This whole thing is being marketed toward kids.

In an interview with The OP, Nintendo U.K. explained that Nintendo Labo is primarily aimed at players aged seven to 12, with a focus on bringing families together and making toys with friends, family, and siblings.

Build a robot suit for your entertainment. The Robot kit lets you make your own robot, controllable via backpack and a headset that looks suspiciously like a VR headset, which could be part of the reason Nintendo has stated that the company isn't interested in pursuing VR going forward.
