  • They look so fashionable, I bet quite a few parents have bought these! Lucky the dangers are found and reported so recalls can gappen


  • Depending on the size of the child the largest vest may fit a 9 – 10 year old.
    Many children are fairly confident swimmers by that age if they started in the baby classes. Some wear vests for swimming as safety, not necessarily going out in boats.


  • Thanks for the update.


  • Thanks for sharing.


  • So is this an actual life vest for use on a boat or just a vest to wear swimming? Because if its just for swimming you should be within arms reach at all times anyway. If its a proper life vest then its a shocking failure of standards.


  • Thank you for the information. I always forward recall info to my mum friends.


  • That’s a real concern. Thanks for the update. Very worrying.


  • Thanks so much for sharing and making us all aware.


  • I’d believe it. I saw a child wearing this at the pool before Christmas and it did not look like it was doing its job, especially compared to her younger siblings vest (different brand and type). Don’t think it helped with the childs fear of the water either


  • Unbelievable! How did this product end up in the market then? It completely misses its purpose!
