My Thoughts:

Does your child have their own iPad or use yours?  Savannah started using her Daddy's iPad at 6 months old, and now is better with it than her Nana and Papa.  And, Arabella is following suit, and loves playing with the musical apps and interactive storybooks loaded on the Daddy's iPad -- or, should we say Savannah's, after Daddy and I don't use it as often anymore.  :-)  But, even though the girls use caution when using the iPad and usually do so when sitting or laying on the couch, there are times that they walk around the house with it, and a few times have dropped it.  

I have tried and reviewed over iPad covers, but have continued to look for an iPad cover that could withstand daily wear and tear and being dropped on occasion.  Other iPad cases we have had a Velcro closure, which over time gave away, from us removing the iPad from the holder when my husband and I wanted to use it.

So, when I stumbled across the Dora the Explorer Universal Activity Tray by CTA Digital, I couldn't wait to try it out. I loved how you could use this activity tray for all versions of the iPad, so that if and when we upgrade, I don't have to go out and buy another iPad cover/holder.  Another feature of this activity tray was how you could easily slide the iPad in and out and secure by zipping the closure.  With the zipper closure, I wouldn't have to worry about a Velcro closure giving way like other iPad holders we have owned.  But, the best part of this activity tray is how it can be attached to a car seat, stroller, or high chair.  

I haven't had a chance to try attaching this activity tray to the girls' stroller, but have used with the car seat and high seat, and it was easy to attach and remove.  But, Savannah (and Arabella) love to use their Dora the Explorer Universal Activity Tray by holding it in their laps, when they lounge on the couch.  Here are a few photos of Savannah using the iPad the other morning after she got up from a nap and was waiting for lunch. 

Having Dora on the cover is just an added bonus for her, as she loves Dora.  Out of all the iPad covers/protectors we have owned, I have to say everyone, including the girls loves this one best. :-)

So, if you have a toddler or young child who has their own iPad or uses yours, why not consider picking up this universal tray, to protect your iPad -- all while entertaining your child while they sit in their high chair, stroller, car seat, or even on the couch?  It is definitely a small price to pay for peace of mind, knowing that it will protect your iPad from breaking if dropped or having juice or other liquids spilled on it.
