LOL @ Dollar Tree

I was in Dollar Tree and passed by this Mermaid display:


Something about it made me do a double take and go over for a closer look:



LOLOL, now that I'm looking at these photos, I kinda regret not getting her. If she's still there the next time I go to the store, I'll get her and wipe away the off center eye so I can have myself a Mermaid Cyclops.

  2. LOL. Although it's true, there's something about being so askew that's a little charming!

  3. Lol!!!!!! That is so funny! Lol!! Yes, please take her home. The poor doll will probably not get purchased. The QC person must have been drunk.

    1. Sarah, it's only a matter of time before Monster High does a freaky fusion of one. They already have a Cyclops and a Mermaid, so why not, lol.

  5. Wow, there's poor quality control, and just not giving a hoot.

    1. Anderson, just last weekend I saw my first mermaid horror movie on YouTube. It was pretty intense, lol. I never really thought of mermaids as scary before.

  8. Note to self: When a post from Muff starts out with 'LOL'...don't take a swig of juice while reading...LOL. Mattel's consumer complaint department is poppin' their collar right about now.

    1. Monster, that's one of the fun things about the dollar store. Even if it's junk, it's still only a dollar.

    2. And some things can be repainted or recycled to fit your dolls' needs

  16. At first I thought it was just the effect of photographing through the plastic but obviously not. I hope you do get her and we see photographs after you have removed the other eye. She will definitely be OOAK.

    1. Carrickters, you cant get more OOAK than a one eyed mermaid. I bet I could sell her on eBay.

  17. That's just plain wrong! I'm laughing and shaking my head at the same time.

    1. Jewell, C'mon. Isn't it just a little bit right? Look how special she is. Stands out in a crowd, dresses how she wants - quite the empowering role model I say!

  18. Poor gal -- she's probably always swimming sideways! You may need a cyclops mermaid.

    1. "She's probably always swimming sideways!" Smaller, that made me laugh for a good minute.

  19. This Barbie is a very 'poor', because she has eyes in the wrong place ;) She is like a cyclops mermaid.

    1. IHime, I've seen some weird stuff, but nothing like one eye upside down.

    2. There are more things in heaven and earth... I bet the dollar store dolls still hold things to amaze us. ;)

    1. LOL, Major! Maybe a handsome merman was going down the isle and she wanted a look without being too obvious.
