Lalaloopsy Sew Bubbly Mermaid, about $35.
Like all good Lalaloopsy dolls, the Sew Bubbly Mermaid comes with a little extra (in this case, an octopus or jellyfish, or some kind of underwater pet). So you feel like there’s a bit of a value-add when you buy it.
It’s awesome that this product comes with a good-sized bottle filled with bubble solution. And it’s totally reusable.
The mermaid is very, very cute. And sports that big, bobble-head-worthy noggin that you know and love from Lalaloopsy.
Despite the very pinkness of her, even my son (who’s a real boy’s boy) is having a bit of a love affair with the Sew Bubby Mermaid. In fact, it’s perhaps the one toy in the tub that they happily share.
We’ve been testing this Lalaloopsy out for at least a month and both kids are still smitten, which is a good sign. It’s an even better sign that they’re still playing with her as intended and no one has made her the victim of a plot twist gone horribly wrong.
For the most part, this toy does what it claims to do…
But in no way as well as portrayed on the commercials. We have yet to make a stellar bubble bouffant that doesn’t immediately drip right down the front of our mermaid’s face. Forget perfect Princess Leah-worthy bubble buns…either we’re doing something wrong or Lalaloopsy only performs for the cameras.
She’s a bit of a pain to properly clean out and dry. I keep fearing those little sheets of black gunk that come out of our bath toys every quarter (before I bleach them yet again) are soon going to make their way out of Miss Mermaid’s lovely head. Ew.
I wish the bubble solution didn’t come right back out of the mermaid’s head so quickly. There are four holes in which you can pour the solution; there only needs to be one.
