The Wiggles and Libby Trickett team up to promote water safety this summer.
Posted on Wednesday 01 Oct 2014
The Wiggles are joining forces with Olympic champion Libby Trickett and SwimFin Australia, to support keeping children safe in the water this summer.
The Wiggles and SwimFin Australia have produced a series of videos aimed at children and their parents. They include 5 key safety messages and a catchy tune, "Swim Like a Fish", to drive home the importance of being safe around water.
A large part of being safe in the water is learning to swim and Libby is recommending the use of SwimFin, the unique, self-adjusting swimming aid for all sizes and abilities and for anyone aged 2 and above. Libby, who is a SwimFin ambassador in Australia and New Zealand, is passionate about children being safe and confident in the water as they learn to swim, and believes SwimFin gives them that.
"I'm so excited that SwimFin Australia is partnering with The Wiggles this summer," says Libby. "With drowning the leading cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia, it's so important to educate children and their parents and carers on water safety. Having The Wiggles involved means we can get the message across to young children in a fun way."
"It's a real delight to be working with the legendary Libby Trickett and SwimFin Australia to promote water safety. Australians love their beaches and pools and we fully endorse teaching children to be safe around water from an early age," said Blue Wiggle Anthony Field.
