Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 DVD & Merliah Transforming Doll Giveaway

The new Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 releases on DVD this Tuesday March 6th, 2012 priced at about $14.95. We received a sneak peek at both this DVD release and one of the hot Β new Barbie toys that go along with film. As expected, both the latest Barbie in a Mermaid Tale movie and the new hip transforming doll were a hit in my house with my 6 year old daughter Kenzie.

Barbie movies are always surprisingly excellent for my kids – and I find them entertaining too. Truly after seeing a dozen of these movies, I can attest to how great these really are. Each fall and spring we all look forward to the latest new release and can’t wait to buy it.

We have already watched this new flick 3 times in only 3 days! In this story, a sequel to the original Barbie in a Mermaid Tale, surfer girl Merliah heads to Australia for a big surf competition and then finds her self on another underwater adventure as a Mermaid Princess with a mission to stop the evil Eris in order to save her fellow mermaids and all of Oceana. Good stuff!

Even more fun for my kids are playing with toys that go along with the movie. My favorite is this Transforming doll Merliah ($17.99) – where Barbie converts from a Mermaid to a regular girl with bendable legs who can be propped on her surfboard. See our demo here:

The board doubles as a tail fin combo when it’s not in surfboard position! Simple to transform and great for imaginative play. Kenzie especially loves the body art tattoo on Merliah and her pink & blonde hair. We found our body art in appears and disappears based on the temperature which is very cool. If the body art dims from Kenzie’s warm hands holding it, she just grabs a piece of ice and the body art pops back to full color. Brilliant!

To celebrate the release of these new goodies, we’ve got a sweet giveaway.

  5. To Merliah Summers,
    We, Tori, Barbie, and Michelle are best friends. You sang “I’m ready. I’m steady. I’m up on my feet. Dancing on the water to my own kind of beat. I’m in it. I’m on it. I’m rocking my skills. Tearing up the current like a girl’s got gills. Pop up, lean, and side to side. Lean back, hang ten, go for a ride. Catch that curl, get into the tune. Do the mami, mami. Make your tail fin move. I’m the queen of the waves. Check me out. I’m spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away my crown. Surf’s up. Bow down. I’m the queen of the waves. I’m floating. I’m flying. I’m so out of reach. Zooma to lagoona, I’m the best on the beach. High-tide, low-tide, rip-tide too. I’m in it. To win it. For Malibu. Pop up, lean, and side to side. Lean back, hang ten, go for a ride. Catch that curl, get into the tune. Do the mami, mami. Make your tail fin move. I’m the queen of the waves. Check me out. I’m spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away my crown. Surf’s up. Bow down. I’m the queen of the waves. Let me see now. One foot up. Hands in the air. Cause a comotion. Jump in the ocean. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. I’m the queen of the waves. Check me out. I’m spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away my crown. I’m the queen of the waves. Check me out. I’m spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away my crown. Surf’s up. Bow down. I’m the queen of the waves.” All the girls cheered. Now it’s time for your reprise. I sang “Calling all mermaids. Now’s your chance. Together with Merliah for a brand new dance. She razzles. She dazzles. She rules the seas. So, let’s rock the reef for my majesty. Pop up, lean, and side to side. Lean back, hang ten, go for a ride. Catch that curl, get into the tune. Do the mami, mami. Make your tail fin move. She’s the queen of the waves. Check her out. She’s spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away her crown. Surf’s up. Bow down. She’s the queen of the waves. Her smile. Her style. You just gonna stare. The ends of the mermaids are everywhere. Her beauty. Her cutie. You just gonna know. Her charms are made up for a undertoe. Pop up, lean, and side to side. Lean back, hang ten, go for a ride. Catch that curl, get into the tune. Do the mami, mami. Make your tail fin move. She’s the queen of the waves. Check her out. She’s spinning. Not bored around. Queen of the waves. No one’s gonna take away her crown. Surf’s up. Bow down.” The five of us will always promise each other.
    “It feels good to be a part of something bigger than yourself.”
