The Birthday Girl (known as Royal Ribbon in PAL regions) is a kart body that appears in Mario Kart 7. It resembles a shoe, with ribbons and bows decorated. As its North American name implies, it is a body that is primarily designed for female characters, but it can also be used by the male or indeterminate-gender characters, although male or indeterminate-gender computer racers are never seen on this kart.
It changes color for Princess Daisy, Rosalina, and Honey Queen, receiving an orange, blue, and purple color scheme, respectively. Furthermore, it is Princess Peach's, Princess Daisy's, and Rosalina's signature kart, as well as one of Honey Queen's, alongside the Bumble V. Although it changes color for most female characters, Peach and female Miis do not get a color change.
The Birthday Girl offers a high acceleration and handling boost, while its speed, weight, and off-road are hindered. It is tied with the Cloud 9 and Tiny Tug for the lowest speed of all kart bodies, while being tied with the Egg 1 and Bumble V for having the highest acceleration of all kart bodies. Lastly, the Birthday Girl is tied with the Cloud 9 and Koopa Clown for having the highest handling of all kart bodies.
Princess Peach's Birthday Girl makes a cameo appearance as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Trophy description from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
|Peach + Birthday Girl
||Princess Peach, where are you off to with that pink parasol? A day at the beach? More like a day at the races! Her tough and unconventional karts are ready, and she wants to take the checkered flag. Expect to see Peach win and be elegant at the same time.
|Peach + Royal Ribbon
||The next race is about to start, but who's going to come out on top? Will it be Peach, with her lovely Peach Parasol? She's customised her kart to be both tough AND cute, because she's not just aiming to win - she's aiming to win in style!

- The Birthday Girl is the first body in the series that changes color, but each character doesn't get a different color scheme, as only female characters (aside from Princess Peach) get different color schemes. In Mario Kart 8, this trait applies to the Landship, because only the Koopalings get different color schemes.
