“Flippin’ your fins, you don’t get too far.” But if you’re just looking to cozy up with a blanket, they work just fine. You no longer need to bargain with a sea witch thanks to Blankie Tails, the official licensee of Disney Princess and Frozen character blankets. Whether you want to look like you're ready for the ball or for an adventure under the sea, they’ve got you covered. Blankie Tails was kind enough to send us a free sample of their Ariel tail blanket for review.

Bundled in an attractive cardboard display, you’re able to feel just how soft the minky fleece blanket is before you buy it. The side of the box shows you exactly what’s in the box, a mermaid fin that looks just like Ariel’s. If you’re trying to recreate the look on the box, many companies sell shirts with mermaid seashells on them.

The mermaid tail has several fun textures for kids, with the waistband featuring raised bumps. The main body of the fin features shimmery dots that create the illusion of scales. The fabric of the fin matches that of the waist, but without the raised dots.

It’s true that there are a lot of mermaid tail blankets on the market, which is how Blankie Tails got their start, but this is the only officially licensed Ariel tail on the market and several added accents make it obvious who this belongs to. A purple embroidered silhouette of Ariel is on the upper right side of the tail.

The right fin is also embroidered with Ariel’s elegant signature, looking exactly like her signature in the film when she signs Ursula’s contract.

There’s also a tag on the blanket that has the official movie logo on it.

The Ariel tail blanket from Blankie Tails is beautiful and any young fan of Ariel will love it. While most Blankie Tails products are designed for kids, your feet can go into the fins, making it easy for adult fans of Ariel to wear, too!
