Summary

Make, Play, and Discover with Nintendo Labo! Simply have fun making DIY cardboard creations called Toy-Con, bring them to life with the technology of the Nintendo Switch™ system (required; sold separately) to play games, and discover the magic behind how Toy-Con works. Express your creativity by customizing Toy-Con projects with your own color, stickers, paint, and more. You can even invent your own Toy-Con! Use pre-cut cardboard kits to build your own remote-control car, fishing rod, 13-key piano, or toy house, with easy-to-follow interactive instructions included in the Nintendo Labo software. After the making is complete, the kits come to life. Insert a Nintendo Switch Joy-Con™ controller into your Toy-Con to interact with the Nintendo Labo software in a variety of games that will have you catching fish, racing on a motorbike, or playing music on a piano. Nintendo Labo lets you explore your curiosity to discover the mechanics of how each Toy-Con works and interacts with the Nintendo Switch technology. Find creative ways to customize your Toy-Con creations and invent new ways to play with Nintendo Labo! The Variety Kit includes six different projects to Make, Play, and Discover: two Toy-Con RC Cars, a Toy-Con Fishing Rod, a Toy-Con House, a Toy-Con Motorbike, and a Toy-Con Piano!

Nintendo Labo might seem like a gimmick - and it is, to a certain extent - but there’s far more it than at first meets the eye. It’s a collaborative concept as rewarding in its construction as it is in its final result (much like any LEGO build you’ve ever worked on), and one that utilises every facet of Switch’s DNA in a way only Nintendo could pull off.

Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01 Variety Kit shows off a lot of what makes Nintendo great: charm, ingenuity, and undefinable Nintendo magic. However, the Variety Kit feels like more of a tasting than a full-course meal; without a hook to have gamers come back after the cardboard is built, it is hard recommending a purchase of the $70 kit.

There are a few “experimental” things you can try to build and design via the “Secret Garage”, but none of it really seemed interesting enough for me to bother with. The Nintendo LABO Variety Kit has some fun and satisfying aspects to it, but it lacks any real longevity. And now I’m faced with the ultimate dilemma – where the heck will I store all these cardboard projects now?
