VR apps for kids aren’t really much out there but with the few that are available online, I’ve curated a list of the best virtual reality apps for kids . These apps are fun , very interactive and would keep your kids busy for a very long time in the virtual world . These apps are also very safe for kids to use and play with.
It’s very important to note that one of the of the hardest apps to develop are vr apps for kids. The developers need to check the genre and also decide the best type of actions that would be good for the children and also consider how the apps can help the children develop their brain quickly
In general , even in adults virtual reality apps can can cause motion sickness and sometimes seizures for epileptic adults and children as well. That’s part of the reason why the number of vr apps for kids are way smaller compared to the ones for adults.
The games undergo a lot of scrutiny, multiple tests, and are forced to meet up with extremely high and strict standards before it is fully developed and released for people to download and use.
Nevertheless here are the top VR apps for kids I’ve selected for you and they are the best you can find out there:
Currently Available On: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift
This app takes you to an old-time arcade that comes with a Skee-Ball and the claw crane games with prizes. I know you probably felt that those games were rigged in such a way nobody would win but you still kept playing so you could win the stuffed teddy bear.
Just imagine you could have your own personal game arcade that comes with games like Whack-a-Mole, Skee-Ball, Claw machine, and all the other classic games? . Well you’re in luck as the pierhead arcade comes with all of it.
Pierhead Arcade comes with all those arcade games you spent a lot on , and it still gives you prize redemption tickets you can use to select your price at the counter
This one is definitely fun time on its own and would keep kids really engaged

Tilt Brush VR

If you ever used a windows laptop or computer , there is a very high chance that you tried using the paint software on your computer and majority of those your awkward works of art never really saw the light of day and most times you just sent it into the recycle bin without thinking twice.
Now with Tilt brush vr app your kids can unleash the creative parts of them and make a variety of awesome and totally hilarious paintings in 3D. The limits to what your little boy or girl can do is unlimited. They can paint with a variety of different brush strokes, paint with the light, add as many stars as they want, and even paint with streaks of burning fire but never mind about the fire, it’s just within the app. It won’t get out lol.
Cloudlands Mini Golf VR
Currently Available On: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, OS VR
Cloudlands VR Minigolf brings mini golf to the virtual world and trust me they’ve done an amazing job at creating a very immersive virtual reality experience
The theme of Cloudlands Minigolf is quite bright and very colorful and it does not stop there. The controls are extremely easy to learn and use but it doesn’t mean it would be that easy to play the game. The game can be extremely chanllenging and frustrating but it’s the frustration that makes it fun to play.
The mini golf courses are that come within the game are pretty challenging, but the real deal is the game’s course creation mode. This means your kids can create their very own virtual mini golf course so you won’t bother about them tearing up your backyard to do that.
Kids can even share their mini golf courses with the world when they have finished making their masterpiece. They can also play on mini golf courses made by other children

It’s a very exciting game for kids and is also very fun for even adults as well. The game is free and is available on both Android and iOS. On the Oculus Rift Store it costs around 3 dollars and believe me it’s totally worth every dime and penny you decide to spend on it
Don’t Buy The iPhone SE In Nigeria Until You Read This
So the iPhone SE 2020 was announced a couple of weeks ago and the reviews were pretty interesting considering how the “fruit” company prices their products. Don’t get me wrong if I say Apple is the only fruit company that doesn’t sell fruits, no hard feelings iSheeps .
iPhone SE 2020 Release Date
Let’s be honest, ever since the coronavirus outbreak many people around the world have been laid off. You can picture the recent issue with Access Bank Nigeria here, and the same is happening all around the world. The new iPhone SE costs about $399 (That’s roughly around N175,000) which I’ll say is quite a lot in this part of the world considering the situation we’re in.
You get the drift right. In general I expect that most people here would prefer to pay for food to put on the table instead of buying a new phone like in some parts of the world. But the second-generation iPhone SE starts at $399 and in the US, some individuals might have the feeling of being “rich” after receiving their stimulus check from the government.
Eligible individuals will receive up to $1,200 and an additional $500 for each qualifying child. So all it takes is an extra payment for one child to afford either the 64GB model ($399) or the 128GB variant ($449).
The 256GB model is priced at $549. With the global economy possibly heading into recession, we would expect to see consumers holding on to their current smartphones for longer than they usually do.
Nevertheless, Please don’t get a new phone till this is over, not the iPhone SE 2020 unless it’s totally necessary if you are in any part of the world, whether you’re receiving stimulus packages or not. Get some food and stay indoors.
By the way the iPhone SE ships on May 13th, just keep that in mind.

Vivo announces Exynos processor smartphone with 5G connection up to 3.55Gbps
Vivo presented today during an event in China, its new smartphone Vivo X30. This smartphone stands out thanks to the presence of the Exynos 980 processor, the first to support dual-mode 5G (SA / NSA). Support for both 5G ‘bands’ will allow you to achieve better performance with regard to mobile internet speed and stability.
In fact, the manufacturer promises impressive performance at speeds up to 3.55Gbps using 5G networks. As for the choice of the Exynos 980 processor, they had little choice, as this is the only chip in production that supports dual-mode 5G.
Unfortunately, during the announcement of the Vivo X30, the manufacturer did not disclose any further information about its specifications. It was just revealed that it will be marketed during December in China. They have also confirmed that it will reach several European markets that already have a stable 5G network.
Alleged Vivo X30 Specifications
Even though official information about the specifications of the Vivo X30 has not been revealed, there are already several leaks and rumors about this smartphone. So we already have a good idea of what you can offer users.
The Vivo X30 should come with a 6.5 “inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution, 90Hz refresh rate and built-in fingerprint reader. The Exynos 980 processor will be supported by up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal memory.
In the photographic segment, this smartphone will not disappoint either. It is believed that it will have a total of four cameras on its rear panel: 64MP + 13MP + 8MP + 2MP. Dedicated to selfies, will be a 32MP front camera.
It was also revealed that it will have a generous 4,500mAh battery with support for charging at 30W / 22.5W.
Despite being a mid-range smartphone (thanks to its processor), the Vivo X30 should have quite impressive specifications. As for its price, it is believed to be between € 410 and € 460.
