If only Mario stumbled upon this garden trick earlier, he wouldn't have had much problem dispatching off King Bowser and his cohort of baddies. You will be able to grow your very own 1up mushroom in the comfort of your own home - all you need to do is add some potting soil into the included green pot, push the spores deep inside, and leave it alone in a dank, dark place for a few weeks. The 1up Mushroom is the perfect stocking stuffer for Mario fans, retailing for just $9.99.
For the millionth time, this was an April Fool’s joke on ThinkGeek. They are going to sell the real product but there will be no magic seeds… it will be just a plastic mushroom that you put in the planter to fool people.
