The perfect swimming aid for your little one. The tube is fitted with a sleeve that can be removed. This sleeve assists the little one from tipping over. When the child is in the region of 2 and a half years old, the sleeve can be removed and used with the tube vest only. I have twins, of which the boy, Stefan, is disabled, even he can float with this tjoopie without tipping over. My little girl, Nicola, can slide on supertubes and lands in the water without tipping over. Nicola is now 3 years old and swims with the vest tube only. It also is great to let both of my twins swim with me, they float around and I do not have to worry about them tipping over. This device will most certainly add value and allow your little one to have fun in the water while being safe.
