Very attractive to kids and does a good job protecting the iPad overall.
Jenaayy
I feel so much more comfortable with my 3 year old and even my 1 year old playing with the ipad now that I have the iGuy.
Mother of two
It is easy to hold when watching videos, and the arms make it easy to carry around.

There were very few reviews available when I bought this case for a 2-year-old who was in the hospital. While I felt more confident in the engineering of the Gumdrop case, I was swayed to this case due to price, ability to stand upright, larger gripping options, and the "fun" factor.

INITIAL OBSERVATIONS:

When I first received it, there was an overwhelming chemical-ish smell from the foam. After letting it sit outside for 24 hours, the smell was not as strong, but still noticeable.

After inserting the iPad (no directions are included), I noticed that the foam material was very static-y, seeming to attract cat hair out of thin air. I'll report back once I've seen how bad it gets under daily use.

This case claims to fit both the iPad 1 and 2. I assumed that was possible because the foam was squishy. It is actually a hard foam, and the iPad 2 rattles around in it. The case is clearly sized to fit the thicker iPad 1 exactly, not by any squishing. Despite the rattle, it was a tight enough fit getting the iPad in that I'm not worried about it being any less protected. In fact, it probably improves its ability to protect against a drop or fall.

When this cute little guy is standing up, it's natural to pick it up by grabbing the top edge of the case. Unfortunately this seems to be the weakest point, as it bends the top edge back a bit (and it wasn't even perfectly straight to begin with).

There is more of the iPad 2's bezel showing at the top than at the bottom (by the feet).

One thing I didn't think about before buying was usability in Portrait orientation. Even with the rotation-lock switch on the iPad set to Landscape, i didn't realize how many apps are hardcoded as Portrait only.

I tried about 5 different covers for the iPad 2 for my Son Sammy who is 5 year old & Autistic. I spent anywhere from $30 to $100. None of them worked because Sammy always wanted to take the covers off & he always figured out how within mins.In that time Sammy broke his iPad 2 times.I orginally didn't buy the iguy because I knew he would be able to get the iPad 2 out in like 2 seconds. After I return my 5th cover I tried the iguy. (Why not it was only $30.) To my surprise he LOVED IT. He NEVER tries to take it off. He loves the handles, it makes it easy for him to hold. He gets alot of attention from it, so it gives him alot of opportunies to interact with other children. We have had the iguy for a couple of months now & it has taken many of falls Sammy is very hard on it & goes back & fourth with him to school. It has done a great job in keeping the ipad safe. NO cracks No brakes.
I gave the iguy 4 stars & not 5 because it is a little big for the iPad 2 sometimes I see the corner of the iPad pop out & because it is big it is also hard to plug in & charge. I see some people are concerned with the smell but that is gone in a few days.Other- wise it is the Best Kids Cover FOR THE IPAd that I have tried.

I bought the Speck iGuy so my about-to-be 2 year old daughter could safely play with my iPad 2. It took about 2 minutes to unbox and "install".

Pros:
- I haven't (and don't plan to) drop tested this yet, but the rubber/foam seems substantial enough to absorb all reasonable falls on back/corners/flat on face. At minimum there is about a quarter inch of foam between the iPad and the outer edge of the foam.
- Gives the iPad some grippyness and heft for securely towing it around the house.
- When lying down, the "arms" can be tucked under it (with legs pointing away from you) for a nice viewing angle for looking at the screen/typing.
- The legs raise the iPad up just enough off of your lap to make it really convenient for watching videos.
- Stands up on well on flat surfaces.
- The arms are just the right amount of flimsiness to make it hard (but certainly not impossible) throw it by the arm (This could be an important plus for those with toddlers or special needs kids).

Cons:
- It's easily knocked over if bumped when it's standing up.
- It's VERY big and will be an inconvenience to bring on an airplane.
- Some off-gassing (stinky/chemically smell).
- Not complete protection from 2-year-olds as the screen is still fully exposed (make sure there aren't any table corners around).
- Makes the buttons and connections a bit tricky to access.

Bottom line: I would definitely recommend this product to anyone planning on letting a toddler use an iPad, but it's not a perfect solution (read: best not to only let your toddler use the iPad unattended). Also, if you are considering this for your special needs child, then I would recommend it to you as well.

Bought this case after my wife saw it being used by another family. Right from the get go, I had reservations on how well it would protect the iPad, especially because we had the otterbox defender case on it now. It is basically made of a spongy material. The ipad just pushes into it without any fasteners. The first thing we noticed is plugging in the charger was almost impossible. My wife found it easier to partially remove it from the case. Secondly, my son dropped the ipad from about 2 feet up off of a chair and the iPad popped right out of the case...got lucky there. The the final straw was he was carrying it across the room and the ipad again popped right out of the case and onto the floor. OMG, that was it. I returned this case and I'm going back to the otterbox!
