About Nintendo Labo
Nintendo Labo is a series of DIY kits crafted to work with the Nintendo Switch console. By assembling sheets of cardboard into almost anything – a motorbike, a fishing rod, a 13-key piano or even a robot suit – and combining them with the Nintendo Switch console – you will be able to bring your creations to life – from winning a race, catching a fish, to performing a song!
Together with the Nintendo Switch console, the Nintendo Labo kits provide the tools and technology to make fun interactive DIY creations, play with them using the Nintendo Switch and discover and learn how Nintendo Switch technology shapes ideas into reality.
- Make: Transform modular sheets of cardboard into interactive creations called Toy-Con – from a 13-key piano to a motorbike, a robot suit and more.
- Play: After they are built, combine the Toy-Con creations with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers in creative ways to enjoy a variety of gameplay experiences.
- Discover: Learn how Nintendo Switch technology works together with each Toy-Con project. With Toy-Con Garage mode – a feature included with the software in each Nintendo Labo kit – you can design new ways to play with your Toy-Con projects, such as steering the RC Car with the Fishing Rod or using the Motorbike as an instrument. It’s even possible to invent your own Toy-Con creations using common materials from around the house. When you’re finished building, you can personalise your Toy-Con projects with your own stickers, markers and more.
