11-year-old’s Mario collection is bigger than yours

When Oscar Bown was five-years-old, he fell in love with a plumber. It’s then, in 2004, that Oscar starting collecting memorabilia from Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. series. Six years later, he’s literally buried under the stuff.

“Today his collection has over 1000 unique items collected from all over the world,” says his dad, Mark.

He’s not exaggerating, either. Oscar and his father recently posted a video on YouTube that’s nearly five minutes long, and features some of the coolest Mario merchandise available. Oscar’s favorites, his father tells us, are his Mario Kart 64 action figures. And like Scrooge McDuck basking in his riches, check our gallery to see Oscar under a massive pile of his Mario treasures.
