Disney Princess The Little Mermaid Mermaid-to-Princess Ariel Review (Mattel)

What It Is

In the movie The Little Mermaid, Ariel transforms from mermaid to human, and kids can recreate the magic from the movie with the Mermaid-to-Princess Ariel doll. Ariel's mermaid tail is sparkly teal, and the doll wears a sparkly pink strapless bodice. Pull straight down on the doll's pink skirt and now Ariel is wearing a beautiful pink gown. To go along with this transformation, kids will hear the doll sing. To change Ariel back into a mermaid, just pull down on the fabric portion of the mermaid tale and the pink skirt will slide up to reveal the mermaid tale again as the doll sings a snippet from the song "Part of Your World". Kids can also press the seashell button on the doll's top to hear Ariel sing again.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun way for fans of The Little Mermaid to play out the mermaid-to-human transformation that is so central to the movie's storyline. The transformation is easy to do, and kids will like hearing familiar songs from the movie as they play.
