I had seen some headlines about the Nintendo LABO but I just got around to checking it out now. It looks pretty cool as does the Nintendo Switch. I’m sure my daughter would have a lot of fun with this if she owned a Nintendo Switch but we have no immediate plans to buy one yet. This is the Nintendo LABO Robot Kit but there is a regular kit as well. The robot kit is $10 more expensive and is up for pre-order on Amazon at the moment for $79.99.
- 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.
