Children and child-proof HD tablet cases

Let's face it - kids are growing up surrounded by a different kind of technology to what most of us were exposed to.

More and more parents have come to terms with the fact that their child WILL be using a tablet. If not at home, at school. Even preschoolers are introduced to using tablets, and they learn with ease (and swiftly go on to helping you out with yours!)

As a parent or guardian, it’s wise for you to invest in not only a good tablet or iPad, but also a durable case that is certain to provide extra protection from knocks, bumps, falls and other kinds of destruction that a child can conjure up within the blink of an eye.

An HD tablet case IS NEEDED for kids.

Why HD?

Because HD stands for HEAVY DUTY!

An easy guide for things to consider when selecting a child-friendly, shock-proof tablet case

  • First, consider where will it mostly be used.

- At school. At home. Outdoor.

  • Which colour tablet?

- Bright colours are nearly always a big hit when selecting a protective tablet cover for a very young child. Most tablet cases are available in vibrant colour options.

- Small children are attracted to eye-catching shapes as well as colours.

- Older children might desire a subtle colour that blends well with their room and attire.

  • Tablet cases for children should provide a good grip, be anti-dust and scratch-resistant.

  • Pay attention to the material it’s made from and the texture design:

- It should be shock-proof, robust, easy to clean with a damp cloth.

EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) rubber foam, neoprene and silicone are very protective.

  • Does it need to have a handle?

- If a child needs something like a grip, make sure that it is large enough to securely grasp.

  • Does it need to have a strap?

- Will it be used to carry over the shoulder? In the car, attached to the back of the car seat? If so, it will need an adjustable strap

- There are also tablet cases that have a multifunctional, rotating hand strap on the back.

  • Can the case stand up on its own to enable easy media viewing?

- Some have sturdy legs and others may have a stand.

  • Would you need a case that has a built-in pencil holder?

  • Does it come with a tempered glass screen protector?

- If it doesn't then you will need to purchase one separately.

  • Deep edges or bumpers around the screen (Raised screen bezel)

- If it falls face downward, the screen won’t be the first thing that encounters the table or floor.

  • And most important of all for very young children - Thick padding, thick corners!

- You know why


- Be sure to select the right-sized case! Bear in mind to check if you are buying a universal case or one that just fits your device brand - Samsung Galaxy, iPad or other.

Compatibility - Good To Know...

Most manufacturers make a variety of cases for iPad, Galaxy, and Universal ones.
