Lego Super Mario is coming! I am not sure if kids or adults were more excited when this was announced. I grew up playing Nintendo and Legos. This is the perfect combination to make into something new for kids to explore and build. I see tons of creative juices flowing already once this comes out. So when does this come out and what is it actually?
There is no official release yet. Lego’s website is saying later this year. I predict closer to the holiday season. I can also see this being one of the hottest toys to buy for Christmas. So you better go to https://www.lego.com/en-us/campaigns/supermario and enter your email so you know when this officially drops. For my youth programs folks, this is an awesome activity for your kids to design and have contests with. It may be a little pricey, but I can see a specific club around building legos, and integrating this game into your group. Lego advertises this product as…”Collecting coins, spinning through challenges and completing levels – it’s all part of the new LEGO® Super Mario™ play experience. Designers from Nintendo and the LEGO Group have worked together to bring LEGO Mario™ to life in a way that completely reimagines the world of physical LEGO building.” Perfect STEM/STEAM activity as kids can design and work together in teams. Since the product is still new, from watching the video, it appears that there are tons of variations you can build and create. The video game is coming to life! What a cool concept and activity for any youth program. Putting kids and staff in spaces to be creative!
I have included the promo video below.
