What is it
These swimming pool balls come in a set of 4, with each featuring a uniquely characterful design that’s exclusive to Water Babies. You can even add these swim balls to your baby’s bath toy collection to bring all the fun of their Water Babies swimming lessons home; the perfect sensory water play activity for little ones.
They come in a handy re-usable bag to store the balls but can also store any toys due to the drawstring at the bottom.

What our experts think
These swim balls are great for encouraging swimming and building little ones’ confidence in the water, whether that is in the pool or at bath time. The thick rubber material is durable but still easy for little hands to grab and squish.
Our testers found that the balls floated really well, which was ideal for getting children to move their arms as they push and pass the ball above and below water level. This builds their muscles and develops their hand-eye coordination – perfect for preparing them to begin the movements for front crawl. Parents particularly liked that water can’t get inside, which keeps them safe and bacteria-free for little ones.
