It is no secret that an iPad makes a great gift for kids. You will need to invest in a decent protective case for it though. The OtterBox TRUSTYWASH iPad Case is dishwasher safe (top rack), so parents can clean it easily. It also has a convenient handle that turns into a convenient stand.
This iPad 10th Gen Case meets the MIL-STD-810G 516.6 military standard, so it is drop and throw proof. You can find out more about it here.
