He’s making a list, checking it twice…this line no longer applies in my household because I live with teenagers. Now that my kids are older, electronics are at the top of their list. I have no doubt that if you have older kids, a husband or just love electronics yourself, Best Buy is the go-to place for the latest gadgets. Seriously, one can spend hours in-store or online perusing through everything they have to offer. And this holiday season, you can bet that’s where I’ll be doing my shopping.
This year’s buzz was all about virtual reality. So, clearly, it was on top of my wishlist. Ahem, my wishlist for the kids of course. So, I was glad to partner with Best Buy to give the new Samsung Gear VR Headset a try.
My kids went crazy over it. They actually worked together to set it up, and by setting up I mean getting it out of the box and reading instructions.
Samsung Gear VR Headset is THE gadget I recommend for every home/family. My family and I spent hours playing with it. And family time for us is a pretty big deal. We all took turns finding games we wanted to try. I did a VR roller coaster, my husband tried a race car VR, and the kids chose scary mummies and Sinister. Watching them scream and freak out was hilarious. You absolutely get transported to a whole other world.
We LOVED this VR and they don’t know it yet, but I’m keeping this unit for my husband and I and getting them each their own. 😉
