Kid-Friendly iPad Cases

How many times has your child been fussy at a restaurant and they asked if they could play with your iPad? Kids these days are using the iPad as a learning device to understand colors, ABC’s, and their 123’s. As much as I love how technology is integrated as a fundamental part of childhood and the learning process, the idea of a child running around with an $800 device where they think is a “toy,” makes me nervous.

Pluto has definitely evolved through time. The world in which kids grow up in today is very different from even 10 years ago where. Back then, kids learned on basic personal computers playing games such as Oregon Trail and Math Blasters. Not to take anything away from these great educational games, but they were not as portable and easily accessible as today’s iPad and other tablets.

With that, the iPad has become widely popular in today’s age. The benefits of the iPad are endless, but unfortunately they were not built with the little ones in mind. Children are not as careful, have smaller hands, and weaker finger strength than adults. Whenever my nephew or niece is using the iPad, I am on the alert.

To help deal with this issue, there are many great cute child-friendly iPad cases that are made specifically to help your child hold the iPad better and protect it from accidental mishaps. Lucky for you, I compiled a list of my favorites!kid friendly ipad case
