Mermaids by artists, not animation conglomerates
I know that this year I'm going to end up with a bunch of kids I've forgotten about on my holiday list, so I try to amass a repertoire of fun, not too expensive gifts to keep on standby. If they don't get given out this month, there's always birthday parties all year long.
While we have a whole bunch of gifts under $15 in our holiday gift guide
, I just found one more that I'm in love with. [don't miss a nice discount after the jump]
The Mermaids Magnetic Dress Up Dolls
from Mudpuppy is such a cool gift for girls. It would make a great travel toy to keep kids busy on long car rides or airport layovers. And I adore the illustrations from artist Lorena Siminovich who also happens to be the founder of CMP fave Petit Collage
. Much nicer than that famous licensed mermaid character, don't you think?
