The fun lasts longer for kids in the water with a Stearns® Puddle Jumper® Bahamas 3D Life Jacket. The premium construction is made from woven polyester, a softer fabric for less chafing. The comfortable design also allows children 13.6 kg.-22.7 kg. to move and swim freely in pools and lakes and at the beach, without the life jacket riding up around their necks. VIDEO
The US Coast Guard-approved life jacket features a fun character on the front for more fun in the water. The life jacket can also be used as a learn-to-swim aid.
William P. Hilger started what would become Stearns, Inc. among the lakes and plains of central Minnesota. His first successful product was an electrically powered windshield heater that was a big hit in the colder climates of central Minnesota in the late 1920's, and eventually was a must-have product for cars from California to Maine. The company changed hands after World War II and became Stearns Manufacturing Company. The heating systems in cars had matured to the point where, anymore, the idea of needing a frost shield was old-fashioned. The business then turned towards the future: Plastics.
