Sure, we at Pure Mobile love a sleek and professional looking mobile accessory. But the kid in us likes fun and colorful accessories even more. And this week, we're rounding up 5 of the coolest iPhone 5 cases with a whimsical touch that will appeal to your inner child.
Nut just because you have a little fun with an iPhone accessory doesn't mean you can't also get a quality carrying case. And the three labels that made our "young at heart" list include top-rated mobile accessories makers Griffin, PureGear and iLuv. Read on for our top 5 picks:
5: iLuv Snoopy Holiday iPhone 5 Case
Who doesn't love Peanuts? And who doesn't love snowboarding? This Snoopy-themed iPhone 5 case from iLuv brings the two together in a playful iPhone 5 case with durable, hardshell construction.
Great for Snoopy Fans young and old alike, you'll get iLuv's quality with the nostalgia and whimsy of the world's favorite cartoon beagle.
4 & 3: Griffin Kazoo Animal Shaped iPhone 5 Cases
A couple of months back, we ran across a photo of Sasha Obama at the Presidential Inauguration. And as much as we wanted to pay attention to the president, we couldn't help noticing Sasha's funky Turtle iPod case.
As it turns out, that carrying case was part of a larger line of animal-themed Apple accessories from Griffin. The Kazoo collection from Griffin includes iPhone 5 cases in funky animal shapes, and their monkey and elephant iPhone 5 cases are just too adorable not to make our list of fun, kid-worthy iPhone accessories.
Meanwhile, their shock-absorbing silicone construction should offer a good level of protection from bumps and drops.
2 & 1: PureGear Retro Gamer iPhone 5 Cases
Pretty new to the market, PureGear recently introduced their Retro Gamer line fo iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 cases.
These take the term "playful" pretty literally, as the entire look and design of accessories like the Groovy Gamer and Amazing Gamer iPhone 5 cases centers around the fact that you can actually play with them.
With ball games like mazes built right into the back, these PureGear iPhone 5 cases also boast bright and funky color combos, as well asPureGear's signature tough construction.
Sometimes, it's good to act like a kid again, and that's something that these accessories seem to celebrate. Of course, you could always go for a black leather carrying case or a practical folio. But we'd wager that your inner child would much prefer one of our top 5 fun and cool iPhone 5 cases for the young and the young at heart.
