Fresh: Pool Cool

Inventor mom Karen Tobey of Wilmette created the Gogglemate to keep goggle straps from getting caught in her daughter’s hair.

Little did she know, the product helps everyone because it makes goggles float and the bright colors make it easy to find your kid at the pool. Plus, new colors and designs let swimmers of all ages make a fashion statement.

$7.99, at Lad & Lassie in Wilmette, Kidsnips in Deerfield, Vernon Hills, South Barrington and Wilmette, T.L. Fritts Sporting Goods in Winnetka, the Children’s Gift Shop in Northfield, Kiddles Sports in Lake Forest, and Keifer Swim Shop in Glenview.
