You don’t have to have kids to know that mermaids are really popular with children. This isn’t just a fad either. These sea creatures have been part of children’s stories for centuries. The part human, part fish mermaid continues to fascinate the imginations of both girls and boys.

Kids love mermaid stuffed animals

From storybook and movie characters, to custom stuffed animals, and mermaid tail blankets, you can find mermaids just about anywhere and everywhere. Kids love drawing, painting and creating their very own mermaid characters.

Why Kids Love Mermaids

So why do kids find mermaids so magical? Maybe it’s because they look so much like humans but have the fun twist of having a tail. It’s easy for children to relate to mermaids and still use their imaginations of the fantasy world.

Custom Mermaid Plushie

Children also love mermaids because they live in the ocean. Most kids would love to live in the sea if given the chance. They love visiting the sunny, warm beach and seeing all the creatures that live there.

And let’s not forget that mermaids are beautiful. With their long flowing hair, gorgeous shimmering tails and graceful moves who wouldn’t dream of being a mermaid at some point in their life?
