If you've got little kids, you've no doubt heard of Splashlings, the cute line of mermaids and ocean friends for kids to collect. 

The Splashlings launched in the US last year and have since turned out to be one of the biggest kids collectibles, and getting millions on millions of views on Youtube, and they have now hit Australia too. 

Example of the Splashlings Mermaid 12 Pack

The range features heaps of different mermaids, ocean friends, gems, shells and treasures, and they are seriously cute. Ok, I admit that they are probably a little more for the girls, perhaps because there are a lot of purple and pink mermaids, but them again, my little boy is loving all types of animals as well as fish (not least thanks to being a huge Octonauts fan), so he has been excited about playing with them, and they quickly became a part of his usual pretend underwater Octonauts play scene - making it even more fun. And he was very excited about all the different varieties, and not least the surprise packages and what was hiding inside the shells. 

The Splashlings come in various pack sizes

The mermaids and the little fish are all so bright and colourful, and have the sweetest and most adorable faces, that it is near impossible to say which one is cuter. And there are so many different ones to collect, 100s, literally - and knowing it will be impossible to track which one your kid has got, each set comes with a convenient collector guide that lists all the options available, so they can be crossed off - and that in itself is a fun game that my boy was really into, finding them one after one and spotting them on the little sheet, in true 'Where's Wally" style. 

Example of the Splashlings Mermaid 6 Pack

As well as different play sets, there are also various different packs of the Splashlings available, including;
  • Foil Packs - includes two hidden Splashlings and one collector guide
  • Collector's Shell - includes 1 large shell, 2 hidden Splashlings and one collector guide
  • Mermaid 12 Pack - includes 1 mermaid, 7 Splashlings, 2 hidden Splashlings, 2 shells and 1 collector guide
  • Mermaid 6 pack - includes 1 mermaid, 4 Splashlings, 1 shell and 1 collector guide

Examples of the Splashlings Foil Packs

 The Splashlings are recommended for kids aged 5+, simply because some of the Splashlings are so tiny that they are a choking hazard for little ones, so I do have to make sure that our 22 month old is not around when our 'big' boy is playing with these.
