Good but not great

Good flexible product. Used for 2 weeks in a swimming pool. Flexible and good bounancy with our without the arm bands. Only issue in the belt gets a little twisted and the inside of the belt moved around a little inside the sleeve making it hard to inflate.

Armbands are Great, Body Bit Is Not

The armbands are great but I found the body section to be quite dangerous for my two year old as it floats upward, tipping her body backwards. Wish I had saved the money and just bought the arm bands alone. Great that they are fabric on the inside.

Really good

Fantastic for both children

We have really struggled to find something that works for our 3yr old daughter who very slim due to her premature birth. Nothing worked until this. She was floating alone almost instantly where she never had before. Her 16month brother loved it too. Highly recommended

Excellent

Bought this for our little one who’s 2 and just getting into swimming for himself. He found this really useful but we also tried it with our 4yr old and the independence it gave him was amazing.

Brilliant!! Great Price!!

Fantastic swimming aid! We have tried more expensive swimming aids with no joy. First go with this and our little one was swimming across the pool on her own at just 2 years old! Would highly recommend!

Great product

These are a great alternative to boring orange armband's, with the added flexibility of being able to seperate to allow different skills to be practiced. Not material is good too, not shiny plastic so more comfortable, but still quick drying.

Learning to swim encourages the psycho-motor development of young kids:

Nabaiji offers 3 Learning to Swim experiences: Discovering the water, learning to swim, and discovering underwater. Appropriate products are offered for each experience. The Tiswim adjustable armbands-waistband is part of the “Discovering Water” experience. Its adaptability makes it possible to support the kid through their water discovery with a buoyancy level that reduces in accordance with their progress and helps them to discover different positions in the water.

Why use adjustable armbands?

Because it is often difficult to find the right buoyancy aid for a kid, to anticipate their level of comfort and confidence in the water, Nabaiji has developed the Tiswim armbands-waistbands. This adjustable armband-waistband's modular design allows kids to discover the joys of playing in the water, moving, and learning the 1st swimming movements in complete safety.

What are the 3 ways of using the tiswim?

Step 1/ To start with, the Tiswim is used with all of its materials (armbands on the arms and the waistband on the front). Step 2/ Use just the armbands to start with moving in the water in a vertical position. Step 3/ Use just the waistband, positioned at the back, to allow kids to discover the swimming position (horizontal) and their 1st swim strokes.

How does the valve work on these swimming armbands-waistbands?

The Tiswim adjustable armbands-belt have PVC 1-way inflation valves. To inflate the product correctly, press the base of the valve to open it. The valve closes mechanically in about 2 seconds. As such, it is normal for a bit of air to escape after inflation. This is why you must close the cap quickly.

How to adjust the belt in the front position

Place the front section on the upper part of the belly, so that the belt wraps around the lower part of the kid's chest. Tighten normally, then inflate the front section directly on the kid, without over-inflating it. The belt will then be perfectly suited to the kid's size.

How to avoid the risk of rash / irritation due to friction with buoyancy aids

The skin of young kids is very fragile. Depending on a kid's activity level and duration of the sessions in the water, personal flotation devices can cause chafing of the skin. To prevent this discomfort, we recommend wearing a top underneath the Tiswim adjustable armbands.

Where should you position the belt in the front position?

The waistband should be positioned at the top of the torso. Be careful not to position the belt on the kid's chest, as this would make it too high and poorly held in place. Place it in a low position so that the buoyant part is pressed against the lower part of their chest.

How much should you inflate the different parts of the tiswim?

The different learning stages have slightly different inflation requirements. The armbands should always be inflated to the maximum. However, you should ideally inflate the 2nd chamber directly on the kid's arm. The inflation of the belt in the front position should be adjusted to the kid's size. The belt in the back position should be inflated normally, without overinflating, before being put in position.

How can you adjust the inflation of the front section to the kid?

As each person is different, it is possible to adjust the inflation of the front section of the Tiswim to suit a kid's body shape. First, tighten the belt directly on the kid without having inflated the front section, so that it is perfectly adjusted to the kid's size. Then inflate the front section while the kid is wearing the belt.

Why does the belly part come up to the kid's chin when you use the full product?

In most cases, this is because the front section is over-inflated or the belt is poorly positioned. Make sure the belt is properly positioned on the kid's upper abdomen. Adjust the inflation and tightening of the belly section to fit the kid so that the product does not ride up once they're in the water. If the product rises too high, it may cause friction under the chin, which can irritate kids' skin

Why do kids end up on their backs?

If the kid tips backward, it's because the volume of the front section is not suited to their size. It is important to remember that to be able to use the progressive armbands, a kid's motor skills and muscle tone must be sufficiently developed so that they can keep their balance and keep their head up on land. However, if the kid still tips backward, do not hesitate to adjust the inflation of the front section to their size so that they can regain their balance.

Can kids fall forward?

No, if the armbands are properly fitted, kids won't be able to fall forward. It is important to remember that in order to use the adjustable armbands, a kid's motor skills and muscle tone must be sufficiently developed so that they can keep their balance and their head straight when out of the water. However, if the kid moves around a lot and is on the smaller side, adjust the inflation of the front section so that they are a little more submerged at chest level.

How to adjust the belt in the back position

In the third stage, kids can discover the horizontal position in the water with the belt on their back. To do this, fully inflate the back section, without over-inflating it, then position the belt around the kid's waist and tighten normally. Be sure to position the protective tabs under the straps to make them more comfortable.

Can kids jump in the water wearing the tiswim?

Yes, but be careful! If the set is properly fitted, kids can jump in the water without it rubbing under their chin or arms. But beware of the height; since the armbands are a buoyancy aid, do not try to jump from a height higher than that of the kid. If the entire product is worn and the kid is jumping into the water without a care, try removing the front section to give them more freedom of movement.

Can kids wear the tiswim progressive armbands if they weigh less than 33 lbs?

No, the Tiswim adjustable armbands-waistband is designed for kids between 33 and 66 lbs for safety reasons. Below this, the armbands would be too bulky to allow the kid to move comfortably. They will no longer be able to control their movements and could therefore easily tip forward or backward and have difficulty straightening up. Be sure to comply with the indicated weight. The kid's size also makes an impact when choosing the product.

What if the product deflates when you inflate it?

There could be a valve malfunction. The valve is not closing normally. Too much air is escaping before the cap is closed. To replace it correctly, pinch the valve 2 or 3 times with your fingers, then inflate the product to the maximum and close the cap. The flap should reposition itself properly.

Recommendations for use

After use, rinse your product and do not leave it in direct sunlight. It is strongly advised not to machine-wash the Tiswim, as this would risk damaging the seams of the product and consequently affect its safety. Hand-washing is preferred, followed by patting down the armbands-waistband in a towel.
