Cardboard! Who knew it would be so popular? Everyone is looking for the best Nintendo Labo deals because, despite being cardboard, it remains consistently expensive. The recent evolution, in the hands of Nintendo, of a simple packaging material into a top video gaming add-on has been wonderful to witness, and who knows what we’ll be playing when Nintendo finds out about bubble wrap. The available kits are a touch expensive when you consider you’re buying something that might have once made up a takeaway box, so it’s always good to look out for bargains along the way.
Here are the best deals on Nintendo Swicth SD cards, to help you store more games.
Nintendo Labo’s best deals vary depending on which kit you get. Labo’s three launch kits were recently joined by a fourth, the VR Kit, that holds the Switch screen in front of your eyes for some jolly stereoscopic entertainment. Of the others, our favorite is the Robot Kit, which contains enough parts to kit yourself out as a thunderous mech. The Variety Kit produces a house, motorbike, two cars, a fishing rod and a piano that, utilising the Joy-Con controllers, interact with software on the Switch. Then there’s the Vehicle Kit, which gets you building planes, submarines and cars.
Below, we’ve found all the best prices for Labo kits, while elsewhere on Gamesradar+ you’ll find deals on other Nintendo Switch accessories. If you're serious about Labo, expect to see savings during the Amazon Prime Day game deals in July.

Nintendo has plans to offer replacement cardboard kits and templates for anyone who breaks their Toy-Cons. Of course, the whole point of it being cardboard is that you can repair them with tape and glue, but also decorate them to your heart's content. If you want to download the templates to replace your Labo parts, you'll find all the details right here. The templates are FREE, so you can grab them whenever you like.
