Kids React to LABO

Since some people were curious on whether or not most children would be interested.


If Zipzo's kid like the one in blue I could understand his pessimism.

Oh, it's Kids React® to Labo, not kids react to Labo. Oh well.

I guess I'll share my son's video again, since it sort of fits the thread:

A couple of those kids were trying too hard to be grown up. I've not really known any kids to be concerned with the price of stuff if they aren't paying for it lol.
Kids from poorer families will express consciousness of value. Kids who are taught the value of what they trade with other kids figure it out especially after being burned with a bad trade.

that's cute. I hope he got to play with it after you built it.

I was watching a review done by a family and I was left with the impression the father bought it for himself. He did everything :)

Is he happy with it? :)
Yeah, he loves it. We've just done the RC cars and the fishing so far. He and his cousins all had a ball, especially with the fishing.

Plus, it makes for great disciplinary leverage. ;)

Funny you should ask that, haha. Right after this video, he didn't say thank you, so I made him wait till the next day to open it. I just played chess with him instead.

But once we got building it, I did most of the work (he's 5), but he always wanted to help, and his cousins helped, too. And after they were built, he and his cousins were mostly the ones to play with it. There's also a video of him fishing, but even though I love it, I'm pretty sure it's kinda boring to anyone who's not his dad, so.

Damn, these kids are pretty well-spoken and opinionated. I can't say the same for kids when I was their age.

It does look like a lot of fun. I probably won't buy it for myself, but my nephew is SO getting the variety pack for his birthday. He went berserk for the first trailer.

I feel like people would be bored of that in about an hour(not including the hours it apparently takes to build)

Interesting that the girls were more receptive.

Those two boys at the end had me rolling. Lol

I appreciate that the kid with a black jacket was somehow the most receptive guy there

How does the cardboard feel on your hands? It looks so uncomfortable to hold.

Lol @ calling this little kid edgy cause he doesn't think it's worth $70. He even liked two of the three games they played

I can find them in a trash can.
I have Amazon boxes at home.
I can find them at the end of the street corner right now.
The Switch already costs a lot, and you want $70 for cardboards? Chill Nintendo.

I can't tell if they are fake quotes that were given to them ahead of time or these kids know how to throw punches and shades already.

I was always price conscious from a young age. I wouldn't say I grew up poor, but my family didn't have a lot of money either. There was also other kids to feed besides me.
I always looked at price before I asked for a toy/game and shied away from asking for things that were too expensive. Mind you, my parents never told me they wouldn't get me something cause they couldn't afford it, I just felt bad asking for things that were priced too high

Yup. It's basically a 60 dollar game with 10 of accessories.

I love what I've played so far. Games definitely too simple and feature light to hold my interest, but building was so much fun and I've only built one thing.
If that's the case, then it seems to be well worth the price if you plan on getting it for your kid.

They didn't let them make anything, just play with the finished products? Kind of missing the whole point of Labo if you only do the play portion

As a kid I was always wary of the prices of the things I asked for.

My parents once woke me up in the middle of the night to surprise me with a present. It was a Sega Mega Drive, but a knock off and not the original. The gesture alone had me in tears, even though I immediately recognized it was fake.

In the end it's all about the circumstances.

I can't imagine wanting to play with any of the Labo creations for more than a few minutes after making them, even as a kid. Which a couple of them say. But hey, it's a cool time while it lasts.

How difficult is for kids to build the cardboards? 8/10 years old could do it by themselves? I was thinking about gifting the LABO to my cousin's sons, but I don't want to help them build. building things was the best part as a kid, so if it is too difficult maybe I won't gitf them the LABO
