The Nintendo Switch is such an amazing innovation in video gaming. However, it is not often that a video game platform has real world applications. The Nintendo Switch is no ordinary gaming platform. Below is a press release about the new Nintendo LABO which is a special DIY kit that you can build physical games that work with the joycons and the screen. One of the kits even transforms you into a robot and as you move the robot on the screen does too. It is a cool way to use the technology of the Nintendo Switch in such a great way.
Nintendo has put together a preview video to show people these new toys or toycons that you can make and then use with the Nintendo Switch. You can watch that below and then read the full press release below that and if you want to purchase these toys I have links to where you can pre-order them.
At Toy Fair I learned about a new product in the toy/candy market. It is a collectible candy dispenser called Radz. I was given two Radz candy dispensers while at the conference and also one additional one along with extra candy and a set of mystery glasses for my Radz figure for the purpose of a review. Radz are fun and cute. I was drawn to these characters because of their colorful look and the fun way they dispense the candy. Just pull back the hair and out pops the Radz tongue with a piece of tasty candy. The Gluten-free, peanut free candy comes in four flavors, Orange Burst, Apple Smash, Strawberry Splash and Radzberry Crush. I personally can’t taste a huge difference between the four flavors but they are tasty and enjoyable.
