We bought a generic Otterbox type one for $30 at a mall kiosk. I don't know how well it will work, but it seemed pretty sturdy.

We bought our 7 year old a Garmin Survivor case. He's had it for 9 months now and it's awesome!

We got an Otterbox on Amazon for $25.

There is nothing better than an Otterbox....they are intended for people that are rough with their electronics.

It was recommended to me to get an otterbox case for my Ipod touch. I didn't but it's my ipod and I'm careful with my stuff I do have a case on it.

Otterbox - I have one and I can't tell you how many times my 4-year-old has dropped it and it is still in perfect shape.

Otterbox good, but drop in water and your touch is junk.

Lifeproof better, impact resistant and water proof.

We have otterbox cases for our Iphones and Ipod touchs. There cases are great my girls have dropped it on a cement sidewalk and it didn't break. I bought ours on Amazon there were significantly cheaper.

My 10 year old son had an Otterbox and in 1 year, it was in 4 pieces. We then bought a Defender for I think $39.00 and it's been 7 month- so far so good.
