Set up is quick and easy; all you have to do is download the Virtual Reality Oceans app on your phone (available on the App Store and Google Play) and clip your phone to the adjustable goggles. Viola! Immediately you are transported to another world — look up to see sunlight shining through the ocean “surface” and look down to see you’re standing on the ocean floor.

You will become immersed in the underwater world, with the settings around you moving as you explore the ocean in this one-of-a-kind learning experience with optional guided audio. Discover how a shipwreck becomes a reef, see how the moon affects the tide, and encounter sharks, turtles, whales, and more. It’s almost like you’re hopping on the magic school bus with Ms. Frizzle.

The Virtual Reality Oceans kit comes with a number of additional activities. Aside from the VR experience, the 96-page book itself offers tons of information and great visuals for those kids who can’t get enough of marine life. The book definitely is meant to be read in more than one sitting, so kids can grab a bookmark and enjoy weeks of long-lasting fun from just one kit. The table of contents can help kids keep track of what they’ve learned so far, while providing an organized way for them to skip through if one topic interests them more than another.

The kit also includes five ocean animal scratch art sheets, complete with a scratch tool and brush. Kids can trace the lines to unveil colorful illustrations of different sea creatures or draw their own.

As a solo activity, the Virtual Reality Oceans kit is the perfect gift for kids who love to learn — and have fun doing it. So dive right in!


Kids can take a deep dive into the world’s waters with the power of virtual reality (VR). This kit includes a 96-page book featuring whales, sharks, and more, which kids can immersively experience with the included VR headset and scratch art kit.
