EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Swim and Spin Ariel from Hasbro is a wind-up Ariel doll with a full mermaid fin for fun in the water. Flounder and Sebastian are also included and can sit on a piece that is attached to Ariel so that when she spins, they spin. To activate the spinning, push the button up on Ariel's back, lift her arms, wind up the seashell, place her in the water. She and her friends spin. The doll can also be used for imaginative play along with the floating Flounder and Sebastian. However, this does not work as stated in a bathtub. This works better as a pool toy. See the "What to Be Aware of" Section for more information.

Is It Fun?

Little Mermaid fans will enjoy bringing their favorite mermaid, and her friends into the water for engaging in imaginative play. This works better as a pool toy rather than in the bathtub.

Who It’s For

This Ariel toy is for Disney Princess and Little Mermaid fans ages 3 and up to play with in water.  

What To Be Aware Of

The instructions state to activate the spinning, push the button up on Ariel's back, lift her arms, wind up the seashell, place her in the water to watch her and her friends spin. We found that in order for the toy to be most effective, the water needs to be deep enough for Ariel to be upright, and she needs space to move. That's hard to do in a bathtub so fans may have more fun playing with the doll in a pool where the water is deeper.
