Keep your iPad safe and protected

The SuperShell is a popular iPad case for families due to the fact that it only weighs nine ounces.

The foam material surrounding the edges and high-impact corners protects it against drops and dings while the dimpled texture and ridges allow for a better grip, which is perfect for little hands.

Price: $35


  • Ultra-protective, closed-cell foam absorbs shock if dropped.
  • Wraps around all iPad borders.
  • Opening for rear-facing camera and speaker.
  • Access to all ports and buttons.
