Summer is fast approaching, and there is nothing better than taking a dip in the pool or sea when enjoying your family holiday. But with recent statistics finding that 1/3 of all UK children cannot swim, spending time around the water with small children can leave parents a little uneasy.
With a few months to go until peak summer season, now is the perfect time to start building up your children's confidence and skills in the water. Along with swimming lessons, children's swimming aids are also a great way to instil water confidence in your children, help them enjoy swimming, and most importantly stay safe this summer.
We’re taking a look at the range of kid’s water aids available from swimwear specialists Zoggs
, and the advantages of packing swimming aids for your children this summer.
inflatable Swim free Floatsuit is available in ages 1-2 and 2-3, and is the perfect swim aid for younger children. The full body float suit is ideal for keeping your children lifted in the water, and with two designs for both boys and girls, the fun colours are sure to be a hit with your little one. As well as giving them a boost of confidence, the suits provide maximum sun protection UPF 50+ - what more can you ask for?
For older children, the Zoggs
swim jacket is a great help in the water. The Velcro fastenings make it easy to put on and take off, and the secure jacket is sure to install a boost of confidence. Wear over a wetsuit or swimming costume for additional support in the water this summer - available in both blue and pink.
Ideal for assisting your kids in the pool, the Zoggy
back float slips on your child’s back like a rucksack and will keep them afloat when swimming. Available for only £14.00, the removable layers allow you to remove one layer at a time as your little one gains confidence in the water; this item is great for peace of mind when your children are playing in water. Available for ages 2-6, we highly recommend packing this swimming aid this summer.
