New Meaning to Super Mario Brothers 3D

New Meaning to Super Mario Brothers 3D


My daughters love playing together but their personalities are completely the opposite. One likes video games and all things electronic. The other likes singing, dancing and imaginative play. K’NEX merged their worlds with the Super Mario Bros 3D Bowser’s Building Set.

It took them several days working off and on to get the set assembled. That provided them with quality time as they pieced it all together. Once they were done, I was surprised how they gave life to the play set!

So much so that they asked to record a video of how it works. When I sat down to watch them (before we recorded), I wasn’t sure they were moving in the right direction. Then I realized something… it didn’t matter. It’s imaginative play. They’re offline. They’re playing together. They’re laughing, smiling and having fun.

That’s worth the price of admission right there. Watch their video and you be the judge… Do they look like they’re having fun?

If you think this set would make a great addition to your family, be sure grab one on Amazon or eBay. It was a Toys R Us exclusive!

  1. I love it when my boys play together. They are so different but if we find an activity they love like this Mario set, we stick with it!

  3. I love that you said “it didn’t matter. It’s imaginative play. They’re offline. They’re playing together. They’re laughing, smiling and having fun.”: So many kids get caught up in video games, they forget to play with hands on toys! This one looks fun!

    Now that is absolutely amazing. I love to play Super Mario Brothers and I never even knew K’Nex had released this. This is definitely a whole new perspective to the game and I think I’m going to have to try it.

  6. oh wow! It looks like a lot of fun! I checked out the toy and waah it is too expensive for me 🙁

  7. I know quite a few boys that would completely freak over this building set! And not all of them are kids! lol. That is awesome!

  8. Yes! It does look like they are having fun for both of their creative genius! That rocks. My kids are different from each other in temperament and age, but they would play well together with this unique set for hours. Very cool.

    What a super fun video, I bet the kids had a blast making that! I didn’t even know that Super Mario Bros had a Knex line of toys!

  10. Shelly says:

    I wish our toys could have been this cool when I was a kid. I grew up playing Mario as the Nintendo NES was the first video game system I ever had.

  11. That is so awesome! I wish they would of come out with that while I was a kid playing super mario brothers!!

  12. What a wonderful moment captured on camera. Your girls are exceptional!
    You are right: offline and creating together. Priceless

    Great Video and you are so right… it doesn’t matter at all as long as they are having fun.

    Imaginative doesn’t have boundaries, or at least it shouldn’t. Good for you for recognizing it. Your family looks fun. 🙂

  16. We have this set at home and the kids just love it. It did take a while to get it put together, but it was well worth it.

  17. Ben says:

    Holy crap! I’m geeking out over here! I NEED this under the tree this year. I’m a forever geek/gamer, and I think this is totally bad @$$.

  18. How cool! I love the idea of building a Super Mario structure. K’Nex really is the coolest.

  19. Daisy says:

    It sounds awesome that this kept them so busy. My son would have fun too.

  20. Debi says:

    I am showing the kids this set up the next time they want to use the Knex. It will be neat to give them a new idea.

  21. April says:

    I love that it is not pink and girly. Very cool

  22. Mellisa says:

    What a cute video. I am a huge fan of Mario so we will be trying this out with our Knex.

  23. WHAT? That is insane! I want one of these. My kids would be super happy

  24. Crystal says:

    You’re right, they do look like they’re having a blast! My kids love to build, so I know they would love this underneath the tree this Christmas.
