Young kids don’t know how to do much. They can eat. They can poop. They can watch cartoons. And they can push stuff back and forth. Whoa, wait, push stuff back and forth?! That sounds like a job for Hot Wheels! And wouldn’t you know it, a Mario Kart Hot Wheels die-cast toy line is on the way from Mattel and Nintendo this summer!
But no, you don’t have to be 3 years old to enjoy just going “vroom vroom” with a toy car. These 1:64 scale bad boys are for everybody, and they will incorporate a lot of the Mario Kart family: “At launch the Hot Wheels Mario Kart Replica Die-cast assortment will include Mario, Yoshi, Luigi and Bowser with many additional characters coming soon such as Princess Peach, Koopa Troopa and Toad.” Hot Wheels Mario Kart Circuit Track Set will be available for $79.99, and Piranha Plant Slide Track Set and Thwomp Ruins Track Set add-ons will be available.
Some of these Mario Kart vehicles will be available to purchase at San Diego Comic Con, if you’re headed there. If not, they’ll probably be popping up in a Walmart or a Target near you soon enough. By the power of Mattel and Nintendo, you shall never go hungry for merchandise to buy.
