Floating Aquarium / kid's swim ring

Floating Aquarium
Floating Aquarium

Till this day the underwater life forms hold their mystique since they’re well-concealed by the ocean and streams. The Floating Aquarium provides kids aging 3-7 with a safe way to explore the beauty underneath the surface. The inflatable toy consists of two rings: one to hold the child like normal swim rings; and the smaller one functions as a viewfinder.
The toy adopts the concept of swim goggles, forming a diaphragm banner between the water and the surface, in order to provide the visibility toward those fabulous submarine creatures. With the technique, kids can see right through the view-distorting waves without holding their breaths.
