Great case for my 3 year olds leappad 2. He always uses his leappad with the case on it as its easier for him to hold, he tried it without it and it was too slippery for him and he kept dropping it. We have only used it around the car headrest for him to watch his videos a few times because he prefers to hold it. The straps are very useful though, we use it to attach the leappad to his carseat harness so he cant drop it whilst im driving and we also attach it to the shopping trolley. We dont keep the cartridges in the back pockets because they fell out a few times and I think they would get damaged because he bangs it down on the floor sometimes when playing.
