    What is a good IPAD case.....I have kids so I need something that will protect the Ipad. They are 4 and 5 and play on it all the time. And I know they are bound to drop it so I need to know what offers the best protection, or should i just DUCT TAPE a bunch of BUBBLE WRAP around it?

    If they are as busy as mine were I'd suggest a case you could screw to the ceiling...

    Seriously, have a look at Otterbox Defender. It also doubles as a stand.
    I don't have one but that's the one I'd get.

    Frankly, I would say insurance is more important (accidental damage coverage). No matter how good the case there is still chance of damage. I am nanny for an 3 year old and 19 month old. They use my ipad all the time. It is a bit worse for wear, but I am not that concerned.

    I doubt if there exists a case invented which is completely impervious to what toddlers and small children are capable of: get the sturdiest case you can find, but keep with the close supervision and stern looks. My three-year-old knows to be careful around mommy and daddy's devices.

    Well have a two year old here and the basic apple case works fine. Certainly the material makes it non slip and the extra ribbing around the edge acts as a sort of impact absorber.

    Trouble is he reckons it's the best toy ever invented........

    As often quoted the only difference between the man and the boy is the cost of his toys.....

    Why would you let your small kids even touch your iPad?

    The iPad is a great education tool and teaching kids how to respect and care for an important object is also good for them.

    Right on! Respect is lacking in to many adults as well as children. Keep up the good work/training.

    Because you have to start somewhere teaching them about how to use and look after things, especially electronic items, and demonstrating trust by letting them handle items is a positive way of doing it. (Do you have small kids yourself?)

    My four-year-old loves the apps I've downloaded for her, and she knows she has to earn enough "goody points" to play games, usually for not more than 10-12 mins at a time. As she gets older, there'll be other interesting non-gaming apps like the electronic astrolabe and music synthesizers which will be educational.

    You can try otter box. That seems to provide the most protection.
