Lego's epic 2064 piece set is perfect for older children or those who are more digitally advanced. It includes microfigure scale dioramas of iconic scenes from Super Mario 64, such as Bob-omb Battlefield, Peach's Castle and Cool, Cool Mountain. It is also compatible with Lego Mario interactive figures and new Lego Luigi figures for extra play potential. MGA's super-deformed surprise toys are still a big hit and this four-story wooden bait is sure to top a bunch of birthday or Christmas lists. It is compatible with both smaller L, O, L and O, M, G counterparts and includes transformer furniture, spinning rooms and lots of furniture.
