I was sent the above for review. For your holiday gift guide submission, I am thrilled to share that this Samsung Gear VR can be yours for under $100! I was shocked when I read about this product because I had thought that all virtual reality sets were well over $300. And here is one so affordable, everyone can put this on their holiday shopping list!

I took several videos of my boys trying out the Samsung VR. The best video was Peter in a Star Wars scenario. He said he was R2D2, but I could not post that video because of the expletive he uttered when R2 got knocked over. Our son went sky diving, that was fun. Turns out you might enjoy watching the VR watching family member for added entertainment! This is Peter in a haunted house. It gets really good at the end (at 1:34!)!
Did I mention this costs under $100? And this is perfect for all ages! I was going to have my son review this, but after my husband set it up, we could not get it back!
