Brand new from Speedo in 2013, the Speedo Dive Jacks are a fun and creative way to teach kids invaluable diving and retrieving skills.
Ideal Learning Tool
One of the most important, yet challenging, water skills to teach a child is to feel comfortable putting their entire body underwater. And while some children get a hang of it right away, others need a little extra coercing in the water. This is where the Speedo Dive Jacks come into play. Shaped like traditional dry land jacks, the easy-to-see, easy-to-grasp pool toys make diving below the surface a real joy! Use them on shallow steps to help ease a nervous child into the water. Or, for more advanced swimmers, toss them in the deep end and see who can race the fastest to retrieve the bright toys. They can be used in any number of ways to help children feel more comfortable and confident in the water. If your child is ready for the next pool toy level, pick up a set of Zoggs Clam Dive and Hunt Kids Water Game. This fun and interactive pool game features clam shells with matching symbols. When a child retrieves two matching pairs, they win! Itís ideal for slightly stronger swimmers and will help your child feel comfortable underwater for longer periods of time.
Designed For Little Swimmers
The Dive Jacks are perfect for summer time splashes in the backyard and can be a fun teaching tool for winter swim lessons. They are brightly colored and highly visible in any depth pool. Made from soft, yet durable, silicone, the Jacks are soft on the hands and feet (in case anyone decides to jump or walk over them). Their 4-prong design is easy to grasp with small hands. And because they can help kids build more confidence in the water without them ever knowing, they are perfect to have around if youíre teaching your little one to swim.
Last, but certainly not least, the Dive Jacks allow children to get creative with their pool time fun. String the diving toys together to create a long, easier-to-grasp chain. Or, see how many your child can loop together while underwater. Kids love the Speedo Dive Jacks because they allow the mini swimmers to come up with fun and creative games while in the water. In order for your child to stay underwater comfortably for as long as they would like, pair a game of Dive Jacks with Aqua Sphere Moby Kid Swim Goggles. They are specially designed to fit a childís smaller face frame and even feature an easy-adjust buckle and complete UVA protection.
The AquaGear Opinion
Itís always fun to get the AquaGear mini-testers involved in a product run through. The kid swimmers really loved the ultra bright colors and soft, flexible material. And the supervising adults enjoyed that no one would get hurt walking on or jumping on the toys. But the Jacks are more than just a one-dimensional diving toy. The kids enjoyed constructing designs, chains, and even making up their own diving games using the toys. And, best of all, the Dive Jacks were great at encouraging children to comfortably put their faces into the water.
The Bottom Line
The Speedo Dive Jacks will help entertain your kids in the pool, all the while teaching them invaluable confidence and diving skills.
