Holiday Wish List: Magical Mermaids

My girls are obsessed with mermaids. They love pretending to be mermaids in the bathtub and drawing them on every piece of paper they can find. So they were more than a little excited to meet and try Zuru Toys Magical Mermaid.

Magical Mermaids

These little mermaids are about the size of some of their favorite princess toys {you know the ones that are conveniently located at the checkout lanes}.  They are big enough that my 3 year old can hold and play with them but not like having a Barbie in the tub. Magical Mermaids come in four colors, each with their own magical mermaid name, a bonus when you have more than one child.

The magic happens in the water. Magical Mermaid uses Micro-Robot technology to allow the mermaids to swim through the water. A little shake and once they hit the water they float, bob, weave, and swim. We have other swimming dolls that have never worked well enough to qualify as “swimming”. The mermaids legitimately swim through the tub. They come with weights you attach to their tails to allow you to change how they move through the water. My seven-year old is obsessed. She has already asked for the water wonderland play set so she can play with her outside the tub.

There are small parts so these are not intended for children under 3.  The mermaids come with the necessary 2 button batteries and with two replacements. Magical Mermaids are available this fall at CVS, KMart, Wal-Mart and Toys R Us stores.

They will be on every girls wish list this holiday season and will make a great stocking stuffer!


*Disclosure: we relieved two magical mermaids to facilitate this review, no other compensation was received.
