Pink Nintendo Switch Cover Review

switchfinal1

I’ve been spending lots of time searching for new accessories for my Nintendo Switch and so far (at least color-wise) choices are limited. That’s to be expected, since the Switch is relatively new but there are a few super cute options available if you’re willing to wait a little longer. I purchased a pink silicone cover for my switch, as well as Joy Con covers, from Amazon.

I got each item from a different vendor, when I ordered them there were no complete silicone cover sets but hopefully some will be available in the future. The console case  is $5.29 on Amazon. You can get the case here: WinnerEco Nintendo Switch Case – Pink.  As you can tell by the two pictures I posted above, depending on the lighting the pink can look quite different. I would say it’s closer to a salmon pink than a bubble gum pink.

The case lines up perfectly with the switch buttons and kickstand in the back. My only gripe, and you could argue it’s a big one, is that it’s quite loose on the back part of the console. When I put it into my case, it slips some and I have to adjust it. I don’t notice it as much as I’m playing though which is a bonus, but be aware that it’s not a tight fit at all.

The Joy Con covers cost $3.40 and you can purchase them here: Alloet Gamepad Protective Silicone Case Covers. The controller covers took a bit longer to arrive (about two weeks) and they fit *almost* perfectly. There is a bit of the Joy Con exposed near the seam but aside from that it’s a pretty good fit. What I like most about these covers is how cushioned the back grip is.

If the Switch is laying flat, the back grips elevate it slightly, which is not a huge deal and gives extra support if the kick stand is engaged.

The case a joy con covers are both comfortable and super lightweight. I don’t know how comfortable I’d feel about dropping my Switch and it being completely intact but I think it’ll be a good protection from scratches and the occasional light bump. If you have small kids, this might not be the best solution for them. img_6822-e1502734250951.jpg

 

Lastly, I purchased the super cute paw print thumb caps! Amazon has a ten piece set in five colors for ten bucks (Available here) or you can get just the two piece set for $5.29 here: 2PCS Silicone Analog Controller Thumb Stick Grips Cap.

I’ve had these the longest and they’re holding up really well. They fit perfectly over the thumbsticks although depending on the game you’re playing they may rotate (but won’t come off) during gameplay which is not a big deal in my opinion. The pink matches up with the joy con/console cover so all three pieces make a great set! Hope you found this review helpful and be on the lookout for my YouTube video review coming soon.
