In the market for a childproof and kid-friendly iPad case? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve done all of the hard work for you—the research, the comparisons—and put together a list of what we believe are the best iPad cases for kids. The roundup consists of cases that are easy to handle, yet hard enough to take a fall, and won’t break the bank.
Our selection of the best iPad cases for kids
I-Blason ArmorBox Kido Case
A favorite among the fathers here at iDB, the ArmorBox Kido Case is built to withstand bumps and falls, and has an extra large carrying handle that converts into a stand. Made out of TPU (soft plastic) for the 2017/2018 9.7-inch iPad.
HDE Shock Proof Case for Kids
This case from HDE is nearly identical to the I-Blason, with a large carrying handle that doubles as a stand—except it’s made out of foam instead of plastic. It has a 4.5-star Amazon rating, and is compatible with the 2017/2018 9.7-inch iPad.
Speck iGuy Freestanding Case
It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out why this case is a hit with parents (and kids). Speck’s iGuy is made out of protective foam and has built-in legs that work as a viewing stand, and arms for carrying/handling. Works with all iPad minis.
HDE Steering Wheel Stand Case
Here’s another HDE case that seems to be extremely popular with Amazon customers. It’s shaped like a steering wheel, with 3 sturdy handles, and it has a built-in kickstand. It’s made of foam, and works with iPad minis 1,2 and 3.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro Case
If you just want a rugged case, without all of the cutesy colors and designs, check out this one from Supcase. Don’t let the silly name fool you, it has a hard plastic shell, built-in screen protector and a kickstand. Works with 2017/2018 9.7-inch iPad.
That should just about do it! Obviously we will update this list as we are made aware of and test new cases. And as always, if you have any good suggestions that we may have missed, let us know what you think are the best iPad cases for kids down in the comments below.
