Jakks Pacific has revealed the first officially licensed Mario Kart ride-on vehicle for children. The company was approved last year to create major toys based on Nintendo franchises. The Mario Kart ride-on is available for pre-order at Toys “R” Us for $200 and is due to be released sometime in March.
“It’s an exciting little runner that we expect to sit competitively within other 6V ride-ons, and with it being so relevant to the [Nintendo’s] Mario Kart, it should do very well.”
“Nintendo is a classic brand rich in content that appeals to today’s kids, parents and collectors alike, and we are excited to partner together to bring their video game heritage to life in the toy aisle. We are looking forward to expanding our top-tier roster of properties through this comprehensive licensing deal, which covers a wide array of category rights for almost all Nintendo properties and for nearly all worldwide territories.”
