Magic Merbabies

"Create fun colours in you bath!"

Magic Merbabies were produced by Hasbro/Vivid Imaginations around 2001-04 (In Italy they were produced by Gigi). They were a series of small dolls with mermaid clothing and colourful hair, made for play in water. Each doll came with a packet of "Fizzy Tints" (also called "Bath Tints"), for colouring bath water. There were also a few playsets produced.

They were sold in parts of Europe under varying names:

  • France: Mes Jolies Petites Sirènes (My Pretty Little Mermaid)
  • Italy: Magiche Piccole Sirene (Magical Little Mermaid)
  • Germany: Zauberhafte Badenixen (Magical Mermaids)

Floral Merbabies

There were six Floral Merbabies produced. Each doll had a floral name and came with two Mer-Pets each, a packet of Fizzy Tints and a brush too. The Mer-pets were smaller than the original ones and didn't have names. The moulds were also repeated although the colours changed. The packaging image below shows their Italian names.
