I came across this wonderful discovery while I was browsing through the Internet one day (was looking for iPad apps to try out with Ben) and when I saw BubCap Home Button Covers, I just went “Wow! What a genius! I’ve gotta try that!”
And so here we are, after a few email exchanges with the wonderful people at Bubcap who generously offered to send me their products to try out!
Description from the product page:
“BubCap home button covers are just rigid enough to deter toddlers from pressing the home button, yet they are flexible enough that adults can activate the home button with a firm press. It’s a similar concept to many child-proof caps for medicine bottles.
BubCap is our less rigid model, which is great for most toddlers, particularly toddlers using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch for the first time.
BubCap Ultra is more difficult to press through, and is better suited to stronger toddlers or youngsters who have a stubborn desire to press the home button. It is also preferred more often on the iPad (due to the iPad’s shallower home button activation depth).“
Picture above: The letter that came with the BubCap for my review.
Pictured above: 4 BubCaps provided for my review.
And pictured below is my product tester, Mr. Benjamin. He’s VERY experienced in pressing the Home button on my iPad, so much that it annoys me as I had to navigate back to the app that was running earlier:
Now in case you are wondering how do we apply the BubCap to the iPad… look at the pictures below…
* Ensure the Home button is clean & dry. Gently peel the BubCap off… * Carefully align the BubCap on top of the Home button. Gently press on the BubCap for about 10 seconds.
I love this product! It really works and deters my toddler from happily pressing the Home button and ending the app which is running on my iPad!
It takes a little bit of getting used to the new layer on top of the Home button but after seeing how difficult it is now for your toddler to press the Home button, I’m glad I got the chance to try out this awesome product!
You can see the 2 videos below to confirm with your own eyes how my toddler likes to press the Home button and then see his reactions after I stick on a BubCap!
