Tomy has produced a set of Mario Kart racing toys, created by Q Steer, so that you can hold races in the real world as well as on your TV screen. Each is 3.5cm high and 5cm long, and are controlled by a 6-directional remote control.

There are seven to choose from in the video above, but only two are on sale right now - Mario and Yoshi. Both packs include spare batteries, and bananas and shells that you can scatter around your desk. Each also has a boost button that'll give you an extra lick of  speed to sneak past your opponent.

Mario and Yoshi both cost £14 each and they're available now from CuteBitz.com.
