The costume accessory kit comes with the iconic Mario hat, a pair of white gloves and a faux moustache (self-adhesive). 




The Mario accessory kit comes in one size and is priced at $25.02. 

Amazon is also running a promotion, with customers entitled to a $3 discount with the code Treat3 with a minimum spend of $25 on selected items
