Best ipad case for toddlers Griffin Survivor – The #1 Best iPad Case for Kids

The Griffin Survivor was built to withstand military action, literally. It has been tested to survive wind, rain, 6-foot drops onto concrete, extreme vibration, and an hour in a sand storm will not harm the ports or damage the screen. It can survive life in the military and most parents report also life with a toddler or young child.

It comes with a front and back cover that easily snaps together. You then add a soft backing for extra absorption and covers for the ports–in case you find yourself stuck in a sand storm, or at least to protect against spilled milk and sticky fingers. The front panel does have a screen guard, which many iPad cases, even ones designed for kids, do not have. It also comes with a stand so you can prop the iPad up for movie watching. The one major drawback is that the stand is not part of the case, so you have to remember where you put it and pack it separately into a bag when you travel. You can get the Griffin Survivor in some bright kid friendly colors, or opt for the black so that you are embarrassed to bring your iPad to work with you.

Ipad protective case for kids iGuy for iPad

Reminiscent of Gumby, the iGuy for iPad is made with clumsy kid hands in mind and gets a best nod for just being cute. It’s large legs let you stand the iPad up for watching movies and arms provide easy to gripe handles for young children to grasp. The foam is thick and does a good job of absorbing tumbles. The biggest complaint with the iGuy is that it can be difficult to access the ports for charging. However, since this case is large and bulky, and a bit on the ridiculous side for an adult to carry to work, you probably will only want to use this at home for your child anyway. Then once your child’s time is up, you can switch the iPad back to your more professional iPad case or travel case if needed.
