My name is Laura Graham and I live in Nashville, TN. I am a mom to a very handsome and ifriendly 2 year old who has inspired me to design lots of kid/family friendly iPad and iphone accessories. I have been working on the ikid case design for a year. It has been a VERY long process to get the design JUSt right.

I started with a design more like this: 

Original iKid Design

Using an injection mould like this :

After many months of refining the design and the materials to make sure the ipad would have a snug fit, but still be easy for the parent to insert and remove. I also had some quality issues with my factory in Shehzen and moved to an American plastics factory. They spent a few months trying to work out a design and figure out the right material combo, with no luck and several wasted months and money for the mould.

So.. I started fresh with  a new Engineer based in California and a new factory in another part of China that I hired from elance.com We have worked really well together over the last few months changing the design to make sure it would fit the ipad 3 and to make adjustments based on recommendations from customers. I especially wanted this case to work well with special needs children who have many adapters that connect to the ipad , and needed easy port access.

So.. currently I have a perfect design,and have already paid for the mould and it is finished.. and ready for production, BUT I need money to fund that production and the shipment from China. Shipping alone will be at least $1100.00  Because  I have spent the last year working on this project, the result will be a quick delivery IF we can make the funding goal! Once I reach funding I can start immediate production which will take about 45 days since I only have 1 mould and then 7-45 days for shipping depending on if we use air or sea freight.

Please back this project and help bring the ikid to life! It will be the best protective case and family friendly ipad accessory you own! 

** Please add $5 to your pledge for shipping domestic and $9 for international shipping ! *** Thanks!
