When you were a kid, did you ever get those mini vehicles that you rode around that looked like ATVs and Humvees and stuff? The commercials on TV always looked cool to me, but my parents never got me one because they were understandably expensive. I never thought back on the toys with regret (or really at all) before now — because dang, I’d have loved this real life Mario Kart for kids made by Jakks Pacific.

 

 

This 24V Battery-Powered Ride On goes up to eight miles per hour, with three forward speeds and authentic Mario Kart sound effects and music. It even has large rear wheels to drift! Alas, it doesn’t come with turtle shells or banana peels to hurl, though that would be pretty wild. It goes for the modest, humble price of $400 (Okay, $398.99) — before tax. You can pick it up for a loved child of yours this holiday season, perhaps alongside a gold bullion and a dapper monocle. The kids’ll love it!
