Mattel View-Master Deluxe overview

The Mattel View-Master Deluxe VR Viewer is a virtual reality headset for smartphones made by Mattel, a toy manufacturer based in the US. The View-Master Deluxe VR viewer is an update of the original View-Master.

This easy-to-use VR headset is suitable for kids over 7 years old. Users must hold the device up to their face as there are no head straps. This is voluntary so that children do not use the View-Master for too long, avoiding extensive screen exposure.

The View-Master viewer is compatible with all smartphones with a maximum screen size of 6 inches.

Users enjoy this budget VR headset for the nostalgia of the old View-Master, but also because the design is sturdy and kid-friendly.
