Meet Labo: Nintendo’s DIY Cardboard Accessories For The Switch

For kids and kids at heart

Nintendo has announced a new kind of accessory for their fast selling, hand-held Switch console. Labo is a new breed of accessories from the gaming company, which are essentially cardboard sheets that you build into accessories.

Labo kits are available in a variety of configurations, including a cardboard piano, motorcycle handlebars for an accompanying game, a cardboard house and many others.

Each kit comes with everything needed to assemble them, which sometimes includes rubber bands and eyelets (as is the case with the fishing kit) and Switch cartridges that have the software. The kits can be easily assembled by kids, and there’s currently two available in Nintendo’s Labo website: a $70 variety pack as well as a $80 one that allows you to create a wearable robot-simulating suit.

Labo goes on sale on April 20th in the US and April 27th in Europe.
