Mine have outgrown that stage but it's a great idea. My son asked for an iPad for his eighth birthday...8! I'm still on the fence about whether or not to get one. One thing is certain if I do that thing will be in an otterbox!

this Otterbox Case out. The only other thing I would add is figure out a way to hook up headphones to it. It will keep you less distracted while you drive and there is nothing like hearing the laughter of your kids coming from the back seat! I had three toddlers at once. Cartoons are priceless on long trips!

Ok, I'll put my reply a bit nicer seeing it's been deleted twice.
I work for the motorways agency and I've seen the results of hanging screens on the back of headrests.
Believe me, a seven year old girls face buried into it after an accident is not a nice sight. "luckily" she didn't survive to see it in a mirror.
It's a stupid idea but if you want to risk your kids life nothing I say will change your mind.

You'd be surprised at some of the things we see, I've seen a satnav mount (the ones with a ball on) embedded in an eye socket when an old bloke got rear ended. He was stationary apparently and not to blame in any way. The mount was on his windscreen directly infront of him

I do not do what you do for a living but I do drive a LOT in my job so I have see some very violent wrecks. I am also in Construction, so I have seen some horrific accidents! (I will NOT go into detail. Let's just say gruesome). But they were all accidents. I agree that with smart precautions, accidents can be lessened...sometimes. With small children you can be too cautious either.
I know in my situation, we are fortunate enough to have a vehicle that has the drop down screen from the overhead for the DVD player. I personally think that this is the greatest invention put in a car since. Again just MVHO.

In the case of survival, which would be better... Hitting a leather/fabric foam packed surface or faceplanting a glass screen?

We all see what you're trying to get at here chuggy, but honestly almost anything with weight, glass, or any other dangerous material can be a dangerous thing in a car. Yet a large multitude of people drive with them in their car.
Also a child being able to hit the back of a headrest is amazing. Unless she wasn't wearing her seatbelt.
