This is the gadget that every Mario Bros. fan needs in their kitchen

If you stopped following your mom’s advice to eat all your vegetables, you’re going to want to listen up because the perfect gadget has arrived — a kitchen tool that turns radishes into Mario Bros. power-up mushrooms. The Ravanello Radish Shaper is only $12, but it’s about to become your new favorite gizmo to use in the kitchen.

The tool was created by designer Avichai Tadmore of Monkey Business, who is also responsible for pasta-shaped pot holders and a Pinocchio-inspired pencil sharpener.

"Avichai’s inspiration for this item was the common image of mushrooms in cartoons and animated films," a rep for Monkey Business told the Huffington Post. "The Super Mario connection was actually something that caught us all by surprise!"

The tool, which can be purchased from Monkey Business and Animi Causa, sculpts radishes into a shape that bears an uncanny resemblance to the power-up mushrooms from the Super Mario Bros. games. (Raise your hand if you’re experiencing all the nostalgia feels right now.)

For those of us who have been slacking off when it comes to getting our daily serving of vegetables, this gadget is just what the doctor ordered.

Radishes suddenly sound a whole lot more appetizing, right?
