What It Is

The New Super Mario Bros. 2: Desert Building Set from K'NEX is a 221-piece set that builds a course, which is inspired by the desert level in the game, New Super Mario Bros. 2. The set also comes with Fire Mario, two Gold Goombas, and a Gold Block that can be attached to Mario.

The Mario figure comes with a jump disc base that can be used with the launcher to propel Mario around the course. The course has multiple platforms and levels, a spot for the Goombas, coins for Mario to gather, and the flag at the end of every level, just like in the game.

Is It Fun?

This is a great way to bring the digital characters and environments into the real world, which allows kids to further enjoy their favorite Nintendo characters.

Who It’s For

The set is intended for Mario fans, ages 8 and up, but we think kids as young as 6 will also enjoy it. Older fans and collectors might want this one for their Mario collections.

What To Be Aware Of

The directions are pretty good and putting the whole thing together took us an hour.
