Raise your hand high if you are constantly having to play “under the sea” with your child, or if you have to go on treasure hunts all the time, or if when your child is feeling grumpy toward you but still wants to play she offers to let you be Ursula (gee, thanks kid).
Just me? Somehow I doubt it! Darah’s interest in mermaids has been strong since she was just 2, and it shows NO signs of slowing down. She’s been asking for a stuffed Flounder doll for her birthday (which isn’t until August), and she’s been putting that request in weekly since, oh…I don’t know…JANUARY??
The request for a plush version didn’t transpire until her request for a real fish was flatly denied. And before you go thinking that I’m a mean mom who won’t let her child have a first pet, please know that when I asked Darah why she wanted a pet fish, she very matter-of-factly explained to me that they would take baths together every night. So you see, I’m really a fish protector, not a hater.
Darah plays with mermaids in the tub. She plays with them in the car. She pretends to be a mermaid at least 6 different times each day. And she LOVES knowing that there is a whole world of mermaids out there beyond the red headed Disney princess.
So when I showed her the beautiful line of dolls from Aurora called Sea Sparkles, she was elated. We spent 15 minutes pouring over the catalog of options and admiring each of the dolls in the collection. Darah finally decided she wanted to bring Marinna home to be her special mermaid friend.
Marinna is an excellent companion to Darah as she searches through caverns (also known as closets) for special treasures. She is soft, has lovely long hair that is fun to comb through with your fingers, and she even has her own special jewel as part of her outfit.
Aurora Sea Sparkles mermaids come in a wide range of looks as well as sizes (10, 18 and even 38 inches!), so you are sure to find the perfect friend with a fin for your mermaid fan! I can guarantee that your child will love playing with these sweet dolls from Aurora. I can’t guarantee that they will pose for pictures with them, though! (Does your kid do this, too?)
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader will win their choice of an 18″ Sea Sparkles doll of your choice! (excludes the holiday line)
