Out of 10 children's lifejackets tested, 
the Swedish magazine "Vi Föräldrar" 
recommends the Plastimo Baby lifejacket: 

"Turns fast and steadily on back position. Good quality buckles, easy to attach. Large collar holds the child's head well out of the water. Efficient grab handle. The child's parents were very positive about this lifejacket."

       
Test carried out by children in the presence of parents and journalists.
11 different models were tested.

"By far, the best one was Plastimo's : the inflation was the least violent and the overall tailoring of the bag was much better.   
(...) 
Children found the Plastimo lifejacket easy to put on and to swim in. Their mum noticed that Alex wasn't tipped forwards by the Plastimo as he had been by some of the others. She liked the big grab handle on the back too."

Practical Boat Owner - March2001
Plastimo advises the use of an inflatable lifejacket by a child only if he can swim and is old enough to understand that the jacket must be ready to use in an emergency, and must only be inflated if such a situation arises. Therefore, Plastimo strongly recommends the use of a traditional foam-type lifejacket for very young children.
