When news of Nintendo Labo for Switch was announced last month, I admit I was skeptical. Could cardboard really be the next hot gaming accessory? This past weekend Thomas and I were invited by Nintendo to join them at Toy Fair for an exclusive hands-on opportunity with Labo’s Variety and Robot Kits.
After creating a couple of the cardboard Toy-Cons that are part of the Variety Kit and trying out the Robot Kit, I’m sold and no longer a skeptic. Here’s what we learned during our time with the Nintendo team and Labo and what you need to know as you consider pre-ordering one or anxiously count down the days until April 20 when it’s schedule to arrive on your doorstep.
About Nintendo Labo
If you’re not familiar with Nintendo Labo or can’t make sense of all the things your kids are enthusiastically spouting about this new must-have for their Switch, Labo combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY thanks to Toy-Con gaming accessories that kids make themselves.
