I've got a couple of henrilloyd foam ones. I think the most important thing is the harness that goes around the crotch as they can easily slip up over the head.

We supply the Baltic padded type. I'd only suggest this type (regardless of maker) for a 2 year old and probably also a 6 year old.
Available here 23.95 for toddler size, 24.95 for child. Delivery 2.50 if you give me a call. In stock - can be delivered in time for w/e.

The auto-inflate children's ones are OK for older ones - 8-10+. They are a good safe product but you need to consider the remote possibility of the auto-release not working and the child being confident enough to pull the manual release. Just not an issue with the foam type.
