      Fun project that can inspire creativity

      It is a pretty misleading to describe this as a video game. If you get this with the expectation of a quick build process and mostly playing well polished games you will be disappointed. However, Labo is a great STEAM (Science Tech Engineering Arts Math) activity for kids and people who want a nostalgic experience. I equate creating the Toy Cons to a really positive experience assembling Ikea furniture. The interactive instructions built into the software makes it a lot more fun and easier than other construction projects. Once you’re done you have something that is more personal than a toy you purchased. Also, the fun doesn’t stop after construction. Each toy con comes with interactive software that lets you play with the Toy Con. Some of the software is better and more engaging than others. It is possible to get really deep into the interactivity with a light programming system called toy con garage. The biggest disappointment with the Labo is that these projects seem naturally suited for working with others, however the instructions in the software are very linear so there is no easy way to break up the work so multiple people can work at the same time.

      Fancy cardboard

      I had mixed feelings about the labo concept and still do after my purchase. I justified purchasing as thinking I'm paying for the software along with the cardboard. The idea of building something out of thick paper and bringing it to life with your switch is certainly creative that could only be executed by Nintendo. I opened it up on a rainy Sunday and started the project with the kids. The instructions are super easy to follow but very time consuming. After awhile the kids got distracted and I ended up continuing on my own. After a couple of hours I felt I was done but the kids came back for encouragement and we finished it quickly. Once the project was completed it was cool to have it interact with the switch. I guess if you enjoy Lego projects you might enjoy this. I'm not a big fan of putting things together so would pass on this purchase if I could go back. Again I can totally see how someone else might enjoy this product and ultimately the finished projects were cool.

      I pre-order this package because of many things: 1. As a VR AR developer, I am frustrated with the poor controller design by HTC, Oculus, Daydream, and Gear VR. LABO is a breakthrough and an inspiration for specialty controllers. 2. Grow up with Anime and Japanese toys. Cardboard is a very important component in this experience. From the monthly children learning magazine's folding cardboard toys to the famous anime characters and robots made of cardboard, LABO is the next big thing to extend this cultural significance. However, I don't think Americans would appreciate cardboard as much as Japanese do other than packing materials. 3. Putting this together by yourself is long and painful. It is like experiencing one of those love of first sight romance with a quick burn out. The robot box is so many works. We only played for about 30 mins, I had not touched it for the past 3 weeks. I recommend starting with the other box set first.

      Fun for kids...and adults!

      I’m having a great time with my wife putting these cardboard creations together. It’s fun taking turns with folding the cardboard cutouts while the other controls the Switch’s on-screen instructions, which are very intuitive. We put some music on and knock these things out. Then it’s fun messing around and experimenting with the capabilities of the Switch’s joy cons and how they interact with the cardboard objects and the surrounding environment. May not be for everyone, but if you like taking the time to build the stuff and mess with what really are toys, this is for you. Some of the projects may be a little too much for small kids, as you have to be careful not to damage the semi-delicate cardboard. But with adult supervision, they should be good!

      What a neat idea by Nintendo, I highly recommend this product. It is very interactive and gets kids to build, create and learn. My 18 year old spent over an hour working with his 11 y/o sister building the fishing activity. Anything that can bring those two together for that long is pure magic in my eyes! It really speaks to how interesting the whole product is and its broad appeal. younger kids will certainly need some help building a couple of the projects. Beyond that, the activities you help create are a bunch of fun and work really well. I haven't been this impressed with Nintendo since the original Wii came out.

      This Nintendo Labo kit might seem pricey at $70 "just for cardboard." However, the designs of the kits are quite complex, and feels quite sturdy when put together. The cardboard kits were designed well for ease of putting together, but do note that it does take quite a bit of time to assemble one of the kits - they vary in complexity and can take from 1 to 3 hours per kit. The software also gives you games to use it with, but the software also teaches you how the different sensors work in the games, as well as a general understanding of how the sensors work - so it's educational if you're interested in that kind of stuff as well. I thought it was all very interesting :)

      Most cardboard fun I've had since I was 5!

      I am really happy with this purchase, it's even more fun than I hyped it up to be. It's like origami and video games combined, and I've always loved both. It's simple but so captivating, and it's all the more rewarding to play with something you put together yourself. Plus, they make great party games for everyone weather you are used to playing games or not. My grandfather never liked games for as long as I can remember because he always thought they were too complicated, but he happily took to these games and spent an hour fishing on TV while his 4 yr old great grandson was giving him tips. This is a definite must buy for any switch owner!

      Video games and building kits like Lego K,nex were my favorite toys as a kid. Nintendo LABO is a great combination of both. The cardboard is surprisingly sturdy all things considered and the builds were a lot of fun. The games themselves are a little light on content but I'd assume that's because the focus is on creation. The ability to make your own creations is awesome and provides limitless possibilities. I can't wait for the next LABO kit! My only complaint is how slow the instructions play even when sped up. Also, the music during the instruction screens get old fast as you will likely listen to it for about 8-10 hours if you build everything.
