Guess what? Today is the 27th birthday of the much loved Super Mario!
You know… Super Mario? The little Italian guy in the red suit! Has a brother called Luigi and hangs about with a princess and a mushroom!
I’m 30 now but remember my childhood and how Super Mario had a huge part in it. It all started off with my little brother, he had what is now referred to as a retro Nintendo console and one of his first games was Super Mario. I still remember frustratingly trying to beat what we referred to as the big boss man at the end! I also have strong memories of collecting the coins by jumping up and down under these brick like things that sometime if you were lucky contained a 1up mushroom that gave you an extra life.
I’ve grown up with Super Mario in my life and it’s now become a big part of my children’s life too. As the years have pasted Super Mario has gone from strength to strength. My children love playing games like Super Mario Cart, Mario Olympics and more.
As to celebrate the Birthday of Super Mario, I’ve been given an awesome prize for my readers by the fabulous Just Mustard.
