Nixies Bella Review (Redwood Ventures)

Nixies Bella
What It Is

Nixies are five-inch battery-operated mermaid dolls that swim through water. Each doll has a fan on its tail that enables the doll to move through water. This toy can be used in the bathtub, swimming pool, or even a large fish bowl. There are three Nixies in the line: Bella, Amelia, and Narissa. Each is sold separately.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun and engaging toy, and kids will like watching their doll swim through water and roleplaying imaginative mermaid adventures.

Who It’s For

Nixies are for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Each Nixies doll requires one AAA battery, which is not included.

A written warning tab is around each doll, but the actual warning instructions face inward so we thought this was just a tag that could be discarded. If you hang on to it and read it, it cautions against holding this toy too close to your hair to prevent your hair from getting caught in the fan.

The battery compartment does not close properly and opens quite often, exposing the battery, and because this is a water toy, exposing the battery to water could damage the battery and/or the toy.
