My Thoughts on The Oculus Rift

oculus-rift 1

Hey there it’s me Mr Turtle and recently I got to see an Oculus Rift. If you do not know what an Oculus Rift is then look on this Wikipedia page to find out about it.

It is a virtual reality gaming headset. It is a box-like machine that you put on your face. There are two screens where your eyes are and you plug it into your laptop or computer. If you are playing a video game, instead of using your mouse to look around, you move your head.

Me and my dad went to see one of his friends who owns an Oculus Rift and we got to play with it. We played a number of different games. The first game we got to play was a space game where you are a rocket ship and you use your head to move, so if you look up then the rocket would go up. You press the space bar to shoot the other rockets out of space.

We also played a horror game, a roller-coaster that never ended and a house game where you run about the house. Some games I felt a bit sick in but apart from that it was really cool and I give it 5 Turtles out of 5.

Review: KOR Geomag

8 Jan

Happy New Year! I have just started school again after the Christmas holidays.

Just before Christmas I had a big parcel which arrived in the post. I got to review KOR Geomag.

We were sent KOR Geomag Tazoo Paco (the green one on the left) and Proteon Blatta (the blue one on the right).

Tazoo and Proteon are two different ranges – Tazoo is a bit younger and more animal-based and Proteon is a bit more like a battle figure.


I used to have Geomag and it was basically a lot of magnetic metal balls and sticks and they would stick together and you could create stuff with it.

But this new Geomag thing called KOR Geomag is very different to the original Geomag but it is still magnetic and still fun. There is a big magnetic ball in the middle, and other pieces clip around this. You can move them around and make all sorts of shapes, animals and figures.

Here is a video showing how they came to earth

Here is me making an oval out of the Proteon set:


Tazoo and Proteon are both suitable from age 5. I showed them to my friends who thought they were really cool.

Moving it around is a bit like moving a Rubik’s cube. You can twist it in all directions.

Because the pieces are not connected, it falls apart quite a lot which can make you sad. It can get quite frustrating. But all the shapes you can create are cool. It’s quite stiff to turn and sometimes gets stuck but if you keep on turning it then it will eventually turn. I like that the Blatta makes an oval shape.

I like the idea of this toy because it’s different to other toys and very original and the cool little battles you can have with them. It would make a great birthday present. I like putting the extra little bits together and seeing what I can create.

KOR Geomag are not in many toy shops yet so I was very pleased to be one of the first people to try them out. They will be in more shops soon and the sets cost from £25. You can also get these toys from Amazon.

The Hobbit review ILLUSTRATED

4 Dec

Hello – Mr Turtle here.The Hobbit illustrated

I have been sent The Hobbit, but it is a new illustrated version with really nice pictures that are very well done.

I previously reviewed the BBC Audio book of The Hobbit and I have been listening to that so I know the story. I was very pleased to get my own copy of The Hobbit to read.

I really like this book because there are a lot of illustrations so if you get confused about what’s happening, or if you’ve forgotten what’s happened before, you can see what’s going on.

Most pages have a colour picture on them. Some of the words are a bit strange but it is not too hard to read.

The book is a big hardback, nearly A4 size. It smells very nice! It would make a nice Christmas present for Hobbit fans.

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein, illustrated by Jemima Catlin is out now and costs £20

My adventures! :) !

14 Nov

Hi – I have had a very busy time since the last post. And that’s what this post is about.

Firstly I went to a place called Bowles. I went to Bowles for 1 week for a school trip. It’s a place where you do activities all the time and you get really really tired. Like when we first got there we had lunch and then the moment after that we were already doing raft building. These are just some of the activities that we did:

  • Skiing
  • Canoeing
  • Rock climbing
  • Orienteering
  • Swimming
  • Going through rocks
  • Night walk
  • The Leap of Faith (jumping off a very high wobbly platform)ulster-museum-sugar
  • Treasure hunt

I also went to Ireland for 5 days. It was really fun at Ireland because we went to see the Titanic exhibition and went to museums. In the Ulster Museum they had thousands of sugar cubes that you could make buildings out of. They also had around it massive structures, like temples and Quidditch pitches (at least that’s what it looked like) to give you ideas. I built a mini temple ruin.

At Halloween I went out Trick or Treating with my friend Dr Rainbows. I dressed up as a vampire with a bin bag cape.

Finally, for one of my homeworks at school I had to build an Anderson Bomb Shelter, but I built mine in Minecraft. It took me a while to make it but I have now finished.
