Product Description

Endorsed by three-time Olympic gold medalist Josh Davis as "the best way to learn to swim," this is an ingenious system designed for 2-to-3-year-olds who weigh between 20 and 35 pounds. Under adult supervision, youngsters sandwich themselves between two yellow foam plates that feature Velcro shoulder straps and slide toggles for adjustable fit. The ingenuity is in the composition of those foam plates: They're each composed of nine slices of foam. As a child's swimming skills increase with time, these float pads can be removed one by one; soon kids will be dog-paddling with the best of 'em--and all by themselves! If it's not a perfect substitute for swimming lessons from a qualified instructor, the Safe T. Seal Little Swimr Swim Trainer does provide a wonderful way for kids to gain confidence in the water. --Tony Mason

Gives the children the confidence to learn to swim and the parent the control to keep them safe. Nine (hidden from child sight), removable flotation pads. Easy adjustable design provides a comfortable, soft, and secure fit. Easy for parent to put on and take off, extra security measures keep child from removing SWIMR by themselves.

Features:
  • Gives confidence to the youngest swimmers.
  • Graduated flotation advances swimming ability at the child's own pace.
  • Hidden pockets keep flotation pads secure.
  • Adjustable cords help create a snug fit and keep kids feeling confident.
  • Fits kids weighing 20-35 lbs (approximately).

Customer Reviews:

  • Unsafe For Any Age
    We bought this item for my toddler son. It was truely unsafe from the beginning. Problem is that his face stays underwater and he cannot get his balance. We then tried it on my 4 year old, the same thing happened with him that he could not keep his face above the water. It looks like a good concept, but we did not get the "SAFE" feeling from it. Also the velco straps that connect to the shoulder left my son with a dry, rubbed red mark....more info
  • Great for kids who have the concept of swimming
    We moved to AZ and bought a house with a pool. Our daughter was 3 at the time and a "cling-on" in the water. She did not make it very fun to have a pool. Then I bought this thing, and it changed our lives! She can swim independently now, and we all enjoy it. I agree with the other reviews that, if your child does not have the concept of swimming, this will not make them independent. But once they do, this is the best way for the entire family to enjoy swimming!...more info
  • Excellent product for small children
    This floatie works great for smaller children who cannot yet fit into the standard vests. It has allowed my child to float in the pool and tread water. It is a great first step towards swimming and fits really well because it can be adjusted. The strap between the legs does not allow the float to ride up around the neck which is good....more info
  • great learn to swim tool
    Both of my kids have used this "vest" and they loved it! My older daughter now 5.5 learned to swim independently before she was five. My younger daughter is almost swimming. We never had any problems with it....more info
  • Great for 18m-3yrs
    We bought this early on and our three year old is fearless in the water. It allows him to use his hands so he can play with other things in the pool. Great if start using it fairly early....more info
  • Great Product
    Last summer my daughter had one of these trainers and worked miracles on her. She was too nervous and shy at regular group swimming lessons so we were trying everything to make her comfortable in the water. By the end of the summer, she was two and a half years old and was very confident and happy in the pool. As she built more confidence, we would secretly take out more of the foam inserts. Eventually, she was swimming with just the empty vest, no inserts!! The way that she was gradually having to do more and more of the work was what really worked for her. I'll buy another for my other daughter when she's older....more info
  • MUST HAVE! Great for the Little Swimmer!! :)
    We purchased this for our little boy (who was not quite 2 at the time). This has been a wonderful tool in teaching him how to swim. The pads in the front and back are removeable, so as they get better at swimming, you remove the pads, etc. I highly recommend this item!!!...more info
  • This is the best product for teaching toddlers to swim.
    Our family has tried several different aids for teaching our kids to swim at an early age. This is by far the best product. It is versatile because you can adjust the size significantly as your child grows as well as adjust the buoyancy depending on your child's confidence level. I can't recommend this product more!...more info
  • Just a quick note
    Just a quick note to the parent who has the 'strikes' against it, it clearly says 20-30 pounds, NOT 37 pounds, that would explain half your problems. Get the bigger one....more info

  • Great Swim Aid
    The Swim Trainer is an easy on easy off swimming aid that the child steps into and then velcros at the shoulders and tightens on the sides. The front and back pouch have 9 remomovable bouyancy pads that can be taken out (without the child even knowing) as the childs swimming ability increases.

    This is a great learning to swim tool. Both my children have used it since they were about 20 months old and it has been a total success with building their confidence in the water.

    My youngest who is 2 and weighs about 24 lbs had some trouble with balancing and was tipping over. We remedied this problem by removing one of the 9 removalble pads in the front of the trainer and never had another problem.

    Another bonus with this swim trainer is that the children have free movement of their arms (unlike floaties) so they learn to paddle.

    I would recommend this to anyone with a child learning to swim....more info

  • Great for the pool!
    We started my son with a swim sweater(tube) when he was 2, graduated to the small litte swimmer (yellow) when he was 3, the medium (green)little swimmer at 4. He's 5 now and can swim without the device. The motions he used with the swimmer to get around the pool taught him to swim without lessons. He still can't touch the bottom of the pool, but he's got the large swimmer (purple) so he can play longer in the pool without getting tired.

    The little swimmer requires some upper body strength so if your tike is having problems keeping upright, start with the swim sweater. The tube is under the child's arms and sits higher in the water....more info

  • GREAT FOR TODDLERS
    We bought this for out 2 yr. old daughter since we were going on vacation....SHE WAS LOVING IT!!!!! She loves the water but cannot swim. With this swim aid, she actually felt as if she were swimming....the look on her face of accomplishment was memorable. For extra support we added the arm floats and she was on her own. She was at it alone with us very near by. I love it, she loves it....more info
  • Great product, fatally flawed
    My two year old daughter swims on her own easily with this and is confident that she will not go under. It has held up well except for one problem. The strap that goes between the child's legs and connects the two pads, preventiing the vest from slipping up over the head (strap conveniently not pictured above) chafes the skin badly. The vest came with an add-on fix of a grey piece of foam, which is easily lost.

    The two pads should be connected with a swimsuit type liner that disperses the force and does not chafe. I'd buy another one no problem if that one improvement were made....more info

If you are going to use this in a chlorinated pool, it will fade and the outer cloth will deteriorate due to the chemicals, which is to be expected....more info
  • For older tots
    I got this for my 2 year old son (who is petite) - it fit him well but once we were in the water, it was very unstable. He kept tipping to either side and couldn't stay floating in the proper position. We borrowed a friend's ring with a seat (so the child doesn't fall through the hole) and he played for hours very happily. Plus my arms got a little rest....more info
  • great idea...unfortunately it does NOT work
    I bought this in the hopes that I could get my 3 year old out of her tire-tube bathing suit.It looked great on the package.I took it out,a tight fit for my 37 pound daughter so strike one.Definitely designed with a petite child in mind.Once we got it on she didn't mind it.So I put her in the pool.The whole thing immediately rode up around her chin.Strike two.It looked like a neck brace.I tried tightening it but that didn't work.I tried removing some of the removable styrofoam lining(again a great idea but not for us)that didn't work.So I gave up and switched back to her tire-tube suit.
    Great idea,but I wish I hadn't spent the money on 2 of them.
    It might work on a taller child but safety wise I wouldn't recommend it.The straps use velcro to hold together and if you had to pull a child out in an emergency I don't think they'd hold.Strike 3.Bottom line: I wish I had left this on the shelf in the store where it belongs,instead it's sitting on my shelf collecting dust....more info
