Please help Santa figure out how to get my kid the thing he really really wants. It relates to a Super Mario game, which I know little about...
My son is five. His only exposure to the Mario games is via this very retro online version
of what I think must be close to the "original" Super Mario Game.
What my son is requesting is basically a Mario playset. He wants the figures from this game and some blocks, etc. so that he can play Mario without needing to have the pesky computer involved.
The closest I can find to what he's asking for is this playset on Amazon
, but the more I look at it the more I think it's not going to be right. In particular I'm concerned that the figures he really wants (the turtles, the little fuzzy things he calls "badgers", the round brown things) are underrepresented, but I don't know enough about the game (and the Wikipedia articles
have been surprisingly unhelpful) to know what they're called to find them.
Can you help? I've searched eBay, I've looked on Amazon, toy stores, Toys-r-us, craft sites, you name it, but I'm really dealing with a case of I don't know anywhere near enough about this game to really know what I'm looking for. (And, truthfully, neither does he.) I can probably sort out painting some gold boxes, etc. for the "playset" part of it, but if you're able to point me in the correct direction on the figures (or say "yep, that set on Amazon has all you need") that would be super helpful.
Santa thanks you in advance.
