Toddler Classic SWIMTRAINER Float System

My son has always been a water baby. Since the day we brought him home from the hospital he has loved baths and it has always been a way for us to calm him down when nothing else will do the trick. So, naturally he loves to swim in the summers. This summer we’ve been fortunate enough to have the SWIMTRAINER. The SWIMTRAINER is a very handy floaty for babies, toddlers and even younger kids who are learning to swim.

The SWIMTRAINER is different from your average floaty, though. The entire device, including the straps, is inflatable to help keep your child afloat. This floaty has a center that supports the child’s midsection, and puts them in the swimming position to aid in their learning to swim. These features along with clasps all help secure the child further and prevent them from slipping off the floaty.

>>Ideal swimming position in the water
>>Fast and easy to put on with clip fastener
>>Inflatable pads to prevent slipping through
>>Adjustable safety belt to prevent tipping forwards

The swim trainer is super easy to use. It doesn’t take long to inflate it, usually I am horrible at blowing up pool floaties (I guess I’m not so full of hot air), but this one blew up in a cinch. You simply put your child’s head through the inflated straps, fasten the clips at the back:

My son really enjoyed being able to float around on the SWIMTRAINER, like I said he loves the water and was totally content in this floaty the entire time we were at the pool.

Empire Patio Furniture Covers Review and Giveaway

We love to use our outdoor grill, as a matter of fact this spring we’ve been using it approximately 3-5 times a week. Until recently we haven’t had a cover for it, it has just been left in the weather, not a good idea considering how much we love that thing. Now we are protecting our beloved bbq grill with a heavy duty cover from Empire Patio Covers. Empire Patio Covers has a variety of patio furniture covers. Covers for seating, tables, accessories and pet travel can be found in different sizes and 3 different color collections. They use durable, eco-friendly materials for their signature material covers and give a 1-2 year warranty on their items. All of their covers are UV treated, water proof and either vented or breathable to prevent mold and mildew.

I love that they have gust guards available, as well. The gust guards hold the covers in place and prevent them from blowing off your patio furniture, a very handy accessory to have.

Currently you can save 15% on your total patio furniture cover order! Just use coupon code SPR15, when checking out on their website.
