A Review of the Woogie 2

By Craftycrunchymama
A Review of the Woogie 2You might remember that we bought Baby J an iPod Touch a while back. When we bought the iPod, we also bought a plush case for it: the Woogie 2. We decided on the plush case (rather than this harder case) because it was easier to get the device in and out. That kind of backfired on us because it was also easy for our six month old to get out.
Positive Features of the Woogie 2
  • Plush case protects iPod or iPhone from damage when dropped
  • Plastic screen cover protects device from getting dirty
  • Can be used with headphones
  • Five legged design makes the device easy to prop up like a mini TV 
  • Downloadable app that makes the iPod have an interactive face. I could see this being fun for older children (heck, it was fun for me!).
 Negative Features of the Woogie 2
  • The only negative thing I have to say about the Woogie 2 is that it is extremely easy for my son to get his iPod touch out of the case. When he does this, he is able to push buttons and turn the device off, which makes for a very frustrated Mommy (we only use the iPod in the car, so I can't turn it back on without pulling over).

My Overall Impression
I'm really happy with my purchase of the Woogie 2. It does a great job of keeping the device safe when Baby J flings it across the car. It is fairly easy to switch apps (mostly videos in our case) while the device is still in the Woogie. I can't always navigate with ease, but most of the time taking the iPod out is not necessary. I love how Baby J can just set it on his lap and it is propped up like a little TV. We also use this case with Daddy J's HTC Incredible 2 and it works great! The only complaint I have about it is that it is so easy for a child to remove the device. This is why I added snaps to mine (check my next post for a tutorial).
(The website does recommend this item for children three years and older, but I think it is really useful for younger children as well.)

Do you have a Woogie or other children's iPod case? Do you like it? I would love to hear!
