Those who grew up with the original Super Mario Bros. will never forget the moment they discovered the pipes weren’t just barriers but portals to another world and that some lines jumped you ahead several levels.

Luckily, we have selected a wide range of gifts for Mario-mad kids of all ages, from plushies and playsets for the little ones to complex LEGO sets and cool threads for the big kids.

No matter what you pick, we have ensured that all options are the best. So as long as you know your giftee reasonably well, you should be able to find something here to make them jump into the air, fist held high.

Frequently Asked Questions About Super Mario Toys

🙋 What is Super Mario, and why do kids love it?

Today, Super Mario is a massive game franchise that spans various genres and platforms. However, it all started with Super Mario Bros., a simple yet constantly surprising platform game involving shimmying up pipes and collecting coins. But despite all the developments, the spirit of Super Mario remains the same.

Even now, many games starring Mario and his friends are all about exploration and experimentation, and their simple yet open-ended nature keeps kids coming back. Super Mario games feature themes kids can recognize from the real world, then take these in exciting and magical directions. This combination seems to be the sweet spot.

🙋 How is Super Mario still popular? 

The first Super Mario Bros. game came out in 1985 and was an instant hit. Today, nearly 40 years later, Super Mario is still one of the most famous names in the gaming world. So what secret sauce has allowed it to maintain its status? 

A key factor could be the simplicity of Mario’s character design (paired, of course, with consistently excellent game mechanics). Despite continuous updates that keep Super Mario games on the cutting edge, our favorite Italian plumber still has the same look. 

This consistency means playing Super Mario always feels familiar, even when the graphics and gameplay possibilities are lightyears ahead of what they were in the 80s.

So… What Super Mario Toy Should I Get?

As usual, that depends entirely on the Super Mario fan you are buying for. If they are a preschooler who can’t get enough toys, they’ll probably love one of the playsets or action figures. But if they’re an older kid who finds that kind of thing childish, there are many options for clothing items and room decor that might be more up their alley.

Please let us know if you think we left any amazing Super Mario toys out. We did our best to assemble many toys and gifts, but we might have missed something wonderful.
