Item Boxes can be used to obtain items in the Mario Kart series. These item boxes will give your Mario Kart items like Banana Peels, Blue Shells, Starman, Green Shells, etc. These are all over the track, don't mistake them for a Fake Item Box though! In Mario Kart: Double Dash‼, there are double and single item boxes. The appearance are like item blocks the Super Mario series, just except blue, and they did not change much over time. In Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 they are hexagons instead.
