The LEGO Super Mario collection started last year with the #71360 LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Mario Starter Course. The highlight of the set is the LEGO Mario figure with integrated color sensors, LCD screens, and a speaker that give instant expressive responses as you move the character through the buildable course from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole while collecting virtual coins and avoiding obstacles. The game can be played solo or with friends, and the course can be rearranged and combined with various expansion sets to create more challenging levels. It’s a highly interactive game experience that has been super popular with younger fans, and some older ones too.
Another set Mario can interact with is the #71374 LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System set, which is considered one of the most advanced, complex, and fun set LEGO ever released. We already discussed this set several times, and you can learn about it via the links at the end of this post.
So far, the only interactive character in the LEGO Super Mario line has been Mario, but this summer another starter set is coming, this time with an interactive Luigi.
The #71387 LEGO Super Mario Adventures with Luigi Starter Course features a full course from start to finish, Luigi with built-in interactive features (similar to Mario), and a few extra brick-built characters; Pink Yoshi, a Bone Goomba, and Boom Boom.

It’s pretty exciting to see another interactive character in the LEGO Super Mario line. And I’m curious to see if Mario and Luigi could interact in any way either through the starter courses or through the LEGO Super Mario app. The set should be released sometime this summer, and in the meantime you can check out the currently available sets at the LEGO Super Mario section of the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? How do you like the idea of a second LEGO Super Mario Starter Course? Do you have any of the already released sets? Are you excited about adding Luigi? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

I can confirm that kids love these sets. The technology is remarkable. Much better than the app based sets they have been doing.
Oh, great! I’m curious if they are going to be able to interact.
I don’t have much interest in Mario, but I’m interested in the technology behind the figures. I might pick up a starter set just for that.
