Have you seen the pretty mermaids tails that you can buy, do that little girls, teenagers, adults can live their fantasy being a mermaids?
they are not suitable to wear swimming. I just watched a video on Facebook, of a young girl in her family pool, go under the water with a mermaids tail on and wasn’t able to come back to the top of the water. Luckily her mum was paying attention and grabbed her. Very scarey

  • mermaid tils danger mermaids


  • Thanks for the warning. I’m sure I wouldn’t have let Miss3 wear one in a pool or at the beach before reading this. But now I’ll definitely will not let her wear one.


  • I’ve seen those but never thought of the implications of wearing them in the water. Good work mum.


  • I have no idea regarding the labels. Absolutely kids should always be supervised when swimming


  • Your story stresses the point of children being supervised at all times when near and in the water and the importance of wearing swimmers when swimming!


  • I would assume they have warning labels?


  • wow that is scary. i know that it is not meant to be used for swimming as it is a costume but how many kids will want to try it out even just in the bath tub. Have to be watchful of the kids

    • The bath tub with supervision sounds safer!


  • Another thing in life where reality sucks! haha Thank goodness the mum was paying attention that could have been fatal
