Posted August 25, 2018 05:09:38 You know how kids are so obsessed with finding a good game to play when their parents are not around?
That’s exactly what I was doing when I was trying to figure out how to make a kid stay home and play with me.
I had a game in mind that I could teach my son how to play and I was ready to make it happen.
When he was born I decided I wanted to put him in a room where he could be surrounded by a whole bunch of other children.
As soon as he was old enough to learn, I was determined to get him an arcade game.
At first, I thought the only arcade game I could find was a pinball machine, but I soon discovered there was an arcade cabinet version of Super Mario Bros. 3.
The cabinets were all over the store and I figured the kids would love the idea of spending hours in front of a machine that looked like a giant toy.
So I took him to the store where they had them and bought him a Super Mario World arcade cabinet.
I also took him for a spin with the original Super Mario Brothers in the arcade cabinet and he loved it!
The cabinets have also given me the opportunity to show off the Super Mario world to the kids at my local playground and I have a bunch of fun ideas in store for what I will try to get to the park with my son soon.
I just want to give a special thanks to the arcade owners who made it possible for me to bring this idea to life!
Thanks so much, Sarah, for sharing this story with us.
