SwimWays Ambassador - Teaching Kids To Swim With Pool Floats And Toys

The temperatures have already been in the 100s here, so we're doing everything possible to stay cool. Most days are spent either in the pool or on the boat and I am doing trying to teach my kids to swim. As a SwimWays Ambassador, I was sent several water products to help us have fun in the water.


The kids' absolute favorite thing in the pack was the Rainbow Reef Fish.

Isabella screams, "FISHY!!!", and Evan follows it around the pool. It takes 2 batteries(not included) and there is a little button under a fin to press that makes the tail move. You have to let it fill with water and then it cruises on the top. I wish that it could swim down in the water, but Isabella likes being able to see it on the top too! As you can see in the picture, it is swimming slightly to the side, but if it fills up well with water, then it floats completely upright.

SwimWays also has many products to help teach your children how to swim in a step-by-step process. Here are the different steps.
Step 1- It’s my first time in the pool.
Step 2- I’m ready to paddle and splash.
Step 3- Teach me to swim so we can play together.
Step 4- I can do it—watch me go!

Isabella is between the 1st and second step. She likes to just float around the pool and uses the Baby Spring Float Activity Center w/ Canopy to do so,  but she also likes to get in and splash around. I absolutely adore this float and wish we would have had it for her last summer! The removable canopy has 3 different positions to keep sun off and there are several different toys to keep her busy on the front.

Evan is in stage 4. He is still learning to be a stronger swimmer, but can swim without any floaties. He is constantly wanting to dive and swim from the steps, to a person, and back to the steps. After a while I almost have to force him to put on the arm floaties because I can tell he's getting tired. Thankfully SwimWays has super cute arm floaties that he likes to wear. Evan things the Fishbites Soft Swimmies are "awesome".

Evan looks like a complete goober in his goggles, but he has an absolute blast throwing the ball with us. He usually throws the WetBall while one of us jumps in and tries to catch it before we hit the water. He and Isabella think this is hilarious.

We spend countless hours in the pool and boat each week, and after browsing the SwimWays website, we have a huge wishlist of products! Be sure to check out SwimWays to view their fantastic selection of water products.  You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest!

I have kids in Steps 1, 3, and 4. I'm going to check out the site to see how I can help the younger ones. I hate going to the pool and being worried the whole time! Anything that will help them learn how to swim faster is great!

I love the sunshade/float that Isabella is in, that would be perfect for my fair skinned Mason!

CrunchyVTMommy said...

So so cool and cute. You are fortunate to not only have a pool and water loving kids but that little floating shade is just too adorable. Doesn't hurt that your kids are beautiful either.

Beth M said...

Great post. Love the information on the steps! My kids would all be in different steps too. Off to check this out for our beach trip.

We have the floatie too but it's blue and Madilyn used it ALL SUMMER last year. I wish we could spend more time in the pool but it's hard with the babies being so close in age. Maybe next summer!

Emily @ Baby Dickey said...

Fun stuff! I've been on the lookout for pool stuff for Ryan... we have that floatie with the canopy. Now I want to get him that "fishy!"

Tamara said...

I hadn't heard of SwimWays before but they look like they have a ton of great stuff! I love that Float Activity Center, it would be perfect for Oliver.

Mama B said...

I had no idea they had so many products to offer. I love that each level is addressed and that safety and fun are their main concern.

Jayme said...

Such cute stuff! I need something for the boys- I wish there was a float like Isabella is in that holds two- it's hard for me to keep up with both when they're not tethered together LOL

Terri said...

These look like wonderful products to help children to learn how to swim which I feel is a very important and necessary skill. Thanks for letting us know about these for our 2 granddaughters. :-)

My Kansas City Mommy said...

Oh I LOVE that activity center with the canopy! So cute. Little guy is too young for much swimming this summer, but next year I know he would love this. :)

Bobbie said...

I honestly LOVE that fish! I bet my kids would have a blast with it in the pool! I am going to have to look for it in the store!

SeeryusMama said...

We just purchased a Power Swimr for Paige - love it! Great photos!

Lindsay said...

They're so cute!! That fish looks really cool. I bet my girls would love chasing it around!

Gina said...

These look great, going to check them out. Neither of my girls know how to swim so these would be helpful in teaching them.
Thanks!
