[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - PCWorld and The New York Times both called the iPad the "Toy of the Year." With the introduction of iPad 2, many iPads are falling into the hands of children. But watching a child play with an iPad can be as nerve wracking as it is wondrous. It's a frustration many tech-loving parents share - kids love iPads, but they're expensive and slippery. That's why KEM Ventures, Inc., created Big Grips Frame, the iPad case for kids.
Constructed of durable, lightweight foam, Big Grips Frame is a big, soft protective case for iPad that is easy to grab, comfortable to hold and very grip-able. Finally, parents can relax when the kids grab the iPad!
"We set out to create a case that not only protects the iPad, but also brings a smile to your face," said Kirk Mills, founder and President of KEM Ventures, Inc. "Judging by the kids we've seen using Big Grips Frame, I think we succeeded. For parents, it's peace of mind. Big Grips Frame just feels good, like there's nothing to worry about - that's how we came up with the motto 'Grab More. Worry less.'"
Big Grips Frame mounts snugly into Big Grips Stand in portrait or landscape orientation for watching movies, working at a desk, or surfing on the couch. Made from the same material as Big Grips Frame, Big Grips Stand is sturdy and stable - even on soft or uneven surfaces.
"It's definitely a unique design, especially with Big Grips Stand," Mills said. "There's nothing quite like it. We've heard people describe it as 'groovy' and 'retro,' even 'goofy.' We had a feeling kids would like Big Grips, but what caught us by surprise is how much parents like it - we're thrilled with the response."
Pricing and Availability:
Big Grips Frame and Big Grips Stand are available separately for $34.95 (USD) and $24.95 or as a matching set for $49.95. They come in four kid-friendly colors: Fresh Green, Electric Blue, Carnation Pink and Steel Grey. Pictures and more information, including where to purchase Big Grips, are available online.
