Big Grip cases look like you've covered the ipad's delicate frame in play-dough and that kind of is what they do. Designed for kids, they make the gadget more grippable and bouncy - in the evitable case that it gets dropped. Designer Paul Mills says: "It's definitely a unique design, especially with Big Grips Stand, there's nothing quite like it. We've heard people describe it as 'groovy' and 'retro,' even 'goofy.' We had a feeling kids would like Big Grips, but what caught us by surprise is how much parents like it - we're thrilled with the response." Big Grips are $34.95 from Big Grips
Kids love iPad – they seem to get it immediately. The intuitive interface, responsiveness and good sound and good looks make it a great digital babysitter – but also a useful teacher. Apple are very proud of the tablet’s performance in schools and for kids with learning difficulties. It’s also good way to get your kid tuned into computer technology – tablets will probably be everywhere when it’s grown-up.
So don’t just get the iPad 2 for yourself – get it for the kids too. However you might want to invest in a case or two to keep that expensive piece of plastic and silicon safe from the little accidents that befall things in the hands of children..
