Poetic Kid Series case - A great choice for young Nexus 7 2013 users
I bought this Kid Series case from Poetic to give to my 5-year old niece, but I thought I would give it a test drive first! I have the yellow and green version, but the case comes in more color options. What follows is my review of this unique addition to the field of available Nexus 7 2013 cases.
This case is made up of a soft dense rubber known as EVA foam. For its size, the case is remarkably light. This is a malleable yet strong material. There is some bend to the case, but it retains its shape well. This material immediately signals that it is meant for kids. After seeing the many generic silicone “kid-friendly” cases on the market, I was impressed by the out-of-the-box design on this Poetic case. This case is unmistakably intended for a younger audiences. The bright, bold colors. The humongous soft molding. It is designed with a Fisher-Price aesthetic in mind, and it would fit right into a children’s playroom.
Speaking of play, I thought the appropriate app to try out my new case with was Real Racing 3. Making turns in the game while using this case is a joy. For any games to utilize the accelerometer, the Kid Series will add an extra level of immersion into gameplay. With the extended handles, it becomes easier to make minute adjustments while steering, making racing game much more fun and playable.
The handles come with these grip indentations, and given the material, it will not slip out of your hands. There are also markings on the bottom of the case that reduces the chances of the case sliding off a table. Finally, there are the two folding handles on the top and bottom of the cases. These handles double as the stand: fold the bottom one back and you have a sturdy stand for watching movies, or lay down the case with the top handle folded back for a comfortable typing position. With the bulk inherent in this case, the stand options are much more stable in comparison to flimsier cover stands. Finally, as I saw another forum poster suggest, you may fold both handles towards the screen to create a protective buffer should the tablet be dropped.
The charging and headphone ports are still accessible, but they are recessed deeper due to the thick nature of the case. In case you were wondering, the Nexus will not charge wirelessly with this case on. Not a surprise, but it’s not much of an issue is very easy to pop your
Given its size and aim towards kids, the Kid’s Series case is more of an attachment than an actual case. You won’t be throwing this thing in a backpack anytime soon. But it you trust a child enough with a $200+ tablet, having on the Kids Series will help keep your mind at ease. I bought this from Amazon for a real good price. It remains to be seen how exactly my niece will take to this case, but Poetic’s Kid Series case has already delighted the big kid in me.
