    Anyone? My grandson threw his iPad mini in the bathtub yesterday. He's a toddler, and no, of course he doesn't NEED an iPad, except without one there is no such thing as a peaceful car ride and we are about to take an 11 hour trip to Disneyworld.

    I have a used mini 2 on the way (if I'm gonna replace the mini, I'm moving up a notch), but I want a waterproof case for him since he's in the "throw everything in the tub or garbage can" phase.

    Any suggestions for one that won't break the bank?

    Not cheap, but will last longer than the iPad. Beware of fakes from Amazon/Ebay. You can occasionally find authorized sellers like Staples running them on closeout pricing.

    Ouch! That price definitely hurts! It's probably worth it though, so I'll have to give those a closer look!

    Ziplock bag might do. Get one of the thick freezer ones. I assume your toddler is being supervised while using the iPad, so all it needs is to protect it for the few seconds it takes an adult to fish out the iPad when it is thrown into water.
