I really liked this case for my son. He owns the 2016 Kindle fire 7 that came with the green foam. His green foam.case has suffered many bumps, drops, and flings across the room. These cases are amazing for what they use it for. This case is a tad slimmer than his previous one. But still good for small hands. Grips great as well. I understand that this case is for the 2017 Kindle but purchased it because it was the only one they offered in black. A whole new case gives his tablet a sleek brand new look . If u are planning to purchase this case for the 2016 version be aware that it does have some inconsistencies through it's design. The volume buttons overlap but won't affect performance of the tablet.the buttons are still accessible. Another thing is that the camera alignment is a little off but what do u expect of it's for alternating models . Other than that it will fit the body snugly. I really loved my some new case. He even thought he got a new tablet.
You know how rough kids can be with their "toys", even expensive ones like a tablet! I love this case! Good feel, easy to hold, not "rubbery smelling". (Actually, it has a slightly good smell, though I can't describe it, and you'd have to have your nose right on top of it to even notice!)
This device fits the kids' little hands great, doesn't slip out, and has definitely saved the device a few times!
The good - this has prevented destruction. I mean no case is 100% foolproof to a 2yr old. The child can still step on the screen or throw the tablet into something and cause a screen-crack. But for the most part this will prevent 95% of all accidents, and for that I am grateful.
The not so good - Kids arms are little. And when my child is holding the tablet, it's 4 inches from his face. This case doesn't come with a stand or pillow to stand it up further away. Maybe it's not a huge deal. Some articles say it doesn't matter, some say they do. All I know is if my child needs glasses by age 3, I will wish I got a case that didn't need to be held so close to the eyes.
Very durable case, excellent for when the tablet is for a child under the age of 10. It's a great case to protect the tablet when a small child drops it or throws it but since its made of that 'nerf foam' material, its very easy for a young child to chew on it & chew pieces of the foam off which is exactly what my 3 yr old is doing & I know for a fact many, many kids chew on inanimate objects. Four stars bc this case does NOT stand up to chewing!
