These gorgeous mermaid princesses are hand-crafted with love by a wonderfully talented artist-writer friend who sent LP one.
When our Little Princess opened the box, I could practically hear her heart pounding. LP clasped the wee ‘Maid her little chest and said:
“Oh Mama! This is so special to me!” And they really are that amazingly special.
I am hanging hers over her bed as a princess-mermaid dream catcher to ensure only lovely, pink, mermaid-y, princess-y dreams. Princess Mermaid, $18 at Etsy.
Our Little Princess is nuts about this. She brings it in the bath every night and demands I put Barbie’s pink-streaked hair into a pony tail. This has prompted our LP to want pink hair (not sure if that’s a good thing).
The tail doesn’t actually “Move like she’s swimming” as it says in the ad, but if you squeeze Barbie’s hips, she flaps her tail. Little P’s hands aren’t strong enough, but when I do it, LP goes “ooooh!” The tiara comes off and goodness help you if you lose it… All in all a good investment.
