About Mermaid Lanai "The New York Mermaid"
Born off the waters of Coney Island, NY. This Mermaid Queen has a gentle nature, with a bubbly
personality, she will enchant all she meets and is quite well-spoken. While she loves spending time
in her home waters along with her whale and dolphin friends, she is just as comfortable in a Pool,
Tub or Aquarium tank. She doesn't mind wearing her Golden Crown (upon request) or a beautiful
flower to match her tail color. Her favorite things are collecting special treasures (and sharing them
with little humans too) and telling stories of her ocean friends. Her heart belongs to the ocean
as she is always working to share awareness about marine animals and ocean conservation.
(Ask her about her whale friend Zeus, or see if she brought her turtle friend)
Pastel Rainbow Silicone tail (perfect for any color theme) and a Green/Pink realistic fabric tail. Both can be used on land or in water. (Her signature Blue tail is currently being upgraded for 2020)
