I decided to do this since NO ONE has ever done a great chronological guide about Ariel’s most notable dolls. From Tyco to Simba Toys, to Mattel they’re all here Collect & Enjoy! 


+ To me the most beautiful is the 1992 tyco, she’s so stunning with those sparkly eyes! Also I love the 1997 facemold.

I shampooed and blow dried Ariel’s hair today ❤️ I don’t like when they’re full of hairspray and gel and are all hard, its much more flowy and free now 😍 perfect mermaid hair 🌊🐠🐟💁🏼
