It won't stack up to high-end VR headsets, but Nintendo's Labo VR Kit is a surprisingly solid and in-depth introduction to the world of VR.

A thoroughly enjoyable and surprisingly engrossing mix of VR, handicraft, and edutainment.

Despite its limitations, inventive use of the Switch and Joy-Cons pave the way for a novel VR experience that's more about creativity.

At worst, you’ll spend a few hours having fun putting together some charming cardboard toys and seeing what parlor tricks your Nintendo Switch can do with them. At best, you’ll dive into one of the most inexpensive, yet engrossing, VR experiences out there.

Neither gameplay nor contraptions are enough to save uneven, uncomfortable package.

Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit is ingeniously designed. The synthesis of physical cardboard Toy-Con with commensurate digital software creates a tactile and fun virtual reality experience that feels decidedly Nintendo. However, once the initial magic of Labo VR wears off, all that is left is a shallow, oddly assembled lot of minigames that won't last more than an afternoon.

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit is a work of genius, for the most part. The Blaster and Elephant are particular highlights which transforms the way the Nintendo Switch works, but the Fan and the Bird ToyCon are just… somewhat useless. Great for the family, great as a weekend crafting project, and definitely the best Labo kit yet.
