We had such a great time doing #minimadness with all of you that The iMums decided we wanted to “Go Mini” this month.
When Apple brought out the iPad they revolutionized the tablet industry and they have done it again with The iPad Mini. It retains all the advantages of the iPad- its great catalog of apps, ease of use and Apple style, but does it in a smaller, lighter, easier to carry package. It is a great choice for children, as it’s size and weight make it easier for them to handle, but many adults prefer it too. It’s really nice having all the capability of an iPad but being able to slip in into your handbag (purse) and bring it anywhere. This prize package, which totals to over $400, includes all you need to get started:-
A new Apple iPad mini 16GB WiFi;
A Cygnett Enigma iPad mini case;
An iTunes gift card to kickstart your app library.

The Australian iMum Amanda is a married mother of three young boys from North Queensland and has a background in Business Administration and Information Technology. An Apple enthusiast since 2005, Amanda was donned the nickname ‘The iMum’ due to her growing addiction to their products and her many, many apps.

Mary is the British iMum!
Mary is originally from England but now lives in California with her husband and three children, a 9 year old boy and 5 year old boy/girl twins. Mary and her family love cub scouts, camping, hiking, skiing and playing with their iPads. Mary has an Apple only household which includes Macs, iPads, iPod touch and Mary’s personal favorite the iPad Mini. The iPad is also used for therapy for Mary’s daughter’s Apraxia (speech disorder).
Grace is the Singaporean iMum!
Grace is a mother of four children aged from 6 to 18 years old and has experience in the field of adult learning and early childhood education. Since discovering the effectiveness of the iPad as a teaching tool, she has gathered thousands of apps and is most excited to share good app finds.
