AWESOME BEST iPAD ACCESSORIES FOR KIDS 2013 | Cool iPad Games & Toys

Make the most of your new apple iPad with the Top Best iPad Accessories for Kids (and kids at heart) right here. Yearning for your childhood games and toys.. many favorites have been made into iPad accessories.. super fun.. I have searched for the most awesome and fun new iPad Games and toys for kids both young kids, tweens, teens and older kids.. Most are great value and lots of fun. I update regularly with the latest iPad games. There are some good iPad gift ideas for not just kids but mom and dad also for iPad 1 and 2, 3 & 4 and the IPAD MINI CASE.
Have you or the kids got their Christmas lists sorted yet? Nearly 100 days to go..
The Crayola Pack is great to let your kids explore their creative side.. each one has different effects. They can even upload the image to Facebook and send Grandma a copy. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Inflatable car (pictured left) for the iPad is also great fun. It comes with its’ own pump.. It does have a weight limit.. so sorry Dad. It also comes in a Dora and SpongeBob SquarePants design. Works for all motion activated games for the IPAD MINI CASE.
I have also found a great Solar Powered Keyboard for your i Pad.. no more spending a fortune on batteries that keep draining. This Keyboard once charged can go for 3 months without another charge.. Pretty cool. Being solar it will also charge itself in sunlight and even pretty low light.
Not only can you find fun iPad accessories for kids but you can also find top educational and learning accessories as well. I love that I don’t have to buy “kids “must have” computers” for learning anymore that never lived up to their price tags. No more flash cards all over the floor..
You can have your say in which ones you also love. I would love to hear from you if you have found any other cool IPAD 4 FOR KIDS CASE I haven’t listed.
I also tell you about my favorite… the Ion iCade Arcade Game… a favorite for those who remember the old fashioned arcade games.

BEST IPAD CASES FOR KIDS REVIEW | Best Kid Friendly IPad Case & Cover

Read my REVIEW on the Best iPad Cases for Kids BEFORE you choose one. An New Apple iPad 1, 2, 3 or 4 is expensive and delicate, and if your case is flimsy, the iPad may not survive what your kids dish out to it. I had to find a kid friendly case because kids, (well my son), tends to drop things (or throw them). The one I highly recommend is the GRIPCASE, (photographed with my son, left). Photograph is Ã?â Ã?© by me.
I actually decided to write about it after I had purchased it, because we were so happy with it. I wanted an i Pad case that didn’t look like it was my son’s if I use it in public. I wanted a lightweight and easy to carry case. I found a fabulous rubber Case (EVA Foam) perfect for kids of all ages. It is pretty indestructible and has been dropped on my floor (a Slate floor) many times without damage. I can even carry it with one finger.. perfect for moms on the run. I have had quite a lot of people come up to me and ask where I got the case from (just this week in fact someone asked me when we were out when they saw my son with it). See the case
(HERE) …It comes in 5 amazing colors (also available in the iPad Mini size).. or scroll down further.. for a full listing of the best iPad Cases for kids available..
Gripcase have also just released a stand for their Case.. see it below.. it’s a beauty.. My son can use it for some games and l can sit at the kitchen bench and check my emails. Best of all because it is not just a flimsy stand at the back of a case, it won’t snap off. It is also great to use for facetime.
I have also listed some of the other cases I consider the Best Covers for kids.. Scroll down .. including funky iPad Mini cases and some cute ipad 4 case for kids for kids.
I also recommend a great kids stylus to help with your kids writing and drawing on the i Pad / tablet.. Unlike most, this one actually is shaped like a pencil with flat notches on the sides so provides a better grip to hold. Great idea. After trying my son on a normal stylus I found it was too thin and was slipping from his fingers too easily. This one gives more control, especially important when they are learning to write. I would not recommend using the stylus though until they can hold a pencil properly as you don’t want to scratch the screen. A screen protector is good protection in any event.
The Gripcase was the original iPad case with “Grips” or handles… It was designed by a father for his 2 year old (in the US) but it is great for kids of all ages. It is also being extensively used in schools and schoolrooms, even at the elementary level, and by the autism community for autistic kids. Many parents are saying the Gripcase is a great ipad case for children with autism (and also kids with special needs and disabilities). There are now other cases that have handles but this is the only rubber one one that the handles go the whole way around the case. The case has a Patent Pending for it. It is also manufactured in the United States (US), rare these days when everything is manufactured in Asia.
The Fischer Price Apptivity case for toddlers has handles but it is a hard handle, not rubber and is really only suitable for babies and toddlers.. not really suitable for older children. I can’t imagine a ten year old wanting to be seen using it in public
The Gripcase would be good anyone in business (like couriers or surveyors) or even for seniors who need to grip the iPad as they are using it or for teachers walking around the room carrying it. The handle is also great to sit up in bed and read ..perfect.
I also like it because I can carry it in one hand with my bags, while trying to grab my son, and also my car keys at the same time.
No worry of dropping it.
Scroll down for my other Top Picks of other sturdy (and durable) Kid Safe iPad Cases for IPad 1,2, and 3 third generation cases and 4. (models 3 and 4 both have the Retina Screen. I am always looking for awesome new models of cases on release and also Accessories and update the page regularly. I also note if the case is available in the iPad Mini 7″ size
Some other excellent cases offer top protection (including some that have built in screens (some replaceable) for added protection). I am confident any of the ones I have listed would be fantastic for kids. There are also some pretty pink cases for girls as well as purple and blue cases.
If you live in a dry dusty area (or want to take the iPad to the beach) there are some fabulous cases that have port cover protection against dust which I think is necessary in a dusty environment (farms, warehouses etc.).
I have also added some super cute cases for older kids, tweens & teenagers.. Teens invariably are harder to please (and don’t necessarily need the extra toughness that younger kids need) and I have found some really cute cases. I have also added some carrying cases protect the tablet when it goes to school.
The iPad is fabulous but it is also expensive so it’s important to get a case that will provide good protection especially if kids have access to it.
Also I recommend you read my latest article .. why teaching kids to read by sight words is so dangerous for their future literacy ability. SCROLL DOWN to see the link to my article. If you are like me and was buying sight word flash cards and you need to read my article. I even bought phonics apps only to realize they were sight words hidden as phonics.

Child Proof iPad Mini Cases

The Apple mini iPad is a wonderful educational gadget for children of all ages. There are apps for toddlers and pre schoolers to learn phonics and school age children can improve their math and reading skills. The smaller 7.9 inch size makes it a very kid friendly tablet when it comes to playing games. Children are better able to hold it and want to take it with them wherever they go. If you are looking for a gift for a little techie who loves to take his iPad mini with him everywhere he goes, get him a cool case for tablet.
Browse below for child proof iPad mini cases. I have featured these based on favorable reviews by parents. Kid sized headphones, stylus and speakers are other accessory choices to consider.

Fintie Casebot Kiddie Series Light Weight Shock Proof Handle Case for Kids for iPad Mini
Fintie Casebot Kiddie Series Light Weight Shock Proof Handle Case for Kids for iPad Mini
The Fintie Casebot Kiddie Series case is made of EVA foam which is lightweight and soft. It has a nice grip so will not slip out of a child’s hand easily. The sides are raised to keep the display screen safe if the device is laid face down. Kids can use the handle to carry their tablets or convert it to a stand for face time and hand free video watching.
i-Blason has a similar case but I like this one better because there are awesome colors to choose from. Besides the usual pink, blue, green, and orange, you have a choice of purple, yellow, red and magenta.
iPad Mini Cover for Baby and Toddler
Speck Products iGuy Protective Case for iPad mini – MangoSpeck Products iGuy Protective Case for iPad mini – Mango
Babies and toddlers can carry their tablet around the house by holding the iGuy’s soft squishy hands. The Speck iGuy case is a fun free standing case which means small children can prop the tablet on a flat surface and watch their movies from a distance. This is great especially when there are multiple children using the iPad and everyone wants to hold it. Please note it stands up in landscape mode only.
Its well padded and made of dense EVA foam to protected the iPad mini if dropped. Young kids cannot get to the charging port easily which I think is a good idea. As other parents have mentioned, it has a strong odor when you first get. So I suggest you order it ahead of time and let it sit in open space for a few days to dissipate the smell. You can then wrap it up as a gift so its ready for use when the child opens it. This case comes in these bright kid loved colors : mango, grape purple, chili pepper red, and lime green.
Mini iPad Cover by BobJ
These are one of the best cases for children and adults as well. They are used in schools and are made of thick food grade silicone that absorb shock during fall. I would recommend this if you are getting a cover for a very young child who has a tendency of putting things in his mouth. It can be washed with a mild soap and water so it will last longer too. You may also like that the sides extend about 1/4″ to protect the screen during a drop. There are many cool kid friendly colors to choose from : Playful Purple, Batfish Blue, Outrageous Orange, Gotcha Green, Rockin’ Raspberry, and Bold Black.

iPAD MINI FOR KIDS | 7″ Inch Apple iPad Great Kids Learning Tool

The 7″ iPad, the Apple 7.9″ Mini tablet is available. The iPad Mini for Kids is just perfect. Smaller than the full size tablet, a baby i Pad or small i Pad if you like is perfect for kids. The screen size is just 7.85 inches. Apple have indeed taken note that it is a very popular device for children.. The smaller version of the original tablet is a great size for kids.. not too big to be cumbersome for handling and it is 53% lighter than the full size IPAD MINI CASE.. As gifts go it is a wonderful gift idea for kids and was at the top of most kids Christmas Lists last year and I sure it will be as well this year.. A plus for the i Pad Mini is that because it is more affordable than the full size original it will be cheaper to update it when the newer model comes out.. also good if you have to buy more than one if you have a couple of kids.. I have limited the Apps on my son’s tablet to educational apps.
See the iPad Mini
(HERE)
or Scroll down for some fabulous Kid Proof iPad Mini Cases and accessories..
From an educational prospective, the iPad is an awesome educational tool for kids … there are over 275,000 apps available (and new ones released all the time), many aimed at all educational levels from toddlers to preschoolers to elementary school students to kids in college. It will help and advance your child in their learning like nothing else. Whatever your kids educational level is there is an App that will help with their learning. If your child is young I recommend the “Montessori Crosswords” App for phonics.. it is excellent. It quickly teaches kids sounds of letters which helps their phonics and reading. I am an avid believer in phonics and don’t believe in teaching “sight words” as I have seen reading levels go down if children are not taught phonics. My son is also using an excellent App to practice writing letters and numbers and another App which says words and then he can record his voice speaking (great because he needs help with speech). If you are homeschooling or thinking of a homeschool option, using the iPad will be an invaluable teaching tool. Other tablets do not have the sheer number of Apps available that are available for the iPad.
The IPAD CASE FOR KIDS has done wonders in schools as an education aid and is especially popular in the Autism community. Well that may have prompted them to think about releasing a smaller more kid friendly version of the iPad. I know I would be more than happy with my child carrying a smaller iPad in his bag to school.. less bulky and cheaper that the full size iPad. Even for women the iPad Mini is very exciting. Small enough to fit into a handbag without having to go out and buy a huge carry bag.
Update: There are rumblings and rumors that a new Mini tablet that will feature a retina display.
I will also be adding more great 7.85″ cases and accessories for kids as they become available..
Scroll down for a great video by Apple on showcasing the Mini. Very impressive.
