    5-0 out of 5 stars My son loves it!
    My husband and I went looking for a good baby float and came across this one, we immediately chose it because we both love our adult spring floats.Yes it is true they can put their face in the water but as long as you are there its not a big deal, I mean how else are they going to learn how to hold their breath? I love it and will definitly be using it next year for my son who is 9 months right now!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Read the manufacturers recom age!!!
    According to the manufacturer this toy is for 6 YEARS and up!Fun for OLDER kids!

    1-0 out of 5 stars This Product Needs to Be Recalled!!!!!!!!!!!
    I bought this for my 8 month old, and she almost drowned because she can put her face in the water face down very easily with me being right there!!!The mesh fills with water and it is not safe. She could have also crawled out of it if she wanted to. I know on the product it does give that warning.Please do not buy this product!!! It is very dangerous. I have notified the manufacturer of my worries and concerns, so hopefully they can make it safer for us moms.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Safe way to explore water
    This is a great floatation device that allows baby to explore water without tipping over.The mesh seperating the tubes is an ideal location for babies toys.Love it!!!
    Also, helpful to know that I use it on my 8 month old son.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice pool float...
    We just went to the beach with our son and bought this at Wal-greens for the same price.I had read the reviews on here and decided that I wanted to try it.Our son is almost 7 months old so I can not say how it would do for a younger baby.The age range listed does not recommend it for a younger baby either.Our son enjoyed this float and it was nice to be able to hold onto it and float with him.It does put the baby more into the water than the typical inflatable baby float so you want to pay close attention to your baby of course. Keep in mind what other reviewers have said about the baby's ability to lean forward in this float.My son was able to get his face into the water at times but this float is recommended for an older baby and would give you the ability to get several months of use out of it. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Maybe I'm just paranoid
    Maybe I'm just paranoid but the section of the float where the baby sits holds less air than the adult section.I wouldn't dare let go, but it seemed like my baby started to sink & possibly MIGHT tip if I didn't hold the adult side down.I have to admit though, my 17 pound 3-1/2 month old loves it.He can sit up with little support and goes to town kicking.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Awesome product!
    The first time I used the "Baby and Me Float" I was comforted by the proximity of my child.I actually cuddled him the first 15-minutes, or so.Baby sits a little deeper in this float than the cheap ones drug stores carry, so that gave me peace of mind.The float requires 100% adult interaction, as baby could tip it over if left unattended.We usually swim as a family, so either my husband, or I would carry our son into the water, and place him in the float, while the other parent slipped into the ring.If you're considering using this float without assistance from another adult, I recommend leaving the float on the deck before entering the water.This way you're free to carry your baby into the water without distractions.

    Both my husband and I were comfortable using the float.That's saying a lot!My husband is 6'7" tall and weighs 240 pounds, while I'm only 5'3" tall and weigh....What?If you expected me to divulge my weight on a product review, you're crazy!Anyhow, the float accommodates a variety of shapes, sizes, and weights.Aqua Leisure does not provide a weight capacity for this product, which I find unusual, but considering it's a floatation device and water weight is drastically different than actual weight, it might be discretionary.The float is recommended for babies 6-months to 2-years.That's probably an accurate recommendation; however, I wouldn't use age as the determining factor.If your child sits confidently in a highchair, then they're probably strong enough for this float.In addition, the baby seat is rather generous, so it accommodates older, or larger children as well.

    The "Baby and Me Float" is long lasting.We used the float for two summers without leaks, or puncture wounds.Phoenix has a long outdoor season, April through October, so that's equivalent to 6 or 7 months of continual use.I'd say that's an exceptional record for a floatation device.I'm not sure if the float deflates if the toy bar's penetrated, as my son wasn't much of a nibbler at that age.Although if you ask me, the toy bar's useless.The balls don't roll easily, and the rings are difficult to slide.Well, for a 1-year old anyway.

    (...) It truly enhanced our summertime fun, so I'll gladly recommend it.

    Be careful, and happy floating,
    Mary :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun in the water!
    We bought this for my son, who was about 9 months old at the time.He absolutely loved being in the water.I liked the fact that I could be right there, facing him, talking to him, kicking us around the pool.He soon learned to kick, too, and would lean the was he wanted to kick.Sometimes my 5 year old daughter would go in it facing him and I would stay at their side.It was a lot of fun for the family.The only problem was the ring holder.My sister had the same float, and both boys bit a hole in theirs before the summer ended.It was just too tempting a target, right in front of them for periods of time, with those new, interesting, sharp little teeth!Gently encouraging him not to bite didn't work, but I would buy this again if I have another baby simply for the enjoyment on all our parts!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Way to Bond and get a tan!!
    My 3 1/2 mo. old daughter loves it!Supports her 13 lbs great, I hold on to her just a bitbut won't have to for much longer.Highly recommend this for mom's (or dad's aunts, grandma's..) wanting to share the experience of water with their little one.Also, my daughter was barely in the water 5 minutes when she was already reaching for the colored rings, twirling them around.Stimulated her brain a bit - can't beat that.And this was our first time EVER in the water!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Float for Babies and parents
    I bought this float when my daughter was about six months old.She loved it and quickly learned to love the pool, she is three now and is loves to swim (she uses a floating suit).My second daughter was enjoying it until someone stole it from the pool.I think I enjoyed it as much as them as I had quality time in the pool with them.Also, it makes it easier to juggle multiple kids in the pool at one time if one is "attached" to you.Highly recommend this toy.I'm on line now to replace ours! ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed
    The Deluxe Tot Trainer did not seem to work for my son. He is almost two. It didn't seem to keep him afloat and he also would tip face first in the water.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I used this tube with all three of my 1 year olds!!!
    This was the BEST trainer for all three of my infants! Although it says for 2 year olds, I found that after 2 experiences in the tube with me right there holding onto the tube for balance, they EASILY learned how to balance by themselves. Both my sons had May birthdays and my daughter July so she was in the tube before her 1st birthday and it was a Godsend because they learned independence in the water before they could walk. I never left their sight of course, but I never had to hold on to them so tightly. My oldest is 5 and he's been swimming independently since he was 3. My daughter 2 1/2 still wears arm floaties but doesn't need my assistance. The baby is 13 months and his use of the trainer allows me to play with all three children. For those of you who gave up, give it another chance with you right there until they get the hang of it. It's much better than anything else I've found on the market!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best thing ever made
    This is the best thing ever made for young children. We have 5 year old and a three year daughters. I bought the swim trainer when my oldest was two she loved it and we passed it down to my youngest she loves it too. It gives them the freedom to go all over the pool. My 3 yr old just leans foward and kicks where ever she wants to go. Plus you don't have to worry about them falling in the pool with no float because is is attached. My oldest loved it when she was smaller. Last year we moved her to the step 3 swimmer. (the life jacket looking one) She is 5 this summer And I am very happy and proud to say she is swimming on her on. She can dive in the deep end and sliding down the slide. And we don't have one of the little pools ours is 12 ft deep. My three year old will be doing the same by the time she is 5 to. I really think this swimmer is a great start to learn to swim it makes the child learn to lean forward and kick back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very dependable
    My husband and I found this to be very good for our daughter. We have taken her to the ocean and to pools, and each time, while we are right there by her, it keeps her up above the water at all times. of course, you must be very vigilant....but it does what it is supposed to. It is a great way to teach them how to swim. I can not remember if this was the same brand we had for our son, but it looks exactly the same, and he used one for about 5 years......and we never had a problem...of course he went through two different sizes in that time. He loved it and my daughter loves hers.

    1-0 out of 5 stars dangerous swimming gear
    I see that this item gets a pretty good rating overall, I have to disagree. A friend bought this tot trainer for our son (2 1/2 years old at the time) as a gift about a year ago and of course we tried it out straight away. As soon as we let him float a little, without being held, the rubber ring around the waist tipped and caused a very frightened little boy to tip forward, almost face down in the water! needless to say this item has ended up in the garage where it is safely out of use. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beep, Beep, Beep
    My daughter who is 10months is in love with this float. We have been through 2 other floats and this is the one that makes her feel more comfortable. She has room to play and still remain secure in the float. She just loves the horn when it is pressed although when water gets inside the horn it sounds a little funny. All and All I say we have a winner!

    4-0 out of 5 stars We like it enough we're going to give it a 3rd try
    Our toddler loves her float! She's quite comfortable in it, and it (thankfully) gives our arms a break in the pool. However, we're about to return our second one to the store to give it a 3rd shot. First one, the steering wheel broke off before we even got it blown up (and left a couple of unsafe, sharp plastic pieces behind). Store swapped it out for us, no problem, except now the second one has a leak (blew it up last night, it's flat this morning). Guess we'll be taking it back again. Hopefully the third time's the charm as my daughter really seems to like it and (despite our experience thus far) it feels like it ought to be more durable than many of the alternatives.

    3-0 out of 5 stars OK for very young babies
    3-stars for fun because he enjoyed it for about 5 minutes till he realized that he couldn't hit the water with his hands.

    3-stars for educational value because there really isn't any.

    5-stars for durability because we just bought it and he probably won't use it again till he is a better swimmer.

    We bought this toy for our 18 month old son who is fearless when it comes to the water (but doesn't understand that you can't breathe underwater....so he has to be watched closely).He kept trying to dive out of it and then he would cry because he couldn't reach the water to splash-splash.

    This toy is better suited for either a much younger child who is afraid of the water or one that is already a swimmer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Passed the two year old test
    We got our "toddler racer" in the mail yesterday, and my two year old son was already honking the horn, turning the wheel and trying to climb in before I could finish inflating it.Our pool experience was a lot more fun as we could swim and play games with him without having to take turns holding him at all times.He had a blast, too.He's still obsessed with it and is actually sitting in it right now (inside the house).Highly recommended!

    5-0 out of 5 stars great little float
    i purchased this float for my son when he was two - he is now almost four and now my 10 month year old son uses it - that's how durable this product is - it's easy to blow up and deflate, the kids fit comfortably in the seat and the horn is fun for the kids - they are not as scared of the water if they pretend that they are driving a little car - great price too! ...

    Editorial Review

    Endorsed by three-time Olympic gold medalist Josh Davis, this is an ingenious system designed for 3-to-6-year-olds who weigh between 35 and 55 pounds. Under adult supervision, youngsters sandwich themselves between two green foam plates that are equipped with Velcro shoulder straps and slide toggles for adjustable fit. The ingenuity is in the composition of those foam plates: They're each composed of nine slices of foam. As a child's swimming skills increase with time, these float pads can be removed one by one; soon kids will be dog-paddling with the best of 'em--and all by themselves! If it's not a perfect substitute for swimming lessons from a qualified instructor, the Safe T.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't live without it!
    Great product! Bought the "little swimmer" for my daughter who was almost 2 at the time. Then passed it on to my son who is now almost 2. Bought the "power swimmer" for my daughter last year (when she was 3), unfortunately one of the strings on the side snapped yesterday, but that was after LOTS of use!! So I'm now purchasing another one for her, because we couldn't live without it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Power Swimr, from Swim Ways, Great piece of mind for parents
    Great product and much better than the imitators.The "Swimr" Swim Ways product is better because of the elastic, adjustable threading on both sides for easy adjustments to fit different children or to loosen to get on and off.Other "floaties" we bought after the Swimr only had elastic, non adjustable strips on each side, that did not allow you to tightly fit it on the child, causingthe float literally lift up, pinching in on the child's neck.Because you can easily tighten the Swimr, it does not have this issue.We have used the Swimr for our 3 and 4 year olds (now 6 and 5) and just bought another for our 2 year old.These are hard to find in stores, but well worth the cost and effort.Great piece of mind for parents trying to watch 2-3 kids at the pool at the same time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Safe T. Seal - Swim Fun, Safety, and a Good Value
    This is a terrific product.Keeps the child perfectly boyant while allowing free movement of arms and legs.Helps build the child's confidence in the water for those who are hesitant and provides a measure of protection for those who are fearless (adult supervision, of course, at all times).It's lightweight, adjustable, easy to store, and durable.We first bought one a few years ago for our son who is now 7 and on his own in the water, and another one for our second son who is now 4 (both started using it at about age 2).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gets them learning to swim fast!
    This swim aid gives the child additional buoyancy, but doesn't automatically keep them upright like a life jacket would.Consequently, the first thing the child learns is how to tread water with the aid of a little added buoyancy.This starts them swimming like like you wouldn't believe!Both our boys learned to stay upright and to propel themselves through the water at 20 and 25 months of age.The older son discarded the vest by age 4, then passed the deep water swimming test at our neighborhood pool before his fifth birthday, the youngest child to do so there.I'm convinced it was in large part because of lots of practice with this swim trainer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars awesome helper for early swimmer
    I bought my first one of these for my son when he was about 3 and it has been great. He has special needs and may possibly never totally master independent swimming but with this he can feel very competant and gain skills. He has graduated to the larger size now and my daughter who is 2 used his old one this summer and within just a month or so she was swimming independently. Being able to adjust the amount of needed support is great. You need to watch your child closely to adjust where they need more of the pads (front or back)to stay level. With this the kids have their arms free to really learn how to swim rather then the arm floaties where they just kind of flail their arms in the water. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Swim Aid
    I got this last year for my toddler and he was able to swim almost anywhere in the pool.A friend recomended it to me and credits this float with helping her son learn to swim.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great teaching device
    My daughter started with this a year ago and is doing great.The device really helps children build confidence and independence in the water, which essential in learning to swim. Unlike rings and devices that go fit around arms, the Swim Trainer does not restrict arm movement, which is essential to learning to balance and swim.

    Tipping Over:Some reviewers comment that their children lose their balance in the Swim Trainer and go face down in the water.Initially you still have to be there and help your child with balance until they can do it alone--learning to balance and control your body is an important first step in swimming, just as with walking. The point when the child can balance most of the time leads to confidence and independence ("Do it myself!"). Rings and flotation devices that fit on the arms will make it much easier for the child to balance, but the child therefore won't learn to swim as quickly.Also, most rings and arms flotation devices are inflatable and often prohibited by swimming clubs and public pools.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best swimmy ever
    This is the best swimmy out on the market right now.It completely keeps your child out of the water.As you take the panels out as they grow they don't even realize that they can swim.Before you know it you don't need it anymore.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My 2 1/2 year old swims by herself
    My 2 1/2 year old can really swim by herself.As long as she has the vest on I let her have free rein in the pool.She really has learned to kick and user her arms unrestraint by other floation devices.Just recently we have taken the vest off and she really can swim on her back without assistance and on her stomach with some supervision.I have used the vest for last summer and this summer.I recommend that you rinse it out in after every use and keep it out of the sun or the materal will break down.One extra thing they could do is put some cushioning on the bungee cords under the arms.My daughter loves it too!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Works painfully well
    I bought a couple of these last summer for my (then) 4 and 8 year old sons.They are on the slim side and had no trouble keeping the device on.They both felt comfortable in the pool and even released their terror grip from my shoulders.The MAIN PROBLEM is the chaffing.Since the device is meant to float, it goes with gravity and goes up.This causes the straps on the side to bunch up under the armpits and rub the skin raw.It works but is painful by the end of the day. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!!!!
    I have tried plenty of floating devices for my 2 1/2 year old son. he loves to be in the water and hates for us to be holding him all the time. I was a little scared to try this, thinking it would end up with the rest of the floaties we have tried. but once I got him in the pool, he let go of my hand and swam to the other side of the pool. I felt comfortable letting him explore on his own (while being at arms reach) and he actually paddled and kicked. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting something safe for thier children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Toddlers!
    I recently bought this floater (after wasting tons money on others), and all I have to say is thank you to the Swim Sweater!.My son who is 2 1/2 loves this floater, it makes him feel like a big boy.He does go forward sometimes but he manages to put his head back and paddle.It also gives him a lot of freedom in the pool, and I don't have to be pushing him around like with the other floater, although I'm ALWAYS next to him. He's now more confident and ready for swimming lessons!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best for toddlers and preschoolers!
    We had one of these for our son starting when he was 17 months.He was/is a very tall boy, so he fit in it well before the age of 2.We tried numerous products before we found this product.None of them fit as well or worked as well.Kids CANNOT fall out of this.Toddlers need help getting it over their heads or stepping into it, and in taking it off.In the swim sweater, our toddler was able to kick and move around the pool, get more on his belly and pull with his hands, and feel safe and comfortable in the water.I highly recommend it.

    Our oldest son is 8 now and a great swimmer.I'm here to buy another for our 16 month old.Buy it, you won't regret it!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
    The Swim Sweater is a terrific product.My 4 year old loves it and for the first time she's not afraid to try swimming.It fits her slender build perfectly.The sweater is adjustable by inflating the tire with more or less air.I do not fear her slipping through.And as everyone knows, children should never be unsupervised in the water.
    (...)I am a parent who actually used the product; I am not speculating about its effectiveness.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT swimming tool
    My husband and I used this "swim sweater" this summer for our 3 1/2 year old and our 2 year old. It did NOT, as another reviewer feared, fall off, as you might expect by looking at the picture. (I believe the natural instinct of children is to hold on to the ring around their waist--not to raise their arms, without anything supporting their weight--think about it.)

    My son, who was afraid to "let go" of the wall of the pool under any other circumstances, felt so comfortable and safe while wearing the sweater that he wanted to let go of ME after only 5 minutes! And my daughter, who was just shy of 2, amazed us by floating around the pool without a care, by herself, while wearing the swim sweater.

    I would recommend this item to anyone who has already tried other so-called "floatees"--this one is it. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not Safe for 6 month old
    A friend and I bought this for our 6 month old daughters (17 and 18lbs each). This is a good toy as it seats them fine, however, the problem arises if you do not hold on to your child. My daughter kept sliding to one side and could have easily slid into the water if I wasn't holding on to her physically. There is also too much space btw the seat and the toy in front of the child. The girls couldn't reach it without falling forward. Average infant floating device but I would NOT go my the recommended age. 6 months is too young.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my son LOVED it!
    we found this toy at a local toy store this last summer. My son LOVED it. We started using it with him when he was 7 months old and he enjoyed it for the whole summer. It did develop a slow leak, I wish it was a little more durable... but for the price we got it at, and the enjoyment it gave our son, it was well worth it.As far as the tipping problem goes, your child should NEVER be left unattended. Yes, we had to hold on to the handle at all times, but that is why they are there in the first place. My son used this boat until it was simply too late in the season to go to the pool, and I plan on buying the next step up for next season!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, Terrible Quality
    My 13 month old son used to be a fish in his previous life and hence has a natural affinity for water. When we bought this toy, the first one had a leak so I had it exchanged for another one which worked great for all of 15 minutes before it self destructed (developed a 1-1/2 inch hole along one of the seals). mercifully it did not explode but deflated in seconds.

    The fault could be partly mine because I was pushing it through water. I think if you just let the baby sit in it in water without horsing around at all, it may hold but that wouldn't be fun. If you want to use it actively in water, look for something else.

    I would recommend that if you decide to buy it anyway, buy it from your local store which has it for the exact same price of about $15 so that you may return/exchange it easily.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Toy
    I have used this float toy several times with my 17 month old daughter. unlike the first review it has never came close to tipping over .YOU JUST NEED TO WATCH YOUR CHILD IN IT ALL THE TIME. i would recomend this to all.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Support Baby at All
    I took my 20 pound, 6 month old baby into the pool with me this past weekend.The seat, to put it bluntly, sucks.It's only connected to the outer ring by four little straps of single layer plastic.The inner seat moves around inside the inflated ring.As a result, the seat tipped forward unless I leaned on the back ring of the boat to keep my son level.From that position, I couldn't see whether he was enjoying the water or not.If I had held on to him using the green handles in front I have no doubt I would have tipped him over.

    The "toys" in front are awful.They blow up with the same valve that inflates the rest of the boat and not very well.The rings don't inflate at all and the three plastic balls don't move in their tube.Never mind that my little guy can't see past the darned thing.

    I am extremely disappointed in this product.My sister happened to have a hard plastic baby boat with a cloth sling-like seat and a beautiful shaded canopy that kept the sun off my little guy-- I'll be using that for the rest of the summer. I can't even return this piece of junk because I threw the box away. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    I bought this for my two year old daughter.She felt so secure and confident with this sweater that she didn't feel the need to hold on to me the whole time.Like she did with the arm type swimmies.I would reccommend this to any child learning how to swim.I have bought three, one for our house, one for the sitter's house and one for Grandmom's.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best swim float around!!!
    We used the swim sweater a couple of years ago when my 6 yr. old was 2 1/2.We put in a pool and went through many floatation devices, all which were terribly cumbersome or they didn't hold him upright.Then we found this.What a wonderful product!!!He took to the water right away and never looked back.It basically taught him HOW to swim.You still have to kick your legs and move your arms to get from one place to another.He used the swim sweater for two years in a row and now swims like a pro.My little girl is now using this and she's two in July.She loves it as much as her brother did and so do we!

    5-0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE!
    My 3 year old is afraid of pools.She went in the pool with me and within 10 minutes or so let go of my hand and floated around on her own.Since then, she doesn't want anyone's help getting in the pool and floats all around - it has really boost her water confidence!I highly recommend this product!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun in the Sun!
    My two-year old loves the pool. She hates the confinement of floats, though, so I would carry her around in the water constantly wrestling to keep her from pushing away to attempt swimming on her own. She LOVES her swim sweater. Even though I am with her every second in the water I don't have to constantly cling on to her - she feels so autonomous and is really getting good at paddling around the pool. She stays upright (I was worried about her going under easily like with water wings) and there is no risk of the swim sweater coming off - it is like a bathing suit. Put on the swim sweater and a pair of little swimmer diapers (and a healthy coating of Hawaiian Tropic baby faces) and you are ready for fun in the sun! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Float!
    I brought this for my 15 month old daughter, after she no longer wanted to be confined in a float.We tried arm bands but she kept rolling forward, and we tried the bathing suit with the built in floats but it wasn't boyant enough.This was just perfect.She has her independence and the tube keeps her face from going in the water. Getting in and out of it was very easy and she never complained (unlike the other floats)! The summer is almost over and the float is like new.She is now 18 months old and not only is she very confident in the water, she is a wonderful swimmer. Worth every penny!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This thing is great!
    This was purchased for my son who began using it when he was 1 1/2 years old and he LOVED it.It gave him independence(with mom or dad very close) and mobility and made him feel just like his older siblings. He's now 3 and becoming an excellent swimmer and now he's passed the sweater down to his little brother.Only one thing, the innertube tends to rupture and we've repaired it over and over so we're giving up on the old one and buying a new one for our baby. ...

    Catlog: Sports
    Manufacturer: Finis, Inc.
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

    Product Description

    Zoomers are unique swim fins that utilize patented short-fin technology to promote a shorter, faster kick. They are designed to provide the ideal amount of propulsion for perfecting the swimming kick and stroke, allowing for better form over longer periods of time. Because they have a smaller blade than traditional fins, Zoomers make the legs work harder without overloading the muscles. They help you avoid burnout and sustain an optimum workout level over a longer period. The Zoomers patented fin blade is designed to compensate for various degrees of ankle flexibility, providing maximum propulsion. Zoomers make the legs work harder, but the smaller blade will not overload leg muscles, therefore a high level of intensity can be maintained for a longer period of time. The additional propulsion allows the arms to cycle faster, providing the opportunity to breathe more and increase the oxygen intake needed to sustain the effort of the leg muscles. Zoomers come in two models. Red fins are for advanced competitive swimmers with a developed, strong kick. Blue fins are for swimmers who don't swim every day, but are looking for a strength-training workout. ... Read more

    • The Blue Fitness Zoomer fin is a little softer and is designed for continuous lap swimming, fitness swimming workouts or for swimmers with an inefficient kick.

    This belt is much more comfortable than those full-back styles.It seemed too skimpy to hold up my large frame in the water, but worked great!I got the model with 4 floats, but a smaller adult could probably use just 3.This is a very good value. ... Read more

    We got these for our 4.5 yr old twins.They were too big for their arms and not bouyant enough to support either 40lb boy.
    Positively Dangerous!

    1-0 out of 5 stars What a JOKE!
    I bought these for my 4 1/2 year old because he doesn't like to wear the water rings anymore and I thought they would help him learn to swim on his own. I pulled them out of the package to try them on him when we got home and they were HUGE. They fit on my arm comfortably. I am 5 '3 125 lbs and my arms are not that big around, I don't even think these would fit my 11 yr old brother. There is no way he will be able to wear these when he is six which is the max age limit for them. If your child is obese then they will probably fit! If they only had 3 panels and not 4 they might fit him. I am so disguted!! ... Read more
