Big Group & Family-Friendly iPad Accessories

Is bigger always better? Not necessarily, but when it comes to using the iPad in a family or group setting, it can be (like the Jonas Damon's retro-TV case design above). Here are three "big" accessories that make the iPad more group-friendly by doing things like amplifying the speakers or making the iPad kid-friendly.

Amplifiear: As an owner of the new iPad, I've been guilty of turning the volume up all the way in order for everyone around me to hear when we're streaming video or music. The Amplifiear is a Kickstarter solution to this problem that doesn't drain the iPad's battery like Bluetooth speakers would. The accessory simply clips onto the corner of the iPad to amplify the sound coming out from the speakers.

We also like the Mickey Mouse ear-like design. It will be available in six colors, so you can go for white or black for a more sleek look or one of the brighter shades to add some fun color.

Big Big Cursor: As much as we love the iPad because of its excellent touch screen, certain activities, especially games, would be a bit easier with a cursor or stylus. That's where the Big Big Cursor comes in. You can choose from an arrow or pointer. Although it's a bit of a novel accessory, it can also help reduce the never-ending smudges on the screen.

Big Grips Frame: The Big Grips Frame is highly rated when it comes to using the iPad with kids and making sure the device doesn't suffer any mishaps. With all the great apps now available for parents and kids to interact with together on the iPad, we're seeing it being used by many families. To make the device easier to hold and protect it from drops, the Big Grips Frame is a great protective cover that comes in three fun colors.
