In addition to our 15 Best Mario Related Videos on the Internet roundup, we thought we'd also track down the top 15 coolest, wackiest and kookiest Mario paraphernalia we could find.
Below is a veritable Mushroom Kingdom's worth of Mario-themed treasures, some official, some homemade, some ... I don't even know from where. Enjoy!
And, of course, if you find a suitably drool-worthy Mario-related item, feel free to share it with us in the comments!
