While Ariel wanted to be part of our world, we at RadioTimes.com would much rather be a part of hers.


As Disney releases its latest live-action version of The Little Mermaid, starring Halle Bailey, we find ourselves wishing we could join the Princess for her adventures under the sea.

But instead, we slave away out in the sun (sort of) and have to content ourselves with watching this magical movie on land – either in the cinema or when it comes out on Disney Plus.

In the meantime, we’ve put together this list of the best Little Mermaid gifts and merchandise to help you truly immerse yourself in the world of the film.

In this guide we’ve got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty, from Ariel dolls and LEGO sets to props and accessories from the film. We’ve also got costumes and clothing for all ages, and even a cosy mermaid tail blanket, so you can be a princess on land, in the sea and on the sofa.
