Lego Super Mario Starter Course

Everyone has to start somewhere, and this Super Mario Lego set is a fantastic way to get your younger gamers building. The interactive Mario reads elements of the environment and sets off silly little noises when he stomps on Koopas or picks up coins.

Easy to build and fun to play with, and though the design is for the kids, there’s still plenty for the older Mario fans to marvel at. Plus, if Mario isn’t your first pick, there’s even a Lego Mario Luigi set for you to start with as well.

Lego Super Mario Peach Starter Course

This set features the same interactive elements as the Mario collection but with everyone’s favorite princess in pink, the one and only Peach. The product also includes a Yellow Toad to set off on adventures with the princess, as well as a Lemmy Koopa figure, because every hero needs a villain, right?

Lego Super Mario – Luigi’s Mansion Haunt-and-Seek

If you or your young ones like to play through the haunting adventure known as Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Nintendo Switch, then it might thrill you to know you can bring the adventure into the real world. Build the haunted mansion, escape from King Boo, and use Luigi to interact with the many spooky parts of this amazing Lego set.

Lego Super Mario Nintendo Entertainment System

Yes, Lego is mostly for kids, but sometimes the company creates elaborate and lovingly crafted pieces for collectors as well. The Nintendo Entertainment System Lego set is huge with over 2600 pieces, and we can’t imagine many kids crying out for a Lego version of an NES. But, if you’re a Nintendo fan over the age of thirty, this nerdy purchase is the stuff of dreams and a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Lego Super Mario 64 Question Block

Another large set mainly meant for collectors, the Super Mario 64 Question Block Lego is a thing of beauty (trust me, I own it). It’s filled with fun little details, including tiny versions of several levels from the iconic N64 game, and a miniature Bowser tucked somewhere away. This set looks great on a shelf just as a block, but unfolding it to reveal its many secrets is sure to impress your guests (maybe).

Super Mario – The Mighty Bowser

This Super Mario Lego set features the king of the koopas himself, the mighty Bowser, and fittingly it’s as huge as the fire-breathing villain himself! Featuring a whopping 2807 pieces, Bowser cuts an imposing figure on his own plinth, and can also move around thanks to the interactive nature of the build.

Pose him or show him off, just don’t ever make him cross… Also, The Mighty Bowser currently has a mighty discount, so there’s never been a better time to grab Mario’s blocky nemesis.

Who doesn’t love having a plant around the house? A Lego plant? Even better. This is a personal favorite of the available Mario Lego sets, and it’s a fantastic gift option for the Mario lover in your life.

It’s not as imposing as Bowser and doesn’t require any other sets like some of the Mario Lego options. It’s also not the most complex build, so even if you’re looking for some Lego for a little one, this is a solid option. Unfortunately, it doesn’t breathe fire, but that might be a good thing if you’re putting it in a room with curtains in.
