Hard Candy iPad Case Review & Giveaway

We got our iPad for my 3 1/2 year old so she could get a boost on her speech by using some speech therapy apps.  It was kind of a big deal when we got it for her because we are pretty frugal... heck, I'm a stay at home mom, of course we are frugal! I quickly realized, though, that we needed something to protect this iPad ASAP so we could make it last as long as possible so she could get the most out of it. 

It's a pretty hot topic on the Apraxia forums for people to ask which kind of case they should get for their children's speech therapy iPads.  I thought I'd share this information with you, in hopes that it will help someone! 

I ended up getting a ShockDrop case from Hard Candy to try out. 


This case feels very durable & yet not overly bulky.  (Yes, it's bulky compared to Apple's smart cases, but those ones aren't considered 'protective cases'.)  The Hard Candy ShockDrop case is the least bulky protective case I've seen.


One concern I had when I was looking into getting a case was finding a case that wouldn't distort the sound, since Paige needed the iPad for speech therapy.  I loved that this case did not affect the sound one bit.

My favorite feature was the option to have the protective screen.  I don't mind if she gets her toddler-ish hands (a.k.a. dirty, snotty hands) on the screen.  It also makes me even more confident that if Paige left it on the floor & my baby Lindsey got to it, it would survive!   Oh wait... that did happened several times! 


It has been the perfect case that has kept our iPad safe & sound.  I love having the peace of mind that it is protected as best as possible.  Overall, I feel extremely confident letting my 3 year old play with it and I give it 5 stars! 


Hard Candy has cases for phones. iPods, iPads, Tablets, and MacBooks.  What ever case you need, they have you covered. 

Right now, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they are offering 20% off all pink Hard Candy merchandise with promo code  BCAM20.

  1. For our oldest, we bought him a "Cyber Acoustics IC-1000BK Leather iPad Cover/Case" from amazon when we bought his iPad (for his 3rd birthday). Our SLP uses this case for the iPad she uses with all clients, and it had held up well for several years. The ShockDrop case looks like a great one for our twins (not yet 2.5 years old) - the iPad will likely need more protection with them!

  23. The shock drop case like you got is my favorite but I also like the squish skin. Id love to win one of these great cases for my iPad. A protective case is SOOOOO important and these sound great as though I try to take care of my iPad, there are times it gets dropped by accident or my little dogs knock it off of something. I'd love to protect it with a hard candy case! Thanks for the chance to win
