We’ve rarely been more excited about the news that we can buy cardboard and rubber bands.
Nintendo Labo and its cardboard creations were announced back in January, and after some consternation over how much we’d be paying for cardboard, once the software had been factored in, it turned out that it wasn’t as exorbitant as it first appeared. Nintendo has confirmed the prices and given us one less thing to worry about by revealing that all of the kits can be bought separately.
With the tendency rubber bands have to go walk-abouts and the questionable structural integrity of what is essentially just very stiff paper when faced with excited children, replacement cardboard, stickers, and accessory packs are just the ticket. You can order them directly from Nintendo from $1.99 for a reflective sticker sheet to $13.99 for a partial robot kit.
The kits are split into multiple parts, so you don’t have to buy an entire robot set if you end up sitting on Labo’s robot knobs, for example, and there are a couple of different options for accessory packs and stickers.
So far, the announced Toy-Cons include an RC car, a motorbike, a fishing rod, a piano, and a robot kit.
The first two kits are available to order today, in addition to a customisation set for those who’d prefer to make their own creations. You can pick up the variety kit and robot kit right now, which both come with a free official Nintendo Labo marker set and pencil case.
