The Sea Wees,
first released by Kenner in 1979, were little mermaid dolls
(bath toys) with long hair to brush. They each came with a
little baby, a little pet (like a walrus, bear, bird, etc.), a
comb, and a sponge that they could float in. They had names
like Sandy, Frosta, Shelly, Camille, Stormy, and Coral. There
were different varieties, such as the tropical themed Sea Wees
Tropigals and the artic themed Sea Wees Icey Gals. There were
other accessories as well, such as a seashell lagoon.
Related to the Sea Wees were the Shimmers
(released in the mid 80's by Kenner). Some of the Shimmers
had wings, and some were Centaurs (half-human, half-horse).
Like the Sea Wees, the Shimmers can with very long hair and
their own brushes.
