Swimways Review and Giveaway





Summer is in full swing and the Crazy House kids have been spending a ton of time outside.  Between baseball, swimming and the waterslide, the kids spend the majority of their day outdoors. Swimming with the kids has been a challenge with a new baby so I was so excited to get to do a review for Swimways and one of their other companies, Kelsyus!!!!

We received the Baby Spring Float w/ a Sun Canopy in the rainy day duck pattern and it made a big splash with us! It made a day in the pool so much more enjoyable because I didn't have to hold the baby the entire time and he was so relaxed in the float!!!  This is a part of Swimways Step 1 Swim program which is water introduction!  It is so worth every penny of the $24.95 that it retails for.  I loved the mesh around it because we were able to put the babies toys around it for him to play with in the pool!  You can also adjust the canopy to wherever it is needed to keep the Sun off of baby!



The Baby Spring Float was so simple to put together too! I took it out of the package and it sprang to full size immediately. It took about 2 minutes to blow both parts up and another minute to attach the canopy and then we were ready to go!  When we got done swimming, I miraculously got it to fold back to it's original size the first time I tried and for the first time, actually got it back into it's original packaging!!!  This was ideal because the package comes with a carry strap so I  can store it until we are ready to use it and then carry it with us without having to bring a big float along.

The other product we received was the Kids Canopy Chair from Kelsyus.  Our oldest son plays a lot of baseball so we are always dragging chairs along for us and the other kids to sit in and this chair is PERFECT for our 5 year old while we are out and about! 



He impressed me so much because he got this out of the package and all set up by himself and when it was time to go, he folded it back up by himself too!  A Mom can't ask for anything more than that!  After we got home he realized that it has straps on the back so he can wear it like a backpack so he doesn't even have to carry it!! Definitely a must have especially if you are outdoors a lot!  The canopy kept him nice and cool and I didn't have to worry about the sun beating down on him.

Another great product that Swimways makes is the Spring Float!  Here is our daughter getting ready to relax on it!  This is the full size Spring Float (They make some just for kids) but she likes to lay on this one too, just like Mommy!



I just love how effortlessly these floats are to use. They spring right out to full size and then within seconds fold back down for storage.



They offer some super fun pool toys too like the Swimming Nemo and Squirt
that come alive in the water and swim around like real fish!  Kids are thrilled witih these fun toys! They can be purchased for around $15 each.

Swimways and Kelsyus both have amazing products for the outdoors!!!  Check out their websites for their complete lines of swimming and camping gear!!!

  1. Wow, my daughter would be in pool heaven with Nemo and Squirt by her side. I would love the Captiva Lounge for an afternoon of relaxing in the sun.
