Block and Time Block, a shaking bridge, plus Bowser, Boo, Dry Bones and Lava Bubble figures. Fun-packed app Intuitive Instructions PLUS, featuring cool viewing tools to make building even more fun, is available for this set on the free LEGO Super Mario app. The app also has tips on creative ways to rebuild and play and is a safe platform for fans to share ideas. Unlimited gameplay Collectible LEGO Super Mario sets bring a family-favorite character into the real world and are great for group competitions or solo gameplay.

A little disappointed Mario..
" First, let me start off by saying I love Lego. We've bought our son a number of Mario sets, most recent was Bowser's castle. In general I haven't been impressed with the Mario sets and didn't feel the need to comment until this one. First, these sets are not as playable as advertised and the main reason for this is they are constantly falling apart. The connection "bridges" or paths never stay in place so you are constantly reconnecting them. You'll need a hard flat surface to build on and don't expect to move the sets easily once built. Also the pieces are extremely basic so you are paying alot of money for not very much. The mechanics of this set are not smooth like you would expect from Lego. The Mario electronics are okay and something new but it's very frustrating that you have to pay $70 for the starter kit just to get Mario (again, very basic pieces with that set, ones you probably already have. You're basically paying for Mario). It would be nice if there was more then one piece that worked with the sticker pieces and not just Mario. LASTLY, please get rid of the electronic instructions or at least give us the option of an instruction booklet. The electronic app is cumbersome to work with. I hope this isn't the direction Lego is going with other sets. Again I love Lego but can't recommend these. "
