Trapper Keeper returns from the 70s and 80s as a tablet case

Kensington has bought the rights from Mead to sell a series of universal tablet cases that have the distinctive Trapper Keeper design that was popular for school folders in the 1970s and 80s.

The cases are designed to hold most 8-inch and 10-inch tablets, and while in terms of construction and features they are pretty basic the main attraction are the colorful Trapper Keeper designs that are available. Yes, now you can make your tablet look like it came from the era that also bought us MTV, big heavy metal hair and "Square Pegs."

Kensington is selling the 8-inch Trapper Kepper tablet case in a red design for $24.99 while the larger 10-inch version is available in blue for $29.99. However, the bad news is that both cases won't actually start shipping to customers until sometime in September, which means that you may have to wait until after school starts to encase your Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet inside a Trapper Keeper.

How do you feel about this effort by Kensington to go after folks who lived in the 70s and 80s with these Trapper Keeper tablet cases?
