Staying at a hotel with a pool for a long weekend family get together we have spent no less than fifteen hours in the pool with the kids, or (you know mostly watching from the sidelines). Not only am I so tired of “hotel-parenting” that I just brought Violet back from the bathroom without actually checking if she had her shorts back on (she didn’t) but I’m also an expert in pools, and things like water slide time trials, and Mermaid Fins.
The dream came to life when we learned about the Mermaid fin from Finis, a monofin that can bring the dreams of mermaid tails to life. The durable fin not only brings mermaid dreams to the local pool but can also help with swimming strokes, helping Olivia to make it across the pool with ease.
Used all summer, the fin is going strong and is surely going to be a favourite packed away for those winter vacations in the mountains or on the beach. Used by at least a dozen kids throughout the summer months, the adjustable straps made it simple to move from one kid to the next all weekend, with the imposed time limits from Olivia, because it’s her ‘special tail’.
