I bought my son a Nintendo Switch for Christmas, then started looking for an extra set of Joy Cons with a base so that he can play games more easily with his sister or a friend. I liked that this set looked different than the standard colors, and the bright colors would be appealing for kids. This set is easy to take on and off the Switch, with a button/peg design like the factory Joy Cons. I think it will be very easy for a child to do the same. As an adult, I prefer these to the original set, because they feel more substantial, and the design rests on my hands more comfortably than the slimmer and narrower design of the factory set. When on the base, they feel like a more traditional game controller than the original set does. I appreciate that the set comes with a charging cable, as those always seem to get lost. I will be interested to see how my son likes these in comparison to the original set, and I will post an update after Christmas when he has a chance to try them out.
