For a long-time healthcare information has been provided through uninspiring, hard to read leaflets. Little Journey changes this.

We are passionate about helping children and their parents prepare for hospital through fun, interactive and tailored-information that is always at your fingertips. Through games, virtual reality and age-appropriate animations, your child can prepare for what is often a daunting experience in the comfort and safety of their own home.

Little Journey supports children by helping them:
• Explore the hospital in virtual reality at anytime, anywhere.
• Interact with animated characters of hospital staff
• Learn about how and why different pieces of equipment are used

Little Journey helps parents by
• Delivering the right information at the right time.
• Providing small bitesize chunks of information that can be used immediately.
• Helps parents talk to their child about what’s going to happen.
• Uses checklists and nudges to make sure you’re all ready to go.

Designed using years of medical research.

Great app

This app is a great idea. It made my son feel so much at ease before his operation.
He knew what was going to happen when he got to the hospital and what everything was.
It is also great that they can see all round the rooms to.
It looked the same as the picture when we got there so that made him feel happy because it was like he had already been there before.

I was a bit worried when I first heard that I was going to have an operation, but after trying this app out, I'm not worried at all! It made me realize that I wont feel, hear or see any of the operation which has made me feel better.

Good for Toddlers

This is a good app to help your child understand different aspects of going into hospital for surgery especially with the 3D viewer.

Only draw back is how you progress from one screen to the next, and when finding items in 3D mode how do you select them. If you have that information would have got 5 stars.

We’re glad you like Little Journey, but we’re sorry to hear you couldn’t seem to work it in VR mode!

When using the headset, you should be able to trigger the characters by looking at them until the yellow circle completes. In our latest release we’ve added a new ‘How To Use’ video from the Settings screen, which should be able to give you some visual help!
