As per consensus, go for foam ones for little ones.

My suggestion is only go for auto-inflate type once they are water and boat-confident and good swimmers - maybe 7/8 +.

We have the Baltic type in stock if you're still looking to purchase.

I would agree with the solid foam, good collar & crotch-strap design.

I have 2 of the Crewsaver for 2-4 year olds (3 years old little used) that my 2 have gown out of. PM me if you're interested.
