Our girls ,7 and 9, love this dvd, so much in fact they have watched the whole thing 3 times. It came along on May vacation and summer vacation. Each time we were in a a pool, the girls pretended to be mermaids and took on the name of one of the characters from the show! We have since gone on to buy season 2 and 3. Can't wait for season 4 to come out! Let op, it is in English, but no problem for bilingual kids, with Dutch subtitles. Great stories, great acting!
