Young Boy Crafts A Switch Out Of Cardboard Because His Mum Wouldn’t Buy A Real One

A fifth-grader in Japan crafted a Switch out of cardboard, complete with inter-changeable accessories, after his mum wouldn’t buy him the real thing.

Twitter user @fraise_ama, the young boy’s older sister, shared a video clip of his masterpiece, whilst also sharing that her little brother dreams of being a video game creator one day.

The cardboard version he has created is definitely impressive, so who knows what he will create in the future!

    this one time…when i was younger… i built an entire skate park out of cardboard. it had stair sets, ledges, a bowl…. i even took plastic hangers to make hand rails. nobody gave a shit and nobody ever thought id be a park designer when i got older. should have filmed it and put it on the internet.

  6. Maybe she won’t let him buy him one because everyone has one. This kid is pure genius for making the cardboard out of it.

    “Reggie, what are your two cents on the Japanese kid who crafted a Switch out of cardbox? It wouldn’t hurt Nintendo giving the little boy a real Switch, right?”

    Reggie Fils-Aime, CEO of NoA:
    “Nintendo is all about passion, and what you play, when you play, and how you play. Emotions mean everything to us, and we feel accomplished by the fact that we instilled passion into that little kid. This is our mission: make people dream, and make it by the best way possible. We firmly believe our vision is the one to be shared, and the one to be perpetrated: giving people what we want, the way we believe things have to be conducted. We are alive and kicking in the business, spreading our word and keeping ourselves relevant to deliver emotions and drive people towards the best way gaming can assume. When it comes to make people laugh, when it comes to make families and friends get together… This is our fuel, this is what drive every single decision at Nintendo. We, at Nintendo headquarters, strive every day, every moment, to make the simplest approach becomes the most beautiful solution people can experience.”

      Omg. That was genius. And exactly what he would say, word for word. I’m turning off my phone. Everything else I read today will be a disappointment.

    3. I wonder how many times Reggie (or any other big head at Nintendo) talked like this, just to avoid saying “we don’t give two shits about other people (unless they make better gives games than us for free, without our permission)”.

  19. Doesn’t Nintendo’s own R&D make mockups like that?
    Maybe we have a future hardware designer for the big N.

    This is what a young mind is capable of when its potential isn’t wasted on playing video games.
