Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case for iPad Review (Fisher-Price)

What It Is

Following up on a similar case for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case for the iPad lets parents protect their valuable iPads so kids as young as 6 months can play with apps designed specifically for them. Download the free Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn apps from the iTunes store. Choose the app you want to use, then use a coin (We found a quarter works really well.) to open up the back of the iPad case and place the iPad into the case with the home button of the iPad under the hard plastic strip of the case. Close the case back up, using the coin to securely tighten the back cover to the front, and you're ready to play. The case holds the iPad behind a clear film to protect its screen, while still allowing kids to use the touchscreen to play with the apps. There are also two fold-down flippers on the back that allow the case to rock back and forth as the baby plays with it. In many cases, the movement also causes a reaction on the screen that babies will find engaging and amusing. You can also fold down only one flipper to prop the case up like an easel. The durable rubber case is brightly colored and has a carry handle with beads that small fingers can play with.

Is It Fun?

The content of the Laugh & Learn apps is really appropriate for infants, with big bright and colorful pictures and lots of interaction that keeps babies engaged as they play. The Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case for iPad is great for parents with an iPad and a little one who wants to play with it.

Who It’s For

The Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case for the iPad is for ages 6 months and up.

What To Be Aware Of

An iPad is not included with the Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case.

The case protects the iPad's home button so babies can't get into other apps or things you don't want them to. However, that means to change the app you have to open the case and reset it. This isn't a problem; it's just something to be aware of.

Before placing the iPad into the case, remove any other cover. The Laugh & Learn case will protect the iPad from accidental drops and scratches.

While the case is water-resistant, it is not waterproof, so you'll want to keep liquids away from it.

Older kids will find the case very babyish, so you'll want to make sure that when they grow out of it you have standard protection for your iPad when kids play with it.
