    My 3 yr old has taken over my lovely ipad pressie and I wonder how long it will last! It has no screen protecter and gets thrown around a bit as she fights off my 2 yr old son lol ...not even sure if she should be using it? Just jealous as she is more comfy on it then me. Sorry to babble but this is all very new to me. Should I just save up and get her her own ipad?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I myself would not allow a 3 year old to use my iPad unattended and then would want it stationary and not in a play situation. I would worry about the screen being broken and also about any bumps it would receive while being tossed around. It's up to you, but the iPad is a valuable device and should be treated so. There are very good cases you can purchase that will provide good protection and I would look at 1 of these just to be safe. We have many accessory threads here which would give you a better idea of what's available. Doing a simple search will find them. Enjoy!

    Thank you for the welcome and you are right I would have searched before posting . Thank you very much for the links as well...it's just nice to be listened to after so much frustration and bewilderment as I have barely used a computer! The fact that there is a Aussie forum is awesome
