We have had the ipad case for school kids now for ten months and it really has had a lot of use and I can honestly say I am thrilled with it and can thoroughly recommend it to anyone with small children or for those who need a sturdy case for the IPad. There are no parts to break or chip.. it is still perfect. At this stage it will most definitely outlast the iPad... or at least when I need to upgrade.My son has dropped it on the state floor numerous times and no damage was done whatsoever. I also caught him putting it on one of his chairs that was on top of his table... It did drop but once again no damage done to either case or IPad. He also uses it in the car and when we are out and I never even worry about it.In my opinion it is the best ipad case for school kids, or teens, or even adults (like me). I have even seen my mum having a go with it with a big smile on her face.
