- Kids swimming goggles
Can anybody recommend a decent pair of goggles for a 4 year old?Posted 4 years ago
A pair that don’t fill up with water when submerged.
Son has gone backwards in learning to swim, once he loved it now he makes excuses not to go.
Am I just not adjusting them properly or are they all shit?
Most of the time those “zoggs” goggles for kids are pretty sh*t with their adjustable nose bridge and terrible suction over the eyes, so i would reccomend some slazenger kids goggles found in sports direct.Posted 4 years ago
These are probably the best and will last a long time.
I got speedo ones for mine, easy on/off due to simple button type adjuster that even the little ones manage.Posted 4 years ago
Had great pair from Decathlon. Just the basic kids pair after having a similar mare with previous, I think zoggsPosted 4 years ago
Plus 1 for Decathlon. They have a good choice of kids’ goggles in store so you can find a pair that fit.Posted 4 years ago
As with all decent sports kit for kids questions, Decathlon is usually the correct answer.Posted 4 years ago
My son has had numerous pairs from the local swimming baths (mostly due to me losing them) which I think have all been Zoggs and I don’t recall a single set having an adjustable nose bridge. He absolutely loves going underwater and never seems to struggle with leaks.Posted 4 years ago
yeah my kids have both speedo and zoggs, both good and work.Posted 4 years ago
Teach him to go without. Goggles seem almost mandatory these days whereas learning without will be better for his confidence in water in general.Posted 4 years ago
Zoggs have been great for my daughter. She is on her second pair now after growing out of the first ones. No leaks and no fogging which was my bugbare when wearing goggles as a kid. We bought the most expensive pair the baths had and they were still only £10 so hardly expensive either.Posted 4 years ago
Some of the other kids seem to be constantly messing with their other brands, emptying them out or look like they have just been in a sauna.
Mask style worked well. The others were just to fiddly early on..Posted 4 years ago
These work well for ours and the hologram eyes are awesome and might be encouraging for the wee one. Zoggs Sea Demon gogglesPosted 4 years ago
we have some from a brand called aqua sphere. They have a soft mask type seal rather than the shove into the eye socket style pictured above
Our eldest has been using since he was 3 and I have a grown up set.Posted 4 years ago

Some swimming goggles fit and some don’t and it’s nothing to do with how much money you spend on them. It depends on the shape or your head and eye sockets – you’ve just got to find the pair that fits you. I’ve got a £25 pair I use for open water swimming but my favourites are a pair of Zoggs Otters that cost £4 at the local pool. See if you can try a few pairs on before buying and you might have a better chance of them not leaking.Posted 4 years ago

Like I mentioned in the 1st post, we are going backwards

He used to be fine with out goggles, he wanted them as all the others had them. I dont want to hold him back learning by getting him back to not using goggles.Posted 4 years ago
