If you would like the On-Off / Sleep button to be easier to press, simply use a few layers of electrician tape cut to size, placed on the inside of the cover, over the portion that contacts that button. You can customize how easy/difficult the button is to use by adding more or less layers of tape. A super easy mod, takes 2 minutes, surprising how much difference it makes. I did this mod in response to an aged staff member who had difficulty turning the ipad on/off for their students. Note, it also makes it easier for kids to use that button so take that into consideration. If this tip was helpful, please click Yes so it stays noticed on the review list.
We've tried EVERY case for our daughter, who has significant disabilities, autism, and uses an iPad for communication. This is the ONLY foam case that is sturdy enough that I can leave her with it. Other foam cases aren't as tight-fitting and she can remove them, and they are a softer foam so it feels like they can be twisted. One supposedly indestructible foam case ended up in a broken iPad screen within 2 days. We have 3 iPads and use a $250 case, a $100 case, and this case for the 3 of them, and I find this case nearly as protective as the much more expensive special needs cases. I LOVE the easy access to volume controls; our biggest complaint with most cases has been the way that buttons on the case are blocked or difficult to access. This is a lovely lightweight case and all the kids prefer it over any other we have tried, and trust me, I have a graveyard for cases that were not Maggie-proof. I take broken pieces of other cases to my iPad workshops for anyone who wants to see whether they survived my girl! She's the ultimate product tester for iPad cases and I've been really impressed by this case. We ordered it for a friend and ended up keeping it and giving the friend a more expensive one!
I bought this because it looked ergonomically comfortable to hold while using our ipad and wanted something that wouldn't add to the weight of the ipad already. Another reason why is because my autistic son would get upset with it and throw the ipad or just drop it wherever he was! This is holding up well to a 4 year old and for us as well and he is not bothered by it at all. (he usually will try and dismantle any case on the ipad and tear off the screen protector as well but with this case he can't get to the edge of it!) It is WELL worth purchasing if you value your ipad like we do and it will protect it from all drops as well. Plus with the color of it you can always find it wherever it gets left!!! Thanks for a great product!!!!
We're glad to hear you love the SuperShell! Please be aware that it is possible for the device to be broken if dropped in the SuperShell even though we designed the SuperShell to provide superior protection. Care should always be taken when handling electronic devices. -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
This is a great product! It completely protects the ipad from damage. I literally can throw my ipad onto a concrete floor and it just bounces around. My 3 year really likes the grip and I like the peace of mind. Thanks!
Firstly I need to say that I've never been a big fan of protective shells on the iPad. I've always thought it was best to use the product as-is, so I've never even given these things any extra thought. However, my wife is having a home-school where she's using iPad's in her class and she wanted something that the kids could easily hold and also not worry about the iPad if it was dropped onto the floor. After quite a lot of searching we decided that the SuperShell looked like a good choice. I was a little bit concerned that that foam would be too soft and would easily tear and too spongy to hold. When the products arrived I was pleasantly surprised. The shell is very firm making it easy to hold the iPad (3rd gen) with one hand on any side without it feeling awkward or that the iPad would slip out of the shell. The kids love the case (ages range from 8 - 16) and the younger ones love the brighter color ones. My wife started using one as well for her personal iPad, but I resisted, being a tad stubborn as usual. However after a couple of weeks of seeing her use the shell and how comfortable it seemed, especially when lying in bed, I folded. I'm now using the SuperShell myself and I don't regret it. The shell makes it so easy to hold and even though it does make the iPad quite a lot thicker it's totally worth it. I highly recommend this product for anyone with kids, and not only that. It's also great for anyone who wants to ruggedize their iPad for any purpose.
Please put a cut out on the top for the MIC.... My kid likes to talk to this cat and dog that repeat what you say.. Great protector beyond that!
We have tested the SuperShell in use with the microphone on the iPad using a wide variety of apps and have not been able to identify any interference caused by the closed-cell foam. Please contact us with any concerns regarding the use of this feature. Thank you! – Team M-Edge.”
It definitely encompasses the ipad in a bubble. I am still not convinced it would protect the screen and wish there was a way it could "cover up" the screen when it wasn't in use--like something that would fold out.
Great product , so much better than others we have tried. Have purchased these from you to use throughout our school and they are very robust in the classroom - light and easy to handle. Now we await one for the mini iPad, is it in the pipeline?
SuperShells for the iPad Mini are available to purchase here: iPad Mini SuperShell
This is a very high quality product. I liked it right away, though it makes an iPad2 HUGE. It's been drop-tested (kids got to it real quick), and all seems well. I do think that for the price it is a good value; though its value could be increased by including a screen protector. Competing products include screen protection as well.
I thought I was cursed with my sons IPAD2 purchsed from his grandparents for his birthday. After replacing one and having the screen replaced twice I finally bought the EDGE. I am no longer ICURSED! Thanks! When my husband dropped it on purpose I almost fainted but what a relief that it worked and not cracked.
I bought this for my 6-year-old's new iPad 2. He loves it. It gives it a fun, childish look while protecting the iPad. There are a few flaws: there is no screen protector. This hasn't been an issue for us yet, but may be in the future. The other problem: you can't access the volume buttons when the cover is on. Everything else is easily accessible. It's not the perfect product, but is by far the best I've found.
Thanks for your review! The Super Shell features push buttons to adjust the iPad 2's volume. -Aubrey, Team M-Edge
We searched through about 20 or so different cases for my 4 year old son's ipad2 - this is the best we found. First day, Christmas morning it was put to the test. He dropped it from about 3 ft in the air on the corner and it bounced and didn't crack! Very light too, doesn't add much weight to the ipad2. I would like to see more colors too.
I have mixed feelings about this. It does a great job protecting the ipad itself if it gets dropped or thrown. I have no complaints about that. What I don't like is that my kids (2 autistic and a toddler) can all easily pop the ipad out of the cover. They usually do this because the volume buttons are difficult to use while its in the cover. We've been through 3 cases so far (and 3 ipad screens) and this is the best by far- but still not exactly what we want because of the fact that it is so easily removed by kids.
Great product! Easy for disabled son to hold and use his iPad. Protects the product well. Can access all features on the iPad. Only suggestion would be to make the access to the charging port a little bigger. Difficult to unplug charger and you end up pulling on the wire a bit to remove it.
We are impressed with the level of protection of the M-Edge Super-Shell. Our 4-year old daughter loves the look and mommy is very happy with the tactile feel. It’s an excellent cover for our iPad and highly recommend to other buyers looking for a solid cover without the bulkiness and bland appearance others offer.
We are a small primary school. The SuperShell fit is nice and snug on our new ipad (3), feels nice to hold as an adult, kids love it too.The on/off and volume buttons are purposefully difficult to adjust so young kids can't adjust them, which is great for our needs. The headphone and usb ports are slightly constricted by the shell, so you need to bend the foam a little to connect things. You can't use apple usb cables that have side pinch clips, only ones that you can pull straight out, as you can't access the side pinch clips. This isn't much of a problem, and is worth it for such a protective and kid friendly case. You can lay it face down and the screen doesn't touch the table. We will buy this case again if we get another ipad.
I haven't given this shell to my nephews yet, but I anticipate they'll love it. The only problem is, they'll not be strong enough to press the on/off switch through the shell. I think they'll end up letting the power-saver function of the iPad shut the device off.
I bought this for my autistic son's ipad. It is totally worth every cent. My son has dropped his ipad from sitting in a shopping cart, and with this SuperShell it just BOUNCES. My only complaint is that I couldn't get the screen protector that was already on it to stay on anymore, but I plan to purchase a new screen protector and try again.
You can almost play basketball (don't) with this thing with any of your iPads hooked into it without them getting damaged. It's amazing. I would suggest it for any child or adult. It's light and the perfect size for gripping. Thinner is NOT better. It conforms to your body so you can watch it while on your back. Once I put it on, I often toss my iPad on my bed or chair. If it falls off, it's fine unless the front hits a corner. But because it's thick, the corner would have to come straight at it. This stuff reminds me of the stuff in a Nerf football.
I bought 3 of these to protect school iPads that are used with special needs students. They are very well designed, allowing access to all ports, the camera, and speakers. The iPad fits in firmly, but the case is easy to put on and take off. It has a nice feel and provides a good grip for the students with poor coordination. I'm going to be a lot less worried about the iPads being damaged by drops now!
Very sturdy and provides great protection. Access to controls (power switch and volume) cumbersome. Requires that you squish through the foam to press the buttons. Placement of iPad within the cover is critical. I'm thinking of cutting these areas out with a knife.
Thank you for your recent purchase! The foam is there to provide additional protection to the device, we do not recommend cutting this area as it will void any warranty. We want you to be able to protect your device at all times. Please contact us if you have any further questions. Take Care, Team M-Edge
I finally found the perfect kid case after lots of searching. Fits iPad 2 and 3 very tightly and provides great all around protection. Even as an adult I don't mind using this case, makes the iPad super easy to grip. Bummed to see they have more colors now than when we ordered.
Perfect for children with special needs...and their siblings!!!
I love this shell for the I pad2. It was a little difficult to put on but it is a wonderful product. I wish it would come in more colors. Like pink!!!!!!
We gave this as a Christmas gift to our children who have a two-year old. He loves to use the iPad2, but their old case was for generic iPad and covered some of the ports. They love the case and say they can let him use the iPad with no worries. It is so tough. Thanks for the great design!!
Ottima custodia a prova di caduta veramente fatta bene,spedizione in italia meno di 48 ore Incredibile.. Sono soddisfatto e consiglio a tutti voi dall'italia di comperare su questo sito affidabile,comunicazione via mail eccellente *****
Love how lite it is and durable.
This is a great case for younger students. The only issue I have with it is that it can not be used with the Apple iPad Cart. The case will not fit in the slots. I tried many different things to make it useable but just could not get then all to fit. I tried taking out all of the slots but then they became to 'wobbly' to be functional with the cart.
I have an iPad that my 3 children are constantly stealing to play with. :) I had no cover and knew in a matter of time, someone would accidentally drop it. Been looking for MONTHS for something that met all my criteria in safety for my iPad & found it here!! It is PERFECT. Fits tightly, but not so tight that you can't remove it if need be. Is raised in the front too, so it protects the screen if it falls (I also recommend a clear screen protector sheet for kid scratches w/ Cars app) I have SEEN my kids drop this recently with NO problems. It was like a Nerf ball. It's not a cheap case, but it is worth every single cent!!! It's an investment on an expensive product!
This cover came highly recommended, with 3 active boys who've just got new iPADs, these robust, durable and stylish covers really fit the bill - unfettered access to controls is great too. Will be back once I get my new iPhone :)
This case is easy to hold and I don't worry about it being dropped. The case is not flimsy at all, its a strong thick material. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because I have to pop the case off the end to charge it otherwise it doesn't have a complete connection for some reason. The case isn't covering it, it just puts a little pressure in the plug so it beeps as if its not connected. Otherwise we absolutely love it and don't regret the purchase. Great product!
Very happy with this product overall. Almost exact same protection as 100$ covers at 35%of the price. After a drop is still in perfect condition.
The super shell peeled my screen protector off at the corners and left it with many bubbles. Sent it back.
Has all the cut outs for plugs, speaker and volume control which is excellent. Offers great protection for the iPad and fits snugly. Overall a brilliant product and would highly recommend to friends.
Excellent product, definitely worth $30.
Great product - perfect for our needs!
Great for children and clumsy older adults ie grandparents
We bought these for our kids, ages 5 and 8, and we love them. I feel so much better knowing that if they happen to drop it or bump it on something their Ipad is protected. Because no matter how often you tell a kid to be careful with something their bound to have an accident sooner or later. The only con I've found is that we couldn't put the Super Shell on without the screen protector coming off along the top or bottom edge.
My 4 year old monopolizes my iPad and since he broke it 2 weeks after I got it I am always fearful of it happening again. The Medge has given me peace of mind. The only problem I have is trying to plug in the charger.
I really love the grip on the shell. The material is great and sturdy. However, the volume control is hard to use and have to take off the shell to charge. But it does protect the iPad my 2 year old has been rough with it and it hasn't broken yet.
This case and more importantly... our iPad... survived a trip down 12 stairs and a not so soft landing on a concrete floor (TWICE!!!). Very pleased with the case. Only thing that I would change is the access to the earphone jack... tough to access with any offset plug. Really love the case and very easy for my son to carry and position for use. Would highly recommned this case to anyone with a child that uses an iPad.
I really like this case! I am no longer afraid when my kids are carrying my iPad around the house. It stays on great and makes the iPad easy to hang onto. I have 2 suggestions to make it better. One problem is with the volume button. When trying to turn it up or down it seems to go all up or all down. A little tricky. The other thing is that I wish it came with a screen protector. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase!
I love this case. I don't even have young children, but it is just more comfortable to hold, and you can prop it up on the counter, and it doesn't slide. It is lightweight, and it fits perfectly. Love it!
The protection on this is phenomenal. I have a 15-month-old and I never worry about her handling our ipad2 on her own. My only complaint is that the volume buttons have some issues. It is difficult to just turn the volume up or down by a notch or two. Instead, the buttons often stick and it get to the full loudness or goes mute. Maybe a little less padding on these buttons would be better.
This product is amazing! My 6 year old daughter received an iPad for her birthday. She dropped the iPad and shattered the screen...Apple replaced the iPad and I never let my daughter walk with the iPad or use it in a room without carpeting. When reviewing the otterbox and gumdrop cases I came across this product. The super shell is half the price of the other cases and has a textured grip that makes holding it easier for little hands. Both my daughters are free to walk around the house carefree with their iPads. I actually dropped the pad to test it out and did a happy dance! Just wonderful!!!!!
I actually bought the shell for an iPad 1, which it does not fit. We have integrated it onto our iPad 2 and love the feel and durability aspects. I was not completely enamored with the limited color options which gives you the "4" rating.
I bought a top end iPad 3 figuring I would end up using it a lot with work. Turns out it's my 2 and 3 and a half year old that log most of the time on it. Without this case I would not feel comfortable letting them use the iPad unless they were sitting and the iPad was somehow locked down. This case is awesome. My kids are comfortable holding it. Not too big and it doesn't easily fall out of their hands. And if it does, the iPad is pretty protected. It won't protect the glass if it was dropped on a rock or something but in general - great protection and I am comfortable letting my kids use the iPad now!
I would have given it 5 stars it the case fit a bit more snuggly and came with a protective screen. Besides me nitpicking, the case is awesome. Great protection, especially having a 5 year old boy, easy to handle and won't scratch any surfaces I put it on.
I bought this case because my 19 month old daughter has been using my iPad, and I wanted to protect it. I feel totally safe letting her use it. It's really easy to hold, and isn't heavy at all. I don't have to worry about her dropping it anymore. Love it!
Great case, lightweight but still does the job. Unfortunately, there is no access to adjust the iPad's volume controls.
Simply Awesome Excelent Increible Please make it in more colors
The shell is ideal for toddlers; however, disappointed in no access for the side buttons to control volume. Also, difficult getting iPad to fit inside the case. Beautiful colors; good shock absorber.
This is the best product to protect your ipad especially when you have children using it!
the case is great already have them, just replacing. but the price online was double from what it goes for at staples, not happy abt that.
This product has been perfect for my 2 year old. Soft and easy to grip in toddler hands and well protected during trips and stumbles.
I am a teacher and I bought this case for my fourth grade student. It works great! It keeps his iPad safe, and he thinks it's cool!
love the product and also the service I received, very fast shipping, very satisfied
I can't say enough good about m-edge as a company. The supershell was "lost" by the shipping company and, after waiting more than three weeks, I contacted m-edge. They sent a second one that arrived in three days, along with the "lost" supershell. Ten stars for customer service. And the supershell is simple the best case for little kids. Gives them something solid to hold onto and protects the iPad like nothing else. Have bought two supershells and will buy another when the need arises.
We are an organization that works with youth and adults that have disabilities. We needed top notch protection for our iPads used by both staff and clients. M-Edge has proven very effective with only one iPad out of over 100 units damaged by a client. Both staff and clients also like how much easier and secure an iPad is to hold and use with the M-Edge installed. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone with an iPad.
I could not be happier with my SuperShell Closed Cell Foam! I have a 2 and 4 year old that have become quite fond of my iPad so I knew I needed something "bomber proof.". After researching iPad cases, this was the one with the best reviews. I decided to try it out and I love it! Not only has my iPad survived many drops by my children, but it has also fallen out of my husband's truck face-down onto pavement with no scratches, cracks, etc! AMAZING!!! My iPad still looks brand new! (I did add a clear screen protector to my iPad as well as the case) I even use the case for myself at work since it is easier to carry and prop up against things. One coworker liked it so much, that I bought him one to use on his missions trip to Haiti where he will be working with children. He was so grateful knowing how much the kids wanted to hold his iPad last year. I bought my first case from Amazon, but after buying one for my friend directly through the M-Edge website I now ONLY recommend buying directly from the M-Edge company as their customer service is beyond exceptional! They are extremely friendly and when the mail carrier goofed, they made sure that another was sent out that day so that it would reach me in time. They also replied promptly to my phone messages.
This is a great, durable i-pad case, which gives a lot of protection (all except for the fact that the screen itself is still "exposed"). The only complaint is that it is hard to get the case ON to the i-pad.
Very pleased with the product.
Great product. My son loves it. Loves the color and overall friendliness. Definitely kid-appropriate.
I spent two years making sure the kids treated our iPad with kid gloves. And then while cleaning it, I dropped it by mistake and smashed it to pieces on the tile floor. Not a good day. I considered all the options. Shopped online and in person. For the price, I felt like I had to get the M-Edge case and see if it was as good as the others. It is! Buy it. It provides easy handling and peace of mind.
This product performs exactly as promised. Superior protection at a reasonable price. With this superior protection comes a little extra bulk and inconvenience to access controls, but it's a small price to pay for the peace of mind in case of a dropped iPad!
Overall the SuperShell installed onto the iPad 4 without any issues and provides a much more comfortable rounded edge with a textured surface for holding onto the edges. Some small things worth mentioning: - Connecting with the Thunderbolt cable on the bottom does get some interference ( the case pushes slightly against it ) but not enough to get more than a mention. - The sound does have to pass through a bit of a tunnel so sound is directed more away from the person using it that it already did and can be muffled easily when obstructed. - The volume button area works well. - The material it is made from is known in the State of California to cause cancer. That is a bummer - it had a strong smell new out of the box that faded in time. Again, great case that really should take a beating and keep the iPad safe. The next version hopefully will have tackled some or all of the small issues.
IMPORTANT - The closed-cell foam used to make the SuperShell is not known, by the State of California or anywhere else, to cause cancer. The foam is latex-free and is the same type as that used to make Crocs shoes.

The case is lightweight and protects the iPad completely. Very easy to access all buttons and I feel much more confident letting my 3 year old play with the iPad.
The case offers excellent protection, but the volume controls are virtually impossible to use. I recommend downloading a volume control app.
It's a great looking case, it just doesn't fit correctly. It's form factor is good but it doesn't line up with the volume buttons. The up volume worked fine but the down volume wouldn't work with the case on.
The volume control should line-up and work. If you find that yours does not, please contact us using the links at the top and bottom of this page and we will be happy to assist you. - Jackie at M-Edge
The SuperShell is PERFECT for children! I use them in my classroom of special needs children. They not only come in great colors, but they are easy to hold on to and have protected our IPads from several drops. LOVE them!
The shipping took a day longer than expected but the case itself is WONDERFUL.
This is an excellent case! It makes iPad look good, and protects very well! Fun to see bounce, and relieving when you pick it up and see it is perfectly fine. I recommend taking it off at times and cleaning the iPad and case, though, as lots of little pieces of junk accumulate over time
It really protects your ipad from shocks. Extremelly recommended for kids.
Overall it's good but it's hard to push the buttons and put the charger in the case is so thick!
The case is comfortable to hold and provides great protection. However, it is near impossible to adjust the volume with the case on.
The SuperShell should not impede use of the volume control. If you are having difficulty please contact us directly using the links at the top and bottom of this page and we will be happy to assist you. - Jackie at M-Edge
I bought this because my three year old Grandson loves my iPad. He has dropped it, so many times and not damaged my iPad at all. I would recommend it for every one..
My kids think it's beautiful and I think it protects my money! Very fast delivery.
My one year old love his case. Protects the iPad extremely well.
I love it! It is lightweight and funky looking. I teach special education students who have dropped the iPad several times and this case has protected it.
Love this iPad case. With 3 kids under the age of 10, I know our iPad is well protected. It is a little tricky to adjust the volume as others have commented, but it's a minor issue. Our iPad has survived getting dropped and what- have-you countless times and it's still as good as new. Will definitely recommend! Shipping was sper fast too!
Perfect protection and easy to hold
Good protective design, solid feel, a bit smooth/slippery but easy to hold
Using the latest 4th Gen iPad, the bottom power/usb adapter port is too close to the case material and not only difficult to insert but is strained by the case pressure on it when the plug is in. The case clearly needs a slight tweak. But otherwise it does the job well to protect the iPad.
This case is perfect for everyone! It has awesome protection and is easy to hold, perfect for kids. But, it is also light as a feather. It is much lighter than any other cases we have had, but is a bit more bulky compared to some as well. A little difficult to plug in to charge, but is perfect overall. And, the price is right! Love it!
My 7 year old nephew who has autism dropped the ipad and the SuperShell saved the screen from being cracked.
Very protective cover for my iPad when the daughter uses it
my first m-edge cover was purchased through thinkgeek's site and as soon as it arrived we were in love so I googled m-edge and bought a second one from the site directly for our second iPad. they are excellent with children with disabilities and have been asked numerous times in the community where I got them as well! excellent product, thanks so much!
This is too bulky to use myself but it works great for when my 2 year old granddaughter is playing her learning games or enjoying family photos in the gallery. It creates a non-slip grip for her to securely hold the iPad and I don't worry any more when we sit together to use the iPad. The Smart Cover from apple comes off when she holds the iPad and I worry things would get scratched. This wonderful SuperShell is a terrific solution.
The Supershell transformed my iPad2 from a fragile piece of aluminum-framed glass and microchips, into a hardy piece of mobile computing which you can literally toss aside as you go from one task to the next, during a busy day. You can literally bounce this thing off the floor, with no reservation. Casually holding the iPad by the frame edge as you walk around is almost effortless as well, with its substantial, grippy frame. What a great product!
This thing is awesome. The iPad has survived countless falls, drops, throws from a 2 year old and a 6 year old, and the case works great, is light, and makes holding it easier for the kids. Would recommend this to anyone with kids.
We have a little turbulent kid, and this product is the good solution.
It is great to handle. The students have an easy time using it too. It is a little hard to push the buttons at times, but overall not bad.
GREAT case for those of us with arthritic hands. It's far easier to hold something fat then skinny without adding weight. The only thing more difficult is plugging the charger in, but if you slip the lower right edge off it's easier....
We are using this product to protect I Pads in a pre-school classroom of four and five year old children. It is easy for them to hold and the colors are appealing! We've yet to have a drop - thankfully - so can't remark on effectiveness of protection. I watched the You Tube video on your website of children dropping it - and it sold me!
Nice product. I refer it to anybody who have kids for protecting their iPad.
Love this case! We have one in blue and green. We are horrible parents, because we bought iPads specifically for our kids. However, we needed something to keep them off our iPhones. This makes them actually look like toys, which I think helps when we are out in public. They have dropped their ipads several times and the iPads have been safe. I haven't been able to put a screen protector on, but I've only tried once and got frustrated. We get compliments on these cases all the time. We highly recommend them!!!
We bought this case to use with students aged 3 - 5 and haven't been disappointed. It is durable, lightweight, and offers great protection... all at a very reasonable price.
Love this cover! It feels really great, the bulges on the sides make it so easy to hold. Drop proof too. I can't take it with me because my purse is too small, but use it at home. Wish it could be styled to accept apple magnetic cover. First one I got was too small. The replacement is perfect. I will be worry free when I next visit my grand kids;0)
Very sturdy yet light weight. My daughter is a 5 y/o CPK and she loves her iPad. We had a much heavier hard-shell product, that she disliked to the point of dropping her iPad to deliberately dislodge the case...she hasn't done that at all with the M-Edge.
Grip is fantastic. Easily able to access all the buttons. Nice skin for ur iPad. Need not worry when kids are using iPad.
Protects the iPad when being used by kids & also provides the iPad with a more substantial mass to hold onto when reading an iBook.
Love this product for school-aged students! I feel safe knowing the SuperShell will be protecting my iPad while students are handling the iPad. I will definitely be ordering more!
You need to advertise this for older (50 and up) iPad users. The iPad is easier to hold, carry around from room to room and hold.
I had a cheaper protective shell before I got this one and this is so much better. Lightweight, tight fit, on/off buttons are more easily accessible for me than if the device is not covered.The only button that isn't accessible is the lock rotation. The power cord is a little difficult too, but that is difficult even with the device "naked". If I could give it 4.75 stars I would.
I'd been looking for an iPad case that would allow my granddaughter to better grasp the iPad and prevent her from "bonking" herself in the face with the iPad.
This item is exactly what we needed to protect our iPad. We have an 8 year old daughter who drops items once in a while. It was very easy to fit the iPad in the case and all iPad buttons and ports are easily accessible.
Awesome I Actually trust my 7 year old with an iPad.
The case fits really nice on our new ipad. It's snug enough that there is no loss of ease of use of the device. Having the protection with our kids carrying it around all over is nice for peace of mind. Only possible downside is that the buttons are not super easy to access - up/down volume button will take some extra pressure to work properly. That said, worth every penny!
works great! Makes ipad easier to hold for kids and adults.
I bought that shell for my year old daighter, so she will be able to hold iPad and drop it at her will. Now, after some time using it I cannot imagine iPad without that shell. It just makes iPad better: no sharp edges, so I read while lying on my back; it is easier to hold it; no worries that I may bump iPad and shatter the screen. I recommended it to my friends, some of them bought it and really like it too.
This is a great product. Its easy for my 2 year old to hold and keeps the ipad very safe. We love it!
We have 2 Ipads for each child 5 &7 This need like case has been wonderfill and they like the easy grip feel and I love the protection when the drop it! Highly recommended! Co workers want to order for their kids great color selection. A different color for each child.
This case seems to help my daughter manipulating the ipad. She has autism with sensory integrative disorder and it looks like the case helps her switching from horizontal to vertical view easily. It's true it is very comfortable to handle even for an adult. Otherwise, the case seems sturdy enough so far and M-Edge shipping was lightning fast.
I have three grandchildren who use the ipad to play games etc. I worried that one of them was going to drop it and cause damage. This product is easy for them to hold and very cushioned for protection. The function buttons are harder to get to because of the thickness of the cover.
Mu three year old uses his iPad a lot more with his cool case that makes it easier to carry and grip.
I bought this in my favorite color purple for my 3 year old! Although it does add bulk to the slim iPad, it does the job to protect it from falls/drops. It is easy to grip for small hands. I took my iPad to the Apple Store for service and all the sales people liked it and have never seen it. People at the grocery store have stopped to ask me where I purchased this!
Based my selection on the ces video that showed this girl throwing the ipad around while the case protected it. Very pleased with the quality of the product, not stressed while my kids fight over it. Product provides for a better grip, is very sturdy, and does not add to the weight.
I would say we are more than pleased with this case. We have a 4 & 5 year old that use our iPad 3 everyday and have stopped worrying and hovering when they use it thanks to this shel! When out in public we get asked about it all the time and no buddy can believe it only cost $35.00! My only complaint would be the top button and the volume controls are not accessible so I take the corner of the shell off multiple times a day to adjust or sleep the iPad and a stand would be great....
A fellow blogger who had reviewed the case a few months ago, suggested it. We have been very pleased. It has made the iPad durable for my autistic daughter to use freely & even gives it the look of an item made for children. My only suggestion would be to make a stand that accommodates the case. I know I would buy one.
I first saw it on my little nice iPad, and I like it, now I'm a grown up and I have it and I love it.
My grand kids love it, it is easy for them to hold.
I knew the new ipad(3) would take a beating. This case helps a lot. I installed a full Zagg skin and it still fits swell. Thanks!
It works as described. It's durable and easy to grip. My only suggestion is to widen the gap for the power plug. While it is fairly easy to insert the power cable into the iPad, because the shell is so thick, it is almost impossible to get a grip on the plug itself and thus it must be removed by pulling the cord which could potentially damage the cord. Then again, power cords are cheap compared to iPads. Perhaps increasing the gap would subject the power interface to potential damage.
Although this product was designed with children in mind, this 28 year old loves it! I love to read while I work out, but was nervous about brining my new iPad2 to the gym. Now I can work out with peace of mind, knowing if it accidentally takes a tumble off my machine the edges will at least be protected. Minus the obnoxious green colour (which has prompted quite a few conversations), this is the perfect gym mate for me.
I have bought this case for my 5 years old daughter, made well and looks well too. Love it!! Super Fast shipping from United States to Saudi Arabia in 3 Days!!! wow Keep up the good work for iPad3 soon :)
We love this case for the iPad! It makes it so much easier to hold. We are much more comfortable letting our 5 year-old use the iPad now. Great product!
I did quite a bit of research to find the perfect case for my son to use the iPad. I found it in the SuperShell! It completely protects the iPad while looking cute and making it very easy for 3 year old and 36 year old hands to hold on to it. I've been asked by several people where I got it, as they are ordering it now, too.
What a great, no, GREAT piece of protective gear. I was a little unsure when purchased but now I am a believer. I have more fun showing people what it does than actually using it. Thanks for making a product that lives up to its billing and making it fun too.
We bought this for our two year old. It's great! It makes the Ipad into something like an etch-a-sketch so he never has the problem of two hands on the screen at once. And the Ipad has made it through some drops off the couch unscathed.
My 2 year old has dropped a few times so far and protected well. It is working !
We've introduced the iPad into our church class, primarily as a communication aid for our students with autism. We needed to protect it from both accidental damage and anger outbursts. This shell seems to be just about perfect! All the cutouts for ports and cameras work great. Power and volume buttons are protected but accessible. Now to find the perfect screen saver that will work with this, providing good protection but not curling at the edges where the shell meets the screen.
We wanted something that protected the iPad 2 if our little guy dropped it without adding a great deal of weight. With easy access to all buttons/ports, we never remove the iPad from this protective shell. We love it...well worth the price.
I got this especially for my son's iPad 2. It has proven itself numerous times now and even I like the way it feels in my hands. That said, I do think that some work needs to be done on button covers for the volume and power buttons. Need to work a little to get them to move. Also the opening for the power plug needs to be shifted a little bit up towards the front. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Pair it with a good screen protector and you have a great unit for kids.
We bought this based on an article in USA Today and we are so glad we did. It has saved our IPad from cracking in two many times as we clumsily leave it in precarious places. We do have an Apple Smart Cover which we cannot use in conjunction with our SuperShell. It would be wonderful to be able to use both. Maybe a new idea for the next generation SuperShell?
My kids really like this case. It is easy for them to grip and hold on too, and honestly, I think they drop my iPad less now. Although I wish it was not at all. ;)
Great form factor and serves its purpose! A++++
This is the best product ever. I had purchased a case from another site and it broke after three days. This one is tough for my little 5 year old autistic grandson who uses my I PAD2 a lot. If you have small children I would suggest this one for sure.
I spent days researching protective cases and covers for the iPad 2. This was the winner. The shape and design make it easy to grip and handle for little hands. So easy to put on and take off. And cleans up well with just a damp cloth. Best of of all it does exactly what it is suppose to do. It protects it from damage. Accidents happen with young ones. and with the M-Edge super shell I have peace of mind. I've seen it dropped and bounced and the iPad 2 is completely unharmed. I even took it in to show the school principal who immediately wanted to know where he could get some. I wouldn't mind a choice of different colours but over all I am extremely happy with the M-Edge super shell.
We have had this ipad cover for about 2.5 years and it still looks great. It get heavy daily use from a very "droppsy" kind of boy. It is very durable and keeps the ipad in perfect shape. I am not fearful of him breaking the ipad with this cover. In fact, I dropped it once off the kitchen table and it literally bounced once off the floor and miraculously, it survived! (Definitely not recommended to conduct your own test.) If I did not love the neon green case so much, I might be tempted to order another. Best product EVER!
I got a blue M-Edge supershell as a gift, instead of getting one of the higher priced Griffin cases, and I am somewhat surprised with how well this shell holds up. I've purposely dropped it a few times at about 3ft, and to my amusement, I watched it bounce a couple of times. I am also very satisfied with how my iPad fits in my hands with this case on. Come time I ever need another iPad case, I will definitely be purchasing one myself, rather as receiving it as a gift. Two drawbacks I have noticed though; the buttons are somewhat difficult to use but not impossible, and the case can easily come off sometimes.
While we are thrilled to hear that you are so happy with your SuperShell we are concerned about your comment that it can come off easily as it shouldn't. I will send you a follow-up email to see how it is working now. - Jackie at M-Edge
I really love the case, it is perfect for when my 4-yr-old granddaughter when she visits. The one biggest limitation is that my granddaughter loves to watch videos on it and there is no stand. Can anyone recommend a stand that would work with this case?
DO has for his ipad would buy if made for Kindle fire and samsung note 10.1. Anyone with kids who use as well NEED one please please please get into production and out to market ASAP
Are you guys goin to have the green one in the future?
This is hands-down the greatest case for our son's iPad! He has autism, and sometimes his iPad takes an unexpected tumble down the stairs, or even in one case - fell through the railings from our upstairs to our downstairs. It bounced several times before coming to a stop face-down. I expected a cracked or broken screen when I lifted up the iPad. However, it was damage free and in perfect working order. I also like the ease of removing the cover when necessary, and how quickly and nicely you can clean it. It is so durable that it even sustained zero damage after being nibbled on by our cat. I fully recommend this case to anyone who has young children that use the iPad or for clumsy adults like myself!
This cover is great ! Looks and feel amazing. Just was very hard to get on directions where not much help. What's the trick m-edge?
Here is a video showing how to install the Super Shell:
Good Cover, Bad Due Diligence on the design !!
The only suggestion I have is to add a screen cover...that would make this product perfect! I love it for my two small children, 4 & 6yrs.
I am a teacher and use iPads in my first grade classroom on a daily basis. I have used other cases, but this product is by far the best! My students love the colors and shape of the cases, and I love that my iPads are completely protected. If kids use your devices, I highly recommend this product!
Great for my granddaughter it really protects ipad
Purchased the ipad cell foam cover. It looks great and saves the ipad from damage when the kids use it.
The only reason I did not give the case 5 stars is beacuse of its size. The case is very large. With that said, my kids dropped the ipad twice while opening the gift on christmas morning and the case just bounced up and nothing happened. If you are getting the ipad for a kid this is the perfect case!
I have been using the SuperShell in my second grade classroom and at my house (three children under 6). I have no concerns handing students the iPad. The case not only protects the iPad, it makes the iPad easier to hold for kids and adults. This is a great product and several teachers in my building have moved to this case.
Best protection/most accessible for plug-ins/easiest to handle. Wouldn't have gifted the Ipad to preteen user without this in the box. Thanks m-edge.
My wife works with autistic children so this really works well with the ipad.
We're very happy with this case. It is perfect for protecting our iPad for our 2 year old. It is light weight and makes the iPad easy to hold. Although it is very easy for an adult to put on and remove, we like the case so much that we don't ever bother removing it.
my daughter loves this
this could be bettered if the home button could be covered to keep my lil un quitting an app,only thing holding me back really...id have to wait til he was older before buying this.
Very happy with product!
It really puts me at ease about my 3 year old daughter dropping her ipad. Th grips makes it easy for her to handle and carry around. Great product!
Great product but no access to vol cntrl or on/off button
Amazing and great for my kids to use as well. It gives me a piece of mind when my kids are playing on my iPad. Thank you for a great product and nice selection of colors as well. We now have the green and blue one!
