What Nintendo Labo achieves is, at its core, exactly what Wii Sports achieved for the Wii in 2006. It encourages non-video gamers the chance to get involved with something their children love.

The Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit is just what it says on the tin - one that serves up a variety of unique and interactive toys to build.

Nintendo Labo is definitely a fantastic new innovation from Nintendo. It’s the perfect excuse to build some cool stuff with your family (or in my case, on your own), and it comes with pretty easy to follow instructions (IKEA should really take a leaf from Nintendo here).
