While device manufacturers are determined to release slimmer and sleeker devices, rounded glass corners, reduced bezels and glass bodies, the reality is that mobile devices are more susceptible to shattering and breaking than ever.

Smartphone cases are a necessity, specially for kids who may not be as careful or caring towards their devices. A good smartphone case offers additional all-around protection, it adds substantial grip to otherwise slippery surfaces as well as offer various ways to stand and position smartphones for viewing.

Smartphone cases designed for kids need to offer all the protection and functionality of regular cases but they also have to be appealing, fun and entertaining so kids will want to use them.  Here are some of the ones I like best.
