Summer is a tough time. Kids are off school, planning holidays can be a logistical nightmare and the weather is just too unpredictable. We want to do our bit to help keep the kids entertained this summer, so take a look at these Nintendo products and look forward to a bit of peace and quiet.
The Nintendo Switch is the perfect gadget to keep boredom at bay this summer. Whether you’re playing at home or out and about, kids of all ages can gather round this nifty little handheld games console and share the fun.
Great for spicing up family occasions, plug the Switch into the TV when conversation has run dry, or when everyone’s falling asleep to one of Granddad’s stories. Then, when you settle down with a soap, they won’t have to kick up a fuss. They can simply take the Switch console out of the dock and continue the fun wherever they want.
If it’s raining, the fun doesn’t have to be cancelled! Bring everyone inside and get Nintendo Labo out. This interactive cardboard kit links up to their Nintendo Switch console, so they can get busy building different Toy-Cons. From pianos to motorbikes – your kids will have so much fun crafting anything and everything using just their Switch, some cardboard and string!
To take things up a notch, transform your kids into skyscraper-wrecking, 100-foot tall, epic robots! This insane kit tracks their movements and replicates it on screen as they take on a variety of challenges. And with the Toy-Con Garage, they can experiment with their own cardboard creations. They’ll spend hours tinkering with their own Toy-Cons - even if the Sun comes bursting out again.
Road trip time. Pack up the car and enjoy some peace and quiet on the motorway by keeping the children busy with a Nintendo 2DS handheld console. You won't have to stop every thirty minutes if they're having amazing gaming journeys themselves.
With a huge library of games, they'll be drifting through the racetrack, travelling to far off worlds and battling for the fate of the Universe to name but a few incredible adventures. Not bad when you're stuck on the M1 waiting for traffic to miraculously clear.
