Nintendo Labo Robot Kit
Read Full Review
The Robot Kit is a taste of where Labo can go, since it literally lets you step into the shoes of a giant bot. It’s the most advanced Labo concept yet -- the big downside is that it takes forever to build.
- Shows how advanced Labo can be
- Arm and leg controls are surprisingly immersive
- Offers a deeper gaming experience than other Labo Kits
- It takes forever to build
- Expensive at $80 on its own
- Might be a tough fit for adults

Instead of five unique, cardboard Toy-Cons, this kit has a single 4-hour project. Your mission is to construct a complex backpack, headset, and string-tethered controls for your feet and hands. It’s very fun, but more about the gameplay than discovery.Polygon80Nintendo Labo reviewThis is a product that will appeal to young children, potheads, makers and teenagers. Nintendo’s uncanny ability to offer experiences that are so strange while feeling so good has rarely been put to better use.The Verge80AN INCREDIBLE LEARNING TOOL THAT'S A BLAST TO PLAYI’d recommend the variety kit over the robot kit. The large number of toys you can build means more flexibility for creating new things.Stuff80Nintendo Labo reviewIt demands patience, but Labo is a seriously impressive new development in family-friendly gaming.The Independent80NINTENDO LABO REVIEWThe robot kit, while undoubtedly the most impressive of the two boxes – it uses a complex system of weights and cameras to know where your feet and arms are, and allow you to control a robot – is also probably the most limited of them, too. So if you're buying one, I fully recommend getting the variety kit and then getting the robot one once you're done.
