Jakks Pacific has partnered with Nintendo to launch the first ever Nintendo licensed Mario Kart ride-on.

Known as the Super Mario Kart Ride-On, the vehicle is the real life counterpart to Mario's kart as seen in the Mario Kart 7 video game.

While it doesn't come with a barrage of Red Shells, Banana Skins or speed-boosting mushrooms, it does feature the full range of sound effects from the popular game.

The ride-on will be available throughout the UK from autumn/winter this year and will sit within Jakks Pacific's portfolio of 6V ride-ons.

Jakks Pacific's Ken Goodison, said: "For the first time ever, you can be in the driver seat of your very own Nintendo Kart.

"It's an exciting little runner that we expect to sit competitively within other 6V ride-ons and with it being so relevant to the Nintendo Mario Kart, it should do very well."

The ride-on also allows kids (and undoubtedly some adults) to switch between on-road and off-road tyres.
