Best iPad cases for Kids review
As kids iPad case specialist we have tested several shockproof iPad cases that are shockproof & splash proof. We tested some well known brands like Griffin Survivor case, Gumdrop cases, the Speck iGuy, Koosh, M-edge Supershell, Koosh, Trident Kraken and the Otterbox defender. The iPad case review will help you choosing the right kids ipad cover for you or your school.
The Speck iGuy is great for toddlers, it is easy to hold onto. The iGuy gives you protection when it is dropped. When tested for drops from greater heights we found the iGuy not as save as the Griffin Survivor or Supershell. The iGuy does not stand very stable. This cover is a favorite with customers who like to add some extra funkiness to the iPad.
Our verdict. Funky but only for small children.
The M-edge iPad Supershell
The M-edge Supershell is the lightest of all cases we tested. The Supershell does exactly what it is made for, it turns your iPad into a bouncy ball. Drop it from any height, roll it or throw it, we could NOT brake the iPad. The Case hardly ads any weight and gives a good grip. All ports and camera are accessable and for schools it is handy to know the iPad Supershell is stackable and fits into charging trolleys.
At RRP $49.95 we think the Supershell saves your day.
The Koosh Case and Stand are chunky and gives a good protection when it is dropped. Again as with the iGuy, the protection is not as good as the Supershell. The foam is thick but because the case is flat it is easier to drop it on the screen. The squishy foam gives an easy grip. A big pro is that this case comes with a stand.
Our verdict: a runner up to the Supershell, the stand is handy.
Otter box Defender
This rugged case covers your iPad with 3 layers protection and it includes a stand. Otterbox is a trusted brand that has been around for years. We found this case particularly good for older kids and professionals using a tablet in the field. A slim design, tough case, but with a hefty price tag. The port covers make this case perfect for those who work in a dusty environment.
Our verdict: one of the best cases, but with a hefty price tag. RRP: $105.95
The Griffin Survivor case is by far the most popular shockproof case on the market and is available in a wide range of colors from camouflage green to bright pink.
The Griffin Survivor all terrain gives military approved protection (US defence standards) and it shows. This is a tough cookie indeed. 4 layers of protection will do the job it is designed for. Drop it, trow it or splash some water (no submerging in the bath tub), it survives the toughest kids.
Our verdict: One of the best cases we have seen. No fuzz, just protection.
Probably the must have case for the bigger kids or those who work in a tough environment. This case is tough and comes with screen protection that makes it splash proof and dust proof (not waterproof).
The Trident kraken is the thinnest case we tested and we certainly advise this case for those who stretch the iPads use to tougher environments like builders, beachgoers and travelers.
Tested by our team of mums and bubs; Jaiden (4), Bella (5) and Mums Jo and Anna (still young as well)
