  • Nintendo Labo Variety Kit vs. Robot Kit: What's Different?

The Nintendo Labo takes this concept and puts a spin on it by taking DIY cardboard projects and incorporating the Nintendo Switch, a console/handheld hybrid that was released on March 3, 2017. For the kids who are eager to try out Labo, Nintendo will be holding events in NY and San Francisco.

Those looking to add some creativity to their cardboard toys can purchase a $9.99 "Customization Set" that adds stencils, stickers and colored tape to help your personalize your newly made accessories, though you can also presumably use any markers or stickers you already own to spice things up.

You can not use Nintendo Labo without a Nintendo Switch, outright. I asked him to come over and watch the commercial with me, to see if I was missing something.

So, what is Labo?

Yesterday, Nintendo surprised everyone by announcing the Nintendo Labo. The keys of the cardboard piano goes down as you push; the reel of the fishing pole will turn as you use it.

We'll have to wait and see if Labo sales meet expected sales (and target demographics). The move is also a nod to the Wii a decade ago, which broadened the audience for Nintendo's products by getting kids and grandparents alike to swing controllers and play virtual tennis and bowling.

Nintendo Labo's Robot Kit suits you up with a robot pack, complete with pulley system mechanics. And in the middle, of course, is the game itself being played with the full Labo constructed. The Switch's detachable Joy Con controllers are then inserted, with their sensors detecting movement such as turning a corner to manipulate games on the screen.

Looks like Nintendo may have found their way get Switches into classrooms as well with the Labo.


NINTENDO has long promised new "experiences" and it has delivered on that since day one.

The best way to explain it, is to show you.

With Nintendo Labo, building is just as much fun as playing.

That gun peripheral is decidedly less kid-friendly than the other Toy-Con models, but it could be used for ports of first-person shooter games.

They were all designed with safety in mind, there is no glue or scissors required to create any of the cardboard kits.

Labo is meant for kids, yes, but try and ignore this adorable little piano. The house, however, is a bit more unique. They will be priced at $70 and $80 respectively.

The Robot Kit will contain the cartridge and cardboard parts and accessories to create a backpack and visor.
