With the release of Nintendo's wildly popular Super Mario Maker in September 2015, it’s never been easier for fans of the famous plumber to create their very own custom levels. And, now, Nintendo wants to bring those customization opportunities to the kitchen with some awesome magnets.
Created by Paladone, Nintendo has licensed out sweet Super Mario Bros. magnets that can transform fans' fridges into a Goomba-infested oasis. For fans who can't shell out for a Wii U to play Super Mario Maker, perhaps investing in these magnets may be the perfect compromise. The set collects 80 different magnets which feature iconic elements and characters from the original game like shells, stars, coins, Goombas, and even ? Blocks. Paladone even focused on creating, “level details such as brick platforms and sewer tunnels, so you can create brand new levels in the exact style of the classic originals.”
The creators promise fans they can, “create new Super Mario levels with this brilliant fridge magnet set based on the legendary video game character. With an array of different character and icon magnets, build your own Mushroom Kingdom right in your kitchen, and give your fridge a colourful new power-up!”
With these magnets, it seems like fans can basically construct Super Mario Bros. levels for their fridges and let loose. You want to pin up a grocery list with a wayward Fire Flower? Go for it. Are you interested in running a line of Piranha Plants across your freezer? Go ahead, feel free to stick them wherever. With all its unique pieces, this Super Mario Bros. magnet set gives fans the freedom to create game levels they’ve only dreamed about.
Released in 1983, Super Mario Bros. debuted on Nintendo’s NES and revived a failing game market while popularizing the side-scrolling genre. The game solidified Mario’s reputation as a bonafide hero as it features Luigi and him romping across the Mushroom Kingdom to save Princess Peach from the the title’s now-infamous villain, Bowser. Now, with over 30 years of history trailing behind the franchise, Super Mario Bros. stands as one of the most influential video games of all-time.
For $14, fans can bring a little piece of gaming history home and celebrate Mario's legacy with a set of super cool collectors magnets. Just be sure to watch out for any stray Koopa Troopas!
