Sea Wees :: Playsets

Sea Wees were produced by Kenner from 1979-85. They were a series of 4 inch plastic mermaid dolls with 2 inch babies made for playing with in the bath.  Each doll came with a flat sponge with one, two or three wholes in it which the dolls could fit into in order to float.

TropiGals Playset [1982]

"A colourful new way to launch the Sea Wees TripiGals collection! Blue hair and tan, Camille and her baby Cascade are beautiful mermaids with blue bodies: they have a pet pelican names Pelly. Sun-tanned Flora Sea Wees and her Baby Finella both have white hair and purple mermaid bodies and their sea-pet is a little dog, Dubloon. There's still more colour; a green starfish-shaped lily pad/sponge with die-cut holes for all to float in tub or pool, and both Camille and Flora Sea Wees have their own polynesian-style hula-hula grass skirt and orange and green hair combs."

This playset came with two sets of the TropiGals. These were not new characters, but had different colours from their original release.
