Land-Based Mermaids ("Walking Skirt Mermaids")

Suitable for summer outdoor parties or indoor parties year-round


No pool? No problem! Our original splash-tacular land-based mermaid party characters were created for Mattel and The Ocean Institute Aquarium to offer a high-energy, fun, educational, and non-swimming mermaid party option to adventurous kids and fans of "The Little Mermaid."

Perfect for a beach party, backyard, or indoor event, these walking mermaids are "swell" by themselves or when paired with one of our famous swimming mermaid characters.


  • This party is optimally designed for 15 guests or less per character.

  • If you are expecting more children add on another character (such as a second mermaid or pirate) to your event.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have some very conservative friends coming. Can the mermaids wear something different?

Yes, we do offer modesty tops that are full coverage from wrists to neck that can be worn under their typical swim tops.

Can I combine a walking style mermaid with one of your swimming mermaids?

Yes, many of our clients will mix and match characters. Please note that swimming mermaid combinations are an additional fee as they appear in their incredible film-quality prosthetics and arrive with a lifeguard for in-water work.

Which mermaid will come to my party?

Please specify "Mermaid Princess" if you wish for our mermaid in the purple shells and green tail to attend. Otherwise we will send you one of our original, non-commercial, characters.
