Where can I find arm floaties that aren't inflatable?

They're a good idea and DD loves them but too many pairs keep on popping. Are there any made of light floating material that aren't useless after a little scratch? Like the stuff swim noodles are made of or something.

  • you can get ones that go around the chest and on the arms that are made of the noodle stuff, I am told you can get them from target, I'd check walmart too. We love our swim suit made of that stuff, the vest is a floatie and it hooks to the pants with locking clips, zips up the back for easy takeoff and put on.

  • I had bought a pair for my 11 year old son years ago. They are the foam type that wrap around the arm with a velcro strap. I was looking for a pair for my cousin's child and was unable to find them this year. I had gotten them at Target a few years ago

  • Walmart and Meijer both sell different kinds of flotation devices (like the arm floaties) that are good even if they get a little ding. There are chest pads, chest and arm pad combinations, etc. I would check there first. Also check out

  • We got ours at Bass Pro, or any outdoor outfitters store,or look at the local pool store. Ours are arm floaties with a chest pad and it hooks in back. They are coast gaurd certified and my kids love them. They are material and have like styrafoam padding inside.
