Mermaids have been all the rage since we were kids — mostly thanks to Ariel. But even today, kids (and adults!) love to dress up as the half-scaled/half-human creatures and fantasize about living among the fish. So here are 15 super-cute things that any mermaid-lover would enjoy, since they are, in fact, stuck on land.

1. Mermaid Bathing Suit

OMG, how cute is this mermaid swimsuit? It comes in pink or purple, or you can just get both for ultimate cuteness and hope your kid will sit still long enough for a picture.

2. A Cute Mermaid Tee
