Rocking your inner mermaid with Planet Mermaid

Planet Mermaid

Eliza loves the water.

In fact, she loves being under the water so much, that her swimming instructor jokes that she should have been a mermaid!

She has been asking for a mermaid tail for the last couple of years, but we were always worried about safety, instead choosing to get her a crochet blanket instead for Christmas last year.

This year, however, she has just achieved her 400m distance swimming award and I think she is ready for her first proper mermaid swimming lesson.

Mermaid tail swimming is a great pool activity for kids and adults alike and many swim schools are now offering lessons, although it is important to remember that public pools do not allow you to use mermaid tails during public swimming.

We have been sent a mermaid tail from Planet Mermaid to review and Eliza could not wait to try it on.

Planet Mermaid

Eliza chose the pink ocean kiss mermaids tail, which comes with a monofin insert which you pop your feet into and gives the tail its shape and supports swimming.

Also in the box was a Magic Monofin swimbag, to keep the mermaid tail in, a matching tankini style top and briefs to wear underneath.

Of course, Eliza could not wait to try it on and magically transformed into a mermaid out of water.

Planet Mermaid

The mermaid tails are suitable for use in and out of water, although walking in them would be rather challenging, put possible without the monofin. They are made from a fade and chlorine resistant fabric and are fully machine washable.

In fact, Eliza could wear the tankini to the beach, or pool, in the summer to get wear out of it and cannot wait for her first mermaid lesson later this month.

Planet Mermaid

The Ocean Kiss mermaid tail costs from £32.99 and is available for ages 4 through to adult sizes.

    How cool is that? I’ve got two boys who love the water, too, and kind of wish I had a little girl to buy that tail for (or wondering whether it would fit me)! Hope Eliza loves her lesson as much as she seems to like her tail!

    I love them! My daughter begged and begged until we eventually bit the bullet and got her a tail with fin for the feet. She and her friends all took them to the pool for a birthday party and even the lifeguards were fascinated. Hope she has fun with it x

    I too have a little mermaid who prefers to be under the water (for scary amounts of time) rather than on top of it and she would adore this outfit

  17. These are amazing. They look so cool! I bet she feels like I real little mermaid x
