The Swim Ways Sea Squirts Swim Assist vests are not life vests, they are swimming training aids to help your kids learn to swim. The layers of removable floatation panels help your kids have buoyancy to help them learn proper position when swimming. It aids in stability when learning proper swimming techniques.
Your kids will love, love, love the fun styles of the swim assist vests – perfect for kids that like to pretend to be animals and play dress up. Your kids can be a clown fish like Nemo, a black orca, blue dolphin, or pink dolphin. I’m sure they all act like they are sharks though – mine do! I have found adults like the styles too. Check out the lady laughing at my daughter’s pink dolphin vest below. She couldn’t get over it and asked where to buy one!
My 5 year old daughter Elizabeth really likes wearing her dolphin vest. She says it helps her swim and it does. She is trying more and more swimming techniques when she wears the vest than when she doesn’t. It doesn’t give her the floatation that a life vest would give. The Swim Assist Vest gives kids the confidence they need to try to swim and actually learn how to swim. It is an amazing product!
It teaches kids proper positioning by giving them better balance by reducing forward tipping. It gives kids better control and stability when swimming.
What I like about this product is that you can gradually wean your child away from the need to use this product with the removeable floatation panels until they eventually don’t need it at all!
The swim assist vests are super soft with a neoprene fabric, so it is comfortable for kids to wear. They won’t want to take it off. My daughter wears her swim assist vest even at home!
My daughter and her friends like to take turns wearing her vest. I recommend this to any kid learning to swim – and I do recommend it at the pool every single time she wears it because I get tons of people asking. My daughter is always happy to let the other kids try it out at the pool, it is such a fun product!
