It was inevitable. As iPads find their way into the hands of kids (my kids inherited my iPad 1 when I upgraded to the iPad 2), we are seeing a whole new line of kid-friendly tablet accessories.
The latest examples are from Dean Designs and include Tablet Teddy Bears, Tablet Pet Pals, and Tablet Bean Bags. They are all cut from the same cloth, so to speak, which is a variety of cozy, stuffed animal style fake fur, with places to prop up an iPad or other tablet.
Some models have zippered compartments to keep your tablet safe during transport. Teaching kids to respect and care for electronics is always a good thing, and if these products help to protect your investment in a fragile tablet, while entertaining your kids, that's a good thing!
