Swim goggles for a small 6yr
toomanyhobbies · 07/09/2019 09:55
Hi my 5 nearly 6yr old ds needs some goggles for swimming this week as they are practicing breathing.
Now he doesn’t really like wearing them and the pairs we have tried so far seem to let water in. I think the problem is that he has a small head and eyes so the nose bit doesn’t sit right and let’s warer in. Has anyone got any suggestions of a good pair of goggles for kids would love to get them for tomorrow, realise I’ve left it late.
I can get to Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Argos, sports direct, home bargains, b&m. Also have amazon prime (know they won’t arrive in time.

We moved away from traditional goggles, and have used masks for years.
This sort of thing. Weve always got from Amazon, but saw them at our local pool once we moved, so the pool is another place to look.

Go for the bigger ones that look more like face masks - we’ve had quite a few of the Aquasphere kids ones (via Amazon) and they’ve worked much better than the traditional style. They fit my 8yo who is still wearing an age 3-6 sunhat, so they should fit an 6yo.

Decathlon has one of each type out so you can try them and feel how well they stick to your face (ie won't let water in).
Otherwise my DS2 (9) is on his 3rd pair of Zoggs sea demon googles (worn out not lost).
