We received a Labo kit to experience and offer our honest feedback.
The Nintendo Switch is one of the best things to happen to the gaming world for both kids and adults. My kids thoroughly enjoy the system and us parents love the reinvention of Mario and Friends with nods to their past.
My son has been asking for Labo and when I looked online I wasn’t too excited about it, I’ll admit. But I really didn’t know what it was and now that I do, I’m blown away. We all are.
Nintendo Labo ($79.99) provides a Virtual Reality experience for your Nintendo Switch, with its own games and a whole new way to play. The kit comes with six Toy-Con projects including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant – as well as a Screen Holder and other accessories.
The pieces for each project come as flat pieces of cardboard. Just punch out the pieces and assemble according to the onscreen instructions. Even my seven year old was able to assemble his own projects with a little help from Dad.
Our favorite so far is the Toy-Con Blaster. We all took turns blasting the bad guys, these bright pink blobs. Virtual reality is way cool, and we’ll definitely be purchasing the expansion kits that are available for under 20 bucks.
Handheld virtual reality?! Now this sounds like FUN!!!

Wow! What a cool toy for kids. I’m sharing this with my sister who has 3 kiddos at home. They’d absolutely love to have a Nintendo Lab Virtual Reality for Switch.
This is so cool. My son has a nintendo switch and is interested in VR! I bet he would love this.
My nephew got a Nintendo switch last year for Christmas. I will have to tell my sister about this. I bet he would like it as an addition.
We have the Switch and want to get this. The LABO kits are a lot of fun.

I’m not into video games, but I bet the kids would love Nintendo Labo. That’s great that the pieces are easy to assemble.
This looks like so much fun. It would be so perfect for my nephew. He really loves toys like this.
Amber Myers says
How neat! My son would love this. He’s all about Nintendo stuff and does have a switch. I’ll have to show him this.
This seems like a lot of fun for the kids to do. It gets their mind running to think about projects. I like the idea of having them put something together before they can use it.

Oh this seems super fun for people who love games! We aren’t super into video games but seems neat!
