If you have received a Teleporter Adventures kit through your child’s school, you will need a smartphone (iPhone 5 (iOS 8) and above or as Android 4.4.3 (Android) and above) to download the app called ‘The Teleporter Adventures’ to use with ‘The Teleporter’ virtual reality headset.
The Teleporter and storybook have been designed to work together to teach your child the difference between a ‘need’ and a ‘want’. The content has been adapted from our Start Smart Year 1 in-school program, as a fun way for you and your child to learn together at home.

The app in in virtual reality mode is not suitable for children with epilepsy, or under the age of 5. Please stay seated while using the app. Parental supervision during Teleportation is recommended.
