This Guy Spent Over A Year To Make An Awesome "Mario Kart" Nursery

Greatest. Dad. Ever.

If you're thinking about building a new space for your newborn baby, why not take YouTuber Geeksmithing's lead and build a Mario Kart nursery?:


That's right. Geeksmithing, after building nurseries based off The Legend of Zelda and Yoshi's Island, built a nursery based on the iconic racing game.

Geeksmithing says in the video: "After searching online, there didn't seem to be any big attempts at a Mario Kart nursery out there."

"I had a vision in my head and set out to make it happen."

Geeksmithing spent almost a year and a half on this DIY project.

Here's a mural featuring Bowser and Princess Peach.

According to a comment he left on Reddit, the project cost him approximately $1500.

Here's Yoshi racing up to a castle.

It even has a mobile featuring Mario Kart toys from McDonald's Happy Meals.

Also, that oversized Super Nintendo controller is off the hook.

Now, one of the major features of this nursery is the big Mario statue that hangs upside down, off the ceiling.

Geeksmithing created the whole thing from scratch. He started off with insulation foam and Apoxie Sculpt modeling compound to build the car.

He painted the car red and used Adobe Illustrator to make the sticker.

He also used a 3D machine to give a detailed texture to the tires.

He then sculpted Mario's head using Monster Clay and silicone molding.

He built Mario's body with insulation foam.

And the final product ended up looking like a million dollars.

And yes, IT LIGHTS UP!

And makes for a gorgeous night light.
