Ariel’s Grotto, Ariel & Sisters Set, and Land & Sea Ariel Ultimate Story Set Review

Editor's Rating


Editor's Review

Play out all your favorite moments from The Little Mermaid with all your favorite characters thanks to new playsets and small dolls from Mattel. Each is sold separately.

Ariel’s Grotto opens up to reveal multiple play areas and accessories. It comes with a poseable Ariel mermaid doll and character figures of Flounder and Sebastian. Fold out the slide to take a dip in the clamshell pool. Use the moving doll clip to help Ariel swim up and down. (This sometimes gets a little stuck.) There’s also a balcony and place for Ariel to sit. Not to mention all the shelves and display pegs for storing the accessories, which include a statue of two dancing figures, a box of corkscrews, a mirror, a candelabra, a necklace, and a fork (aka Dinglehopper). Fold it up and use the handle to bring the fun with you on the go. This is a Story Stackers playset, and if you collect other The Little Mermaid Story Stackers (sold separately), you can stack them on top of this one or connect them side by side for more play.

Ariel has a lot of sisters, and you can collect them all in the Ariel & Her Sisters Set. There are seven poseable mermaid dolls in this collection, including Ariel, Caspia, Indira, Perla, Karina, Mala, and Tamika. Each has a signature look and very detailed mermaid tail. 

And if you want to collect even more of Ariel’s world, then you’ll want the Land & Sea Ariel Ultimate Story Set. This figure collection comes with seven dolls of mermaid Ariel, human Ariel, King Triton, Ursula, Vanessa, Prince Eric, and Ariel’s sister Tamika. Plus, there are four figures of Flounder, Sebastian, Scuttle, and Max. King Triton wields a removable trident, and mermaid Ariel wears a removable necklace.

Should I get it?

These small doll sets will inspire a lot of imaginative play. We appreciate the little details within the grotto playset and on all of the mermaid tails. All three of these toys allow kids to play out favorite scenes from the movie. If you collect all three, you can basically play out the whole movie!


Great detail,

Collect & play with favorite characters
