The Rob Visits Nintendo World – Part 2
Last week, I began telling you about my trip to New York City’s Nintendo World… A heaven-like place for hardcore Nintendo fans like myself (click here to read part one). I grew up with the little red plumber at every stage of my life, in fact just this weekend I was golfing with him on an imaginary golf course high above the clouds. That’s right, I was part of a Mario Golf foursome with Mario, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong. (I hit 8 under par, and won 2 out of three rounds.)
The store portion of Nintendo World is a treasure trove of Nintendo paraphernalia, many of which you literally cannot find anywhere else. There were video games, toys/dolls, clothing/apparel, school supplies, posters, ANYTHING you could think of with a Nintendo logo on it was in the store, and available for a very reasonable price. I walked out with my Mario Golf 3DS game, a plush Paratroopa doll (part of the display featured in the attached image), a notebook, folder, a deck of Mario playing cards and only spent about $60.00!
In my previous blog, I showed you the video I took of the Nintendo Museum’s console display. This video here is the other portion of the Museum, focusing on Nintendo’s many handheld video game systems.
