Mermaid Rachel swam all the way from the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands to be with us! She was born out in the middle of the Ocean, near an island called Oahu. When Mermaid Rachel was growing up, her family would watch the people on the island beat drums and movie their arms and legs in beautiful ways. Shortly after, her merpapa carved a big drum out of some driftwood, and soon her mermom was teaching schools of fish, and Mermaid Rachel, how to hula dance just like the humans on land! They all love to dance together.
One day, Mermaid Rachel's family was exploring far away from their island and met more human friends by a big red bridge that crossed over a bay. Curious to know more about the people in this new land, Mermaid Rachel explored far upriver, and found some mermaids living in a place called Dive Bar in Sacramento. The mermaids invited Mermaid Rachel to come swim and play with them every night in a big tank and entertain people where she rapidly swam to a top performer position.
Sometimes Mermaid Rachel likes to dry off and visit and meet new human friends on land. When she gets very, very, very dry - she grow legs! It doesn't hurt, just tickles a little bit. To grow her tail back, she has to be fully submerged in saltwater for at least three minutes.
Mermaid Rachel is an amazing artist who loves learning new things about the human world and exploring all of the fun toys that people have. She has lots of questions to ask her new human friends, and knows you must have questions for her too!
Do you know what a mermaid's favorite food is? Have you heard about seahorse races? Do you know how many oceans there are? Go ahead and ask her when you mean this magical mermaid. She can't wait to meet you and show you how enchanting mermaids can be!
