Rated 5 out of 5 by SingToKids Superb case for little ones
I bought this case nearly 2 years ago for my little one. We were going on some long road trips and I wanted him to have a way to use the iPad during the long drive. My son doesn't get a lot of screen time, but when he does, this has made it possible. I like the chunky protective frame to protect the iPad as well as the clear sheet to keep sticky fingers from leaving marks on the screen. I also like that I can position the iPad so that he doesn't have access to the home button if I so choose. We've lovingly used it almost 2 years and have never had an issue with it. It's made learning apps accessible for my little one and kept my iPad protected. We just upgraded to an iPad Air and will look to replace it with a new Fisher Price case!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crusaderx Great value and set to purpose
This product is pretty good at meeting its stated goal of letting a toddler use an iPad without breaking it. Our child just turned two and has been using it for about 8 months without any serious incident. We have tile floors in half our house and it has held up well without our iPad breaking. I'm not sure if it will hold up from a tall drop, but certainly our 2 year old has been able to drop it hundreds of times without a problem.
I love the fact it covers up all the buttons which prevents my child from adjusting volume (a life saver to a parent). That is, I set the volume before i put it in the case and its good to go until the battery dies.
The ad suggests placing it with home button under the hard plastic portion of screen protector to prevent activation... however we put it in backwards purposely to allow our son to change apps. This helps him switch between trains app and alphabet apps, etc. We disabled app deletion and installation int he device settings, and don't have any inappropriate apps on there.
Only inconvenience is recharging as it needs to come out of the case to do that, but this just requires planning.
The kiddie case does;t hamper good function of the iPad so we can share it with other people in house who are more the mine craft age of kids.
All in all and excellent buy for childproofing the iPad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ladybird73 Flawed but on the right track...
This is a good IDEA but needs refining to be truly useful. It is much too hard to open and close; finding a coin to try and unscrew the silly thing with a screaming toddler wrapped around your legs because he's pressed something and the app has vanished is a fresh new nightmare to try for any parent.
It also needs holes (you could put a rubber stopper thing in it to maintain waterproofing) for charging and headphones - see the samsung 'tradies' mobile phone for an example.
These flaws greatly decrease the usefulness of the product but don't by any means negate it - it was still a worthwhile purchase in my opinion as it does serve the purpose for which it is meant - just in such a way that I say bad words at it several times a day.
