Welcome back to Toy Aisle, Gizmodo's regular roundup of all the shiny new toys tempting our wallets lately. This week: Doctor Who's newest Doctor gets a lovely little action figure, Gambit gets an insanely articulated toy that'll arrive before his solo movie ever does, and the most adorable Kirby plush around makes his debut. Check it out!

Scooby Doo is offering a bizarre follow up to a 30-year-old mystery. Get another brief snippet from Bumblebee. A new clip from The Good Place teases big things for Eleanor. Meet Caitlin’s dad in new pictures from the next episode of The Flash. Plus, a 4400 reboot could be in the works. To me, my spoilers!

The day many thought would never come has arrived. The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo has made a deal with Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio that makes the Despicable Me movies (as well as recent hits Sing and The Secret Life of Pets) to do an animated Mario movie.

Video games such as Super Mario Bros. and Tetris included some of the most catchy background music ever put on a cartridge. But would you recognise those same classic video game themes played backwards? An artist created an album featuring four memorable game themes performed in reverse, and we can't stop listening to them.

Video: I think overly decorative cakes are silly -- like cool, here's a cake that looks like the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy your edible starfish -- but this Super Mario Bros. cake is wonderful because it recreates the entire first level of the video game in perfect, delicious detail. It's a stop motion animation in cake form. Every video game should come with a cake tossed in.

Despite an absolutely tiny and almost unreadable LED display used for the actual clock, there's nothing not to love about this Super Mario Bros. alarm clock that NCSX is soon selling for just $US24. Available in either a Mario or Luigi sprite version, the question block cubes on the base are used to set the time and the actual alarm, and when it's time to get out of bed you'll be awakened with the official Super Mario Bros theme.

Video: I'm a horrible person who always laughs when people fail in YouTube videos. This collection of fails made me laugh even harder because it's been perfectly edited to splice in Mario and Luigi from Nintendo as the evil invisible force who cause all these screw ups in real life.
