Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 Mini-mermaids Review (Mattel)

What It Is

In Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 (Mattel's latest direct-to-DVD Barbie movie release), Barbie reprises her starring role as Merliah, a champion surfer from Malibu who is secretly a mermaid princess. The Mini-mermaids are mini dolls (about six-and-a-half inches tall) that come with sea animals, such as a dolphin, turtle, and sea lion. Each pet has a special clip that holds a mini doll in place so it looks like the doll is sitting and riding on the pet. The dolls' hair changes color with icy cold water. It changes back with warm water. There are three dolls with pets to collect and each is sold separately. The dolls and pets do float in water.

Is It Fun?

The Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 Mini-mermaids combine water play with Barbie doll play. Whether in the pool, bathtub, or out of the water, with the Mini-mermaid dolls kids can recreate their favorite movie moments from Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 or send the mini dolls and pets on new underwater adventures.

Who It’s For

The Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 Mini-mermaids are for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

When using warm water to change the doll's hair back to its original color, do not use water that is too hot (above 120 degrees) to prevent burns.
