Hello, does anyone know if a hard case is offered for the Kindle Fire HD? I have searched and can not find anything regarding a hard case that would fit the Kindle Fire HD. The Kindle Fire hard case made my Griffin does not fit the HD model.

Hmmm...I typed in "kindle fire hd hard case" right above in the kindle store search block and got some hits. Not sure where you looked, but you didn't look very hard. Please really search this time. Hint:

Assilem, were you able to find anything?? I have bought 2 of these for my kids, but now I am considering returning them for the Fire so I can get the proper childproof case.

When will they come out with a Tough Case? One that I can put on my Kindle Fire HD 7 inch, so that my 16 month old can play with it. HELP! I bought it for her and it looks like I will either need to return it or just wait!

Not sure what you mean by hard case, but I have an Amazon case which is advertised on the same page as the Fire HD. This case is very protective and automatically puts the Fire to sleep when closed. The link to it is Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" Standing Leather Case, Onyx Black (will only fit Kindle Fire HD 7").

Although the Amazon case Paxton cites is pretty tough (I have one) you may be looking for something that will enable you (and your son) to treat it like a hockey puck. If so, Otterbox apparently now sells their "Defender" for the 7" KFHD.

OtterBox Defender Series Protective Case for Kindle Fire HD 7" (Previous Generation), Black (with built-in screen protection)

BTW, Marware also makes a very well padded case for the KFHD. They've now redesigned it so that the KFHD can be charged with the cover closed.

Marware Revolve Genuine Leather Rotating, Standing Case for Kindle Fire HD 7" (Previous Generation), Charcoal (only fits Kindle Fire HD 7", Previous Generation)

16 months is a bit young.
You have to sit with the child so he/she doesn't put it in his mouth.

Maybe you should return it and try again in a couple years.

We all just have to hold on a few more weeks. The hard cases have to be casted to exact specs of the device and they need to get it RIGHT. I own 6 otterboxes and they are usually not far behind the release of a new device. They get the device when it is released to the public. My daughter is 7 and she is enjoying her kindle hd so much. It is not leaving the house without a shell though. I am on Otterbox's and Gumdrop's email notification list.
-BTW who are we to judge who is too young to use a computer or read a book? Get a life people, really.

Otterbox has a Kindle Fire HD case. If it's not available on Amazon yet, Radio Shack carries it.

Actually it is available on Amazon (both 7" and 8.9" models). However, Amazon apparently sold out their stock for the 7" model very quickly.

Otterbox is
now available from Amazon. It isn't cheap but it is very sturdy. I got one for my grandson.
