The 5 Best Swimming Aids for Toddlers

on 28th October 2015

The Zoggs range of swimming aids for toddlers has been specially developed to include bright colours and popular characters that help little ones feel excited about swimming, as well as plenty of safety features that help them feel safe and secure once they’re in the water.

Here are just 5 of our favourite swimming aids for toddlers from our range:award

Swimfree Floatsuit

Recently awarded consumer choice in the Swim Safety category in the Best Baby & Toddler Gear Awards 2015, the popular Swimfree floatsuit allows you to lessen the amount of buoyancy as your child gains confidence in the water.

The Swimfree Floatsuit is also perfect for long days in the pool and on the beach as it's made with UPF50+ fabric - the highest level of sun protection found in the clothing. Suitable for ages 1-2 years (11-15kg) and 2-3 years (15-18kg).

Zoggy Swim Bandsmiss_zoggy_swim_bands_2015

Designed for little ones aged 1 to 6 years old, these armbands feature Easy Inflate valves that help you blow them up quickly (toddlers have little patience for these things!), and provide a snug, stable fit around the upper arm to help your child feel safe, secure and buoyant in the water.

Boys and Girls Swim Jackets

They feature in-built, puncture proof floats for buoyancy and a zip that makes them easy to put on or take off over any other item of children’s swimwear.

Peppa Pig and George Back Floatpeppa_backfloat

If your child is ready to learn basic swimming moves then the Peppa Pig and George backfloat provides the extra buoyancy and unrestricted freedom of movement in the water they need.

Suitable for children aged 2 to 6 (max. weight 25kg), this backfloat features four layers of lightweight yet robust EVA and a double-action safety buckle. It secures across your child’s chest via an adjustable strap and promotes a safe, horizontal swimming position. As they grow in skill and confidence, each float can be removed to adjust the buoyancy.

Zoggy and Miss Zoggy Swim Rings

These fun inflatables feature our very own Zoggy and Miss Zoggy zoggy_and_friends_swim_ring-boys-blue_20130927characters! Perfect for toddlers aged 2 to 3 (max. weight 15kg) these colourful swim rings help keep your child upright and encourages them to kick freely and enjoy the sensation of being in all that water.

Just like the Peppa and George , these rings also feature Easy Inflate valves for fast inflation and deflation, plus they include dual air chambers for added safety.

Any of these swimming aids for toddlers will help them, and you, to have fun, play safe and take to the water together in confidence.
