Your description is a bit lacking - and I can't find them on the website - but I assume you're talking about swimming pool armbands?

I'm all for a bargain, but would you trust your child's life to a couple of these?

What age child we talking about? 0-6? wouldnt you be at there side at all times? 6-9? Im sure the same applies and to save my self going through all the years, Swimming pools generally have life guards, But i appreciate you parental awareness......but heat added from me.

Disagree with poster. A child in armbands should be accompanied by an adult.

Got my 7 month old a pair from amazon for about £6.50. Do you really want to scrimp on these things when they are poor quality and could scratch your babies arms?

I'm not suggesting for one second that an adult should NOT be present,

But children in difficulties have been known to drown, despite the presence of adults - and life guards.

A panicking child surrounded by panicking adults and incompetetent lifeguards is not a noghtmare I'd go looking for.

And it reminds me of a very old joke:

"Do you trust me son?"
"Yes, Daddy"
"OK - climb up on the mantelpiece and jump - I'll catch you"
[child climbs, and jumps}
S P L A T T - breaks nose and three teeth.
"Daddy, you didn't catch me!"
"That'll teach you - never trust anyone, not even your father"

New version:

"Do you trust me son?"
"Yes, Daddy"
"OK - put on these 59p armbands, and jump in the pool - I'll be here for you ..."

You want a child who will never trust you again? - get one for £1.18

Kids deserve better parents!

These are a great price. Personally I would put a very young child in a swim seat. These are perfect for my 4 year old who can swim around happily in these. My 7 year old can swim pretty much on her own already. Armbands are armbands why pay a fortune?

BTW - I bought an inflatable seagull

I KNOW how useless these things are.

These armbands in B&M are Disney character ones and they are FAB! Your child will love them, they also have the rings.

(As a parent, you'll be closely supervising your child in the shallow end, so get over it.)

If your neighbours call social services, don't blame me

I was in Home Bargains earlier and all arm bands were 99p not 59p

We've had a mix of expensive arm bands and cheap arm bands. We've had both puncture but the ones that lasted the least were the expensive ornage ones from the swimming baths.

We still have a 99p pair of Winnie the pooh ones which we had years ago and they seem indestructable.

The arm bands are there to support them in the water not to replace an adult, things can and will go wrong with any arm bands. So many stupid comments on here about poor parenting through cheap arm bands - you should be ashamed of yourselves for such naive comments.

Quadrille you need to get a grip and a life .

You're right "Kids deserve better parents". Those that won't panic if an armband comes off or deflates, regardless of what they have paid and whether they buy inflatable birds.

I also would like to know the cut off price for armbands that will never have a problem.
