iPad cases for kids

iPads are powerful educational tools. And in moderation, and with careful supervision, an iPad - particularly an older model you don't use much any more - can be a great way to distract, entertain and stimulate the brain of a child, and there are some amazing iPad apps just 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.

Happily, an industry has grown up to cater for this market, and there are lots of protective iPad cases to choose from. We'll try to help you find one that will both appeal to, and survive, your child's sense of fun.

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.

Available on Amazon for £14.60/US$14.98.

 

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 orange, pink, purple and blue (pictured).

Available on Amazon for £16.99/US$15.95.

 

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 the iPad 2-4, iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7 and the iPad mini/mini 4. 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 £13.99/US$19.30.

 

Evecase Multifunction iPad Kids Cover

The iKiz Multifunction Child's Case fits the iPad mini 1 to 3 and the iPad 2 to 4. It's also made with a heavy-duty foam like the Ledniceker case, except you get two fold out stands at the back for additional stability.

It's made with hazard-free, impact resistant plastic and silicone, with reinforced corners on the inside like Boumo case. .

Available on Amazon for £7.99. 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)

 

iBallz Originals for iPad

Crazy name, crazy product. iBallz is four soft balls on an elasticated band that you stretch around the perimeter of your tablet; these protect the vulnerable corners and screen from drop damage, while the cord can be used to hang the iPad on the back of a car seat and similar vantage points.

The iBallz fits any tablets 10-12 inches in size, which include the iPad 1-6 and iPad Air. 

Available directly from iBallz and on Amazon 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 (£11.99), iPad 2-4 (£12.99) and iPad 9.7 (2017), Pro 9.7 and Air 2 (£11.99).

Though this case is not available from UCMDA in the States, US shoppers can find a nearly identical version for the iPad 2-4 ($16.99) and the iPad Air 1 & 2 and iPad 5/6 ($15.98) on Amazon. See it's full US collection here.

 

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 £15.77. US availability is limited, but you can find it for the new 9.7in iPad models from 2017 and 2018 ($19.97).

 

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.
