I was immediately attracted to the creative, bright colored design. My son thought it was "cool" from the minute he laid eyes on it. I sat down with the instructions to figure things out--it took just a few minutes to get it all working. I showed my son how to do it and he understood clearly and had it working, himself, on the first try. Even though I wouldn't call it simple, because it's a complex, neat little toy, it was not complicated to operate, for an adult or older child. (My son is 12.) The varying scenes are great. The space scene is very fun to look at it. My son said he wished it were more interactive, somehow, and that it showed other things, like planets and such. The Ancient Greece was our favorite. We were blown away in how much you truly felt Ike you were there. That was the one my son used to show others when he wanted to show it off to friends and family. He was super excited to share it with others, to let them experience how cool it is! You definitely have to try it yourself to fully understand and appreciate the next world experience. My husband was a little disappointed because it wasn't compatible with his glasses. The base could stand to be just a little wider to accommodate kids with glasses--my husband has a fairly small head, so if a child who was larger, wore glasses, they would have a hard time using it. We used an iPhone 5c and had no trouble setting it up. The extender piece hooked on perfectly and my phone slid right in. Overall, I say this is a fantastic toy. My son and daughter, who is 3, both enjoy it frequently and love sharing it with others. We can't wait to see what other scene options you come out with. My son has already added the additional packs to his Christmas list. Thank you Mattel for another neat toy!

I was originally super excited when I learned that I would be getting a Viewmaster Virtual Reality Starter Pack, however, this product missed the mark. I have personally experienced some more complex virtual reality simulations and knew this product would be more simplistic, but I didn't think it would be as simplistic as it was in reality. First of all, the product works best with smaller phones, like the iPhone 5 and lower. I have an iPhone 6+ and I made my phone fit, but I did not feel comfortable with it. Then, the set up was awful. The app downloaded fine (there are three to choose from), but my phone was installed the opposite way and wouldn't initially work properly. The app and instructions say some lines would appear, but they didn't. After a few attempts I finally got the Viewmaster set up to work, but the sample images (the only "slide" set you get in the starter pack) took a long time to view. From what I can gather, there is only one sample image per slide and you must aim your view at the slide at a very specific angle. My sample image for the app I chose was probably some sort of ruins. Essentially, the product worked to view the sample image after about 30 minutes of downloading, redone loading, closing and syncing. I was disappointed with what was available from a product that is supposed to start you off, much less with what a child would expect. Children of any age will need lots of help and supervision (especially if a phone of any value is involved; the holder is sturdy but the instructions remind you that the product is not a protective cover) and will get frustrated/bored quickly.

Just bought one

By KS star guy

from wichita

Comments about Mattel 1001134 View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack:

Very cool! Plays content from Google Cardboard as well as from Mattel.
The Space pack is really cool. Lots of information on the planets/moons/stars/other.
The 3D spacecraft info is accurate. Content people DID their research!
Lots of content in each pack.

Cons:
The cellphone is totally enclosed. Must be the correct size, and will get warm!
MUST have a strong WiFi connection when using Mattel's Experience Packs.
(Weak signal = low data rate = might not load)
no interocular or focus adjustments. (one size fits all approach)
Uses cellphone battery very fast.

Neutral items:
eye-catching colors (bright red/white), no others
No head straps, but does have a hand strap

      Is awesome, bought at store because I did do my research before buying I am ofcourse completely happy. For people below that gave one star review... it's a virtual reality headset. Not an actual viewmaster.

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack:

      My 7 year old granddaughter had this on her wish list so I was happy to oblige. The price seemed reasonable and the toy took me back in time. Well, things have certainly changed. I ordered this online and was not aware until I received the package that a smartphone, Samsung Galaxy or other cell phone is required to work the View-Master. My, my, my... Needless to say I returned the toy and replaced with other items that my lovely granddaughter can play with that does not require a cell phone!!!

      By Baummer mom

      from Ohio

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack:

      Do not waste your money on this complete piece of junk. We spent hours trying to get it to work on our phones and when we finally did, it was a huge let down. Not nearly as cool as the introduction video makes it out to be. A friend bought the same toy for her son and experienced the same result. We have already returned it and my friend's is on it's way back as well!

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack:

      Should have really looked into this before buying. They have an option to insert your phone in the view finder but, that's saying children have phones and adults should allow their child to use their phone to play? I purchased this on line and unfortunately cannot return as they did not provide the receipt due to multiple shipments in my order. Donated it so hopefully someone will have some use for this. Shame they require your phone to use. There's an app for everything, right?
