80’s Super Mario Brothers activity book

By Spencer . April 12, 2006 . 11:40am

Before we had Game Boys for entertainment on long plane rides we had activity books. These time killers had games to play, pictures to color and occasionally papercraft. Fortunately the Super Mario Brothers activity book from Golden had it all. The first few pages had the story of Super Mario Brothers to color in. Golden’s adaptation is a little different. After Bowser took over the mushroom kingdom he turned the poor toadstools into bricks and horsehair plants. Also Luigi is notably absent, but some cool activities like making a jumping Mario might make up for it. Check below for some scans of the book.

    .::: Actually the story is correct. This was how it was told in the instruction booklet.

    As a side note: I remember owning a Dutch version of this activity book.

    Thanks for the cool pictures. My son loves Mario Bros (as I did as a kid). We recently “discovered” some old Nintendo Adventures Books. They’re Choose you Own Adventure Books, but Nintendo game themed (Mario, Zelda, etc..) Why don’t they make these things anymore ?!?! There’s obviously a video game market for it!
