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?
I'd love to see more of Labo coming down the line, in the form of new kits and even cooler ideas as the year wears on, but I'm still reeling over what a great job I did getting through it all and running the gauntlet with its debut products. If Nintendo can tweak the included games to make a more substantial set of electronic components, Labo will evolve into a near-perfect experience. The adult in me is totally here for that. The kid in me, however, just wants more fish to catch.
