What It Is

Splash into fashionable fun with Barbie's newest direct-to-DVD, Barbie in a Mermaid Tale. Girls will have waves of fun with multiple co-star dolls, glittery dolphins, and fashionable wearable and collectible toys.

The main doll in the collection is the Merliah doll. The star of the movie, Merliah is a teenager from Malibu who learns that she is secretly a mermaid. The doll reflects this story element with a beautiful and unique transformation feature-pull down Merliah's hood and she "magically" transforms from a girl into a mermaid! Merliah's hair color also changes and unique body art appears on her stomach, arms, and toes when placed in cold water. Included with the doll is her ocean friend, a glittery, pink dolphin.

The movie's co-stars have roles as dolls, as well. These finned Barbie dolls come with a cold water-activated color-change feature that changes the color of their necklaces or necklines.

The Beach Doll Barbie is a value-priced version of the Merliah doll ($5.99 compared to $16.99). This beach-ready doll comes in a pink or blue swimsuit.

The Barbie in a Mermaid Tale Dolls let girls have fun with their favorite characters from the movie and include Teresa, Grace, Ken, and Steven. Again, these dolls are a more inexpensive way ($5.99) for girls to reenact their favorite scenes from Barbie in a Mermaid Tale or create their own stories!

There's nothing better than a mermaid makeover! The Seahorse Stylist Doll Assortment features fashion-savvy seahorse hair stylists who love to make a splashy style statement. Each doll's hair changes color with cold water, giving girls endless and easily changeable fashion play options. Each Seahorse Stylist comes with a glittery seahorse friend.

The Seashell Surprise Assortment lets girls start their own fashion collection. These multi-functional bracelets open to reveal a mini mermaid or pet for on-the-go play! A simple press of the seashell button reveals the mini mermaid or pet. And at only $5.99 each, girls will definitely want to collect all of these cool bracelets!
