Trapper Keeper Comeback

Remember Mead© Trapper Keepers? Tech protection company Kensington is partnering with Mead© for a major Trapper Keeper comeback.

Blue Trapper Keeper tablet case

In one of the more brilliant ideas to prey upon our nostalgia, the Trapper Keeper is returning to back-to-school shelves in a form far more applicable to our present-day lives as tablet cases. Here’s the even better news... They are bringing back some of the traditional Trapper Keeper designs that you might have stashed in your locker 30 years ago.

Case-maker Kensington is partnering with Mead© for the Trapper Keeper relaunch, so in addition to the gloriously '80s graphics, there is also a composition-style notebook, as well as a version of the Pee-Chee sketchbook that you might have doodled on in class.

While this is an excellent revival of an iconic '80s brand, we're a little disappointed that they didn't go far enough with the graphics. Who could forget the "Designer Series" launched in 1988 which blasted into our lives with radical computer-generated art that we were proud to carry around?

Maybe those are coming up in a future release. For now, the cases will come in two sizes (7-inch or 10-inch, $25.00 - $30.00) and will fold open into stands so you can watch "The Facts of Life" on your Trapper Keeper. If you’re feeling more analogue these days, Mead© does have versions of its old school Trapper Keeper notebooks for sale as well.
