Dear Valued Customer,
Welcome to Fin Fun. Here safety and your satisfaction means everything. That is why we have the highest ratings in customers satisfaction in the world and we are viewed as the original and best mermaid tail. Our mermaid tails and monofins have been carefully designed with safety in mind. Before you give one to your child, please make sure he/she is “Mermaid Tail Ready” and, as with any water activity, your child should be under adult supervision at all times during use.
As parents of children ourselves, we focus on and emphasize safety first in everything we do. This focus makes our tails different from other, less expensive tails. Please review this page along with your instruction guide when you get your products to make sure your Mermaid is “Tail Ready”.
Our tails and monofins meet the Child Protection Safety Commission (CPSC) requirements for the United States & ASTM F963, European toy safety standard EN 71, and the Australian toy safety standard AS/NZS 150 8124). It concerns us when we see others trying to create similar products that may cost less, but are frankly not safe. We use high-quality, lightweight, stretchable materials that allow our mermaids to have fun without weighing them down. Swimming in our tails can be learned very quickly with just a bit of practice (see our new swimming instruction video on this page!). We personally believe swimmers ages 5 and younger or under 20 kilos (45 pounds) should not use a tail with a monofin. We have realistic-looking toddler tails that will still let these young mermaids feel like real mermaids.
We encourage parents, public pools, and other facilities to use their best judgment to decide if you are ready for our tails. If your child does not know how to perform a dolphin kick proficiently then they are not ready to swim in our tails and monofins. However, with a little bit of practice, your mermaid can be swimming proficiently in no time by following our videos and guidelines, but please have them learn how to learn this kick before putting the fabric tail on.
We are grateful for the privilege we have of helping children dream and to see kids be active and imaginative in their play again! We thank you for being part of our Fin Fun family and we are confident you will be happy with your Fin Fun products!
