Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit
Top Critic Average
The Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit is easily the best all-round experience that I have had so far with Nintendo’s new line of interactive make, play and discover kits. Remarkable to build, fascinating to learn how it all works and, importantly, content rich compared to the last two kits, this could be the start of a cardboard revolution.
Nintendo Labo stays a nice to to fool around with. It is mostly focussed at children so for more seasoned gamers there is not much of a challenge. It is a great game with amazing possibilities but, it is not for everyone a great fit.

Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit is the most challenging and intriguing to piece together so far, and the set that has the most longevity - their software/adventure pieces may not be the most in-depth RPG/open-world fest, but it's fun and puts the kit to good use. The wheel and joystick, in particular, are what's likely to carry momentum going forward - the Toy-Con that could easily be applied to future games and concepts.
If you have children, or if you are a huge child at heart yourself, I couldn't recommend this more. It's unashamed fun, and completely worth the price just in terms of the sheer amount of time you can get out of it if you do everything it has to offer.
Another cardboard kit for Nintendo Switch puts children in the driver's seat of a car, submarine and plane. And it is fun.

The Labo Vehicle Kit is a remarkable craft kit and game that lets you build your own steering wheel, joystick, and even submarine controls to control vehicles on your Nintendo Switch.
The third Labo kit is perhaps the best one yet; it offers a solid building experience and a genuinely entertaining way to control three distinct modes of transport, as well as a fleshed-out gameworld which is not only packed with things to do, but is augmented by a range of mini-game modes which will provide many hours of enjoyment – although the multi-player ones require you to have a second Vehicle Kit to hand, which might not be feasible for everyone.
The Labo Vehicle Kit is a meticulously designed and often fascinating building experience. The Toy-Con models fit together perfectly and encourage curiosity within anyone who engages with them. While the gaming element is an improvement over previous Labo Kits, it's not going to suck you in for countless hours. As an intriguing way to while away the hours over a weekend, the Labo Vehicle Kit shines, but don't expect much more unless you're planning to flex your creative muscles in the Toy-Con Garage.
We spent two weeks with the Labo Vehicle Kit and it drove us a bit mad. The construction of the car, plane, and submarine is as great as ever, but the open world game at the heart of it is a bit of a dud.
