My daughter fits perfect in this float. It's well worth the money. It is non inflatable, which saves the parents from having to blow it up all the time. Very sturdy. Make sure you have the extra float for there knee area, as it does help with them not flipping over. I love that where you clip them in, there's a cover that clips over the button, so they can't accidentally open it. She didn't use the canopy yet, but it will be perfect when it's really sunny out. The matetial on the outside is very soft. The inside is protected by water proof covering as well. This float eases your worries of your child not being safe in the water. Don't hesitate to buy one for the summer, you won't regret it !
