K’NEX teams with Nintendo, makes Mario Kart toys

Remember K’NEX? Those crazy construction toys? I’m a Lego guy, but I always thought these were fun too. My issue is that I never knew where to go with these starting out? While Legos easily lend themselves to automobiles and buildings, I was never sure what to do with K’NEX.

Now I know, thanks to a new partnership with Nintendo, I know what I’ll do: I’ll build a Bowser. Now you’ll be able to build Mario, Luigi, and Princess with the new officially licensed sets coming from K’NEX in 2011. Sets will include many of the characters you love as well as build-able vehicles and obstacles from Mario Kart Wii.

And for the record…
