NY-based accessory manufacturer CTA has announced a licensing partnership that sees them distributing an extremely cool lineup of accessories to be used by your kids with your iPad. The products feature everybody’s favorite characters from SpongeBob SquarePants™, Dora the Explorer™ and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ and are all designed “for keeping the iPad protected and safe, while kids enjoy valuable applications and games on it.”
The new accessories include an Inflatable Play Cube, Inflatable Sports Car and a Universal Activity Tray.
Availabe in SpongeBob SquarePants™ and Dora the Explorer™ themes, the Inflatable Play Cube “holds the iPad under a protective case on its recessed and padded side.” To add an element of flexibility, this accessory can be used upright as a viewing table, or on its side like a TV.
Perhaps most unique is the Inflatable Sports Car, avaiable in SpongeBob SquarePants™, Dora the Explorer™ and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ themes. The car itself has “a special steering wheel to mount the iPad for kids to enjoy racing games.”
Finally, the Universal Activity Tray is my favorite of the accessories, making if much safer to hand your iPad over to younger babies and toddlers. “Easily be attached to high chairs, car seats, strollers, or [the Activity Tray can] just be placed on the floor or tabletop with the included foldable stand.” The best feature of this accessory is that it “is completely sealed and protected from spills or dirty hands.”
Steve Stern, VP of Sales at CTA Digital, is proud of the company’s new products, explaining that: “There is no doubt about the value the iPad provides to kids, from an educational and entertainment standpoint. We’re gratified to be able to make that process more comfortable for parents, and hopefully more enjoyable for kids.”
Any parent will appreciate the protective nature of these accessories while remaining colorful and whimsical. Prices are not yet known but they are all expected to ship this year prior to the holiday season.
