Hey folks! If you missed out on the Baby Spring Float Activity Center review andgiveaway, I have good news! Now is your chance to read up on and enter to win another great product similar to the activity center float. Read on…
Dries off super quick!!
Swimways was kind enough to also send us a Mommy & Me Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy to try out this summer. We FINALLY had a chance to go to one of our nearby lakes recently and give this one a go.
Convenient carrying case.
I absolutely LOVED the Baby Spring Float Activity Center and this float contains many of the same great features. It has a low center of gravity so that you won’t have to worry about your little one tipping over, especially if they are squirmy! It’s also made of super durable material and has fabric covered inflation tubes so that it is less likely to get punctured or damaged. Seriously, it is SO much higher quality than the cheap plastic inflatable floats! You definitely get what you pay for with the Mommy & Me float, although it is still affordable.
There are many other features I love as well. As the name implies, this float offers a removable sun canopy, which can be used in 2 positions. This is great because too much sun for baby is a big concern amongst parents. It’s no fun being burnt as an adult, so we definitely don’t want our little ones turning into lobsters! I also like that the leg holes are nice and big because I have a chunky monkey daughter, plus it is suitable for children up to 2 years of age.
Spacious leg openings. No, this picture isn't upside down. It was just really windy!
Although this one does not come with all of the fun toys that the activity center float does, there is still plenty of room on the mesh screen between the two air bladders for baby to splash in or put toys for them to play with there. Other than that, the main defining feature between the two is the extra detachable float that mom, dad, or whoever can use to float around along with baby. Neither one is necessarily better than the other, but I will say this: If you just have a smaller, above ground inflatable pool, I would probably choose the Baby Spring Float Activity Center. If you have a large metal sided above ground pool, in-ground pool, or like to visit lakes or other large bodies of water often, I would definitely choose the Mommy & Me float.
The detachable "mommy" float snaps together easily with the main float.
I decided to use my husband as the “guinea pig” for trying out this float. He is a larger fella and very barrel-chested. I am on the large side too, so I’ll admit that I was a bit leery of how well OUR part of the float would work for us before we got it/tried it out. However, I’m happy to report that it works well even for us bigger folks, as you will see in the photos below.
