Protect Your Devices With Hard Candy And Gumdrop Cases! @hardcandycases #Giveaway #Sponsored

*This post was written by me on behalf of Hard Candy and Gumdrop Cases.  I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    Last Christmas, my husband bought me an iPad and I absolutely fell in love with it but I was concerned about letting the kids play on it because I didn’t want it to get damaged or scratched up.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t hold out for long and eventually started letting them play games on it and watch their favorite movies and television shows on it.

    They have always taken pretty good care of it but I’m still usually on edge making sure that I watch them carefully so that they don’t just leave it laying around.  I finally decided to tell my husband that, if the kids were going to play on it, we would need to invest in a good case for it so that it wouldn’t get dinged up.

    With the upcoming school year beginning this month, we were very excited to have the opportunity to review a Squish Skin Case from Hard Candy Cases.  It is a snug, form-fitting silicone skin that resists damaging impacts through the presence of air-filled chambers just below the surface of the case.  I also loved that it comes in a variety of bright colors.

    Since it’s my iPad, I chose to go with the pink Squish Skin Case.  Believe me, my husband and sons were not too happy about that and would have preferred a different color but, too bad.  I was really impressed with how snugly the silicone fit around my iPad for maximum protection from falls or impact.  The air-filled chambers really provide cushioning for the device and make me worry less when the kids are using it.

    Lastly, I loved that the case was smooth to the touch and not rubbery and hard like some other silicone cases.  I have complete access to all buttons and media controls while the case is on my iPad because it lines up perfectly.  Not to mention how stylish and pretty it makes my device look!

    The best part is that Hard Candy and Gumdrop are doing a major sale on several of their cases to finish off Summer 2013 with a bang!  For a limited time, they are offering up to 75% off the original price on several of their cases.  Make sure you head over right away to check out their big sale so you and your kids can save money on these cases and not have to worry about dropping or damaging your devices again!

  1. I don’t have an iPad (yet). I plan on getting one very soon, so I’d love to have one of these cases. I like the pretty bright colors, and you mention that it’s smooth and not rubbery-feeling. I’ve seen lots of cases that are rubbery. I’d prefer one that’s not, so this one sounds great.
    Thanks for the chance!

  2. I have a few cases for my iPad but another one wouldn’t hurt. I usually let Madison play with mine all day long, most of her apps are on there anyway. So far she’s been pretty good for a toddler but I can understand where you’re coming from totally. 🙂

  3. I don’t have an iPad but I have heard horror stories from friends of their smashed screens. I would definitely be using one of these cases if I had an iPad.

  4. I really like the design of the Squish Skin Case from Hard Candy Cases. I love the colors…not sure if blue or lime is my favorite. I don’t have a case on my ipad and am always worried it will get dinged up. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

  5. I don’t have an iPad, but I would love the purple one too. Definitely it is something that I would get. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  6. Daisy Tremorev says

    This case looks perfect for us – trendy style and functional! My son likes to use my iPad, so it’s important to have a good case.

  7. Love the pink! I have a Samsung device, but would love to own an Apple product in the future. 🙂 That might be one of our future purchases.

  8. Dawn Spatulas On Parade says

    Very nice. I like the color. I have an iPhone and my Otterbox is pink. I have always gone plain black no frills, but decided to do the “girlie” thing for once.
    Great that it works for you. You need to protect your iPad but look good too. 🙂

  9. What a fun case for your iPad. I have my iPad as well and I have some very simple case for it, but when one has kids, I guess the type really does matter.

  10. Amanda McMahon says

    i don’t have an ipad but i have a tablet that we have a “on the couch or bed only” rule due to no case for it

  11. My kids have an iPad, and they really do need something that will protect. I’ll look into these next time we need to change their cases!

  12. Cute cover. I don’t have an ipad but I do use a cover for my iphone. Better safe than sorry.

  13. GrandmaBonnie A says

    Sorry I do not have an iPad I did not enter. I love the color though. It is an interesting concept to have air chambers for better protection. I will pass this on to my daughter-in-law she has an iPad.

  14. I used to buy Hard Candy cosmetics and accessories back when I was in middle and high school; I had no idea their company still existed. What a cute iPad case and a generous giveaway!

  15. I really like the air chambers which should help protect if it falls. I also really like the large variety of colors. I checked their site and was impressed with the selection and prices (especially the sale prices!). I really need one for an iPad Mini I gave to my father.

  16. Noor Unnahar says

    These cases look strong . I have a tablet and I am always concerned with it . Can’t leave without a case.

  17. Melinda Kuffler Dunne says

    I like that is is a sturdy case. I also really like that it is available in different colors. I love the pink one you got. It is good to remind those guys that it is your iPad…lol.

  18. Great idea, I don’t have an iPad though, do they do it for kindles?

  19. I like that you can basically chose any color you want. Also with this case, I will not be afraid to let my kiddos take a turn with the ipad.

  20. I love that the case comes in turquoise, pink or lime…would be hard to decide. The price is affordable and air filled chambers sound like a form of bubble wrap that would keep my ipad safe…I am quite the klutz and have lost a few laptops over the years from dropping them.

  21. Courtney Pies says

    Hey, it’s your iPad, so you get to choose the color! 😉 Glad it’s doing it’s job! I will have to keep Hard Candy cases in mind if I ever get an iPad!

  22. This is a really nice looking cover. I have been using the kind that have a flap over the front for mine at work, but my first one was a case more like this and I thought it was better as far as being able to hold it.

  23. I would have totally picked the pink one, too. My husband would have hated it – but that’s Ok 🙂

  24. Kelsey Apley says

    What I love about it is that it really looks pretty cute and it also protects your tablet!! Sometimes you see cases but they don’t look too pretty, and this has both!

  25. Jeanna johnson says

    I like that it is a snug and form fitting silicone skin that resists impacts! Maybe I won’t be so afraid to share my iPad if I were to have this!

  26. I like that the buttons on your device are still accessible through the case. Drives me nuts with some others!

  27. I like that it would fit perfectly and still not be too bulky

  28. I like that it’s precise fit gives the iPad maximum protection and it doesn’t restrict you from getting to controls when the case is on.

  29. It looks like a good, protective cover. (Gianna)

  30. I entered the Smurfs giveaway. (Gianna)

  31. I like that the case is a snug fit. I like that the case is not sticky but smooth to the touch/feel. Also it protects by have air bubbles inside the case.
