Kids are naturally drawn to mobile technology, but they aren’t necessarily the best stewards of these delicate devices. The Apple(R) iPad(R) has become ubiquitous in the home for recipes, education, entertainment and myriad other family-friendly uses. The OtterBox(R) Defender Series(R) recently passed the test for protection, receiving the Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA) Winner’s Seal of Approval.

The Defender Series for iPad provides protection that parents can trust. The multi-layer case is constructed with a sturdy plastic shell that snaps snugly around the tablet and boasts a built-in screen protector that doesn’t inhibit touch sensitivity. An exterior synthetic rubber slipcover provides additional protection from the inevitable drops and shocks that come with routine family life and the case is completed with a screen shield that snaps over the front of the device when not in use and doubles as a media-viewing stand.*

“It is so easy to damage your gadget from simple everyday things and carelessness,” commented one PTPA tester. “Keeping your device in an OtterBox can give you peace of mind if you decide to let your little one play that game he has been begging to play for weeks. The stand feature with the case is very useful to stand up the iPad if you don’t want to hold it or lay it down.”

PTPA Media(TM) has North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with more than 65,000 parents and was rated the Most Trusted Seal by over 22,000 parents across North America. Independent parent volunteers evaluate products in their own homes to ensure that PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations.

“At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and web sites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”

OtterBox Defender Series protection is available now for a variety of Apple devices, including the new iPhone(R) 5s, iPhone 5c and iPad mini with Retina display. For more information, visit
