What you should consider before buying a bath animal for children

Before you decide which bath animal to buy for your child, there are several things you should take into consideration. The size of the bath is probably the most important. A large bath animal seems like a fun idea, and will definitely be a hit to play with, for several children at once. But remember that a big bath animal also needs to be inflated, and that can take time. For really big bath animals, you may need a pump. A small bathing animal is quick and easy to inflate, but may not offer the same opportunities for play.

A bath ring - for both adults and children

A bath ring is also a good option, as its function is similar to that of a bath animal. A bathing ring is - as the word suggests - simply a ring that you can put around your waist when you go swimming. This allows you to splash around with your feet, while being held up by the bathing ring. A bathing ring is a more versatile solution that also appeals to slightly older children or adults. Bath rings are available in many sizes.

When buying a bath animal, it is a good idea to read the product description and check that the bath animal is free of phthalates and other undesirable substances.

A beach animal is handy for the beach or pool

To make playing in the water really fun for children and adults, a fun bathing animal or bathing ring is a great way to go swimming when you're at the beach. A bathing suit also provides safety when the child is bathing, as it works well to hold on to and more easily stay afloat. In addition, it is easier for parents to keep an eye on their child at all times when they have a large bathing animal with them. A good tip is to tie a string in the bathing animal which also sticks to the child. This avoids the dangerous situation where a child chases its bathing animal out to sea and ends up getting too far out.

Bathing wings or life jacket as alternative or supplement

To keep children extra safe when swimming, you can buy a life jacket or wings, either as an alternative to the bathing suit or as a supplement if you want to take all your equipment to the beach. Of course, even if your child has the right swimming gear with them, it's still good to keep a constant eye on them. That's why it's also a good idea to buy a brightly coloured swimsuit or wings, so that children can be easily spotted among the many other bathers.
