Now that you’ve got your shiny new Nintendo Switch from ThinkGeek, sans fingerprints, smudges, and other imperfections, you probably want to make sure it stays pristine. You’ll first want to make sure you’re careful putting it in and taking out of its dock, but you’ll also want to get a case that’ll keep it safe. Sure, you could just throw any old game character sleeve on it and call it a day, but why not opt for something that protects? Here are some of your best options so you can keep your Switch just as awesome-looking as when you took it out of the box.

Big Ben Polycarbonate Case
We saw a bunch of cool Switch accessories from UK manufacturer Big Ben Interactive at E3 this year, from chargers to game card cases to wheel controllers to a nifty little speaker that slots on like Joy-Con. However, one of the coolest cases we saw was a case that’s barely even visible. This tough polycarbonate case snaps onto your tablet to protect it from falls without blocking the screens, control, and Joy-Con colors. Price conversion notwithstanding, you should be able to pick it up for around $15.
