Race to the Finish with Your Favorite Mario Characters

Constructed with 182 genuine K'NEX pieces and sturdy plastic tracking , the Mario and Bowser Ice Race Building Set is fun and simple to put together. Mario and Bowser figurines sit inside their own race cars, which are decked out with colorful stickers and real rubber wheels. Four AAA batteries (not included) provide the power for these racers, propelling them around the ice-themed track and over a built-in jump!

But be careful: two devious obstacles can get in the way of victory. A Shy Guy snowboarder can swing across the track at your command, or you can launch a penguin from the moveable K'NEX ramp.

Hands-on Construction with K'NEX Pieces

Built with genuine K'NEX, the Ice Race building set is as fun to construct as it is to play with. The plastic track components easily snap together to create the racetrack, and children can use their creativity to build and expand Mario's world with the K'NEX pieces. Two included sticker sheets let you decorate the track with colorful Mario- and racing-themed art.

Expand the Fun with Additional Sets

The Mario and Bowser Ice Race set is compatible with many other K'NEX Nintendo Building Sets (sold separately), so you can expand and customize your track with additional sets. Various other Nintendo characters are available for the full experience, including Toad, Diddy Kong, Luigi, and Yoshi.

Race Your Friends

Our testers found the set simple to build following the included instructions, though the Penguin launcher was slightly more challenging than the rest of the set. Decorating the components with stickers offers some creative opportunities, and the battery powered race cars travel around the track with ease. The K'NEX components can be expanded with other sets to extend the life of this kit, and offers kids the freedom to create larger structures.

Nintendo Mario and Bowsers Ice Race Building Set

This took about an hour to put together, including adding all the stickers.
Everyone in my family (aged 8-adult), including myself, had a lot of fun playing with this set. The instructions say from 6 and up and I agree because there are lots of small pieces and the younger kids should be supervised while the track is being put together.
Although we would play this for minutes at a time it is a toy that we all go back to throughout the day. As a parent, I like this factor as the longevity of this building set will outlast a lot of other toys around the house. I also have the K'nex Fire Challenge set and I am going to see if I can combine them for more fun.
The cars take 2 triple A batteries which are NOT included. You need a very small screw driver to undo the screw and slide the battery lid forward; the cars can go off track which adds to the playability of this set.
Here is a video of the track in use.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Or maybe I should say they had a blast incorporating it into Nintendo Mario Circuit Ultimate Building Set. They tore up part of their existing track and added the ice obstacles into their already existent track. this makes a decent addition to an existing set of track and I can only assume that it would stand alone fine as well, although the addition of two more cars greatly added to the excitement.

Pros
+ Construction took quite a while, keeping boys occupied
+ Mario Theme is perfect
+ Mario Characters are spot on
+ Lots of laughter and activity keeping four cars going on the track

Cons
- Batteries in the cars run down very fast.
- Not as flexible as Legos
- Takes up a lot of room and not simple to break down and throw back together.

Summary
All in all, this is a very good set although it might be small as a stand alone. It is nice to see the tracks get combined and recombined. It was worth it just to see the excitement of the boys building and the laughter of them chasing errant cars that jumped the track.

I know, you're thinking what I'm thinking, how fun can a little oval track be? Well, my two little boys have been playing off and on with this for a solid two weeks, maybe more, and they still get a kick out of it. It's pretty easy to assemble, and the instructions are in pictures so they're universal. If your kid is old enough, maybe he/she can even do it by him/herself. The only trick is, there are two plastic wheels and two rubber wheels for each car, and the rubber wheels have to go on the back for good traction. Once you get this right, you'll have the cars going around the track really fast. And the cars can go on regular floors too, for even more fun. So I do highly recommend this toy.

My boys who are 6,6, and 5 really had lots of fun putting this together and playin with it. It does take awhile to get together but they really loved doing this as they like building stuff. Instructions were easy to follow. They also love racing the cars on the track but had more fun playing with them on the ground as the track is only wide enough for one car. Overall a great toy for children who love Mario, racing, or putting things together. It would be lots more fun if the track was wider and it had more cars for all of my kids but I guess that why they want you to buy the other sets and put them together.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been playing Mario titles, including the Kart series since they were first introduced. Now that I'm an adult, I still enjoy video games and collect video game related items. I thought that this would be a great addition to my collection.

The interesting thing about this set, that I didn't realize until I received it, is that it is K'nex. It's officially licensed Nintendo and has it all over the box, but it is a K'nex set. K'nex is essentially somewhere between Lego and Tinker Toys, and I was never much of a fan of their products. However, for the most part, this seems to be a decent set overall.

The qualities I'm pleased with is the overall packaging and design of the set. The figures and karts are well made, the little squid and star are cool. The track design is nothing spectacular. The little jump in the middle is kind of cool, but the track is shorter than I thought it was going to be. Shooting the Penguin is a fun concept. Overall, as an item to put up on my shelf and add to my collection, I'm relatively pleased.

In terms of what most people are going to buy this for, a toy for them or their children, it falls flat on its face. The plastic is pretty light weight. If someone were to trip over the set, it probably wouldn't live to tell the tale. As mentioned, the squid and star are cool, but serve no real purpose in terms of actually playing with the set. The BIGGEST problem, as many others have stated, is that this racing set doesn't allow you to race. I assumed this would be similar to the slot car sets we raced as kids, but it's not. What makes it even more frustrating is the picture on the box clearly shows a wide track with two cars racing. The track isn't even big enough to allow one car to pass the other.
