fatframe story

fatframe was born
out of necessity…

Creator Alison Nicolson witnessed first hand the benefits that tablet technology afforded her two kids who both have additional support needs. “We found that many of the apps, games and videos available on the iPad unlocked communication channels and ability within our children that we had not seen before and for the first time gave our nonverbal son a voice. We were of course extremely thankful for this however…

The downside was that unfortunately our children didn’t appreciate the fragility of the iPad, (what pre-schooler does?). They couldn’t just throw it on the floor, or down the stairs when they’d finished with it!

After two damaged screens and two expensive replacements plus a considerable amount of research into kid friendly iPad cases (we failed to find anything that ticked all the boxes), we decided to create our own robust, bouncy iPad case!
