This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in June of 2018. With over 2,000 children rushed to the emergency room each year due to drowning incidents, it is important that you don't put your little ones in the water without the proper assistance. These floaties will get your kids comfortable in the pool or ocean while keeping them safer, so they can warm up to the idea of swimming lessons. They aren't a replacement for vigilant adult supervision, though. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
