Warmer days on the Pacific Coast…and lots of babies and tots enjoying their first Spring! 

Here is a design patent for loads of fun in the pool. Indeed, this is a flotation device with a sturdy mesh seat, designed to help baby become comfortable in the water while staying balanced and supported. This flotation device corresponds to Swim Step™1 introduction to water, out of three, for assistance in learning how to swim, marketed by the Swimways® at!

The baby float is sold with a removable sun canopy to protect from harmful UV rays and is available in a variety of models with, or without, surrounding activity center, and/or animal friends.

Designed to foster love of water and swimming, this float will keep your baby or toddler happy in the water!'

Below, you will find the Figure 5 drawing, a bottom up perspective on the baby float, disclosed in US design patent USD471614 titled Baby Float, and an image of one of the marketed products with a removable sun canopy!
