ELC Swim Float - Pink
Advantages: Cheap, nice colours and most importantly, helps my daughter to swim
We are currently in the process of trying to teach my 4 year old to swim and one are which we are struggling with is back stroke. I decided to but some sort of floating aid after seeing a swimming class using one at my local swimming baths.
I spotted this online at Early Learning Centre and it was currently on their buy 2 get one free promotion for outdoor toys so it gave me an excuse to buy a couple of other items too!
The float is really simple in design, it predominantly lilac in colour and has a sandwich effect around the edge (it has a white line all around the edge yet the top of underside of the float is lilac). On both sides of the float there is a picture of a seahorse sort of engraved into it.
The float measure around 4 cm deep which I feel was a nice thickness for Lauren to be able to hold comfortably.
The float is also available in red, and this has an outline of a dolphin on it.
Both products retail for £5 and are available at Mothercare, Early Learning Centre, online and in store, I have also noticed recently, Amazon selling ELC products and they also have the same promotions running (but they seem to have free delivery!)
When we first introduced this to Laurens swimming routing, she instantly knew how to use and quickly started to swim on her front whilst holding this out in front of her,
Since using the float, Laurens confidence when swimming on her back has really seemed to grow, she can now swim 10 meters on her back whilst holding the float against her chest.
I would recommend this float, when Lauren was a baby, we used to take her swimming every week but as I started back to work, these trips became less frequent and eventually she came more wary of the water, this has really helped to boost her confidence and also start to swim on her back. Being able to swim is such a necessity that I would have paid a lot more for the product so I think £5 is an absolute bargain!
5 out of 5 stars from me!
