All keychain collectors and Mario fans not having a Mario keychain toy on your keys yet pay attention! There are a lot of cool little Mario keychains available everywhere. We’ve made a selection of the most awesome to be found online so that you can get rid of your current lame keychains. Let’s go!
Mario Sound Drop Gashapon Keychain
Whoever came up with the idea for these Mario keychains deserves a medal. These are drop-shaped Mario keychains that feature a single in-game Super Mario Bros sound when you press on its button. It’s great fun to use this Mario keychain wherever you at, especially when for example you fire the famous Mario jump sound in a busy crowd and have people look around confused as to where the sound came from. Gashapon are the capsule toys that can be bought from vending machines that you can find all over Japan. The word is literally made up of ‘Gasha’, the sound when you turn the vending machine’s crank and ‘Pon’, the sound you hear when the toy drops into the cabinet. Luckily you don’t have to go to Japan to buy a Gashapon Mario keychain as there are many available online. Check the links below for more information on the popular keychains.

Continuing with the Mario sound effects keychains is this classic Mario keychain that features 6 buttons which trigger sound effects from the original Super Mario Bros from 1985. This Mario keychain can be the cherry on the pie for a Mario costume at a dress-up party or when trick-or-treating. Please note that the sounds on this Mario keychain are kind of loud and that the volume can not be adjusted, so parents, take this into consideration when buying this for your child.

We’ve found some more information on the K’NEX Mario Kart building sets, one of the most anticipated new Super Mario toys this year. On their website, K’NEX has featured a sneak peek presentation video of the upcoming Mario Kart race track building sets (see it below) and we’ve become excited to try out the full racing set ourselves.
It seems that the full Mario Kart K’NEX race track construction set comes with race characters included. Even the karts and racers themselves can be build, which makes me wonder if you can give Mario a Luigi costume and vice versa. The racers can then be put in a kart and put on the race track that you’ve built. The Mario Kart race track can be clicked together quite easy, time will tell if the tracks will remain solid and durable enough for intensive playing. We’ve already seen a glimpse of the famous Mario Kart obstacles with rotating fire bars in an early picture. This video expands on the obstacles which you will find in the set, including a Chain Chomp, piranha plant and the infamous Goombas. These can all be manually controlled so you can annoy your opponent’s racer.
The Mario Kart K’NEX race karts have a switch which can be turned on after which the kart will speed off when you put it on the race track. There’s no further remote control involved with which you can accelerate your kart a la the Carrera Mario Kart race track. This also means that your Kart will not fly of the track easily, from the video it seems K’NEX have done an awesome job in having the racers stay on the track, even with all the obstacles hindering your Mario kart characters.
No exact release date has been set yet for the K’NEX Mario Kart race track set. The only K’NEX Super Mario toys that are available now are the individual Mario Kart (and bike) racers which we’ve covered earlier. Amazon has these available now.

Who doesn’t like dress-up parties as a kid? Whether it is Halloween or any themed birthday party, putting on clothes and accessories of your favorite movie, cartoon or comic character can really give you an awesome feeling. Now that Nintendo has presented the Wii U and numerous upcoming Mario titles what better idea than to get yourself a cool Mario costume for upcoming dress-up occassions?
Like this awesome moustached dude on the left right here you can transform into Mario or even Luigi in the blink of an eye with all the Mario costumes available online. The good thing about such a costume is that unlike costumes that are based on a movie (i.e. Kickass) a Mario costume will always be timeless because Mario spans over decades and is instantly recognized by many people. This might even land you on some Mario Candy when you’re out trick-or-treating.
First, if you’re looking for a hat only because you already have the clothing available check out the Mario baseball cap we’ve featured earlier for a cool, casual Mario look.
A complete Mario costume typically comes with a Mario hat included and furthermore contains a Mario moustache, the famous red and blue jumpsuit and in some cases even gloves and an inflatable belly (when you don’t sport one yourself).
