A rising part of the micro-collectibles craze, TPF Toys’ Splashlings made a, well, splash, last year, and now the second wave is swimming ashore. Arriving at Walmart in February, Sam Walton’s former “five & dime” joins the ranks of other major retailers in stocking these fun, sea-dwelling friends. From Mike Bowling, creator of Pound Puppies, Splashlings are “An Ocean Full of Friends,” and the new wave brings 100 new mermaids, ocean friends, gems, shells and treasures join the Splashlings family. We have a few Wave 1 sets here at HQ, and The Rock Daughters™ love ’em.
Splashlings follows five mermaid guardians of the sea as they encounter adventures, fend off dastardly Mer-Pirates, and make new friends while protecting the underwater kingdom of Orabel.
