Kids, parents, and families love the Nintendo Switch because this versatile gaming system has a wealth of family friendly games and the system can be used at home or on the go. It features the ability to dock it and play through your TV or take the handheld system on the go for ultimate portability. Whether your family has owned a Nintendo Switch for a while or your kids will be unwrapping it for the first time during the holidays, there are lots of items you can gift Nintendo Switch superfans to go with their console. Must-have accessories have the power to improve game play, enhance creativity, and ramp up the fun, especially when you max out multiplayer games by playing with more friends. If a Nintendo Switch lover in your life is looking to add on to their system, here are my seven must-have gifts for Nintendo Switch superfans.
7 Must-Have Gifts for Nintendo Switch Superfans
Nintendo Switch consoles only come with one set of Joy-Con which is fine if your kids can share! One Joy-Con allows two people to play the same game but game play is better when siblings who want to enjoy a friendly Switch rivalry or mom and dad want to get in on the fun during a family gaming night, have their own set. Get a second set of Joy-Con controllers to take advantage of multiplayer games since up to four sets of Joy-Con can be connected when playing a 4 person game. There’s no shortage of Joy-Con in colorful pairs. Choose between split color pairs like classic neon red and neon blue or neon pink and neon green or select two Joy-Cons of the same color (neon yellow, gray, and red).
Joy-Con controllers are great but some Nintendo Switch superfans might argue that they have more control when using a wired controller, especially featuring a favorite character. These traditional-style Nintendo Switch Character Controllers are officially licensed by Nintendo and feature a satiny finish, 8ft USB cable for quick charging, and fun special edition designs featuring Yoshi, Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, the Splatoon squid, and more. Figure out which game your tween or teen loves the most and then order them a wired controller featuring their favorite character.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Robot Kit
Nintendo Labo combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY thanks to cardboard gaming accessories that kids make themselves. Creativity, play, and STEM are rolled into one when a child sits down to follow directions on the Switch screen and starts to build. It’s even more fun when they’re done and they use what they’ve made during game play. It’s even more fun when they’re done and they use what they’ve made during game play. Kids use the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Robot Kit to build a robot suit that can be built, worn, and used to assume control of a giant in-game robot. Once built, the robot kit becomes a cardboard backpack-like object that features straps that go over your shoulders, cardboard pieces that get affixed around your shoes, and controllers that you hold on to. One of the Joy-Con controllers from the Switch is put in the robot backpack and an optical camera inside captures movement as you bend your arms and squat and stand to move your robot to squash buildings. To play, dock your Switch and the include Labo software transforms real life actions into game play you see on the television screen. There’s also a 2 player mode where a friend with a Robot Kit can bring their robot suit and Joy-Con controllers for a two player robot battle! The Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Robot Kit is one of three Labo kits. Other fun sets include the Variety Kit and the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit.
3 Great Games Nintendo Switch Superfans Will Love
- Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! — Pokémon Trainers looking to improve their skills will get their chance as they battle fellow Trainers, Gym Leaders, and even Team Rocket.

- Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee! — Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee! Is similar to Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! but the main difference is having Eevee by your side as you you’re your joyrney to the Kanto region in your quest to be the best Pokémon Trainer ever. Rated E for Everyone
- Super Mario Party —New this fall, Super Mario Party contains 80 minigames that can be played with up to 4 players at a time.

The endless options for playing so many games with favorite characters and different player configurations (some are 2 vs 2 while others are 1 vs 3) is endless fun whether you’re pedaling tricycles, flipping meat, vacuuming (yes, really!), marching in a parade, or working together to row down a river.
