Better to put them in "waterski" type vests that are more comfy, and available in bright colors with their favorite heros or cartoon characters on them. At least you KNOW that will still work, no matter what the kids get into.
the only (and big) problem with ski vests is they won't turn the kid face up. necessary for little kids.
