Have you tried out the new VR Goggles for kids from Spur Steak Ranches yet?
I don’t know about you but I love anything that keeps my kids busy and entertained for any length of time, so when we got these Spur Goggles I was so chuffed to see how well they entertained my kids!
They cost just R20 from the Spur and all you do is download some virtual reality games and videos onto your phone and then you pop your phone into the cardboard reality goggles and off you go!
You can download some cool virtual reality apps directly from the Spur website or you can take a browse around the Google Playstore to see what other VR goggles apps you can find.
On the Spur website it says that the following phones are compatible:
- Samsung: Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S7 and Nexus.
- Apple: iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s.
- Google: Nexus 4 and 5.
- Motorola: Moto X
I have a really cheap Samsung Smartphone so there were a good few apps that were not compatible with my phone, so if this happens to you too then browse around because there will be something that works on your Smartphone.
You can get games but you can also try out the educational apps, like the Aquarium which was hands down my kids favourite and the one that they spent the most time on. You see a whole lot of sea creatures and when you focus on one the app gives information about that sea animal.
Here are my kids playing with the Spur Goggles with the Aquarium app:
The next favourite that we downloaded, which my kids said was their favourite but they very clearly enjoyed the sea creatures more was the Jurassic Park app.
It really captivated them in the beginning but then my daughter started getting annoyed because there weren’t a lot of dinosaurs and they barely moved!
So in a nutshell, lots of fun to be had and at such a low cost that I highly recommend that you give this a go! I already posted a few videos on social media and some moms have come back to me saying that their kids have also had a ball… I am also assuming that they had better phones than me because they said that they had access to all the apps!
