I am a firm believer that kids should learn to swim from an early age as it is a vital life skill to have.
Both Isaac and Eliza are confident swimmers with Isaac recently completing an 1800m distance swim in just 60 minutes and Eliza has just earned her 400m badge and her level 4 swimming certificate.
Sebastian has been having swimming lessons with Turtle Tots since he was a couple of months old and has a good grasp of water safety, but can only swim a short distance unaided so when we are on holiday I like him to have an extra buoyancy aid so we feel more relaxed in the pool.
Zoggs asked me to try out their Water Wing Vest which provides fixed buoyancy and encourages him to maintain a natural swimming position which encourages him to use his arms and legs to move around in the water just like he has been taught in his lessons.
The Water Wing Vest features a neoprene body and super soft sleeves with foam floats strategically sewn into the arms and shoulders to provide exceptional buoyancy and ease of movement.
The vest features a zip which does up at the back and a tab to hold it in place so it remains secure and stops little ones from removing the vest in the pool. The sleeves help to stop the jacket from riding up around the neck, so they can build their swim confidence in comfort.
Sebastian loved using his water wings and exclaimed that they made him look like Mr Incredible with muscles when he put it on. He was able to practice his ‘paddles’ and ‘kicks’ just like in his swimming lessons whilst we supervised.
The real benefit of him wearing his water wings was that he could play freely with Isaac and Eliza in the pool, without us having to supervise too closely.
The boys water wings come in a deep sea print on the arms and shark print on the front and can be coordinated with sharky print shorts the girls has a cute mermaid print on the arms and mermaid print on the front which can be worn over a swimming costume.
The water wing vests are available from Zoggs.com in ages 2-3 or 4-5 at a RRP of £23.99 and Sebastians sharky shorts are RRP £14.
