iPad cases for kids

An iPad is likely to be the first fully-fledged piece of tech children use, thanks to its large screen, portability and ease of use. Provided you carefully monitor and control young ones' usage and don't rely on it to entertain them, it can be of huge value, with some excellent apps designed specifically for kids

That doesn't mean that you want your iPad to be covered in jam or used as a cricket bat, neither of which can be ruled out when kids are involved.

With more recent models of the iPad becoming even more lightweight and fragile, they can easily be damaged without due care and attention.  

Child are not exactly synonymous with being extra careful, so it's good news is that a whole industry of kid-friendly cases has emerged. There are a wealth of options out there, so you're bound to find something suitable. 

Just keep in mind the model and size of your iPad so that you choose a case that fits.

Bmouo iPad Kids Case

The Bmouo kids case fits the iPad Air 2 and iPad 9.7 models from 2017 and 2018. The exterior is made of impact resistant plastic while the interior uses silicone to absorb shock and has additional reinforced corners.

The handle of the case also turns into a multi-angle viewing stand so you can prop the iPad upright or bank it on a flat surface.

It's avaialble on Amazon US for $14.98. In the UK you can find a similar case from Surom for £13.99.

 

Ledniceker Kids Case for iPad mini 1-5

This kids case from Ledniceker fits all iPad mini models including the latest iPad mini 5 (see cases specific to the mini 5 here), so it's a great option if you already have a mini but may choose to upgrade to the mini 5 later on.

It uses a thick foam material to cover all sides of the tablet, including the screen, and provides access to all buttons, ports and cameras. It should be able to stand upright on its own, but keep in mind it doesn't have a separate kick stand. It's available in a broad range of colours too, including pink, purple, blue (pictured), and turquoise (in the US and Australia).

Available on Amazon for £14.03/$13.98/AUD$23.75.

 

TopEsct iPad (2018) Kids Case

ToEscts's iPad is a silicone case that ticks off every check box you could look for in a kids case. It's made of a non-slip, anti-shock scratch-resistant material, it has top and side handles, it comes with a kick stand on the back and it comes with a lanyard which you can use to strap the tablet onto car seats and other places.

It's also compatible with most iPad models: iPad 2-4, 9.7in iPad and Air, 10.2in and 10.5in iPad and iPad Mini sizes. You can choose from four colours: blue, pink, green and purple. In the US, the case comes with a tempered glass screen protector.

Available on Amazon for £14.99/$17.99.

 

Evecase Luka Multifunction iPad Kids Cover

The kids are sure grow fond of this cat-shaped stand! The EveCase Luka Multifunction Child's Case fits the iPad mini 1 to 3 and the iPad 2 to 4.

It's made with hazard-free, impact resistant plastic plastic and a silicone inner lining, which also provides water protection. On the back you get two fold out stands at the back for additional stability.

Available on Amazon for £9.99. While this case isn't available in the US, US shoppers can find a nearly identical one for $11.99 that also fits the latest generation of the iPad mini 5 (ships to the UK)

 

UCMDA Shockproof Children Butterfly Cover

This charming butterfly case is made from an environmentally-friendly EVA material, which is also lightweight and durable – perfect for children. 

What we like best is that the wings transform into an adjustable stand for both portrait and landscape viewing – while the case itself allows easy access to all ports.

It fits the iPad mini 1-4 (£14.99), iPad 2-4 (£15.99) and iPad 9.7 (2017), Pro 9.7 and Air 2 (£15.99).

Though this case is not available from UCMDA in the States, US shoppers can find a nearly identical version for the iPad 2-4 ($15.98) and the iPad Air 1 & 2 and iPad 5/6 ($15.99) on Amazon.

 

Meiya Waterproof Kids iPad Case

Here's a case that's rugged enough to protect your iPad from the wrath of your child's use, but also stylish enough to use yourself.

This case keeps your iPad safe from snow, sand and water. It fits the iPad 2-4 and is available in a large range of vibrant colours.

Available on Amazon for £16.99. US availability is limited, but you can find it for the 9.7in iPad models from 2017 and 2018 ($24.99).

 

Rugged cases

The cases we've looked at thus far have all been specifically designed for the tastes of children, but it may be that you're looking for something more generic: it doesn't need to be bright pink or shaped like a train, it just needs to protect your iPad from strenuous, careless use.

If you're willing to compromise on the looks side of things, you may be able to get a case that's a bit cheaper, or considerably tougher, or something you'd be happy to carry around yourself. If that sounds appealing, step on over to our Best tough, rugged and waterproof iPad cases article.
