The immense popularity of the Mario Kart series has prompted many companies and corporations to release Mario Kart Merchandise, which consists of miscellaneous collectables, trinkets, and clothing, plus much more.
Basically, anything that deals with the spinoff Mario franchise that is NOT a Mario Kart game or accessory (such as the Wii Wheel) is considered merchandise.
There's of course going to be a plethora of Mario Kart car toys, because, as you might've noticed, it is a racing game. Most toys have characters attached to the vehicle, and a few are even RC. But those are really damn expensive. Here's an incomplete list of official, not that damn off-brand, Mario Kart toys that have been released.
- Nintendo Super Mario Kart Diecast Collection (Bumble V and Standard Kart)
- Mario Kart Wii Toy Car - Wild Wing (Mario)
- Mario Kart Anti-Gravity R/C Racer (with Mario)
- Super Mario Kart Ride On Vehicle
- Mario Tape Racers
- McDonald'sTM Mario Kart 8 Toys
To be honest, not as many Mario Kart shirts have been made or at least worn as the main Super Mario series. However, there are still some out there, including:
- Tees with Items on them.
- The Mario kart logo stylized as the NASCAR racing logo.
- Mario Kart 8 pajamas.
- Super Mario Kart shirt with Mario and his Standard Kart.
No one gives a fuck about plushes. That's why there are no Mario Kart ones, and for that, the world is thankful. Unfortunately, there ARE Mario series plush, and a few follow:
LEGOTM at the moment doesn't have rights to Nintendo characters or games, so at the moment, K'NeXTM is filling in for the building Mario Kart toys. They are doing a fine job of it, too, making series after series and releasing good, quality replicas of tracks. The prices are a little expenso, but the models aint that bad.
- Wide assortments of Mario kart racers, primarily from Mario Kart Wii.
- Mario Kart Wii Track Pack
- Mario Kart Wii Bowser's Castle Ultimate Building Set
- Many Bike and Kart building sets, usually coming with a character. They feature Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Kart 8 vehicles.
- Mario Kart 8 Thwomp Ruins Building Set
You get what you would expect from a Mario Kart key chain: almost all of them feature racers, karts, and items.
