Disney has finally found their Prince Eric!

The live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has been looking for their perfect Prince Eric for what feels like forever and they have finally cast Jonah Hauer-King as the dashing sailor.

According to Deadline, the actor, who has starred in Little Women and World On Fire, won the role over Cameron Cuffe.

Apparently it was a close call for the casting director but the British actor pipped Cameron to the post.

Harry Styles was also considered for the role but the Lights Up singer declined the part in the live-action movie because he is focusing on his music career.

The musician spoke to Capital Breakfast about why he didn’t accept the part, “I had, you know, a meeting with Rob Marshall the director, who is the most wonderful man, he’s great. And it was just, honestly, it was just a few things.”

“I think it’s gonna be amazing, obviously it’s an amazing film,” the Sign of the Times singer added.

Jonah will star alongside the stunning Halle Bailey, who will play Ariel in the Disney movie.

The movie will be produced and directed by Rob Marshall. Lin-Manuel Miranda, John DeLuca and Marc Platt will also produce.

Melissa McCarthy will reportedly star as Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder. 

The team have yet to cast King Triton but Javier Bardem is a contender. 

The Little Mermaid remake is certainly going to be better than we expected thanks to this stellar cast.


Many of us were absolutely RAISED on Disney when we were kids. We grew up with the incredible cinema releases of The Lion King, Aladdin, Cinderella, Mulan and The Little Mermaid, and it changed our lives forever.

The Disney princess role has changed as the generations got older (and more feminist), bringing more progressive films with 3D female characters such as Brave, Frozen, Moana, The Princess and the Frog and Tangled.

Kiera Knightly recently spoke out against the films, saying that her three-year-old daughter is banned from watching them in her home.

When asked why, she said to "rescue yourself!" from the prince is a far better message to send to young women; "Cinderella waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t." Right on, gal, right on. Fight the power.

However, when we were watching the classic princess films as children, I highly doubt we realised at the time just how YOUNG they all are, which arguably makes the movies seem a tad creepy.

It's basically teens getting sexualised and sent off to live with a man who has privilege over them forever.

For decades, young girls have been seeing these characters as role models; they're compassionate, fierce, caring, brave and highly intelligent.

Many of the gals are preparing for marriage, but they're in their mid-teens. Seems a little weird, considering the men they're marrying are often at least ten years older.

For example. Pocahontas' age in the film was never confirmed, but in real life she actually met John Smith when she was just a 10 year old girl. Ew.

First up: Princess Jasmine. Aladdin's bae was only 15-years-old in the film, as a recent The Mary Sue article pointed out. So when she's dressed in red and is seducing Jafar (a creepy old man), she's officially underage…

princess jasmine disney GIF

A key portion of the film revolves around the fact that she's obliged to marry a prince before her sixteenth birthday, which is three days away.

The Mary Sue also noted that Jasmine is a highly sexualised character, with Jafar commanding the genie to force her to love him. Alright…we're officially disturbed.

Plus, that waist-line is a fantasy; she'd fit maybe half an organ in there if she's lucky.

HuffPost has previously pointed out that none of the 'official' Disney princesses are older than 19, even though most of them are wed or engaged by the end of each of their respective movies.

Ariel is a sixteen-year-old who claims to be an adult, while Eric is the ripe old age of 18. So in today's day-and-age, it would be illegal for them to marry.

Granted, these films are purely fantasy, but it's pretty strange how they design the princesses as sexualised teenagers who always end up with an older man.

If this next one doesn't shock you, we don't know what will. Snow White is just 14 YEARS OLD when she meets her prince, and escapes from a cruel queen who tries to cut out her heart out of vanity.

The prince also kisses her while she's KO'd; problematic as f*ck.

snow white kiss GIF

Kristen Bell has also pointed out issues with Snow White as a film, which was the first colour Disney animation and was released back in 1938.

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” Bell says she asked her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” Hello, consent?

Fairy tales don’t have a stable form, and every era rewrites centuries old fairy tales to fit it's specific agenda or zeitgeist. Many Disney princesses were based on the 1812 Brothers Grimm tales.

drunk kristen wiig GIF

They changed their book of stories to adapt to 19th-century German bourgeois family values, so why can't we update them in 2019?

Cinderella was transformed into a live-action remake recently, but ZERO alterations were made. 

Our Chinese hero warrior Mulan, famous for it's WHOPPER tunes like I'll Make a Man Out of You: she's also sixteen. Yet she has to nurture a fragile toxic male ego, and marries him in the end.

Ok, then, it took a woman to fix a man's dodgy job and her reward is a lifetime of obedience. Sleeping Beauty's Aurora was also 16-years-old, and we've got another classic case of non-consent.

sleeping beauty kiss GIF

While Disney has 100 percent made improvements for it's female characters, like Frozen's Queen Elsa and Princess Anna especially, and Brave's Merida (also 16); it's important to be aware of the classic films and their morals.

The live-action Aladdin doesn't arrive for another few months (May 24 to be exact), we have no idea if Jasmine will be a more marriage-appropriate age. The actress cast to play her is 25-years-old, at least.

Naomi Scott isn't a teenager, so let's hope her character isn't either.  Scott told Entertainment Weekly that her character’s goal is “really to protect her people, to do right by them," in December, so we have high hopes.

The eye-wateringly hot Marwan Kenzari has been cast as Jafar in the live-action flick, and he looks FAR younger than the animated character. He's a certified thirst trap.

We're relieved they're moving away from the creepy-old-man game, thank God. The movie looks intriguing, if just for a blue Will Smith as the genie. (Check out those memes about him, they're amazing)

Bring on the badass empowered female princesses, like Meghan Markle and the Thai princess Ubolratana who recently attempted to run for Prime Minister. Get it, gurls.

In case you've been under a rock for the last 14 hours, you've most likely been shaken to your core by Harry Styles' Rolling Stone cover.

Did we mention that he's shirtless, on the cover? Tattoos, nips and all? The headline reads; "Sex, psychedelics, and the secrets of stardom…" so it's bound to be glorious content.

The 25-year-old recently turned down the role of Prince Eric in the live-action portrayal of The Little Mermaid, but rumours are rife that his second album is about to drop in September.


A post shared by Harry Styles (@harrygotmestyles) on

The upcoming cover is set to be released on September 3, and the race to the news stands will be officially on.

Of course, Harry Styles fans went WILD on Twitter, with one even offering to sell her lung for a cover. "Serious DMs only," @achangeofhes wrote.

We've combined the best reactions we've seen on the social media platform so far, and they're borderline hysterical. We're loving it. Long may the furore surrounding the singer/actor last, we say.

1. The Whatsapp group notifications were suddenly going off 24/7

2. Harry…isn't pure??

3.  Good luck, fellow warriors

4. We're pretty sure there will never be a day where Harry doesn't leave us speechless, but okay…

5. We never saw his chastity belt but just made an assumption?

6. Thank you for blessing our timelines with this glorious content:


8. Oh, he's winning. The boy has saved September.

9. No other models exist.

10. Who gave him permission to do this to us?

11. How DARE he?

12. Wiping away those tears:

13. Can we survive extreme heat? Hell no. He's speeding up climate breakdown over here.

In conclusion: WE WEREN'T READY.

Rolling Stone, you unfairly targeted us at our weakest moment with this angelic presence, and we don't know whether to thank you or hate you for having this effect on us.

Good day sir.

Harry Styles has declined the role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid remake and we're honestly gutted about it. However, Harry isn’t the only actor who could play the dashing prince.

We decided to put together a list of who should play Eric now that Harry is out of the running and we’ve got to admit it’s a tough call.


A post shared by SHEmazing! (@shemazingie) on

1: Ian Harding.

Ian played English teacher and Aria’s beau on Pretty Little Liars. We may have swooned over Ezra and his charming ways in the earlier seasons, but we were swiftly creeped out when he was revealed as ‘A’. Ian may be a talented actor, but we can’t help but feel like he’s a little bit too old for this role?

2: Shawn Mendes

Lost In Japan singer Shawn Mendes has also been tipped as a potential Prince Eric, but other than his resemblance to the dashing royal, he doesn’t really suit the role considering he has no acting experience.

3: Darren Criss

Glee and American Crime Story actor Darren Criss is one of the strongest contenders for the role of Prince Eric. The Emmy award winning star has already played Eric in a live performance of The Little Mermaid at The Hollywood Bowl. He certainly looks the part.

4: Timothée Chalamet

The Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name actor is one of the most popular young actors at the moment so we’re not surprised to see his name mentioned alongside Harry Styles. However, with so many upcoming projects, including a role in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, we feel like Mr Chalamet may be too busy for this project.

5: Sebastian Stan

I, Tonya and Captain America actor Sebastian Stan would be the perfect Prince Eric. Are we slightly biased because we’ve been madly in love with him since he played Carter Baizen on Gossip Girl? Yes… but seriously, can someone give Sebastian Stan the role of Ariel's true love?

Who do you want to play Prince Eric?


Disney-owned cable network Freeform has bit back against the "poor, unfortunate souls" criticising the casting of the live-action The Little Mermaid remake.

Halle Bailey has scored the role of Ariel in the new film, and a torrent of racist backlash has ensued as a result.

Groups online have claimed the original has now been "ruined" by a black actress earning the role, and that the Danish author of the fairytale would have wanted her to be a Caucasian actress.

The hashtag #NotMyAriel even trended after the casting announcement, with racism clearly alive and well. It's rare that an actress-of-colour gets a protagonist role, especially in a Disney film, so it's a huge deal.

In an open letter referencing Ursula the sea witch, the network reminded the ridiculous critics of the new Ariel that the tale is a "work of fiction" and that the casting of the "highly talented, gorgeous" Bailey is "inspired".

The letter reads: "Ariel … is a mermaid. She lives in an underwater kingdom in international waters and can legit swim wherever she wants…But for the sake of argument, let's say that Ariel, too, is Danish."

"Danish mermaids can be black because Danish *people* can be black."

It added: "If you still cannot get past the idea that choosing the incredible, sensational, highly talented, gorgeous Halle Bailey is anything other than INSPIRED casting that it is because she 'doesn't look like the cartoon one', oh boy, do I have some news for you… about you."

"Ariel can sneak up to the surface at any time with her pals Scuttle and the *ahem* Jamaican crab Sebastian and keep that bronze base tight. Black Danish people, and thus mer-folk, can also *genetically* have red hair," Freeform continued. SLAY.

Hilarious rapper and actress Awkwafina, who is set to play Scuttle in the film, responded to criticism by saying:


A post shared by Chloe and Halle (@chloexhallebailey) on

"I think that she's going to play an amazing mermaid. She's an incredible singer, incredible actress and I'm really excited to have her as a Disney princess."

The original Little Mermaid herself, Jodi Benson, has also had her say about the casting. “The most important thing is to tell the story," she started, via Comicbook.com.

"And we have, as a family, we have raised our children, and for ourselves, that we don’t see anything that’s different on the outside. I think that the spirit of a character is what really matters," she continued.

“We need to be storytellers," she added. "And no matter what we look like on the outside, no matter our race, our nation, the colour of our skin, our dialect, whether I’m tall or thin, whether I’m overweight or underweight, or my hair is whatever colour, we really need to tell the story."

"I know for Disney that they have the heart of storytelling, that’s really what they’re trying to do. They want to communicate with all of us in the audience so that we can fall in love with the film again.”

Bailey is half of the R&B duo Chloe x Halle with her sister, Chloe. Halle has yet to speak out about the backlash, which is probably wise. Don't waste energy on bigots, girl.


A post shared by Matty Lin (@matty_lin) on

The new adaptation will include songs from the 1989 animated Disney classic and new tunes from original composer Alan Menken and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Production on Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid is set to begin in 2020. Hopefully the ignorant white trashbags dissing Halle will have fled the cinema by then…

Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid has finally cast it's Ariel, and it's the perfect choice. 

Halle Bailey, of Chloe x Halle fame, is set to become part of Disney's world, isn't it neat? The R&B singer is tapped to play Ariel in the next adaptation, directed by Rob Marshall.

The director has spent months meeting with talent, and insiders claim that Bailey has been a clear front runner from day one of auditions.

Disney have received praise online for casting more diverse actors and artists for their new cinematic offerings, with Bailey becoming the first black princess in a live-action film.


A post shared by frozencast (@frozencastofficial) on

“After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” Marshall said in a statement.

The incredible cast already includes Jacob Tremblay and the hilarious Awkwafina, of Crazy Rich Asians and Oceans 8 fame. Melissa McCarthy is also rumoured to be playing the sea-witch Ursula.

The Little Mermaid will incorporate original songs from the 1989 animated hit film, as well as adding new song from original composer Alan Menken and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

Miranda is producing the film along with Marshall, Marc Platt and John DeLuca, so it's set to be absolutely amazing. David Magee has written the script, with Jane Goldman having written a previous draft.

Menken wrote the iconic original music from the film, including songs like Under the Sea, Kiss the Girl and Part of Your World. Our childhoods are essentially being reignited and we couldn't be happier.

The movie followed mermaid Ariel's journey after falling in love with Prince Eric, a human. She trades in her voice for a pair of legs, and it gets fairly chaotic after that…


A post shared by (@chloexhalle) on

The role will be Bailey's debut for a feature film, following her success as one part of singing duo Chloe x Halle since 2015.

The pair rose to fame after posting YouTube covers of Beyoncé before the superstar discovered them and signed them to her record label. They've since opened for Queen Bey on her Lemonade tour.

Halle also stars in the Freeform series ​​​​​​Grown-ish, so she's got some acting skills in the bag already.

Taylor Swift was renowned for her Fourth of July parties in the past, but now it's all about New Year's Eve bashes- in COSTUME no less.

The Reputation star has posted an image to Instagram featuring a slew of celebrities dressed as their childhood heroes, and it's pretty damn unreal.

The singer dressed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and we're sure many of her fans may just rush to get her gorgeous red hair and emerald sequin lewk…


A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

She captioned the post:

“Mary Poppins, Audrey, Ariel, Ms. Frizzle, Cinderella, Gwen Stefani, Mr. Toad, Avril, Nancy Drew, Posh Spice, Rizzo, Frida Kahlo, Steve Irwin, Dorothy, " she wrote, alongside four star-studded images.

“This new year we decided to dress up as our childhood heroes. Sending you all love and hope going into 2019."

The party featured Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds (being his gas self) and Gigi Hadid, among others, and our FOMO is real.

Just LOOK at how insanely good Gigi Hadid werks the Mary Poppins costume:

No fair.

Where were our invites, though? Must have been misplaced with all the Christmas post and fan mail…

This is a party we'd KILL to attend. Keep slaying, Taylor. With the Grammy's approaching, the star is sure to achieve even more fierceness in 2019.

First things first, I learnt far more from the film industry’s female ‘villains’ than I did from the so-called ‘heroines’. The ‘villains’ are simply exaggerated versions of the women some of us are desperate to be, but don’t feel brave enough to cast off the mask.

maleficent GIF

As far as Hollywood is concerned, there are only two types of women- it’s your typical scenario of the femme fatale, a deviant who utilises her wily powers of seduction, or the Virgin Mary.

The angel or the devil, the child-like heroine or the evil queen. It’s limited at best, but there’s something so fascinating about the ‘villains’, they are more anti-hero than purely evil. No hero is all good, and no villain is all bad.

Society has always been suspicious of powerful women, it demonises them to try and create a backlash, to attempt to convince us that their ambition is wrong. It also plays the insanity card WAY too often to disregard them.

harley quinn suicide girls GIF

Think of all your classic Disney villains, most of them are childless. This creates the preconception immediately that they are somehow unnatural, they are barren and cold and ruthless.

Ursula, the Queen of Hearts, the White Witch, Miranda Priestley, Bellatrix Lestrange.

Anything and everything is done to use the audiences’ preconceived idea of the natural to focus your judgements on how inherently wrong it is for a woman to want more than the cards she has been dealt.

After all, the idea of a witch came about from fear of female sexuality in the 15th century, women who were single and childless were assumed to be evil.

charlize theron GIF

We are fixated on these women because they revel in being all the things that we are told we simply cannot be. They allow themselves to get angry, to take action, to get even.

Most of the time they are just portrayed as being obsessed with regaining their youth through whatever means necessary, they use their jealousy to punish young and beautiful female characters. They sneer, they cackle, they are impeccably dressed, and their red lipstick is ALWAYS on point.

Personally I think this is an insult to women everywhere, we are complicated beings and beauty isn’t the pinnacle of our world.

It’s the pinnacle of what our society expects us to be for success and happiness, but women deserve better stories than this. Evil comes in all shapes and sizes, motives can often have substance and a moral grey area.

killbilledit GIF

They define transgression, and cross the imaginary borders into the dark unknown where society has ostracised them. They more than likely live in a lair, with some kind of animal side-kick, and don some luxurious fur coat.

They also always do this while looking flawlessly evil, and are more than likely single. They are portrayed as being loners, as being unwanted, precisely for desiring more than what they are supposed to. The poor men who cross their path are either demolished, disgusted or destroyed.

the little mermaid ursula GIF

Let’s take a look at some of the film industry’s most fabulous villainesses, and we guarantee you that some higher knowledge will be dropped by these fierce females.

Miranda Priestley: Dropping the knowledge bombs left, right and centre.

Based on the Vogue editor-in-chief Anne Wintour, Meryl Streep perfectly embodied the uberboss who terrorised interns day and night, who could make anyone cry over a cerulean blue sweater, and whose soft spoken voice could tear you down brick by brick and leave your self-esteem in tatters.

Meryl Streep Sunglasses GIF by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

A simple “that’s all” and her classic arched eyebrow is all that’s ever needed to destroy everything you thought you knew.

Impossible to please, manipulative, and yet every intern who was unlucky enough to cross her path ended up with the thickest skin imaginable, and this later became their best asset in the cut-throat fashion industry.

A top female executive’s main priority is to teach those who come after her to be the best, because most of the time mediocre men can reach heights that only exceptional women get the opportunity to jump for.

the devil wears prada fashion GIF

Miranda also epitomises the female sacrifice, and society’s obsession with rating women’s worth by their appearances.

The second she has seemingly lost her youth, they replace her with a younger model who is not even close to being as qualified as her.

It’s the only time we ever see a crack in her ice-cold persona, and the audience is given a glimpse into her life, which has revolved around a fashion publication. Her marriage, her family, her career; the impossible juggling balance that every woman is expected to do, like walking tightrope in a circus.

Miranda is fierce as hell, serves blunt reality checks to everyone in sight, and never wastes her time with pretending to be the glowing subservient heroine.

She shows the industry how good she is at her job, without the façade of aiming to please.

Second, is of course, Regina George. The woman who has everyone feeling victimised, second guessing their wardrobe choices and cutting holes in their t-shirts.

mean girls blow kiss GIF by Hollywood Suite

Regina is the constant reminder that appearances and perception go hand-in-hand.

Image is often pivotal to society’s understanding of women, but some of the most famous female characters have twisted this in their favour.

Regina George is queen of the put-downs, every girls wants to be her and every guy wants to get with her. Her power is the shallow angle of popularity, and she uses it to perfection.

Amy Dunne from Gone Girl is another classic example of a beautiful woman using her perceived image to manipulate those around her.

Gone Girl GIF

If you’ve seen the boxcutter scene from the film, you’ll have realised just how evil Amy really is, and how intelligent.

She is easily one of the most dedicated villainesses you’ll see on screen, committing to her plot so much that she writes an entire fake diary to frame her husband of her murder, and writhes around in bucketfuls of blood. Bit much?

Evil in many ways for these characters is constrained by their womanhood; their identity is that of a jealous wife, a vengeful mother, or a scorned partner whose husband has been having an illicit affair.

These stereotypical gender notions limit their depth and complexity which is given to nearly every male villain, they are expected to fit a single mould and heavily penalised if they don’t. These villains push the boundaries, and don’t care about likeability, a rebellious act in today’s world.

101 dalmatians animation GIF

Some of the scariest female villains are those that inflict evil on other women, after all, gals need to stick together. Of the many lessons we can learn from a decent villainess, it’s that women are not the fragile creatures in need of protection that many heroines are conveyed to be.

The most badass female villains twist cultural norms of femininity into something else entirely. We need some more Dark Ladies to get the ideal balance, to show realistic, three-dimensional female characters on screen and on paper.

Power makes poison, but every villainess is a heroine in her own mind.

Disney movies were a staple part of my childhood, and there was one in particular that made me dream of life under the sea. The Little Mermaid has always been one of my favourite Disney movies with its catchy soundtrack, the colourful setting, and Ariel- the determined and caring mermaid.

The original tale comes from 1837 when Hans Christian Andersen penned a gripping fairytale about a young mermaid who is willing to give up everything for the man she loves.

Fast forward to 2018 and Louise O’Neill has released her own adaption of the classic fairytale. Her twist on The Little Mermaid takes place under the waters of the Irish coast. We meet the teenage mermaid Gaia, who dreams of escaping to the surface, away from the clutches of her horrid father.


A post shared by Kat (@katoconnorr) on

The tale is similar to the Disney classic with Gaia falling for the handsome human boy and decides to give up her tail for legs, however, what West-Cork writer O’Neill does is trickle the tale with meaningful feminist messages.

It’s the fairytale every young woman needs to read. Gaia’s naivety shows us just how easily love can fool us. As kids, we fell for the dashing Prince Eric, but the male protagonist in this story will leave you feeling seasick.


A post shared by Louise O' Neill (@oneilllou) on

The Surface Breaks is dark and will make you feel uneasy at times, but that discomfort is necessary because it shines a light on the horrid issues women have to deal with today, including sexual assault and being disrespected solely because of our gender.

This retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's story is a thrilling read, and the powerful ending will leave you gasping for air

The Surface Breaks published by Scholastic is available for €12.99 at Dubray.


The Little Mermaid is one of our favourite movies, and Wonder Woman has definitely reached top of the list too.

But did you catch some very similar points made in both films?

Both movies feature kickass women who have to deal mystical challenges, but did you notice a sequence in the flicks that are basically exactly the same?

In The Little Mermaid, remember when Ariel finds Prince Eric on the beach? Well, it's basically the exact same as to when Diana finds Steve on the beach.

From the way Diana touches Steve's face, to the camera angles and the lighting, everything has an undeniable likeness.

And actually, it wasn't an accident. In an interview with Entertainment WeeklyWonder Woman’s screenwriter, Allan Heinberg, said: “The story as I see it is The Little Mermaid, specifically Disney’s incarnation.”

He added: “This is a woman who has been raised in a very protective, sheltered life, she’s curious about what life is like outside and she wants to have her own experience.

“She wants to be where the people are.”

You learn something new everyday!


There was uproar last year when it was revealed that Chloë Moretz would be playing Ariel in the upcoming live-action version of the classic Disney film, The Little Mermaid.

The uproar wasn't over the casting of Chloë as such, but over the fact that Ariel would have blonde hair rather than red in the film. 

Since Chloë pulled out of filming, a very well known redheaded actress has put her hat in the ring to be considered for the role.


A post shared by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on

Taking to Instagram, Lindsay Lohan posted a snap of herself side-by-side with a shot of Ariel from the Disney cartoon.

Sharing the picture with her 5.9 million followers, the actress captioned the shot "I will sing again, as #Ariel," along with a list of conditions such as that her sister Ali Lohan be cast to sing alongside her in the film.

The caption was later deleted and replaced with the simple hashtag #TheLittleMermaid. 

Image result for good luck lindsay lohan the parent trap

The star perviously posted an image of Ariel to her Instagram, telling her followers that the mermaid is her "dream role."

The image has since been deleted, along with all but nine of her Instagram images. 

Lindsay fans seem divided in the comments section under the most recent image, with some supporting the actress in her pursuit of Disney stardom, while others claim she is "too old" for the role.




Are you a total Disney geek or do you know a person who is? 

Well then, it's time to get very, VERY excited, because you can now buy the clam bed from The Little Mermaid. 

Little mermaid bed is a shell shaped bed. This princess bed will also protect your little girl, and help her to dream and become a under sea princess.

The beautiful mer-tastic bed is available through Portuguese interior company Circu, which makes "magical furniture."

This bed is an absolute dream come true, but sadly is made for children (and short people perhaps?). 

Sky B Plane makes the crib-to-bed transition as painless as possible. The decorative suitcases are storage compartments and allow the kid to climb up and down the airplane

The Little Mermaid bed is six-and-a-half-feet tall, and is equipped with a blue night-light, so you can feel like you're floating in the ocean.


Now, before you start planning your mermaid DREAM, it is important to note that this magical bed is NOT cheap (naturally!)

The bed costs a whopping $16,000 (15,000), which is absolutely outrageous… but if you were to win the lotto it may be OK? 


If mermaids aren't your thing, which would be weird, the company also sell other amazing beds that include hot air balloons and rockets.  

Rocky Rocket is a armchair completely handmade with light and sound system controlled by a mobile app.

Pop these gorgeous beds on your wish list if you fancy it, but remember "the seaweed is always greener, in somebody else's lake."

They are very fun to look at!
