Does anyone know of any iPad cases that are so indestructible, that you would entrust a 3-year-old with an iPad?

    Note that almost all of these cases only provide protection against cracking the shell of the device: rapid deceleration (i.e., dropping it or smashing it against the floor or a coffee table) will damage internal components. There's virtually nothing you can do to protect against that without a thick impact-absorbing material like an inch of neoprene—and who wants (or even offers) that…

Check out OtterBox's Defender product line. I don't own any of their products, but I've heard from others that they're close to indestructible.

More details & reviews:


I don't think there is one. The glass-front of the iPad is way to big for any case to make handling it completely secure.

If I had kids, I would just stay with them and observe them while they play with my gadgets.

    Oh, it will be her gadget, not mine. Over-generous grandparents.

    This would be a good reason to buy the accidental damage insurance for the retailer. I bought it and I have a teenager...

    IMHO: Finding a suitable case is a symptom of another much more worrying problem which is the "over-generous grandparents" - but that's off-topic for this site. Dec 9, 2010 at 9:50
