Check out this real review for Stearns Puddle Jumper Kids Life Jacket!

My 2 and 4 year olds love these. Finally they can be “independent” in the pool. The look of sheer awe and happiness on their faces during their first swim was priceless. It makes parents’ lives easier, too. While I am of course watching them constantly in the pool, I no longer have to be tethered to my children. And they are able to paddle around and play which is a huge improvement from other floaters we have used. Plus we were able to find a color and pattern out of the huge selection to suit each child. Other great things include it’s simple design, easy on and off with just one buckle, and material is durable and dries quickly in the sun.

I let my friend’s 2.5 year-old try ours and she went home and ordered one the very next day.

I would recommend this for small children whether they have learned to swim or not because even strong swimmers can “go under” sometimes. These don’t seem to limit the children’s ability to play or move about but provides an additional layer of security.
