If you are a parent, own an iPad, and just so happen to have lost your mind, you might decide to let your child/children handle your iPad one day. Stop! Before you go completely crazy you absolutely must grab these 5 iPad accessories to “child-proof” your iPad.
ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD iPad Protective Screen – $29.99
The iPad is a touchscreen device and therefore is the natural enemy of “kid fingers”. No matter how innocent your “little sweetie” is, their fingers aren’t as sweet and the dirt, candy, slime, and other undesirables that they carry on their hands will not make a good home on your iPad’s touchscreen. To child proof your iPad from the infamous fingers of children, I strongly recommend the ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD iPad protective screen. The ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD is the best iPad screen protector out there and is the only thing that can go toe to toe [hand] with the dirty hands of children.
OtterBox iPad Defender Case – $89.95
“Kid fingers” isn’t the only scare to consider when allowing your children to touch your iPad and when your kids pair up with the iPad’s other natural enemy – gravity – they’ll have your iPad outnumbered two to one. If you fear that your iPad will fall to its death while in your child’s possession, you’d want to strongly consider purchasing an OtterBox iPad Defender Case. OtterBox is famous for protecting cell phones and other mobile devices and is the industry leader in iPad gravity protection.
Pogo Sketch iPad Stylus – $14.95
Remember those “kid fingers”? Well, there is a way to protect your iPad from “kid fingers” altogether; and that solution is called the Pogo Sketch iPad stylus. Having an iPad stylus will element your child’s fingers from the equation completely, and you’ll be able to rest assured that you won’t have to take your iPad to the cleaner’s every time your child is finished using it.
The Padlette – $19.99
Unless you have your iPad mounted into a station or display [which wouldn’t be too bad of an idea], letting your kids use your iPad will require them to… well, your child will have to hold your iPad – which will skyrocket the probability of your iPad dropping and meeting it’s death. Wouldn’t it be great to have an iPad accessory that’d strap to your child’s hand so that it would be nearly impossible for them to drop it? Luckily the Padlette is just the device and for only $19.99 it’d cost way less to buy a Padlette than a new iPad.
Nothing Beats Having a Warranty – Varies
Honestly, all of the above iPad accessories are great for child proofing your iPad, but if you are strongly considering letting your children handle your iPad, you should absolutely not do so without having a warranty on your iPad. Don’t get me wrong, when I say warranty, I’m not talking about the stuff that comes free for the iPad for a year – I’m talking about an iPad protection plan that covers accidental damage and cracked screens. Depending on where you buy your iPad, the retailer might offer this kind of protection [if the retailer isn’t an Apple store] and if not, there are lots of plans like these that can be purchased online.
