About Kid's Flotation Devices
Is Timmy ready to swim on his own? Is Bessie going along on her first beach vacation? Get the kids all prepped and ready for whatever summer brings with flotation gear designed just for them.
Keep in mind that no flotation aide of any kind is designed to be a life-saving device. Never leave a child unattended in a flotation belt, swim vest, or other similar swimming aid. Nothing is a substitute for the presence of a strong, adult swimmer.
Kid's flotation aides, like water belts and progressive back floats, are designed with an eye to learning. A kid's flotation belt props up a student in deep water and teaches proper positioning by leaning the child forward toward the surface. A back float, complete with removeable slices of foam, is great for teaching kids invaluable life-saving float skills. Remove foam pieces one-by-one as your child gets the hang of floating on their own.
Not ready for the whole shebang? A simple pool noodle is the perfect, multi-purpose swimming aid. Not only can kids can use it for kicking practice, they can also sit, lay, surf on, or straddle it. Our kid's swim vests make beach and pool days easier on mom and dad, (but are still no substitute for a life jacket and a parent's watchful eye).
