7.6 / 10.0

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit is a solid introduction to the world of Switch-powered cardboard craftables. It may get a bit tedious and repetitive during its laborious building and simplistic play sessions, but the creative freedom it allows once you dig a little deeper is truly something extraordinary.

The potential seems limitless and while Labo may not be a video game – and in that sense will provide little relief to Switch owners looking for something new to play – it could well be the next big thing. For big kids as well as little ones.

Nintendo Labo is a great tool for learning and creation, but the games themselves lack lasting appeal.
