We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
Take a break from jumping over Donkey Kong’s barrels as they come rolling towards you and enjoy a cuppa in a barrel of your own. This Donkey Kong Shaped Mug is the perfect accompaniment to your next mid-game tea break. Shaped like one of Donkey Kong’s instantly recognisable, iconic barrels, this oversized mug is loads of fun and makes a great gift for lovers of the Donkey Kong or Super Mario games as well as Nintendo and retro gaming in general.
Perfect for use at home or at work, this mug is a nod to a true classic from the history of gaming. It was whilst jumping over Donkey Kong’s barrels that Super Mario, everyone’s favourite plumber, won the hearts of gamers around the world.
One of the most popular and instantly recognisable video game characters of all time, Mario first appeared in the iconic 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong under the name 'Jumpman'. Since then, Mario has become a legend within popular culture and has been a defining figure not just for Nintendo, but for the whole gaming industry. Since hitting the big time with Super Mario Bros. Mario has had huge success with other instalments such as Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario 3D World and the hugely popular racing spin-off Super Mario Kart.
This Donkey Kong Shaped Mug is an officially licensed Super Mario product.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business. We are aiming at the small, limited quantity, but hand-build and restored market.
All work, restoration, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Handhend Legend in the USA. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at https://handheldlegend.com
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
