I can still remember the day I got my first Nintendo. It was not long after it came out and my dad was trying to suck up and probably show off to my mom (my parents are divorced.) I played Mario daily and was automatically hooked on Mario and his friends. Ever since I have always owned a Nintendo system (including Super Nintendo and Wii) and I admit to regularly going back every now and then playing some Mario. I even used to pretend to be Princess Peach! Super Mario and friends are probably some of the most famous characters in the history of video games! It is pretty much impossible to not know who they are if you play video games. In a 1990 poll by Marketing Evaluations, Mario was even found to be more popular and recognizable amongst children than Mickey Mouse!
What is a character without fun toys? Goldie International is the official home for all Nintendo merchandise and they make collectible figurines, plush toys and even radio control cars based off the Nintendo games Super Mario and MarioKart Wii. The toys are the ultimate retro fun and go beyond the game experience. Whether you have a favorite character or just love them all like me, there are some adorable 8-10 inch tall plush dolls available now.
Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Toad and Koopa plush characters are available in the Super Mario Collector Plush 5-pack, all dress in their classic outfits perfect for cuddling, collecting or both! I admit I won’t let my boys grubby fingers on these guys so I put them on display in my office. My little guys though are loving Yoshi and Toad so much that I may have to buy them their own plush dolls! They are a good size and quite reasonable for the price.
