Lexi is my water baby – and a total Mermaid fan for as long as I can remember. From the latest mermaid movies, to mermaid earrings and a Moon ring with Mermaid – nothing has been asked form more than her very own mermaid tail – literally been asking me for YEARS! I kept putting her off because of safety concerns and cost – until I found Sun Tail Mermaid Tails! Built to not hurt their little feet and not break – I thought we’d finally give it a shot. I love that this company is multi-family owned and operated out of the USA - in Alaska actually!
The hardest part for me was choosing the tail and mono fin set that I loved the most – over 20 colors and styles to choose from. I chose the realistic “mermaid blue” mono fin and tail set to start … and will plan to get other styles and colors down the road to swap out. They even have colors that would work for both boys and girls - or they could wear the mono fin on its owns! The stand alone tails could be great for the younger mermaids … and there is also a whole line for the toddler set – that fit more like a skirt - too cute! If you wanna go all out to make your little mermaid dreams come true - they even have matching swim suits too!
I’m soo excited to have just received my package in the mail – just 2 day priorty! This surely will be the highlight Christmas gift this year!! First off, I found Mermaidtails by SunTailMermaid are cost effective – some of them can be super expensive! Second, they are swimmable – made from high quality swim suit material (80% nylon and 20% spandex) with “4-way stretch is chlorine and salt water resistant”. It feels great and you can definitely feel the stretch in the material – making it feel comfortable and snug on my skin. Since Lexi is now the size of a small adult at 12, and not much smaller than me – I was able to order the correct size by using my hip size and her height. The measuring chart on the Sun Tail website made it easy to find the right size. Since I have not yet presented this to Lexi, I couldn’t wait to take it out and try it on myself. The size is perfect and I absolutely love that the tail is open on the bottom – allowing the ability to WALK in – which addresses one of my safety concerns. Now, we won’t know how it works until we get her in the pool – but I guarantee we will be finding an indoor pool while on her Christmas school break! For those that have the concern of safety too – I think this item would be fun to just role play in around the house or on vacations at the beach! Could also make the perfect Halloween costume! I am really excited about this find and can’t wait to see the look on Lexi’s face!
