Mini-Mers Mermaid Pool Party

Description

Mermaid Splash by John Paulsen

Ready, set, swim! High energy and sports-driven Mini-Mers is our most popular mermaid pool party package and was designed for active kids that just won't stay out of the water. You might want to set the birthday cake back from the pool on this one because it's going to be a splash! This mermaid pool party is "fintastic" as a birthday party for girls and is just as fun when boys who like to swim are attending too!

This party works rain or shine and can be modified to non-swimming indoors with land activities if needed.

Includes

  • 1 Swimming Mermaid (or merman)
  • 1 Lifeguard
  • Custom Handmade Gift for Birthday Child

Activities

Our party was a huge success. Not only did the kids enjoy the mermaids but the adults were amazed as well. Thank you so much to the mermaids and to you for making our birthday event a memorable one!

I cannot say enough good things about this company! My daughter asked for a Mermaid Birthday Party. I was happily planning along when I came across Sheroes Entertainment from a friend who had done some photography for them. I immediately called and booked a couple mermaids. Virginia was extremely helpful and so nice to work with! And the mermaid?!? Made my daughters birthday dreams come true :) I highly recommend this company if you are looking for a magical experience :)
— Kelly K.
The guests at the club LOVED you. We’ve seen so many great photos of our party. Thanks for making such a great day!

Had a phenomenal time with the Sheroes Mermaids (and Merman), and Pirates at our event. All the Characters were fabulous and fun! Interacted well with all ages. I was especially impressed with how wonderfully they interacted with the kids. Especially liked the conservation message that went along with the Mermaid talk, so that the message was educational as well as magical. Virginia and her crew are kind, fun, helpful and very professional. Whether you are looking for entertainment for a small private party or corporate event, Sheroes is a great company to work with and has a wide variety of entertainment services, not just Mermaids and Pirates (although they are pretty spectacular). Can’t wait to work with them again!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do they really swim?

Yes! Our mermaids don't just sit around, they are extremely dynamic and are known for their in-water games and energy.

What do the mermaids look like?

Please CLICK HERE to meet our incredible mermaids and merman!

I have some modest friends coming. Can the mermaids wear something different?

Yes, we do offer modesty tops that are full coverage from wrists to neck that can be worn under their typical swim tops.

Can I request a specific mermaid?

No mommy, she’s a REAL mermaid.
— Amber, 5

Due to the extremely high demand of our real swimming mermaids (and the reality that they are located across California) we unfortunately cannot guarantee specific mermaid requests.

How large of a pool do I need to have?

Our mermaids have performed in everything from a bathtub the Pacific Ocean! They are approximately 11 ft. long from lands to fin tips in tail. If you have a small pool or spa just let us know to bring activities suitable for the side of a pool deck or small area. We can perform on dryland too!

The Sheroe Mermaid and her two lovely helpers (Malibu and Melody) provided an excellent hour of entertainment for our 9 year old daughters birthday party. We had a group of 12 nine your old’s whom were fully captivated and engaged in the games and stories. Great value and a great idea for a party!

Price

Based on location and time duration

Recommended Ages

  • 8 and up ONLY. If your child is under 8 we believe that "Mini Mers" (above) is the best option for them.
  • Mermaid School private parties are ideal for teens through adults including wedding parties.
  • We have adult-sized rental mermaid tails available for reunion, bachelorette, and parties with friends and can accommodate adults up to 250 lbs.

10 guests MAXIMUM

Space Requirements

Specialty Notes

  • This party is an entertainment offering only and is NOT intended to take the place of regular swim lessons or professional certifications.
  • Participants MUST be able to swim 60m independently without aid/trouble/stopping or they will not be allowed to use tails (even if their friends can).
  • This party's "finstructor" is a human using the same type of fabric tails as the party group. They do not appear in the prosthetic tails as we have found that demoing in the same tails as participants helps participants to better understand the techniques in the party.
  • A signed liability release waiver is required on each participant in Mermaid School private parties.
Our rental tails, such as this one by The2Tails, fit over a standard bathing suit. Guests should wear their normal bathing suits to use the rental tails. Tops are not provided in the rentals.

Aubrey is normally really timid in the water but today I saw her playing all day. Her comfort in the water just soared. She had such a good time!
