A LEGO iPad Mini case giveaway! Ends 01/08/15

We have just got back from our first-ever family holiday abroad this summer, and we searched high and low for ways to keep the kids busy. If keeping them occupied in the car isn’t hard enough, we were extra nervous about how they would react to a long wait in the airport.

Now there’s nothing I love more than giving something back to my readers, and to help those of you in the same dilemma as me, today I am offering you the chance to win a LEGO Builder iPad Mini case*! Because let’s face it, as happy as I am to let the kids use the iPad, sometimes it’s nice to encourage a little time away from the screen, and this product lets you have your cake and eat it.

The case itself will fit the iPad Mini (1 & 2) and the iPad Mini 3, and the back features a work board that is perfect for building LEGO structures on a stable surface when you’re out and about.

Plus, when you consider that around 5-10% of LEGO’s sales are for adults, you can’t deny that you’re not tempted to get one for some sneaky play therapy!

The iPad case is courtesy of Cash Generator, a high-street retailer who sells second hand iPads at affordable prices.

So how do you get your hands on this iPad case? It couldn’t be simpler: just leave a comment below telling me where you would use the LEGO Builder iPad case this summer and the best reply wins!

The winner will be selected from all entries received within 3 days of the giveaway closing – good luck!
