    Kid’s Collection

    Similar to the t-shirt in the men’s collection, this one has the jump command on it. If you line it up with the men’s t-shirt it creates an image of Mario running and jumping!

    Donkey Kong is another member of the Mario family, and only kids get his t-shirt. You’d better not steal his bananas.
