Looks amazing. I’m making the fishing rod.

 

Then use it in the new Animal Crossing game.

Very fucking cool. I wish they had shit like that when I was a kid.

 

As someone who teaches children’s art classes, I reckon this will be quite popular with creative crafty wee kids.

This combines my love of both Nintendo and goofy craft projects. I'll probably spend longer colouring it in with felt tips but whatever. It's perfect.

The Guardian: 'Like cardboard Lego': Nintendo Labo turns homemade models into interactive toys

Quote

"The piano, especially, is quite amazing, and takes about two hours to build. The infrared camera on the Joy-Con controller can see reflective strips of tape on the back of the keys, which come into view when a key is pressed, telling the game software to play the right note. Cardboard dials and switches modify the tone and add effects to the sound."

Ingenious but... how much would a toy piano set you back? It’s going to need decent games.

 

A toy piano that you can look inside, take apart and put back together again and see how it works each step of the way? Probably quite a lot. They don't make all those chunky Santa Claus The Movie toys any more except as prestige items for the spawn of rich idiots.

It being cardboard is brilliant. Kids get creative and want to build more things? 

 

What are amazon delivering their parents all the fucking time?

Love these mad bastards.

 

This.

 

This is brilliant, and yet so evil at the same time. Wish it wasn't cardboard.

Everything about this is bloody brilliant. 

 

Amazing use of the Joycon, too. It somehow manages to make 1-2 Switch look even more crap.

I like the remote control thing that turns the console into the controller and the controller into the game.

Man, I wish this was a thing when I was a kid.

 

Cos then I’d have had a Nintendo Switch with BOTW in 1977 and you could keep your fucking cardboard.

Wonderful stuff Nintendo, they really have got their shit together at the moment. Love how this harkens back to their early days of making playing cards too.

So all we need is for someone to share the instructions online ;)

And the game...I'd assume that replacement cardboard would be pretty cheap.

Looks like excellent fun to build.

 

I'll have to show my son tomorrow, after school. I think he might get excited by the robot.
