First you convert your Switch console into a headset with the VR Goggles Toy-Con kit (it has some plastic parts to keep the lenses in place as well as the usual cardboard), then you attach the other Toy-Con creations to start playing. "Or, if you want an even broader experience right away, you can purchase the full Nintendo Labo VR Kit, which features six VR Toy-Con projects in one package". The VR Starter Set, meanwhile, includes the Switch software, but only the materials needed to build the VR Goggles and Blaster. The VR Kit will retail for $79.99. This set includes the Nintendo Switch software, plus all the components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster, as well as the Screen Holder and Safety Cap and is said to be a "great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR". The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster and complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be available in stores on 12 April.

Nintendo Labo kits consist of pre-made cardboard cutouts that gamers must assemble in order to experience the product's software.

The VR kit isn't a traditional virtual reality headset, but aesthetically in line with Google Cardboard as the rumors stated. "These 'Toy-Con" kits join the three previous releases; the Variety kit, Robot kit, and Vehicle kit.

The set can be expanded with two expansion sets at $20 a pop.
