"When asked who his favorite was, my son chose the mushroom man over all the other Mario characters. He is really cute but is shorter than our 5 year old. Probably not as bedazzling as a larger character would be in pictures with our party guests. As other reviews indicated, packaging is not the greatest. Head came bent. It's not bad enough for me to go through the complaint process to get a crisp new one. However, I would hope that they would improve packaging for these standups after seeing all these reviews!"
