Packaging was
minimalist and easy to access however it is not biodegradable and looks cheap.
A cardboard box would be more professional and also biodegradable. Easy and clear instruction using pictures and
words. Needed help to put it on himself
as he is only 2 but a slightly older child wouldn’t have a problem. He is quite
a skinny child so it was on its tightest setting to stop it falling down but it
did just fit. He loved it and wouldn’t
take it off! I think overall yes, he
loved using it but as he is used to arm bands he was scared at first to use it
without the arm bands. We decided to start with armbands too and gradually
reduce the number of rings until he was confident to go without them with just
the swim fin. He eventually got the hang of it and whilst he is still a bit
unsure he did manage to swim by himself after a while. Also helped him have a
better alignment in the water as it encourages the bottom to be held higher in
the water which he struggled to do with arm bands. Yes it’s very simple you use tape it on and
off you go! He isn’t up to any proper
strokes yet but I can see how it would be better than armbands for strokes as
the arms are completely free to move. Love
it, great design and quality and nice choice of colours too! Yes, it’s not much
more than armbands in price and it’s a lot easier as there is no blowing up or
punctures to deal with. Also the arms are free to move how they wish. I really liked the overall idea is very
appealing to children, it’s easy to use and works well as it allows the arms to
move freely and supports the back and bottom to stay higher in the water giving
better alignment. I would purchase as a great product. Would definitely recommend. Great product, easy to use and fun for
children. William loved using it and wouldn’t take it off even around the
house! It’s gives good support and encourages proper alignment in the water and
allows the arms to move freely. Only think I would change is packaging to a box
ad it looks more professional and is biodegradable. Hannah Gregory – Son 2 Years

The product
looked good (well made), Henry was extremely excited. Packaged well, showed the
contents, clearly labelled. Clear and
easy to understand instructions. It was
easy to get on but an adult had to do, Henry couldn’t manage on his own. This fitted well, no slipping etc. Henry loved it as it gave him freedom in the
water as he usual has a woggle. He also liked pretending to be a shark! Henry was a little unsure at first, but his
confidence grew the more he used it and realised he wasn’t going to sink. Very
easy to use, clear instructions, easy to put on. This did help Henry with his swimming
stroked. It allowed Henry to use his
arms when swimming unaided. This is fantastic quality. Well worth the money,
really good quality. I liked that Henry was able to enjoy the water without
having to worry about holding on to his woggle. I also liked the freedom it
gave him and although I was with him at all times I could also focus on my
daughter as I felt this was safer than the woggle. The fin also allows the
child to practice correct swimming methods as their arms are free. I would
definitely purchase this product and highly recommend. Excellent product, to encourage confident
swimming. We really enjoyed trialling the swim fin and it is a product that we
will get a lot of use out of in the future. I feel that the product is a lot
better than other products currently available and it is clear to see when in
use how it will help with swimming progress. Claire Gooding Matthews – Henry 3 Years

It was
bigger than expected but it looked great. Packaging was simple but well
protected. Instructions very easy to
understand and item was easy to assemble. This was very straight forward to get on due
to shark fin design. I knew exactly which way to put it on. This fitted
perfectly and we loved the fact it could be tightened for extra snug fit for him. My son absolutely loved
this. When it first arrived he was pretending to be a shark.He
seemed more confident in the water than if he was wearing nothing. This is such
a fun design for children.I
definitely noticed that my son was more confident in the water with the swim
fin. For example he would swim further from us than usual. Took a little while for my son to get used to
this and work as it is a foreign object on his back. To be honest as my
child is 5 we have only really used it for forward crawl/ breast stroke. This
felt like a quality product that is sturdy and well made. We all love the
colour and unique design. We all agreed we would have bought this
product had we known about it. For the quality it’s a great price. We
loved the fact this product was a great swimming aid which looked amazing and
unique as well. I loved that it gave my son more confidence in the water.Would definitely buy this item. This
product will be a staple every time we go swimming. We are even planning
to take it on our summer holiday this July.Yes I would recommend, because
of its learning uses and its cool design and price we have already recommended
it. This deserves top marks due to overall quality,ease of
use and helpfulness in the water. When this product first arrived my son was so
excited to get swimming. At his age arm bands are becoming less cool so
the swim fin a solved this for us. We loved this design and along with
the colour really stood out. The swim fin really helped my son to be more
confident in the water, which in turn made us as parents feel more confident to
let him go a little further (whilst still keeping a watchful eye). The price of
this product was extremely worth it for the quality and we are looking forward
to taking thus on our annual summer holiday. Samantha Komarova – Ethan 5 years
