We use this product several times a week at the local pool! My 3 year old daughter and 3 year old brother love the independence it allows them in the pool, as does my five year old sister! My 3 year old only weighs 30 pounds and it works great for her! They jump in the pool and swim all around with the Puddle Jumper on! I have included pictures of the Pink Zebra and Meercat because as we were looking, there were no pictures of these anywhere on the internet and we bought them blindly. I decided to add photos so people could see what they looked like!
My 3 1/2 year old daughter loves this floater! It lets her do what she wanted..... swim without assistance. She is a very independent little girl. It looks comfortable, she hasn't complained otherwise. She is a very small girl... only 25 lbs. Fits well.
I love these! I have been working with my 2-3 yr old to get her comfortable in the water, and she would NOT do anything in the pool except cling, panic stricken to my neck. And this has gone on for weeks. We borrowed one of these and with in 15 minutes she was floating by herself! And with in 30 minutes, she was hopping (gently) off the side and swimming to the ladder by herself!!! I ran to buy one as soon as I could! I would have paid $60 for one of these. And I lend them to all my friends with water-timid children!
I only used this once on my daughter but it was amazing! She is only almost 2 years old (but big for her age) and she was able to float around in the pool by herself today! Last year we had the things she could float around in but she'd climb out and we bought and tried 3 different things afterwards that would allow her some independence (as she'd jump out of our arms when we held her) and nothing worked. We just opened our pool back up and I put it on her today and she put her legs up and floated around the pool. She loved getting to 'swim' and I loved not having to hold her the whole time!
Makes my kids feel comfortable in the water. My kids are even over the 50 lbs and still worked great(ages 4, 5, and 7). Highly recommend.
I LOVE this product! It is a certified life vest and your child is very mobile in it unlike the traditional life vest. Earlier this summer we had a tradtional life vest and I was a nervous reck with my 1 year old around the water. With this life vest, I am much more calm and let him just be a kid playing in the water. I would recommend this to EVERYONE!
I bought a Stearns Lifejacket for double the price to keep my 2 year old afloat in the pool. It tipped her forward and was a disaster. This Puddle Jumper was wonderful! She could venture a bit on her own, and loved the freedom. It kept her afloat. I would definitely recommended it to anyone- worth the price.
Much better than other products/options for water safety. Arm floaties weren't enough, life jackets slipped up over their faces and other options were way too bulky and uncomfortable. The kids love these and don't mind wearing them. Their confidence in the water has greatly improved eapecially the 3yr old. They now insist on swimming by "themselves" so they don't want to be held or helped in the water. I highly recommend these to anyone who has children. We ordered the pink zebra and the orange gator. The kids also enjoyed the designs/graphics on the product. I'm sorry that I don't have photos.
Didn't think it would be good and looked very uncomfortable but after seeing my little nephew do great with his I bought one for each of my great grandchildren. It works great and let the children have freedom to be in the water without someone holding on to them
This is the best product out there for pool safety. I ended up buying another one!
I recently bought three of these for my grandchildren who are ages 2, 22 mos and 19 mos. They were all still at the hold-on-to-me stage of swimming though all three loved the pool. These vests totally freed them to swim solo (with an adult close by), and allowed them to quickly learn how to maneuver themselves in the water when regular life jackets did not. On our boat, these were more comfortable than reg. life jackets that push up the chin and seem very uncomfortable. I highly recommend these for swimming and boating as well.
I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone with a young child! My three year old was very reluctant of the water before I purchased this product. Once she got the Puddle Jumper Life Vest she turned into a little fish! She now swims around the pool without any help at all, and loves jumping in by herself. The vest helps keep her afloat, and I love that it's all one piece, so there's no chance the arm floats will fall off! An excellent investment, and you won't find it any cheaper than at Walmart!
We bought two of these life vests for our 2 youngest children ages 3 and 6 and it works great! They wear them in the pool and can swim around great with this product. Works much better than the round swimming tubes for them to play in the water, and they enjoy wearing these rather than swimming around in a tube.
I was interested in this item becuase I have friends that have them on their kids. I had been using two arm floaties and a life vest which was in turn 3 pieces to get off and on during a swimming day. When I seen these on Walmart at the price it was a no brainer. It is perfecto! Everything is covered in fabric so it is super easy to get off and on of the childs arm. My son is 3 and he can swim and hang out in 5ft water with us with no problem at all. Wonderful product! Highly Recommend!
This is awesome! Very safe and reliable. I bought it for my 7year old grandson who is a bit over 50 pounds fits fine and probably will next year. Much more buoyancy than those arm floaties that tend to slip.
Grand daughter liked it. Wished there was one a little larger for her bigger sister. She's the one that's a little scared ofvthevwater. But over all it a good product.
I ordered what I saw was a blue puddle jumper for a boy and received a purple and pink one for a girl. It was a waste of my time. I needed it for an event and couldn't use it.
Shopping at Walmart.com is so much better than in the store. The registers are always open. I try not to shop in Walmart anymore because you can not get checked out, but online is great.
Love these for young children. Too bad they are no longer available at the stores as I would think that parents would purchase them for their children as they are better than life jackets and water wings.
I bought one of these for my 4 year old daughter last year, it gave her so much confidence in the water and I felt safe with her using it. I'm going back to get another for my 3 year old son to use. I would recommend the Puddle Jumper live vest to anyone.
