Looking for a fun way to combine screen time with movement? We got the Nintendo Labo robot kit and it was a hit! I was skeptical that it would be one of those toys that overpromises and under delivers but in the end it's actually a really quality product.


In the kit are multiple pieces of carboard with instructions on how to turn them into a backpack, and pulleys for your arms and legs. After taking a couple hours to put it together (exclusively by my 10 year old) you had a get-up that acts as your robot body while you play the assigned game on the screen.


The game works really well with the body and basically you tromp, punch and fly through a time acting like Godzilla destroying everything you can in an allotted time frame. The game requires lots of punching and walking so you do get your heart rate up.
