It may be overshadowed by God of War, but the first two Nintendo Labo kits also launch today (April 20). These kits can be a bit pricey though, with the Variety Kit going for $70 and the Robot Kit for $80. It makes more sense when you consider that Switch games on their own usually cost $60, and Labo comes with a bunch of cardboard accessories. However, one of the things parents have been worried about when considering getting a Labo Kit for their kid(s) is the possibility of having to buy an entirely new kit if one piece of cardboard gets stepped on or torn. These worries can now be set aside, as Nintendo has started selling replacement parts for their Labo Kits.
Searching “Labo” on Nintendo’s online store will show you that there are now several replacement parts available, including specific parts of the Robot Kit or single items from the Variety Kit. For example, if your cardboard house from your Variety Kit breaks, you can buy the single House Cardboard Pack for $5.99, rather than having to buy an entirely new Variety Kit for $70. Individual Robot Kit and Variety Kit parts and cardboard packs run anywhere from $1.99 to $13.99. The Variety and Robot Kits are available now.
