Kindle Fire HD - best PROTECTIVE case

Hi everyone - I know I have seen lots of posts about tablets on here...and even some about cases. What I need to know is does anyone have any recommendations for a PROTECTIVE case for the Kindle Fire HD? My oldest son has asked for one for Christmas and I want to make sure I get a really safe case for it. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Fintie and love it. I really like that it has a built in stand.

Amazon - Fintie Slim fit

Pretty colors and a great price too! Thanks! Are they helpful as far as keeping it safe?

I'm looking at the Oberon Design cases. Does anyone know how secure these are when in the standing position?

Kindle Fire HD 8.9

I received the above named Kindle for Christmas and am finding that the cases are very limited for it It seems that even on the Amazon site - there aren't many to choose from, and I can't find many skins for it either. Could it be because it is "too new" of a product ? I refuse to take it out of the house or even carry it in my purse until it's protected with a cover. Anyone ???

I use a case with a stand and keyboard on my Android tablet, but for my readers I prefer skins as well. The one I got for my 7 year olds Kindle Fire is the GumDrop one. It's pretty darn tough I must say.

They're kind of pricey, but I don't regret the purchase.

Here is a link to the Amazon listing

and a video of the case if you are interested.

DS got a Fire and we got a GumDrop. I love it and don't worry a bit about the Kindle. He's dropped it a few times and so far so good (knocking on wood!)
