Make sure you supervise your children; those blue shells come out of nowhere.

Toymaker Jakks Pacific, through a partnership with Nintendo, will be adding the new “Super Mario Kart Ride-On” to its collection of 6V ride-ons, in stores on March 7. For the first time ever, kids will actually get the chance to take a spin in Mario’s ride.

Based on Mario’s kart from the Nintendo 3DS title Mario Kart 7, the ride-on is equipped with a range of sound effects from the game as well as on-road and off-road tires that can be switched out.

"It's an exciting little runner that we expect to sit competitively within other 6V ride-ons and with it being so relevant to the Nintendo Mario Kart, it should do very well," said Jakks Pacific’s Ken Goodison.

Mario's kart is currently up for pre-order from Toys "R" Us for $200 USD and is anticipated to hit the UK by fall/winter of this year.

I should buy a couple of these for my future children to play with. I could get a set of 12 and have a track in our yard.

When I saw the headline I thought this was a new feature in Mario Kart 8 where one car could "ride on" another car to merge them together to make a Double Dash-esque kart. :(

Could be a cool piece of "furniture" for a bachelor pad.

I thought it's something terrible because of "Make sure you supervise your children" lol
But this ride-on car is worth the price. My friend had to buy something for his nephew and this was the first thing we saw at the mall.
