What do all girls have in common? At one point in their lives, all of us have pretended to be mermaids. Whether we were in a pool, a creek, lake, or ocean. We all pretended to have a beautiful mermaid tail, with magical powers, and the ability to breathe underwater. And while the last two items aren't really possible, there is one option that can make any little girl's dreams come true; the Sun Tail Mermaid's Mermaid Tail & Monofin.
If you've never heard of the Sun Tail Mermaid company before it's a wonder multi-family owned and operated company that has perfected the production of comfortable, realistic looking, and virtually unbreakable mermaid tails and shark fins. Just like how all little children dream of one day becoming a mermaid, shark, or dolphin, the inventor of the Sun Tail Mermaid Monofin noticed a similar habit-forming with her own children. Since then Sun Tail Mermaid has gone through multiple prototypes before landing on the extremely popular Monofin design. They not only have perfected the Monofin but have created a high-quality tail that's made of soft, comfortable, high-quality swimsuit fabric.
Each tail is made with a 4-way stretch fabric for the perfect fit every time. They come in a wide variety of different colors and patterns to suit everyone's needs. And just to be sure that your tail will last, they quality control test each fabric to provide you with the best colorfastness and durability for your tails. Since their launch in 2015, they've created not only kids mermaid tails but also tails for teens and adults.
The tail style featured here is Sun Tail Mermaid's Aurora Borealis Mermaid Tail & Monofin Set. This tail style is designed after the Northern Lights with it's pretty pastels. This tail matches perfectly with their lavender and pink monofins. The coloration on the tails is so gorgeous! Pictures don't really do it justice. Each scale is beautifully detailed and once worn, the fabric stretches perfectly to give the appearance of an actual mermaid tail. It's breathtaking!
But if you really want your tail to look realistic you have to wear it with a Monofin. The Monofin is what gives the tail that actual mermaid tail shape. The Monofin featured here is the Pink Keiki Monofin. This is one of the two Monofin colors that comes with the Aurora Borealis Mermaid Tail & Monofin Set. Fun fact provided by Sun Tail Mermaid, Keiki means "child" in Hawaiian. It's pronounced kee-kee. Now the amazing part of the Monofin is it not only gives the shape of a real tail but it also doubles as a swim flipper. With a little practice, you too can swim like a real mermaid! Plus it helps to keep your feet from sliding around when you wear it with the tail.
The Monofin as made of a specially designed plastic to make them sturdy and moderately flexible. So you can actually push off of pool walls and hop around in them without the fear of breaking. And they way there are designed is to give them the appearance of realistic fish-tail like ridges. But all of that doesn't matter if they aren't comfortable. Well, Sun Tail Mermaid has thought of that as well. They've designed soft, cushioned foot pockets that comfortably separate your feet. So you won't have to worry about blisters or banging your ankles together when you're trying to swim like a majestic underwater creature.
Now don't expect to put on the Sun Tail Mermaid's Mermaid Tail & Monofin and be an expert at it. There's a little bit of a learning curve. Especially for younger kids but Sun Tail Mermaid has many great suggestions on their site for learning how to use the set. They have also provided wonderful instructions for how to care for and prolong the use of your set. I highly recommend looking it up just so you are familiar.
I love everything about this set. It's amazingly realistic and is sure to make any little girl scream for joy when opening! I wish they had amazing products like this when I was a little girl! It's a good thing it comes in adult sizes!
