Review: Pauls Boutique iPad Mini Case

Thursday, June 05, 2014
I was very kindly sent this iPad mini case to review from Venom Communications but the brand is Paul's Boutique. I have only had a couple of cases for my iPad mini, a super cheap one and the Kujali one (which is amazing!). However, I wanted to try one that was a bit more summery and bright and oh boy did I get it!
I have the *Paul's Boutique iPad Mini Case by Venom Communications (£29.99). Firstly, can we have a moments silence for this case and packaging, it is so luminous and colourful, I love it! The presentation/packaging of the case is fantastic, I think it would make a lovely gift - and delivery was very very quick. I love the bright pink and metallic blue fake croc skin effect on the straps, I think it looks amazing especially on the patent shiny black background of the case itself. I adore the look of the case, it is perfect for summer! The case is shiny so I think it would be easy to wipe clean and it is thin/small so it would be great for travelling and keeping in your bag. 

The case holds my iPad mini in place with two elasticated straps on each corner which hold it in place really really well, I don't think my iPad mini will be falling out of it ever! The only problem with the straps/fastening is that the straps on the top right corner press the volume buttons downs which isn't great so I had to keep the straps off that corner and behind my iPad which then obstructed the camera view slightly - again this isn't great but I can work with it like this. Although even with only three corners held down, my iPad mini was so secure in the case, it doesn't budge! But when typing the straps on the bottom two corner do block the keyboard slightly but you can still type. 

There is a hole in the back of the case for the camera which is great so you don't have to take your iPad mini out of the case to take a photo. The lining inside is super soft so it won't damage the screen in any way and it is bright red - I love the bright, almost neon colours of this case. The case holds the iPad mini vertically so you cannot strand it horizontally as I can with my Kujali case.

Overall, I adore the packaging, presentation and the almost neon colours of this case - it looks perfect for summer! The hole for the camera is great along with the super soft interior and wipe clean case surface. The case holds my iPad mini so securely, I don't have to worry about it at all. However the straps are not ideal as they push down the volume buttons and obscure the camera view and keyboard slightly - if the iPad was held in by a plastic frame and the case could stand horizontally on a table then it would be just perfect! ★★★☆☆, 3.5 out of 5 stars from me. 

Have you tried this iPad mini case? What do you think of the design?

  3. So cool! Love it ♡
    just followed your lovely blog on gfc btw :)

  4. I love the colours of this case - the style has just the right amount of sass to it.
    It's too bad the straps are a bit fussy though. I think in the end, the design of the straps would annoy me.

  5. This design is amazing!! I love your choice. So cool!

  6. Lovely design. Bit sad that the straps go over the volume. x
