iPad mini cases for kids: iGuy vs. ArmorBox

With the iPad mini being one of this years hottest and most sought after Christmas presents and the ideal tablet for kids, you may well be wondering what robust cases are available in the marketplace to offer ultimate protection. We have taken a look at the Speck iGuy and the i-Blason ArmorBox Kido iPad mini cases with details of the main features.

The iGuy is a fun looking case and has an eye catching design featuring arms and legs and is constructed from heavy duty foam, which is both lightweight and flexible. The unique feet design allows the iGuy to stand upright on its own, perfect for when the iPad is being used for movie viewing. The foam casing is soft, spongy, and is easy for small hands to grip using the casings “arms” on either side. These allow for easy one handed carrying at the child’s side. The squishy foam case is also shock resistant, helping to protect the iPad mini from those inevitable knocks and drops.

You can purchase the iGuy in 4 vibrant colors — Grape, Lime, Mango and Chilli Pepper and are available with a one-year warranty at just under $30. The Speck iGuy for iPad mini can be seen and bought from here. Below this article you can see a fun video of the iGuy iPad mini case in use by a child.

Apple iPad mini users can also take advantage of i-Blason’s ArmorBox Kido cases, which are a robust case made from polycarbonate with a shock absorbing silicone inner sleeve, double-thick silicone enforced corners and are extremely lightweight. The big feature that has caught our eye is a convenient carrying handle that doubles as a convertible stand allowing the iPad mini to be viewed in an upright position, or at an angle that allows for easy screen use at a desk or table. This iPad mini case is very portable, durable, shock absorbent and is available in a choice of 3 colors — Pink, Blue and Black. The ArmorBox Kido case is available for under $25 with a one-year warranty and can be seen in more detail on the official website.

The iGuy is one of the most child-friendly designs out there – in terms of catchy design and safe material. The only glaring drawback is that he does tend to tip over when touching the screen. As for the ArmorBox – it looks more like a rugged and tough case for adults to safely play with their iPad Mini outdoors.
