Want to toss a child into a pool? I do!
By Wayne R. Boardman
I bought this product based on seeing a friend throw a 3 year old into the deep end of a swimming pool while wearing this. The child simply floated back to the surface and calmly doggy paddled back to the ladder to climb out and be tossed back in again. The friends also had an 18 month old wearing one, and like anything found in a Ronco Kitchen, were able to set it, and forget it. They gently put her in the pool and she merely floated around and enjoyed herself. I said to my self, "Wayne, you've always wanted to throw your tiny human into a swimming pool!" and promptly bought one of these when I got home.
Seriously folks, this works perfectly as designed, forcing the children to float in a position that easily keeps their head above water. Love it!

We both love it!!! Looking forward to pool fun!
I got this for my baby who is a chunky 12 month old, 26.5 lbs, 31 in., Works great for him! He loves the pool, and is always trying to imitate when he sees others swim, He will not sit still in the infant floaty chair (tried to climb out!) and a plain life jacket did not keep his head above water. This is perfect for him! The front pad helps his head stay above the water and the arm floaty helps him move around. You are able to adjust it and the arm floaty fits pretty securely! I was afraid it would be too big. It also gives me peace of mind because it is certified by the US COAST GAURD! Obviously you must always have your baby within arms reach when starting out swimming.
We just got it today and used it right away! boy, he was so happy to be free to kick and splash his arms around! He also was able to roll on his back and float around too! It made me so happy to see how much more he was enjoying the pool! (he loves the pool). Now I look forward to going to the pool even more with him! <3 Looking forward to lots of summertime pool fun! Get it!!!

At first it looks like it will not work but when i put it ...
Works very well. At first it looks like it will not work but when i put it on my daughter (2 1/2 year old, 27 pounds) she was able to swim around the pool by herself. Her shoulders sits above the water, so she feels confident swimming by herself.
