I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t play Nintendo Mario Kart when they were a kid and let’s be honest, even though we may be grown-ups now, we wouldn’t pass on the opportunity to own a real-life Mario Kart. Well now you can!

Jakks Pacific has teamed up with Nintendo to create a battery-powered, child-sized Mario Kart. The car comes with all the sounds effects that featured on the kart from the Mario Kart 7 video game and can be driven with either on-road or off-road tyres.

The downside of this news is that this little racer will only be available in the United Kingdom and has been designed for use by children, however at only 5ft 2in, I think I could get away with it! Expect to see Mario Kart taking to the streets around June this year.
