Something tells me Sebastian had a point when he told Ariel life was better under the sea. While we figure out how to make underwater life a reality so we can hang out with mermaids, we'll stick to playing and reading with these toys and books all about mermaids instead. This list has something for every mermaid lover!

Paint by Sticker Kids: Mermaids & Magic!

Julián Is A Mermaid by Jessica Love

While riding the subway one day, Julián notices three spectacularly-dressed women: Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. When Julián gets home, daydreaming of the magic he’s seen, all he can think about is dressing up just like the ladies in his own fabulous mermaid costume. Jessica Love’s author-illustrator debut is a radiant celebration of individuality and a story we love.
