Mermaid Rain is a saltwater mermaid from the English Channel. She loves to collect treasures from the bottom of the ocean, and is always making things from the stuff she finds! While she spends most of her time in the ocean, she likes to travel upstream to explore rivers and lakes as well. Being a saltwater mermaid, she can’t breathe the freshwater that rivers and lakes are made of, but she can hold her breath for a really long time – one of the perks of being a mermaid!

Since it’s so cold in the winter, Rain prefers to come ashore to visit her land friends! When she’s not splashing around in their swimming pools (and sometimes even their baths!), she dries herself off and grows a very handy pair of legs. If she touches water her tail reappears, but Mermaid Rain has a magical necklace that means she doesn’t have to be wet to keep her tail. The necklace carries a part of the ocean inside it, so she can lie in the sun all day long and show off her tail to her human friends!

When instructed, the children enter the swimming pool, to meet Mermaid Rain for the first time. At first, she might seem a little shy, circling around the swimming pool, underwater. She’ll soon surface, and gift some of the children with shells. This means she feels safe and wants to play! Mermaid Rain will quickly turn cheerful as she softly splashes her tail, watch out, you might get a little wet here! Then, when Mermaid Rain feels really comfortable she’ll swim out from the water and onto land where the children can fully see, and touch her tail, although don’t touch for too long as she’s very ticklish! Mermaid Rain will introduce herself and answers any questions. With help from some the parents the children can now enter the water. Mermaid Rain will swim with the children and play a number of different games with them. She’ll let the children ride on her shoulders, she’ll show off some of her best mermaid tricks and twirls, and most importantly she’ll get the children to help her find the treasure chest key, that unlocks all the treasures, (goodie bags).
