Introducing the Konfidence 2017 Child Swimologists

Introducing the Konfidence 2017 Child Swimologists
28 April 2017 690 Views No comments

For Konfidence this year it's all about the "Summer of the Swim Jacket", and our aim is to promote the benefits of The Original Konfidence Swim Jacket to parents going away on holiday this summer to the beach or the pool with their children. Core to Konfidence's ethos is an old saying called 'Swimology' – "You may study all the '-ologies' of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless."

"Fundamentally, learning to swim is a key life skill. We want our products to give young children the confidence to learn to swim safely, and to give them the freedom to enjoy playing in the water on holiday or for leisure at their local pool, with parents, family and friends."

To help us on this journey, and as part of our Swimology Ambassador programme, we've teamed up with five leading parenting bloggers who all have children aged 2 to 4 years. Our fab five will be road-testing our learn to swim products in a fun, friendly environment at Alton Towers Resort's Splash Landings Waterpark and while on their own travels this summer. They will also be taking part in and supporting our 2017 Golden Bucket Sand Art Competition, which promotes fun family time at the beach, when it launches in July.

So, without further ado, let's introduce our 2017 Child Swimologists!

Plutonium Sox

Plutonium Sox is a family, travel and lifestyle blog. Natalie and her daughters Libby and Lia all love being outdoors. The whole family is very active, and swimming has always been a big part of their lives. They are already huge fans of Konfidence products and look forward to trying out some more this year.


Raising the Rings

Jade from Raising the Rings is a West Norfolk mum to two beautiful boys, Toby and Teddy. Here's what she says about the blog: "We love to get outdoors, do puzzles and bake. I first started blogging after I had Toby, but have recently delved (ever so slightly) into the world of vlogging. I want to share our moments, adventures and life with people to both inspire and be inspired. Toby and Teddy are both huge water babies and love getting wet, especially in the garden in the summer!"


The DADventurer

Dave is a blogger, vlogger, podcaster and stay-at-home dad to his 2.5-year-old daughter, Toddler L. Under the alias The DADventurer, Dave shares his experiences, thoughts and random musings about life as a stay-at-home dad in an honest, lighthearted and often excessively sweary way! The pair have been doing swimming lessons with Water Babies for the last two years – Dave can now almost swim 10 metres unaided as a result! The DADventurer is also the #2 UK dad blog.


Hayley's Little Things

Hayley from Hayley's Little Things is a working mum of two – Daisy, who is soon to be 3, and Alex, who is 9 months old. She says: "I document our day-to-day loves over on our blog and share our adventures and travels. Both babies have been swimming since they were just 8 weeks old and love the water." Hayley is really passionate about getting children swimming from an early age and ensuring that they feel safe in the water. "It is one activity that I love to do not only for fun, but for ensuring that they gain the life skills needed to be safe in and around water," she adds.


Budding Smiles

Hannah is happily married to Phil and proud mum to Toby and Martha. A blogger at Budding Smiles since 2014, Hannah writes about family life and adventures alongside also running her own parent, baby and toddler shop. Hannah is a rock music lover, a Spurs fan, a country bumpkin and a keen traveller who wants to show Toby and Martha all of the amazing things the world has to offer.
