Why Zoggs’ Water Wing Vest Can Help Kids Learn To Swim 5 Times Faster

  • Toddlers

A mainstay of any kids’ learn-to-swim kit, a Water Wing Vest offers gentle (but effective!) support when little ones are getting to grips with using their arms and legs to move around in the water. 

Australia’s most popular swimming brand, Zoggs, have created a Three Stages of Development Program that aims to carry children through the early stages of learning to swim. The second stage of this intuitive program includes the use of their innovative Water Wings Vest—which gives support and security and an earlier transition into water confidence. 

Here’s what you need to know about the program and this epic learn-to-swim aid. 

An Iconic Australian Brand

Zoggs is an Aussie brand that's reputation is synonymous with safety and building water confidence!


Born in Australia on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in 1992, Zoggs know that swimming is embedded into the DNA of Aussie culture, and aim to bring confidence and assurance to kids’ learning to swim, from even the earliest age. 

Zoggs have dedicated the last 28 years to the development of swimming aids that help children build their confidence and get them in the water sooner—so to say that they know what they’re doing is an understatement!

Three Stages Of Development Program

To assist children in the early stages of swimming, Zoggs have created their Three Stages of Development program, specifically designed to help children build the necessary skills to get into the water sooner.

Stage 1 of the program is focused on laying the foundations of a positive swimming experience and introducing your child to the water while promoting a fun and enjoyable transition. Stage 2 enhances the development of your child’s swimming ability and water confidence, giving them the tools they need in order to thrive in a water-based setting. Stage 3 promotes a fun interaction with swimming and water through games and activities. Makes sense, right?
