Between the Hello Kitty stuff and two Polly Pocket sets in different size scales, I've Googled mermaid themes several times already. That's how I stumbled on this freaky-ass knock-off of something:
It's made by--get this--Unicqe, which looks like a misspelling of a misspelling. :O The Mermaid Fairy Princess wording seems a little aggressive, and WTF is a Magical Face?? Unless your idea of "magical" translates to derpy-looking, with crossed eyes and heavy, crooked eyebrows. \o?
I also came across this product:
We actually have this thing, and it just seems utterly cracked-out to me. The doll and the dolphin look like they're trapped in some sort of doom-spiral in that tank. They're supposed to seem happy, but is that dolphin rejoicing or struggling to get free? Is the doll smiling, or gritting her teeth?
I mean, after 5 or 6 days of looking at those pictures, it seems a little less weird. But am I alone in thinking the whole idea is utterly bizarre?
Though this is true for a lot of toys marketed to girls. "Mermaid Fairy Princess" kind of says it all. :O
