Review: Stearns Puddle Jumper

by Parent Co. July 28, 2015

Of the millions of kid related products developed every year, occasionally one comes along that truly makes life easier. Puddle Jumpers, a high performing alternative to the standard life jacket fit that bill completely. Made to fit kids 30-50 pounds, they come in one size with an adjustable strap and several different prints and colors. Unlike typical life vests, Puddle Jumpers don't creep up around little swimmers' necks, instead allowing them to float into a more natural swimming position. And because they are coast guard approved, they can be worn places that inflatable arm floaties are often not permitted. In our house, Puddle Jumpers are to summer what mittens are to winter. Good luck having any fun outside without them.
