In the 1950s, Nintendo reached out to the American animator Walt Disney to incorporate his cartoon characters into its playing cards. The deal was a huge success, leading to millions of card packs sold and TV commercial campaigns. Protection is a theme you’ll hear often when talking about Switch accessories. As your favorite smartphone probably recommends a screen protector, so does your Nintendo Switch. This high-def screen protector was designed specifically for a Switch.

Though the Disney deal was initially quite profitable, it also relied on the youth market. In the late ’60s, as the toy market contracted, Nintendo tried other business ventures, including a taxi service and an instant rice product. Thankfully, a game-changing industry was about to be born: electronic games. If you’re traveling by car, save your hand strength with this silicon mount for your console. It’s designed specifically for a Switch so it won’t harm the surface. Easy access to the buttons is still possible thanks to the adjustable strap.
