Get your child water confident this summer with new Float Wings from Splash About

Splash About has combined traditional armbands with the chest support of its multi-award winning FloatSuits to create Float Wings. These brand new puncture-proof foam Float Wings are specifically designed as a safe way for your child to have fun whilst gaining confidence in water. Available now in two great prints; Castles & Dragons and Unicorns & Rainbows. RRP £18.99 from and

The foam floats in the arms and across the chest are non-removable and unlike traditional armbands, cannot be punctured. The Float Wings provide UPF50 sun protection to vulnerable shoulders as a Nylon Lycra vest secures the wings in place. To wear, simply pull on the arms, slip the vest over your child’s head and fasten with the rear 3-point adjustable locking buckle.

“Splash About is credited with creating the first ever child’s float jacket; this adjustable buoyancy system has since evolved into our best-selling FloatSuits – the much-imitated standard in learn-to-swim aids. Combining this self-balancing chest support with traditional armbands for water balance, helps to keep children afloat, increase their confidence and most importantly have fun in the water as they learn to swim.” Commented Bernadette Spofforth Splash About’s Managing Director.

Splash About’s Float Wings conform to CE European Standards and are available in one size, suitable for children aged 2-6 years. The soft weave of the Nylon Lycra fabric adds extra comfort for sensitive skin and causes less chaffing, but the durable foam floats will last wear after wear. Ideal for the pool at home or on holiday and with matching swimming costume or board shorts to complete the look! 

The launch of the Float Wings coincides with Drowning Prevention Week 14-24 June, an annual campaign spearheaded by the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS UK). Drowning is the leading cause of child accidental death and over 700 people drown in the UK and Ireland every year, with over a third of accidental drownings occurring in summer.
