Cake pops are a great party dessert because they're adorably festive, and the cleanup is easy ”” just throw away the stick! Plus the kids will get a kick out of these koopa shells. (As long as they don't actually kick them. Save it for the game!)
Play.Nintendo's website is a great starting point for throwing the ultimate Mario-themed party. Your kid will have fun making customized Mario Kart 8 and Mario Party 10 themed invitations, complete with stickers, drawing tools and more.
We first saw Super Mario Maker in action while watching the Nintendo World Championships, and have been obsessed ever since. The birthday boy or girl will love playing the practically limitless number of levels with their friends, and you'll love them expressing their creativity when they create brand new levels all on their own.
Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U has so many characters, kart options and levels that your kids will hope the party never ends. Plus, if you go to Play.Nintendo's website, your kids can create the ultimate Mario Kart tournament by downloading/setting up brackets and creating award cards for winners. To paraphrase Toad for a moment, that's the best!
In Super Smash Brothers Wii U, Mario is joined by over 50 characters from different video games in the fight for glory! With so many different character/stage combinations, the kids will never be playing the same game twice.
