This Life-Sized, Drivable Mario Kart Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

JAKKS Pacific and Nintendo have teamed up to create the ‘Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle’, a life-sized, drivable kart based on the popular video game Mario Kart 7.

The battery-powered kart features forward and reverse driving, on and-off road tires, a seat belt and a brake pedal system. It has a maximum speed of 2.5 meters-per-hour and even comes loaded with sound effects from the video game.

However, if you’re thinking of getting one for yourself, note that it has a weight capacity of 70 pounds and is intended for kids only.

The ‘Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle’ retails at US$199.99 and is available for pre-order from the Toys “R” Us site, with stocks estimated to ship from 7 March.
