Back in the bygone era before videogames, “playing” symbolized shafting around with physical toys–action fleshes, dolls, imperfections, whatever. In my home it signifies swerving wrapping paper tubing into swords and making your leader with them.( Sorry, Dad .) When gaming consoles came along, though, play for numerous boys, myself included, got a lot more sedentary. Nintendo’s recent list of Switch peripherals–known as Labo–attempt to rectify that problem, using the same smell of engineering that stimulates kids to turn packing materials into toys.
