Sorry, I missed that bit. Thanks for the safety reminder.Originally Posted by Kaykaykay
I didn't even know one could buy a iPad 1 still, used I assume? At any rate you will certainly get $100 use out of it. I tried a few cases on my iPod 4, which is well known for it's easiest of all breakable screen. The otter box was a bit too bulky for me, but maybe I should have kept it for grand kids defense.
I just looked at their website. It looks like it provides excellent protection against corner impacts.Originally Posted by bnell
I have an Otterbox Defender for my iPad 1 and I love it. It comes with a stand that you can snap on to the screen when you´re done and a film to protect the screen. I just use a small shoulder strap bag to carry it around. Doesn´t really add much bulk or weight to it and it definitely will protect it from impact or scratches. You can get an Otterbox cheaper through eBay or maybe Amazon.
Same here iPad 1 with Black Otterbox Defender. Great protection against bumps, drops, scratches and anything a toddler might throw at it. Two layers of protection plus a removable cover/stand. But this kind of protection does come with added weight, but then again your baby won't be carrying it around. I bought mine in amazon a few months ago for $20, but right now it's listed for $70. You might want to wait after X-mas to buy it cheaper.
I just got and iPad 1. Was looking at otter boxes but they r pretty high. I can get a discount on one but Is there a case that can protect as well as an otter box that is cheaper?
UPDATE: To all who may be just viewing this post. My DG loves her ipad 1. Ultimately, I ended up buying the iballz harness which has worked out great. It's lightweight and provides drop protection for the back case and front screen. Plus my DG uses the elastic bands to carry it around and hold it in place. It's the only reason her ipad 1 still survives to this day . Thanks for all the input.
