The Nintendo Switch video game console was easily one of the biggest surprises of 2017. The company’s previous-generation Wii U was a tremendous flop and people were skeptical that Nintendo would ever recover. Well, recover is an understatement. It’s been nearly a year since the Switch was released and it’s still the hottest console on the planet. And it’s about to get even hotter in a few months when Nintendo releases its first Labo kits for the Switch.

Nintendo Labo consists of DIY kits that come as sheets of cardboard. You pop the pieces out, use the instructions on your Switch to assemble them, and you’re left with incredible interactive video games that merge the physical and virtual worlds. Here’s a video that shows Nintendo Labo kits in action:

Kits are going to be extremely difficult to come by when they’re released, so definitely preorder Nintendo’s first two Labo kits right now on Amazon to ensure you get them on day 1.
