5 Adorable Mermaid Tails For Babies & Kids


My girls have been hounding me for the past two months for mermaid tails. Real mermaid tails that they can wear to transform them into magical mermaids. And then of course, there are the merman (yes they do exist and I happen to have one). After the 1,038,489th request, I decided to hit up Etsy and search for some fun ideas. I found a few solutions for boys, girls and babies.

This solid tail comes in several different colour options and a matching butterfly top.

The tail is made with jewel, hologram or foil spandex tricot and comes open at the bottom for easy adjustment. Price: $60.69 through OnceUponAMermaid.


Can you handle the cute? This crocheted baby version comes with a headband and bikini top. The tail is accented with starfish ruggles and the bikini top with coral and flowers. Price: $38.62 from MadhatterknitsCo


For the merman or mermaids in your life! This gender neutral version would make a great photo prop, but unfortunately isn’t suitable for water play. Price: $49.65 from DesignsbyDecember on Etsy.


Another baby version! This one is knitted and stretchy enough to accommodate chunky legs. Price: $40.83 from SquishyCouture.


Last but not least is this four-way stretch tail, complete with scales (yes you can wear this in the water!). Price: $41.93 from Pameh on Etsy.
