The new range of LEGO Super Mario Bros products has been released! The range includes a starter course, ten expansion sets, four power-up packs, a character pack and a Nintendo Entertainment System.
The NES set authentically reproduces the original console with a controller and a cartridge, in addition to a retro style TV. It can be combined with the Mario figure from the starter course to activate the TV's interactive features.
The Starter Course comprises 231 pieces and features a LEGO Mario figure that gives over 100 different reactions to movement via the LCD screens in his eyes, mouth and belly. Also included is a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the video game.
Players earn virtual coins moving Mario from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole and the bricks can be re-arranged to create various new levels. A free LEGO Super Mario app is also available for enhanced play.
Ten different expansion sets are available, including Bowser's Castle. Each set provides new challenges and settings, with various characters from the game also included, such as Yoshi and Thwomp.
The recommended age is 18+ for the Nintendo Entertainment System, while the minimum recommended age for the other products varies from 6 to 8. Some items require batteries, which are not included.
The LEGO Super Mario Bros range is available to purchase from both LEGO and Nintendo's online stores;
