Looking for rubber bumper case

A friend has a rubber bumper case for her iPhone. Basically, if her kids drop it, it will just bounce. (Unless, for example, it gets dropped so the screen hits a table leg corner but ...) And yes, I've dropped my Kobo Glo a few times now so the Glo no longer glows. <sigh>

I'm looking for such a case for the Kobo Glo but don't see any such. I don't want a case with a lid or a neoprene zipper bag I have to unzip. I want something that is unobtrusive and light weight.

I think you're(we're) out of luck. I suspect the nature of the screen probably makes such cases worth less than we'd hope. Is it just the light button that's damaged or have you jarred something loose internally? Good luck.

Perhaps, if you can't find a rubber bumper case (I've not seen one either), a case with a wrist strap might be useful?

A wrist strap isn't going to work for me because I know I'd never use it.

One of those lanyards that they use for those cards at the Casino? I wonder if gumdrop makes a case such as your requesting. Have not seen anything out there. Good luck I hope you find it... its hard to kid proof our adult toys when we are the "kid" we are proofing it from. (been there done that)

regards

According to Amazon, Gumdrop does not. Phew, pricey little bits of silicon/plastics... Somebody is out to make a killing.
