iPhone and iPad Accessories

There is no denying that children all over the world are taking to the iphone and ipad like fish to water. With the increasing number of children-friendly apps being developed daily, the ability to educate, entertain and stimulate children in a whole new way is here. Whether you believe a child should be using such devices, regularly or even on an ad-hoc basis is a purely personal decision. They are, however, dominating wish lists around the world and it is not surprising then that some incredible accessories have been developed to protect these very expensive toys. Whether it is your iphone or ipad that your child is 'borrowing' or their own (if they are super lucky), the need to guard them from the inevitable dirty sticky fingers or drop to the floor is critical.

This selection of products are not only fun, but provide the child-proof element that can protect our expensive toys from the child in all of us!

Whilst most are designed for the little kids in the children category, there are a couple of outstanding products just for the big kids! And if it is interactive games and accessories you are after, don't miss the report on the best of the best!

iPad Accessories

Before your child grabs your iPad to play the next level of their favourite spelling game, grab a Big Grips Frame.

Key Features:

  • Pink, Blue, Green or Grey
  • Non-toxic
  • Lead and Latex Free

The non-toxic easy to grab frame is made a foam that is so soft and squishy yet strong enough to save your iPad from hitting the floor. The frame allows for greater grip which is all too important when little fingers are at the controls.

This toy allows you to lock your iPhone into place, and with dual triggers, simulate a virtual gaming experience. I bet once the big kid in your family plays this they won't want to put it down.

Know a LEGO Enthusiast?

If you have an iPhone, an iPod Touch or iPad in your home and live with a LEGO enthusiast, time to introduce them to the Life Of George! Don't miss this one!

Next time you are out shopping for a plain old case for your iPhone or iPad, consider buying something just that little bit different; particularly if the kids in the family are going to grab hold of it. You can always get the typical cartoon themed cases, glitzy cases and 'I look like a cassette tape from the 1980's' case, but not everyone has an iGuy or a Woogie!

      Hi again Dayna,I spent some time yesterday at the Apple store Genius Bar to see how to make the iPad work beettr for V. They were awesome! My daughter has good dexterity, but drags her fingers and was frustrated because she'd lose the page before she could find the area she wanted to hit plus a few other things. The Genius changed some settings resolving those issues, I can't wait to see if this makes it more usable for her. I decided that it would be a good idea to go in regularly and address frustrations V has, the iPad has so much functionality built in and it's so quick for the experts to find solutions to specific problems. This is a free service. Maybe there are some setting changes that can be made to help your son use the iPad easier?
