LEGO and Nintendo finally teaming up on projects is a dream come true for Nintendo fans. The companies have paired to create some truly unique products, especially with LEGO Super Mario. It's a project that took over 4 years, and Nintendo really put LEGO through the ringer to make sure everything was in tip-top shape.
In an interview with Nintendo Life, LEGO's Jonathan Bennink talked about the lengths Nintendo went to make sure LEGO Super Mario wasn't going to fall apart the second kids got their hands on it.
We never had a partner challenge us in safety and quality, and this was the first time! Every time we shipped a Mario to them, they dropped it 6,000 times. That is Nintendo quality – that was new for us!
