This past Christmas, the number one toy that my daughter asked for (repeatedly, I might add) was the Splashlings Coral Playground Playset by TPF Toys.
Invented by the famed Pound Puppies®creator, Mike Bowling, Splashlings over 100 new mermaids, ocean friends, gems, shells and treasures join the Splashlings family, affording kids more than 200 ocean-themed characters to collect between the Series one and now Series two. One special thing to note about Series two is that this new wave has Ultra Rare Color Change Characters, that when dipped in icy cold water, amazingly change colors!

If your little one likes to see things in action, there is a Splashlings digital series, produced by Shaftesbury/Smokebomb, in partnership with TPF Toys, on YouTube. The series follows five mermaid guardians of the sea as they encounter adventures, fend off dastardly Mer-Pirates, and make new friends while protecting the underwater kingdom of Orabel.
