Back in the bygone era before videogames, “playing” meant bolt around with physical toys–action figures, dolls, glitches, whatever. In my house it entailed turning wrapping paper tubings into swords and hitting your parent with them.( Sorry, Dad .) When gaming consoles came along, though, play for many children, myself included, got a lot more sedentary. Nintendo’s latest situate of Switch peripherals–known as Labo–attempt to rectify that problem, use the same sense of engineering that inspires kids to turn packing materials into toys.
