Name-it Contest - November 16
Hi folks! I have been living in China for a while and this is a very common accessory around here. Hope you have fun giving it a proper name.

In Chinese itīs a KEYHEWA = keep your head above the water

保持 头以上 水 

P.S. Chinese members will certainly laugh their heads off when they see what I tried to figure out for: keep - head - above - water. I hope I didnīt do anything queer. No offense, I do apologize in advance...

Sorry guys. This is NOT the caption contest. This game is about inventing a NAME for the item you see.

It īs a flottilum-bab. The plural is flottila-bab. They keep babies afloat.

I don īt really know.
a "swim ring" is the standard name for bigger ones; so I guess "a swim ring for babies ī necks" or "a floating head ring" --I am sure there is no one name for it--you wil have to describe it in as few words as possible.
 Other (bizarre) options: "baby neck ring", "neck floatie", ??

Depending on how much these kids pee, I figured it īs called water. Or was it cold water???
