My daughter had to have tubes in her ears, and I was given one pair of these to keep her ears dry during bath time, swimming, and anytime she would be subjected to having her ears under the water. They are really great, moldable ear plugs and fit really well into the ear. They get dirty really easily, so you wind up buying more than you think you will, but at an affordable price. My daughter likes to pick which color she is going to use each night, and it almost turns something you think will be horrible into a game. She has never once had water in her ear while using these (we also have the foam headband for swimming in the pool) and I would recommend them to anyone.

Love the size, the colors, the fact that it floats and you can find it, but no worries there--because it just won't come out of their ear. And I mean that literally! It is hard to 'unstick' to the point where you have to dig a little and it leaves a little residue. If it gets in hair, it's a mess, so put that hair in a pony tail first! I recommend it because I am a weekly/daily swimmer, and these last a long time....they still work even when they are months old and begin to smell (time for new ones).

AWESOME EAR PLUGS!! My 3 year old had recurrent ear infections and also surgery for ear tubes. I had purchased what I thought were putty like ear plugs, but they would never stay in!! These are great. For my 3 year old I take 1 ear plug break it in half, roll into a cone shape and firmly press into ear. I cannot recommend these enough! I myself am a healthcare professional; these are the real deal. If you are searching for ear plugs for kids-these are the best!!

This deserves no stars.
I bought this for my grandkids to use when they go swimming. The other day my daughter-Inlaw told me that she put them in my granddaughters ear and she is 4 yrs old. In one ear one of them totally fell apart in her ear. It is inside her ear so far that she took her to the ER and they could not get it. Took her to urgent care they could not , then to ENT and she has to be put to sleep for them to get it out of her ear.
Now contacting the main company to figure out what they can do about it.
Just a warning for anyone else.

I use these to protect my daughter's ears from noise while we are working around loud equipment on the farm. They stay in place and do not seem to irritate her. The bright color makes them easy to find if they fall out (which rarely happens).

My 3 year old son started swim lessons for the first time and hated laying on his back in the pool. A friend suggested trying ear plugs because some kids don't like the way water feels in their ears. I ordered these after looking everywhere and reading the reviews. So far these have worked awesome! They are very easy to use. You simply squish around the ear plug in your fingers until it is soft and easily pliable and then you roll it into a ball and basically smoosh it into the ear. As you smoosh it it will end up covering the inner part of the ear making it a water proof seal. To get them out you simply pull up on the ear slightly and pull out. It comes out in one piece and you can store them in the container it comes with. We have used the same ones for about 8 swim sessions now and they still work perfect. My son has no problem laying on his back and swimming now. I would recommend these to anyone looking for ear plugs for the water.

We purchased this product because the package stated that they were doctor recommended for children with ear tubes. Yesterday, my grandson used these ear plugs for the first time, as he spent time with his brother in a wading pool. When drying him off after he finished, he said, "I can't get my ear plug out." It turned out that the ear plug in his left ear had partially disintegrated. We slowly had to take each tiny piece out, which wasn't easy. After we'd done so, we noted that the red dye in the product had stained the inside of his ear. We don't know if any harm was done to his ear, but the doctor will have to determine that. I've sent a message to the company about this incident.

My daughter has holes in her eardrums due to having ear tubes for several years. She is unable to get water in her ears. These earplugs are by far the best we have ever used. They make a great seal in the ear canal and stay firmly in place. They truly are a putty material rather than a silicone. We have been using these for years.
