Headset Recommendations:

For young kids we recommend these headsets with microphones:

http://www.califone.com/products/2800-xx.php
These are the models we recommend:
Califone 2800 RDT
Califone 2800 BLT
Califone 2800 YLT
These models have straight jacks that fit the iPad cases, and they fit younger heads better.
