If you're searching for a gift for a child, toys are the obvious go-to choice. Super Mario toys are some of the most popular items on our site for kids and collectors alike. It's easy to see why, because bringing Nintendo video game action into the real world is an excellent thought. And it's something we're sure anyone who's ever played will appreciate. Take a look at these ideas for Mario plush figures and Super Mario diorama sets to get your toy shopping started!
Super Mario Plush Toys
Are plushies our favorite toys? We won't deny it! Toy fads come and go over the years, but a soft, huggable plush is always a great option. Both for kids to play with and for adults to collect and display as Super Mario decorations. So, when it comes to a fandom like Nintendo, we make sure our digital shelves are fully stocked with the coolest Super Mario plush toys available!
Serious Super Mario fans will want to start with a Mario Plush and a Luigi Plush, obviously. Each one features a modern rendition of the character in huggable plush form. Once you have the Super Mario Bros together, there's no limit to the possibilities for your collection. You can add brick and mushroom plush toys for gameplay staples, friends like Yoshi or Donkey Kong, or get bad guys with plushies like a Bowser Plush!
Super Mario Playsets
With so much going on in the digital world today, it's always a great idea to give kids options for activities that don't involve screen time. And when it comes to kids who've been playing tons of Super Mario, a great way to get them to log off is with a Super Mario playset! Super Mario 2.5" playsets have been a fan favorite for kiddos and collectors alike. We highly recommend them both for play and display!
Super Mario diorama sets and playsets from Jakks are hugely popular, and we've got some great options available right here at FUN.com. These interactive sets provide a variety of characters and pieces from famous places in the Mushroom Kingdom, which means they offer lots of ways to creatively play. The Acorn Plains 5 Figure Set (pictured) is a great gift set to start with to get a Mario figure. Then be sure to shop all of our Super Mario sets to build up the character roster for even more fun!
LEGO Super Mario Toys
The Lego Super Mario theme launched onto the Lego scene in a huge way in 2020. It was a big deal, and not just because Nintendo was getting their first brick-based characters in Lego form. The collaboration of Nintendo and Lego created a new form of play. Because it's basically a playable video game in the real world!
These unique Lego sets feature figures and pieces that vary a great deal from traditional Lego pieces, while still staying true to the interlocking brick principles that make the toys a fan-favorite worldwide. These innovative sets feature pieces to build real-life versions of 2D Super Mario levels. The pieces in each set are rebuildable to create new levels, and each of the Super Mario Expansion Sets are cross-compatible. This means you can buy multiple sets to make expanded levels that feature all the fun gameplay from Super Mario video games!
Perhaps the most incredible part of these sets is that the interactivity doesn't stop with the brick building. The Super Mario Figurine is powered up! Larger than traditional Minifigures, it features LED displays, sound effects, a scanner, and Bluetooth connectivity. This high-tech Mario figure is what lets the player interactively take on each course. It reads codes on action pieces to change Mario's expressions, collect coins, and battle bad guys.
If you're shopping Lego Super Mario for a kiddo or yourself, you'll want to start with the Mario Starter Course Set. But we totally recommend getting an expansion set right away to keep the fun going for hours! Let's take a closer look at our top Lego Mario Expansion Sets to add friends, foes, and lots of exciting gameplay twists to the Nintendo brick fun.
LEGO Super Mario Toad's Treasure Set
After buying the Mario Starter Course, our top expansion is to add a stop in Toad Village. With this Super Mario Toad's Treasure Hunt Expansion Set, you'll get Toad and Toadette character figures, along with 2 Cheep Cheeps and a Goomba. You'll build the village with a toad house, a tree, and a treasure chest. Sliding and rotating platforms and 10 action pieces add creative fun to the Super Mario gameplay action.
This set is designed with video game-style play in mind. The player controls Mario to find the 1, 2, 3 Blocks. When Mario jumps on them in the correct order, the player wins bonus digital coins! There's no limit to the gameplay with this rebuildable set since it works as a standalone set, provided you have the Mario figurine from the starter pack. But it fully integrates with the starter set, and all of the expansions, too, so that players can create expansive and interactive game storylines.
When you're ready to construct the Toad Village course, just connect with the Lego Super Mario app. It's available on mobile devices for digital building instructions and unique viewing tools. The app works great for kids to help them develop problem-solving skills! Fun for all players and kids aged 8 and up, the Super Mario sets are great for solo gameplay that entertains for hours on end or for competitive play with friends and family.
LEGO Bowser's Castle
When you or your kiddo want to really up the action, you'll have to take things to the next level. You're going to want Mario to face off in a boss battle, just like in the Super Mario video games! The best Lego Super Mario set for that is the Bowser's Castle Lego Super Mario Expansion Set. This epic castle set includes a ferocious Bowser figure and figures for Dry Bones, Boo, and Lava Bubble.
You'll get ready for play by building Bowser's castle. It's packed full of details, like castle towers with flag poles, a stone Bowser, and flame and lava pieces. The action of this set comes from dynamic pieces, with rotating and shaking platforms and hidden blocks Mario needs to find to win the boss battle. It's fully rebuildable, too, for Lego fans to put their own spin on the classic Nintendo scene!
You'll need the Starter Course Mario figure to get into the gameplay, and once the action starts, strap in for fun! You'll have to guide the figure through flipping and balancing challenges to defeat Boo and Dry Bones. When it comes time to take on Bowser, Mario needs to stomp on flippers to raise Bowser's arms to find the hidden blocks and shake the bridge until he falls over and is defeated! When combined with the Starter set and any number of Super Mario expansions, Bowser's Castle sets up the most creative and engaging possibilities!
Super Mario Clothes
Sometimes, playing your favorite games and collecting toys and figures just isn't enough for your gaming fandom. And, if that's the case for you when it comes to Super Mario, we have an easy solution. Just get some Mario apparel in your closet! We have Nintendo clothing for all ages, and there's plenty of Super Mario t-shirts and apparel to choose from. Take a look at these top options for some trendy Mario fashion takes!
Super Mario Shirt
Mario has done lots of big things over the years. Whether rescuing Princess Peach, saving the Mushroom Kingdom, or even super smashing all his Nintendo Bros, he's done it all. But even with all of those exploits, there's one job that Mario is known for. And that'd be the respect he garners as a Mario Kart champion!
If you're a fan of that fast-karting action and are looking for a cool way to show it off, we'd start by suggesting an apparel upgrade. And this Mario Kart Camp Shirt is the perfect choice! This comfy shirt features an all-over print of your favorite Mario Kart drivers piloting their colorful karts. All-cotton, the shirt has the classic styling of a short-sleeve button-up, which means it's an excellent, casual apparel choice for any activity.
Super Mario Opposuit
The Opposuits brand has been making big-time waves in the world of men's fashion. And that's thanks to their signature creation, their amazingly outlandish line of men's suits! Opposuits feature amazing prints and patterns that have led to men shelving their black and charcoal suits in favor of bold colors and epic designs. And now, they're even creating suits that feature fan-favorite pop culture themes. When they teamed up with Nintendo, it was a safe bet that a Mario suit would be available before long. This Men's Super Mario Suit is the result of their efforts!
Mario fans who have to ditch their gaming attire for an occasion where a jacket and tie are required will love this stylish suit. It features an all-over print of Mario along with other memorable characters and critters from the video game franchise.
