Mermaids have enthralled the imagination for centuries. The sirens of Homer's Oddessy have often been portrayed as mermaid creatures. In the 1700's, mermaids lived in sailor's dreams, but were feared as warnings of shipwrecks in their sea shanties and ballads. Hans Christian Andersen's 1837 The Little Mermaid short story formed the foundation story for Disney's angelically-voiced Ariel, who swam across the big screen and in to our hearts 152 years later. Who can forget Harry Potter's tangle with mermaids in the series' fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? Even the coffee giant Starbucks features a mermaid in their logo (and on their stirrers!).
Carry on the timeless tradition by inspiring your little miss to dream of swimming beneath the waves of the vast oceans as she snuggles all toasty and warm in this super soft Minky Mermaid Tail Blanket. These tail blankets are made with soft minky fabric. Each has two colors, with the main color being the body of the tail, and the accent color comprising the back, fins, and lining at the waist. Perfect for sleepovers, camp outs, movie nights, or bedtime, this is a great gift idea for birthdays or Christmas!
The body of the tail measures about 36" long and the fins extend about another 21" beyond that for a total length of about 57". They measure about 22" wide at the opening, and taper down to about 10" at its narrowest point. These blankets are ideal for ages 3 to 12 years old.
Note: Purple & Hot Pink Mermaid Tail Blanket does not have "dimpled" fabric, but is still the super soft minky material. The other color options have dimpled minky fabric as the top fabric.
