Frequently Asked Questions

I had NO success with these the last time I went skeet shooting. Any advice?

I don't think skeet shooting has anything to do with toddler life jackets...does it?

which size is this life jacket?

This specific type of "water wings" only come in one size, I put it on my daughter for the first time around 18-months old (about 27 pounds, 33 inches). It's meant for toddlers that can walk well, not infants. It's very adjustable, so she should be able to wear it until she's 4 or 5. Hope that helps.

What's the difference between the puddle jumper basic and the deluxe???

From what I've researched, the deluxe has a different material on it. After the ease of use of the basic puddle jumper, I fail to see any point in getting the deluxe. My son used his nearly every day for 10 days and the material never bothered him.

This item does not mention the weight specifications as the others do. The ones i've seen are for 30-50lbs. My daughter is 14 months and 23 pounds.

Yes, these are rated for sized 30-50lb class, meaning it generally fits children in that size range but not all. My daughter is 40lbs and works perfect and she loves it. Hope this helps
