Bought this case for my daughter at Christmas, to protect her new Leappad. The zip is very stiff, and hard to manipulate, especially for very small fingers. It came apart within 3 days of being used for the first time. Poor design, as the zip is supposed to wrap right around the case and can't handle the sharp turns round the corners of the case. Also, the strap to hold the case is attached to the zip, and thus puts extra strain on the closure. I also think poor quality materials are partly to blame. The case now sits in her room so she can put the game inside when finished, but basically is not much use without the zip. Would not recommend at all.
