Disclosure: I received a Suntail Mermaid Tail for the purpose of this review at no cost. I was not compensated for this post. All thoughts and ideas are 100% my own.
It seems like they are everywhere these days. I am not complaining , I am one of those fantasy people that wish they lived in an enchanted forest surrounded by animal friends and fairies. (true story) Ever since the world was introduced to Ariel and her adventures I have secretly wished I could done a tail and swim with underwater friends. But alas my dreams have never really came true. Until now… well sort of…

Cococa Beach, FL
Our family spent Christmas in Orlando this year… We had a BLAST! One of our stops was visiting Cocoa Beach, my absolute favorite hangout when I’m in the area. Being an Indiana native I am not exposed to the ocean very often so when I get to the beach we are in the water almost 100% of the time. I knew this was the perfect opportunity to check out the mermaid fin from SunTail and take some cool pics. #MemoriesMade.
My granddaughter Bra’Laun was the recipient of the tail and she was super excited to get it on. We found it really easy for her to get into and it fit her like a glove. She told me she felt like a “Mermaid Princess” in her tail. It was a special moment between us and neither of us will ever forget it… Thanks Suntail. Unfortunately she can’t swim yet so I’m unable to speak on the swimability of the tail, but the videos show them being extremely efficient for swimming so I’ll have to take their word on that.
Isn’t she ADORABLE? If nothing else I’m grateful for having these pictures of her looking like a mermaid.
The Mermaid Fin was super stretchy and the mono fin seemed really sturdy, I could tell the quality of the product right away and knew this was going to be something she could use over and over again without worrying about it being damaged. Let’s just say the girl is rough on stuff. So I’m glad that the fin and tail can stand up to eight year old girl abuse. I was also happy that the coloring of the tail was as vibrant as I imagined. You ever buy something online and the color is just off? We didn’t have that problem – perfect princess colors. Gravity defying tricks, laugh-along comedy for kids, and a family friendly atmosphere are just a few of the perks of attending a Harlem Globetrotters game on their current World Tour. This was actually the first time that I had ever attended one of their shows, and I have to say, it was such a fun night. There is certainly a reason they have been popular for almost 100 years- the showmanship is incredible and the athleticism is astounding. Their tour schedule includes over 300 games in the United States and Europe, so there’s sure to be one near you. On a frigid night in late December we attended the show at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Although it was freezing on the night we attended (15 degrees!), as soon as walked through the doors the vibe was warm and friendly. As a mom, the first thing I noticed was the numerous opportunities for kids to participate in the show. This is not a stay-in-your-seat event. The crowd warms up with popular music and a few jokes. With Beyonce blaring, we were dancing in our seats! The first part of the show was part slap-stick comedy spectacle and the first half of the game against the Washington Generals. The comedy is designed for kids, but elicited huge laughs from all the adults, too. At half-time ALL of the kids were invited down to the court area to practice their dribbling and basketball skills. They appeared to have enough balls for all the kids and it was great to see all of them out there together. The second half of the game was even more entertaining. First up was the Slam Dunk Competition. Wow. Doing flips and jumps to get their dunks in, the players made some amazing shots. Shortly after, all kids were called to the floor to dance to the YMCA. Then came my favorite part. As they started playing, the ref called for an instant re-play and instead of showing it on a screen, the Globetrotters acted out the replay backwards and in slow motion. Next, they did it again in fast forward! Some cool choreography came into play and it was evident that these athletes are much more than basketball players. Also, it was a refreshing reminder that screens and technology will never take the place of a live show. We were all in awe after that portion of the show, but we could tell the fun was coming to a close. It ended with the Harlem Globetrotters beating the Washington Generals and everyone in the crowd on our feet cheering! It is clear to see why this show has stood the test of time and this will definitely be a yearly activity for our family. I definitely recommend attending one of their amazing shows.
