That may very well be because Mario is not for one age group, –dads, moms, grandpas, older brothers and sisters, and younger toddlers, everyone knows and loves the cool mustachioed plumber Mario–his cohorts and his conflicts.
Mario is a good guy, and parents appreciate him as a decent role model with a valuable place today alongside all those super outlandishly beautiful of face and figures heroes.

Playtime with Super Good Ideas
Super Mario is not about revenge, grandiose ideas to save the world, he takes on his challenges with a good heart. Anyone can be like Mario the plumber. Of course, kids love a little magic in their fantasy play, and so Mario can wear different things like the vanish cap, or the penguin suit. He has his raccoon tail for flying powers. He gets an ice flower so he can walk over ice or lava, or a tanooki suit to be a powerful statue. Super Mario toys give the kids just the kinds of images that are fun, harmless, and cool. Super Mario’s world includes enough cohorts and characters to give good fantasy game parts to a whole classroom of kids to choose their favorite.
What kids don’t like cars and karts and driving, and so there is Mario kart toys and games–with Mario the driver to fulfill their wishes.
For art lovers these characters are ones the kids want to draw–you know ever since Diary of a Wimpy Kid made cartoons an awesome thing to do. Sheila has great pictures of her Bombette and Baby Bowser from wii Mario kart throwing a koopa from his kart. Randy makes a great mean Bowser. But Lillian is best drawing a lovely Princess Daisy. Bob loves motorcycles so he has practiced drawing Luigi riding a motor bike. Andy, who loves his own tongue and what it can do, draws a pretty good Yoshi. And, what child doesn’t work wonders with a tongue, like Yoshi!
