    Speck today announced the launch of the Case-E, a new tablet case that's aimed to protect iPads that are being used by children. The Case-E is a followup to the Speck iGuy, one of Speck's most popular iPad cases.

    The Case-E, like the iGuy comes in bright colors and uses soft but sturdy materials that are easy to grip. Case-E features 6-foot drop protection along with detachable EVA foam "arms" that kids can hold onto.

    The arms serve as a stand for use in landscape or portrait mode, and there's a tie for securing it to a vehicle's headrest when in the car.

    Speck plans to begin offering the Case-E iPad case for $39.95 starting during the first quarter of 2019. It will be available from the Speck website, and it is compatible with the last five generations of 9.7-inch iPads.

    Can’t tell from this write-up or photos, but is there a built-in screen protector to cover the iPad touch screen? From past experience, essential for young kids like my 5 and 3 year olds.

    It’s really hard to justify and iPad purchase for kids, when the fire kids tablet is $129.

    I got my kids $50 fireHD 8" tablets last year with a similar looking case for like $12 bucks. Installed google play store on them and the kids have been happy watching YouTube kids or educational apps ive installed. If they break them, no big sweat.

    Buying a Fire tablet is an easy way to quickly justify the purchase of an iPad for children. Those things are junk, junk, junk.

    Our fire tablet has taken some crazy abuse works great and amazon offers a no questions asked replacement if it breaks.

    Kids shouldn’t use tablets, they should be outside playing

    No... they're just bad. Slow. Bad screens. Bad touch recognition. Hard to navigate the Kids UI. Bad battery life. Have to use SD cards for apps. I have 2 of them, which is why I also now have 2 iPads for them both instead.

    The only thing worthwhile is if you get the Kids edition, they'll send you a new one no questions asked should it be damaged... so once that stage is past, it's not good for anyone over the age of 4.
