagine the kind of hell I'd raise around my neighborhood if I had this bad boy. Granted, I probably wouldn't be able to get very far with a 6V kart, but I'd sure as hell be as big of a pain in the ass as I could manage. Somebody, please, get this for their kid and take pictures!
