Last year, Jamie and I made the decision to give Olivia an iPad mini for Christmas. Filled with apps about tracing, counting, numbers and of course, her favorite Disney interactive apps, she was excited. And? We didn’t have our phones snagged out of our hands constantly.
Christmas afternoon, I handed her a stylus to use on the iPad for one of the letter tracing apps but it was one of the ten styluses that I bought for $2 or something ridiculous, and wasn’t the best of quality. I didn’t think twice about it until the hard-pushing-three-year-old hand destroyed the screen of the iPad with gouge marks from the metal part of the stylus.
Thankfully, we didn’t give a three year old an iPad without having a case that was three year old proof too. The gouging of the screen cover didn’t go near the screen and the screen remains in perfect condition, almost seven months later.
When You Give a Kid an iPad, You Give a KidProof Case with It
We were recently given the chance to try out a new case for the iPad Mini. The Lifeproof case, with fre technology is waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof. Most important, it’s kid proof.
Features of the LifeProof iPad Mini Frē
- Ultra flat and thin scratch protector
- Lightweight, barely there case
- Four proof protection
- Removable shoulder strap
Immediately, I put it on her iPad mini. It was really, really tough to get on the iPad mini. You know what though? That’s a good sign. It’s not going to be manuevered off by those three year old hands, it’s secure and safe, keeping the iPad mini that hasn`t seen the light of day without a high quality case in excellent condition.
What Olivia Loves about the Lifeproof iPad Mini Fre Case
Though she was a bit off-put that the case wasn’t pink. However, the clear back side of the lifeproof case can allow you to use skins that stick to the back of the iPad and create a custom look. Easy fix for kid preferences. She told me that she could see the screen better than the previous case and that Netflix looked “super good”. She was also partial to the shoulder strap, and has toted it around all day long shoulder strap attached.
What Mom Loves about the Lifeproof iPad Mini Fre Case
I was impressed by the screen protector. It was thinner and more sensitive, but just as strong as the previous case that we were using. The claims were right, it was just as sensitive as the naked touch screen. I found it simple to type using the iPad and for games and movies, it looks great too.
The best way that I would describe the Lifeproof fre Ipad Mini case is small but mighty. I like the fact that it’s not bulky, it’s easy to hang on to. Plus, it’s easy to have around. When I’m using the iPad Mini, I am following recipes while cooking in the kitchen. It’s good to know the case is going to be spill proof when I inevitably spill something in the kitchen.
The volume buttons on the Lifeproof fre Ipad Mini case are tricky to push, you have to apply a good amount of pressure to change the volume up or down. This way, I can control the volume and it’s not going to get jacked right up when she’s wearing headphones, something that she tends to do.
Though the Lifeproof cases are expensive, can you really afford giving a kid an Ipad without a high quality case? It’s cheaper than replacing it.
