After Nintendo Labo came out, The UPS Store got involved with the new Switch add-on with a special DIY project. A video tweet attracted a lot of attention which showed a special carrying case capable of holding the various Toy-Con creations.

Tracy Spahr from The UPS Store told GamesRadar that the prototype took a team of six people over 12 hours to design and assemble. The case is entirely comprised of seven UPS boxes.

Spahr said of its creation:

“The creative team at EP+Co – The UPS Store social media advertising agency – developed the blueprint, then had the entire piece laser cut. The Toy-Con-Tainer has custom-built spaces for the 5 Labo Toy-Con individual pieces. We also included some extra features, including the secret hatch, lock and key, handle, and moveable wheels to take it on the go.”

“When the Labo was released last week, we noticed there wasn’t a place to store all the Toy Cons. Creating the Labo Toy-Con-Tainer allowed us to pay tribute to a fun brand with the thread that binds us to them being cardboard; in addition, we were able to demonstrate our packing expertise in a fun way.”

Most interesting out of everything Spahr mentioned, The UPS Store is “playing with the idea” of offering the carrying case to the public. “Given the positive feedback and number of requests we received, we are playing with the idea, however no final decision has been made yet,” Spahr said.
