Like most of your children all 3 of mine are HUGE Mario Bros. fans!!! They absolutely love all things Mario. We have the games, clothing, toys, etc that have to do with Mario and his gang.
My children were beyond excited when K'NEX started making Mario Bros. building sets. We currently have a couple and just added a new set to our collection called the Super Mario Bros. U Layer Cake Desert Building Set.
Each time we get a set all 3 of my children like to get in on the fun of building. My children are ages 11, 9 and 4. With my oldest two they are able to build the sets by themselves but I sit with them so I am able to help my 4 year old daughter so she is able to contribute to building each set we have.
They is total excitement throughout the entire building process. They must get that from me. I am literally like a little kid each time we build one. I get just as impatient to see what it will look like when we get it finished. It is great that we work together as a team to build each set because it makes the building process go twice as fast.
This newest Mario set is one of the coolest by far. We built it extremely fast and the kids could not wait to try it out. It literally has moving pieces throughout the set as well as some new characters that we have not seen in our other sets.
The characters included in the set are:
* Fire Mario
My children absolutely love Pokey and Waddlewing!
Pokey is a spikey cactus and we are not quite sure what Waddlewing is but my kids say he is a flying squirrel. Waddlewing is a Limited Edition character that is included with this set.
It also comes with coins that Mario can collect as he goes through the set and a fire plant that he can collect too.
It is recommended for ages 8+ and comes with 330 pieces.
