Nintendo Labo


Nintendo Labo conjures a unique form of entertainment magic by seamlessly blending a cardboard construction toy with the Switch's versatile hardware

Excellent guided building instructions ; Surprising amount of depth ; Rich functionality

General cardboard longevity/durability concerns ; No auto-advance option in tutorials ; Requires plenty patience

The open-ended nature and discovery-driven creativity of Nintendo Labo sets it apart from anything else out there. Provided you have the patience for it, your efforts will be rewarded countless times over.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit review


Elephant (and others) in the room

The VR Toy-Cons are truly amazing inventions ; Tracking surprisingly good ; Reasonably priced ; Family-friendly fun

Poor resolution ; Games have limited longevity

A great introduction to virtual reality for kids and a tantalising glimpse into Nintendo’s future plans

Nintendo Labo VR review: Fun way to try out virtual reality on a Switch


Nintendo has finally embraced virtual reality with an all-new Nintendo Labo system that turns your Switch into a VR headset with games.

Let's you experience VR in a fun way ; Plenty of games to play ; Lots of sets to build

We have questions about the longevity of the games you can play ; Resolution is shocking (360p) ; Some of the games are just too basic

The bottom line is that the full Labo VR kit is incredibly creative, imaginative and great fun while it lasts. However, you might find that fun doesn’t last as long as you wish it did.

Nintendo Labo review


Forget the old-fashioned looks – this is a new frontier for kid-friendly gaming...

Clear, animated instructions ; Some amazing engineering ; Toy-Con Garage boosts longevity

Card can get battered, quickly ; Games are a little hit and miss ; Potential for tantrums

It demands patience, but Labo is a seriously impressive new development in family-friendly gaming

Getting creative with cardboard

Toy-Con Garage has great potential ; Brings kids and parents together ; Hours of fun between making and playing

Shallow mini games ; Worry about cardboard durability

Nintendo Labo makes a very good first impression. We can absolutely see it providing hours of fun for kids and parents and it has a great deal of educational potential.

Nintendo Labo VR Kit review: DIY virtual reality for your Nintendo Switch


It's made out of cardboard, but Nintendo's buildable VR headset is the perfect accompaniment to your Nintendo Switch

Filled with creativity ; Great fun for children (and big kids) ; Expansive games offering

Cardboard reliability concerns

Most importantly, the sort of otherworldly adventures that Labo VR provides are unmatched. Not only do you construct these intricate creations from scratch, but you also get to use them as fun playthings in-game – no other VR system currently comes...

Build your own VR headset with Nintendo Labo VR


Nintendo is joining the party with their own DIY take on a VR headset

Nintendo has reassured users that the as-of-yet unnamed Labo VR games will be playable in both 2D and VR, in a similar manner to the adjustable 3D available on the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL. You can find out more at the official Labo website.

My life as a cardboard robot: A week with Nintendo Labo


We spent a week with Labo and its crazy folding forms. Here's what Nintendo's ode to papercraft and robotics feels like.

Incredible cardboard designs. Really well-done step-by-step instructions. Labo's software and games are fun to play and explore. There's a lot to do, and a sense that many secrets await unlocking.

Yes, it’s mostly just cardboard. The kits can be daunting for younger kids. There's a risk of things breaking, so handle with care. And, where do you store all those large cardboard things later on?

Nintendo Labo is a fun and unique Switch add-on -- a Lego-meets-Ikea cardboard construction set that will unlock kids’ real-world creativity.

Nintendo Labo VR Kit


The Labo VR Kit is Nintendo's answer to Google Cardboard: a full suite of virtual reality accessories and mini-games made from cardboard. It's also the best Labo kit yet.

Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit review: Labo's difficult second album is a success


The Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit is a collection of the best Toy-Cons yet

It’s clear that the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit is a step above what’s come before from Nintendo. It’s also a sign that, moving forward, future Labo kits are likely to increase in complexity.
