Swim rings can give young children a chance to have more fun in the water while remaining safe. Although these rings, also called water wings and inflatable armbands, are no substitute for learning how to swim, they work well for playing in the water. The inflatable rings wrap securely around the child’s upper arms, helping them float and keep their head above water. Many swim rings can be adjusted for different levels of buoyancy. For a child who is unfamiliar with the water, use maximum inflation and buoyancy. As the child gains more experience and strength, you may be able to reduce the amount of inflation.
