There are four types of mermaids: traditional, Selkies, shape-shifters, and the Merfolk. Selkies are mermaids who can transform their tales into human legs. They also possess four main powers: immortality, telepathy, hypnosis, and clairvoyance.
Sailors be warned! It is said that the singing voice of a mermaid will hypnotise nearby sailors, calling them to swim with them where they will inevitably sink to their death. The only way to stop them is to put wax in their ears to block out the hypnotic sound!
These magical, mythical creatures have been brought to life by the amazing Green Taiga and are one of a kind. Designed to encourage your child's natural curiosity and allow them to create endless worlds full of magical creatures, with lots of wonderful storytelling and fairytales along the way.
They are a joy to touch and hold and have varying texture which assists in developing motor skills and allows the toy to become a guide to the world of wonder and adventure.
They match beautifully with any of the amazing figures and trees from our Stories & Tales collection.
They are the perfect educational tool for young children and are ideal for use in Montessori and Waldorf play settings.
