Creating the perfect man cave is on every guy’s to-do list, but creating the perfect baby cave for your newborn is a whole other project all together. One father in particular took inspiration to the newly released Mario Kart 8 and thought of creating an entire nursery with a Mario Kart theme.
“After searching online, there didn’t seem to be any big attempts at a Mario Kart nursery out there, and with the newest version coming out, Mario Kart 8, that sparked my interest. I had a vision in my head and set out to make it happen.”
And set out to make it happen he did complete with a full mural featuring characters Yoshi, Koopa and Princess along with a track complete with a life-like Mario on the ceiling, which actually lights up. Creator/username TroyMcKlure says the room took a year and a half to finish. One Reddit commentor made the remark that the room took longer to create than the baby. We say it’s equally as miraculous.
Check out the tour video the dad created to show off his creation, which includes the entire process from painting the mural to creating the molds. Pretty cool.
The dad admits he used to work as a game tester for Gears of War and some others but mainly says he watched a lot of Do-It-Yourself videos on youtube, which took a lot of time to learn and conquer. As cool as the room is, it’s pretty intense. Hopefully his son doesn’t grow up to just loathe Mario and Luigi. Or worse, give the kid nightmares. I’d hate to have some strange men with mustaches hovering over me while I slept at night.
