Personally, I'd buy new auto jackets for the adults & second hand PFDs for the kids. Auto jackets can be had for under £100 & they will be good for a couple of years before needing a service. If you buy second hand they will need servicing unless you can drop on some that are either nearly new or just been serviced. A service will cost you about £40 each, so by the time you've allowed for this, new looks a better deal.
