    If you or your kid loves to play open-ended games like Minecraft or create inspired Lego creations without instructions, the Variety Kit is a great way to go.

    Though not perfect, what the Nintendo Labo does and what it has the potential to do outshines its minor flaws as a product.
  3. Even if no one in your family gets into the Toy-Con Garage, the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Variety Kit should still provide plenty of fun. My family was amazed while making these ingenious, multifaceted models and delighted as we watched them come to life with a little digital magic.

    Nintendo went against the stream with cardboard and scored. If you have children, do not hesitate. You cannot find anything better for Switch. [Issue#286]

    Nintendo went ahead and cemented itself as not only the oddball of the gaming industry but as the king of left field. The Labo has some great ideas stored inside of it and the experience itself of building the Toy-Cons was quite enjoyable – albeit a bit shallow in terms of some of the games.

    I love the inventiveness of Nintendo Labo and can see the potential in broader projects down the line.

    I bought this for my son, but ended up enjoying it quite a bit myself. This is incredibly fun to build and interact with. The building videosI bought this for my son, but ended up enjoying it quite a bit myself. This is incredibly fun to build and interact with. The building videos on the game card are incredibly detailed and we had no issues putting together the toy cons. This is a significant time investment, as each toy con takes considerable time to assemble. However, it is very satisfying once you have one of the builds complete and you fire up the software and everything works. My only complaint is that I can tell these things will start to break down over time and you will need to replace or throw them away. Expand

    A bit overpriced for what you get (ok there is more material, but on the other hand the mini-games should be less expansive): overall, the DIYA bit overpriced for what you get (ok there is more material, but on the other hand the mini-games should be less expansive): overall, the DIY / small games experience is fun with kids.

    This game is not worth 100$! It is not that exciting in any shape or form. Do not buy it!

    I think they made this to make their sixty dollar Wii U Ports more enticing... kids actually seem to hate it; they want to play a real game...I think they made this to make their sixty dollar Wii U Ports more enticing... kids actually seem to hate it; they want to play a real game... and I can't blame them. The cardboard sets are rather expensive, so unless you lack imagination and need a game to help you play with boxes for a premium price; stay clear of this dumb idea. Expand
