So the smart cover really doesn't protect the device. When the little one was using it this morning, it started to slip out of her hands. She was left with the smart cover detached from the iPad. The iPad was left on the floor with a nice crack in the screen. When I bought it I did think that the "cover" wasn't very good protection. My fault for not following through with this thought. This is just a warning for those who have little ones. iPad 2 = amount of days used.
