If you grew up after the early nineties then of course want to be a mermaid! Ariel is everything and as much as it pains me she has become a role model to not just myself but thousands of girls (and boys) across the world. We'll just slide past the fact that she might not be the "healthiest" of role models and just focus on her sassy awesomeness, great hair and gravity defying clam shells.
In lieu of an actual tail, and with the rise of the danish hygge trend (or at least a less alcohol orientated more comfort and coziness focussed form of hygge) mermaid tail blankets have become all the rage. They've even hit the high street by turning up inNew Look.
My 31st birthday solidified my own personal mermaid transformation by producing not one, not two, but THREE mermaid blankets. My friends and family are awesome.
I, of course, snapped them (Snapchat: Faeribex) and got a tonne of questions as to where they were from, I hadn't a clue but I've tried to track them down online to answer everyone's questions.
Let's be honest this is a Dory blanket. A fricken Dory mermaid tail blanket!)
This is the closest blanket to an actual Ariel tail so it will fulfil all your little mermaid needs.

The tassels on this are pure crack for my cat, MadEye, the cute purple and blue mix knot make it a bit different from the normal styles out there.
So if you have a mermaid obsessed loved ones birthday (or let's face it... Christmas is around the corner) then I definitely recommend fishing the internet for one of these. They will be forever thankful to you!
