I love this for my 4year old daughter who is still learning to swim. She got this when she was about 2 1/2 and it allows her to swim freely without flipping over or sinking. Excellent product!!!
I bought this for my 2 and 1/2 year old last summer and she is using it this summer as well. She has absolutely no fear of the water so I was always on edge before we bought this vest. Now, I can relax and know that even if she falls in or jumps in she is going to pop right up. She never complains about it being uncomfortable so thankfully, I never have to fight her wear it. This has been one of the best purchases I have ever made!! Every toddler who hasn't learned to swim needs this vest!
Bought this for my daughter last year when she was two. She was well under 30lbs. So it fit big of course. Nevertheless she was out in the pool swimming on her own. Now three and about 30lbs. it fits better but still big enough to last awhile.
We bought one of these for my daughter last year at 2 1/2 years old. She loved it, her friends loved it and the other kids in the family. We have since bought 3 more for other kids that go swimming with us. I love these things that much that I bought them for other kids to wear. My 5 1/2 year old nephew also did great with this, he really started learned how to swim with this.
After trying so many float devices & arm floats, FINALLY, this one does exactly what we needed it to do. A 1, 2 & 4 year old all love these & it works. The 2 yr old was paranoid about the swimming pool until he got this. Now he just jumps right in. This is nice because it fastens in the back where the kids cannot take it off without your help/permission. We ended up getting 3 of the 3D versions, but only because that was the only way we could end up with three the same so the grand kids would not fight over them. We ended up with the green froggy ones although we would liked to have had three yellow ones. Well, they work. They last. They are great. Both the boys & the girls float correctly with these, unlike some other floats. Can you tell we are happy with these?
bought this for my 20 month old granddaughter and 17 month old niece, it far exceeded my expectations, better than floaties and the girls let them on - the only drawback? they cannot get their little arms up to eat a snack when they have the vest on, but we can live with that
I bought this for my 2 year old daughter and we love it! She swims around the pool like a fish! Other kids her age have come swimming with us and borrowed her other one (Yes, I bought two!), they loved just as much as she does! It will fit at least until five years of age, maybe longer. One word of caution is that kids get very confident and begin to think they can swim without it. You just have to watch them when they get of the pool and make sure they do not take it off and jump in! If it is put on properly though, they should not be able to get out of it:) Excellent product! If you are looking for a something to boost your kids confidence in the water and ease your mind at the pool, this is it! Love It!
After wasting lots of money on other products, this is the best ever swim aid I have ever found for little ones. My 3-year old and 5-year old grandsons, and my 6-year old granddaughter are all swimming all over my pool with this item. All were afraid of the water, but they feel safe and secure in the Puddle Jumper, and I feel comfortable with this design that won't accidentally come off, deflate, or let them go under the water. I have 3 of these and they are great!!
These things saved my life. I have a 21 month old daughter who LOVES to "swim" but cant yet, and doesnt know how to float or anything....she also fights me holding her in the pool, she is just a dare devil. So every time we swim its a nightmare because she wants to swim without me holding her, but cant yet. She also really likes jumping off the side of the pool into the water OVER and OVER and OVER. With these puddle jumpers she can do all of those things ALL BY HERSELF. She is actually under the weight limit (25lbs) but they fit fine and will probably fit for a long time. I didnt get the yellow one with a whale which was a bit of a bummer, i got a green one with a lion. But whatever. Love these. Best money I have spent in a long long time. My friend also bought some for her 4 and 6 year olds (6 year old is small) because they had never been in water before (WHAAAT!? i know...) and they LOVE these. I recommend trying them to anyone who is interested.
Bought this for my 21 month old. It is a little big but he will still wear it some. Next summer it will be perfect for him. I am a little diappointed I didn't get the right one. I ordered it and they sent me a orange one with a alligator on it when I choose the yellow. Lucky they sent a boy one I guess. Really we like it though since he can't pop holes in it as easy. We have already went through 3 floats that were plastic for that reason.
This product gave me a great security of letting my child in and around the pool with the family this summer. It fits great and gives my 3 year a lot if confidence in the water!
It says that this vest for for 30lbs and up but my daughter is 28lbs and it fits her just fine. I do like the vest but the one issue I have is that it really does not keep her above water as much as I thought it would. Of course she floats with it on and if she goes all the way under water it shoots her back to the the surface quickly but when she is just floating around the pool it just barely keeps her face out of the water. The water comes up to her chin and this makes my daughter a little nervous.
I bought this for my 4 year old daughter (who was petrified of deep water) after seeing a kid younger then her wearing one. After 10 minutes of holding onto me screaming she was going to drowned she was jumping off the diving board at our local pool. AMAZING PRODUCT. Well worth the money. She has NO fears of swimming and I have no fear of letting her swim without me two steps behind her. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a floatation device for their child. I wish I had bought this sooner, and had never wasted money on life jackets. Now if our local Walmart would only get boy ones in stock! My son is dying to swim like his big sister!
I don't actually own this product yet, but I've borrowed it a couple times. One set of cousins got them last year and love them, and my daughter borrowed one. Now the other set of cousins has them too and also loves them. As far as durability goes, all I can say is both families that do own them use them a lot and they don't have any damage. After my youngest borrowed one this past weekend, I finally decided to buy one. He likes the water, but usually doesn't last very long before he wants to get out, but this time I had to practically drag him out of the pool. He was so happy to be able to "swim"! I highly recommend this product.
I do not know why there are different prices on these Puddle jumpers. They are all made the same. Ordered the Cheapest one they had & was shipped the most expensive one in the list. This is second one I have purchased for my Grandkids. 2 year old was floating comfortable on his back in the pool. By Second day was diving in head first. This flotation device brought him to the surface & up right every time. Great for a child that is 36 pounds. I do not think it will fit to 50 pounds like it says it will.
I bought this life vest for my daughter that is 3 1/2 and weighs 35 lbs. This is probably the best life vest I have ever purchased. It keeps them in the swimming position and gives them free movement around their arms. It is life guard approved. It didn't take long for her to jump in and she actually likes to wear them. I've tried the vests and find that the strap rubs between her legs and while in the water it always seems to ride up under her chin. So if you've had that same problem and your child is between 30 - 50 lbs. give this one a try. I think everyone that has a child around her age has asked where I purchased it from!
we bought this for my 3 year old son and when he was 2 and this year he has done amazing.. i can put it on him and let him go! He has a ball.. He is doing swimming lessons now and he wears it at his practices.. it is a perfect life jacket!!
While it fit my son great (he's 4) and kept him afloat so he could "swim" alone, the arm parts were stuck on him in such a way that he was crying in pain when I tried to take it off of him and they left bruises on his arms! I wish I would have bought just a regular life jacket instead for $5 more...
I really like this vest, it is comfortable for my 3 1/2 year old son to wear for long periods of time and supports him well in the water. The problem that I had when ordering it from the website was the one pictured (yellow with a shark) was NOT what we got. When I picked it up at the store, the puddle jumper we recieved was HOT PINK! I wish there was a way to choose the color or at least the gender. I was very disappointed that I had to return it and go to Dick's sporting goods to find one that was a little more appropriate for a boy.
Using the Puddle Jumper makes me feel much more at ease with my toddler around water. It fit my 30 pound 2 year old just fine and she doesn't mind wearing it at all.
