Mermaid Tails are the biggest hit for the summer and if you are raising a girl between the ages of 4-12, chances are they are probably asking for a one. When my daughter, Mollie, first asked for a Mermaid Tail I totally dismissed the request and told her that she was crazy. But she was obsessed! After watching a ton of Mermaid youtube videos, my 7 year old was not giving up! I told her she had two options to either save her own money and purchase that herself or to ask for it as a gift.
Well, she went right to her grandparents and that was her Kindergarten graduation gift. She can’t wait to get back into the Mermaid tail this summer!
Say Yes to the Mermaid Tail.. and get one for yourself!
It was an exciting day when the Fin Fun Mermaid Tail arrived and of course, she had to try it on! She wore the tail around the house and was anxiously awaiting the moment she could jump in the pool and become a mermaid. I am excited to take some pictures this year with my new underwater camera, but we did get some nice pictures above water.
Rules when wearing Mermaid Tail!
- The Fin Fun Mermaid Tail can only be worn with an adult present. This is so important since it can be difficult at first to swim.
- Put a time limit on the Fin Fun Mermaid Tail. Swimming as a mermaid takes a lot of energy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great exercise for kids, but they can get very tired from using the fin. I actually get a little claustrophobic thinking about it, but Mollie has no problem with it and would probably swim all day with it on. I just feel like she needs to break.
- The last rule was that she had to take care of the Mermaid Tail after getting out of the pool. That means not leaving it around the side of the pool and taking out the fin to wash.
The mermaid tail is so cool, I totally would have loved this as a kid. Jaxon even liked trying on the Mermaid Tail. Did you know they sell adult mermaid tails! They even have adult mermaid workout classes, which are probably an awesome workout!
Details about Fin Fun Mermaid Tail
There are lot of discounted mermaid tails, but the reviews are not very good. Although there is some sticker shock, the Fin Fun Mermaid Tail has the best reviews. The mermaid tail comes in a variety of colors and sizes ranging from toddler to adult. Keep in mind that that you will also need the Fin Fun Mermaid Monofin or you can’t really swim like a mermaid. The price is $79.95 -$114.95 for both and I know it sounds crazy, but it’s totally worth the price. Be careful that it does not run on the bottom of the pool because the fabric is bathing suit material and can rip easily. My daughter is 7 and wears a size 10.
