The daughters of the sea ponies (or little sisters?), baby sea ponies came with a floatie to keep them upright in the water as well as a sticker, hair ribbon and brush. From the package: Splish, splash… Baby Sea Ponies are learning to swim! Your Baby Sea Pony can float in the tub with her life preserver.
Sea Star w/ duckie floatie
** Sea Star was building a sand castle when a giant wave hit the shore. All her hard work was washed out to sea! “My castle is ruined,” she sighed. “If only I could build one that wouldn’t fall, then my friends could play in it, too.” Picking up her pail and shovel, Sea Star noticed the tide leaving hundreds of bright, sparkling shells on the shore. Quickly, she gathered as many shells as she could fit in her pail.
“What are you doing, Sea Star?” asked Mr. Octopus who was sunbathing on a nearby rock. “I’m going to build a castle with these shells,” she answered, excited about her idea. Mr. Octopus called Mrs. Jellyfish and together they made a magic paste to hold the shells in place.By sunset, Sea Star had the biggest, most beautiful castle on the beach. That night, she invited all her ocean friends to a party in her lovely new shell castle. Even the waves dancing around the castle were happy that it didn’t tumble.
*When it’s time for a party on the sea floor, Sea Star collects the prettiest shells and builds the biggest most spectacular shell castle. She invites all her friends and they dance in the moonlight until the sun rises the next day.
Sea Shimmer w/ turtle floatie
**Every day at dusk, Sea Shimmer watches the sun cast its rays over the sea before it drifts into dreamland. Last night, while watching the sunset, Sea Shimmer heard a faint voice calling for help. Following the voice to an inlet, she found a beautiful mermaid tangles in a mound of seaweed. Gently, Sea Shimmer removed the wet grass to free the mermaid. The mermaid whispered her thanks as she dove into the water.
The next evening, while watching the sun go down, Sea Shimmer thought about the mermaid. “I wonder what her name is and where she lives?” she pondered. Suddenly, a brilliant rainbow appeared in the sky and a gleaming pearl wrapped in seaweed washed up to Sea Shimmer’s tail. When the wave pulled back, the words “See You Soon” appeared in the sand. Sea Shimmer smiled because she had found a very special friend.
*Every day at dusk, Sea Shimmer watches Mr. Sun cast his rays over the sea before he drifts into dreamland. Then she splashes intonthe sea for a nightly swim. She often meets strange and beautiful creatures from the sea, like the magical mermaid who gave her a shimmery pearl.
Backstroke w/ fish floatie
**Splasher was playing with her turtle float on the shore when she heard splashing coming from the cove by the rocks. Quietly, she hid behind a rock to watch. Another baby was sea pony was in the shallow water, bobbing its fins and flippers up and down. She was so graceful, gliding about in the water, just like they learned in swimming class.
“What a wonderful swimmer!” Splasher said out loud. The baby sea pony looked up in response to Splasher’s voice. “Can you teach me to swim like that?” Splasher asked, joining her in the water. The two baby sea ponies swam and played together until it was time to go home.
“You swim so well that I’m going to call you Backstroke,” Splasher laughed. From then on, Backstroke the baby sea pony, was known as the best swimmer in the sea and taught all the other sea ponies how to do the backstroke.
*Backstroke swims better than any of the baby sea ponies. She is so graceful gliding backwards about in the water that all her baby sea pony friends want her to give them lessons. What fun they have splashing around learning to swim.
Tiny Bubbles w/ duckie floatie
**One sunny day, Tiny Bubbles was feeling especially adventurous. She decided to play near the old wrecked ship on the bottom of the ocean. To get down that deep, she let some air out of her float. Under the water she spoted a sea urchin with a rusty old key inside. Tiny Bubbles thought that the key might fit a sea cheat that was in a giant rock. When she put the key into the lock, the lid popped open to reveal hundreds of beautiful necklaces, bracelets and rings. “A treasure trove!” exclaimed Tiny Bubbles. She carried the treasure to the surface and gave each of her Baby Sea Pony friends a gift from the deep.
*Tiny Bubbles is happiest when exploring underwater. She lets the air out of her float to get down really deep to uncover all kinds of treasures. All her baby pony friends always share in the excitement as she comes to the surface with her wonderful surprises.
Splasher w/ turtle floatie
**Every Tuesday, all of the baby sea ponies attended their nursery swimming school. One day, Splasher was practicing her baby backstroke before class started. “Stroke, stroke, stroke, and breathe,” she counted softly to herself. Her turtle float bobbed up and down with her as the waves rose and fell.
Just then a giant wave tossed her high into the air. When she came back down her tail smacked the water with a loud SLAP… and splashed Tiny Bubbles right in the face! That splash of water had soooo much sunshine and salt in it, that Tiny Bubbles’ hair dried into many, many curls and ringlets. Splasher thought Tiny Bubbles’ hair was so pretty that she gave her a collection of colorful sea shells to wear as barrettes in her curls.
*Splish, splash, that’s how Splasher got her name. She never really liked to practice her swimming strokes, all she wants to do is jump and splash. After school she rushes off to play hide and seek in the waves and to splash everyone she finds.
Surf Rider w/ fish floatie
**Surf Rider loves to catch the tail of a big wave and ride it while it comes crashing down. One day, when the sea was flat, stretching endlessly in every direction, Surf Rider wished for a giant wave to ride. Spotting a group of dolphins swimming by, Surf Rider called out, “Please swish your tail and make a nice wave for me to ride upon!” The waves that the dolphins made were the biggest that Surf Rider had ever seen. She giggled with delight as she and her fish float rode the waves for the rest of the day.
*Surf Rider loves to catch the tail of a big wave and ride it while it comes crashing down. She will stop any dolphin she can find to ask it to swish its tail and make nice waves for her to ride on.
