ELC Armbands - Red
Advantages: Fun looking, really good float to them when blown up, comfortable on the skin
When it comes to the safety of my kids in the water I want to buy a brand that I know and trust and that's why when my son needed some armbands when he was learning to swim I went to the early learning centre to see what they had.
The armbands I ended up getting were the gender neutral ones that came in red although there were also pink ones available so perhaps the red is actually aimed at boys.
They are quite cute with black dolphins and fish on them and I could see both little boys and little girls liking them. They do come with a big warning on them just giving basic information such as how they will not protect against drowning and to fully inflate them etc.
They come with a valve to blow them up and I found them easy enough to blow up and then let down again. When they are fully inflated they do offer really good bounce and float well in the water. My son always felt much more secure in the water when he was wearing these. They were also comfortable on his skin and didn't rub or chaff it.
They offer protection for a good rage of ages from 1 to 6 years and from 11 to 30 kilos. My son didn't need them for long and was still well within the age range when he stopped using them but I think I would have felt comfortable with him using them even if he had been a little older as they really did keep him afloat well in the water.
I would highly recommend these armbands as safety is important in the water and these were great for keeping my son afloat and helping him built up his confidence in the water and encouraging him to become a stronger swimmer.
The armbands are available at ELC shops on the high street and cost £6 which I think is money well spent.
Summary: A good pair of armbands for helping your children build up their confidence in the water
