There is nothing more beautiful than acquiring a shiny yellow star in a Mario game. Sometimes it’ll cost you 20 coins, but if you want to top this year’s Christmas tree with this beaut’, it’ll set you back $20 over at ThinkGeek (which in my opinion is worth every damn penny.)
Here’s the official scoop:
YOU GOT A STAR! Invincibility is a highly sought after trait in Christmas trees. If you didn’t spring for one of those aluminum trees from A Charlie Brown Christmas, you’re pretty much on your own, though. Whether real or artificial, your tree is a magnet for dogs, cats, and curious toddlers. What it really needs isn’t more ornaments; what it needs is a good defense. And that’s where we come in. Put one of these little beauties on your tree to bestow upon it invincibility. Now, this star doesn’t light up. If you want to hear the little tune, you’ll have to hum it yourself. Sounds like a new caroling tradition to us. Of course, your tree can still be destroyed by lava, crushing damage, and, well, your pets and toddlers, too. It’s just a Super Mario star for the top of your tree. But it’s super cute, right?
