Enter the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest

Nintendo launches a Creators Contest for its inventive new cardboard construction toy, Nintendo Labo.



Nintendo Labo

Nintendo has launched a Creators Contest for its inventive new cardboard construction toy, Nintendo Labo.

Although each Nintendo Labo kit has its own specific set of constructions to build – such as piano, robot, and fishing rod – its Toy-Con Garage mode helps users to create their own inventions.

The Nintendo Labo Creators Contest has three award categories, and is open to My Nintendo members in North America.


The first category recognises the most creative decoration of a Toy-Con kit. The others reward the use of the Toy-Con Garage to either mod an existing Labo kit, or create a brand new invention from scratch.

Nintendo Labo Creators Contest categories

  • Best Decorated Toy-Con – Enter by May 11, 2018
  • Best Toy-Con mod using Toy-Con Garage – Enter by May 25, 2018
  • Best original invention using Toy-Con Garage – Enter by June 15, 2018

Prizes on offer include additional Labo kits, a Labo Creators jacket, and a framed certificate signed by Nintendo developers. The full rules of entry can be found on the official Labo website.

Nintendo Labo launched in the US and Canada last week, and comes to Europe on Friday, April 27, 2018.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
