Super Mario LEGO

Two of the biggest names in the toy world have joined forces to launch one of the most exciting LEGO collaborations ever – bringing Super Mario to life in a whole new bricktastic way.

Designers from LEGO and Nintendo have created Super Mario LEGO – and it’s like nothing we’ve seen before. It’s a completely new product that combines traditional LEGO bricks and an interactive LEGO Mario figure with an LCD screen and sounds who collects coins in real-life game levels.

Hey, it’s-a me, Mario!
