What It Is
The Flying Cloud Building Set is a 450-piece set that builds a Super Mario 3D-themed course. The course recreates some of the most familiar obstacles and items from the different levels of Super Mario 3D Land.
Why It’s Fun
This is a large set that is filled with familiar items from the video game. There are platforms that go up and down, floating clouds and mushroom platforms. There are also items scattered along the course like coins, magic mushrooms, a power up block and even a hidden room filled with coins. When Mario gets to the end, he can land on the green and raise his flag to end the level. All of these elements let kids recreate the fun and action of the video game.
Mario fans and collectors will love the Mario and two exclusive figures - Propeller Box Mario and a Tailed Goomba.
Who It’s For
This set is for K'NEX and Mario fans, ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions are good and it should take most people around 2 to 3 hours to complete.
Although there are lots of launchers and spring-loaded platforms, this set is really more about pretend playing than it is an actual course to get Mario through.
