Momma Told Me: That's coming out of your allowance!

Growing up we had many forms of modern electronics; they were much more bulky, and significantly slower, but just as expensive. One of the nice things about having really large expensive electronics was their lack of portability, which made them relatively kid-safe. The biggest thing I often had to worry about was spilling a beverage of food on or around a keyboard or stereo. Unlike modern times, there were few electronics intended for both kids and adults to be able to share and enjoy. I had my Game Boy, and Momma had her (function only) cell phone. The only real family shared devices were the Walkman, and later, CD player. I still remember how many portable CD players our family went through in the first year. Do you remember what it was like to have to stand still to listen to music without skipping?

Today it seems the modern child has increased access to tablets; Sabrina's middle school even issued them this year, and what I call mini tablets (or Phablets) the modern smartphone. Parents rely on these devices to help occupy children on long car drives, when the power is down, at Dr's office visits, and even for educational programming and apps. And, while the modern tablet is becoming more and more affordable, no parent wants to see their tech sprawled out with a cracked screen or peanut butter prints. Luckily, Speck makes an entire range of tablet cases for popular brands like Samsung and Apple.

Few are as adorably functional, however, as the iGuy case, which houses the iPad 2, 3, and 4 generations (no mini yet!) Available in Orange and Red (currently sold out in the ironic Android Green hue and Blue) the iGuy is a simple 'stretch on' style flexible foam casing. Not only does he go on easy, his thick layers of foam help absorb shocks from minor tumbles and everyday child use. You'll want to invest in a basic screen protector of your own, to help further child-proof your tablet, and Speck can help you there too.

iGuy's adorable arms and legs not only function as easy to grab appendages for children playing games, and moving about with the device, but also let the tablet stand in 'television' mode for cartoons and as decor. The squeezable EVA foam material is also easy to clean (we use a simple Windex solution to remove scuffs and stains,) and only has a faint odor when fresh from the package. Aside from being plain adorable, we especially loved this case for how lightweight it was while on the tablet, and how easy ti was to transition out of the iGuy back into 'adult' mode for my own use. This is definitely a must have for holiday shopping and any household with smaller hands!

What Daughter Says: Protect your iPad with a kid friendly alternative that will make tablet computing less stressful for you and your child.
