A while ago, I reviewed three baby-friendly iPAD cases. For babies, the cases must have drop protection and water proof. For older kids, there will be less drools or spills (they still happen, but are more manageable if you set up good house rules, such as no drinks while using iPAD). Today I recommend three iPAD cases for older kids. All these three cases have good drop protections, but offer no water proof.
Gripcase ($40): the case is made of shock absorbent foam with the built-in “crumple zones” absorbing the energy created during an impact. In addition to the sides and corners, it also has protections on the back of the iPAD. It is a little bulky, but it is really good for drop protection. It is also easy for the small hands to grab and carry the iPAD around.
Big Grips Frame ($35): made of thick and soft foam. Although there is no “crumple zone”, it still has pretty good shock absorption. There is no protection on the back though. Overall drop protection is not as good as Gripcase, but should be enough for school age kids.
M-Edge Supershell Protective Case ($35): wraps around the iPAD – sides, corners and back. There are openings for rear facing camera and speaker and all ports and buttons.
All three cases don’t have screen cover. If you are concerned about spills or drools, you can consider a Screen Protector.
