View-Master Interactive Vision is a home console released by View-Master Ideal Group in 1989 for USA$120. View-Master Ideal Group is most well-known for its View-Master film-slide viewer toys.

The console was using VHS tapes to display video and audio footage to the television. While playing the game, the user made decisions and the games had a different ending based on these decisions, so they were decision making games.

The console had educational characteristics and it was addressed to children. President of View-Master Ideal Group, Arnold Thaler, viewed the console as a "two-way learning and entertainment television system" and was font of it's ability to remember the choices that had been made, allowing for a recap or final score to be provided to the user.

There are 7 games known to be released for the console and 4 of them are based on Sesame Street, 2 from from Jim Henson's Muppets and the last one, Disney's Cartoon Arcade, used footage from classic Disney cartoons.
