Looking for some beach and mermaid themed towel for your child for your next surf and beach holiday?
Here we look at child size towels that fit over your kids whole body, so not only can they dry themselve's in style, they can also wear them when getting changed and having fun on the beach or when at the swimming pool.
There are 4 mermaid, ocean and sea life themed towels each made from cotton and all comfortable, soft and grea at drying. There is one made of microfiber materials which is great if you're looking for a quick drying mermaid towel for your kid too.
Because they are all hooded they can be worn and as well as helping with drying, they can protect against the sun and also be laid down to lay on when at the beach or side of a pool for the day.
If you're looking for boys ocean themed towels, some of the towels below have designs for them too. Naval designs, sea life plastered all over them, even shark towels can be purchased from the same companies that make the mermaid beach towels for kids.
Comparison of Kids Mermaid Towels
This comparison of kids mermaid towels and childrens change robes was a fun review for us. We have a couple of our own robes and towels, some being microfiber and others thick and fluffy and warm.
Ours are nowhere near as cool as these kids ocean and childrens mermaid towels though, shame we aren't half the size.
If you're looking for a warm, amazing ocean themed towels for your little ones, you're in the right place.
Our best ranked mermaid kids towel is the Mud Pie Baby Bath Towel. It comes with a hood, like all the others do, as hooded towels are the best as you don't need to use them all the time, you can use them as a normal drying towel or put it on them and they can put the hood over their head.
What we love about hooded towels for kids is that it also protects them from the sun, so if you're on the beach and your child has just been swimming in the ocean and their sunscreen might have washed off or is fading. With one of the mermaid and shark hooded towels, you know they can get head and body protection from the sun wearing one.
We just love the design of the Mud Pie Hooded Towel, it's by far our favourite design. It looks the smartest, is hard wearing and durable as well as being soft, what more could you ask for.
In second, third and fourth are Disney Little Mermaid Hooded Towels, they all have a similar design, but their main difference is the material used to make them.
Ranked 2nd and 3rd are both made from cotton and soft and thick. Number 4 is made of microfiber so is also soft but thinner than the other designed towels. One advantage to this is that it packs away smaller, so when you're not using it, it isn't taking up too much space.
Because it's thinner and the qualities of the material, it also dries more quickly too. So number 4 would be our go to if you're child or yourself will be using a towel more than once in a day or if you have fewer occasions to dry the towels off, because of this it's far more practical.
Whatever mermaid hooded towel you choose, we're sure you and your child will love them!

This is a review of the Disney Little Mermaid Ariel Cotton Hooded Towel
If you are looking for a mermaid hooded towel you cannot get more classic than an Ariel little mermaid towel. This little towel is perfectly suited for children aged 3-7 years old. Making bath time or pool time much more fun. With the distinct Ariel appearance of the towel your child will feel like Disney princess as well as a mermaid!
The towel is and super absorbent, the towel measuring 22" x 22" however is actually quite small that I think although its says up to age 7 I feel its more like maximum age of 3 due to the openning of the neck and hood size.
It is a particularily colourful ariel design, it is machine washable however I feel the quality could be a little better there are some white threads in random places.
- Ariel the little mermaid design
- Colourful and vibrant
- Cosy and soft
- The quality is not the best
- Also the size is much smaller than it suggests, I would recommend up to the age of 3 not 7.
For a fan of the little Mermaid this is a fab little gift however if your looking after longevity and planning on regular use this may not be the one for your little one.
This is a review of the Athaelay Hooded Mermaid Towel
The Athaelay Hooded Mermaid Towel is made from a premium long staple cotton that is made from combining untwisted yarn and with a regular stitch and neat terry.
Recommended between ages 1-5 years of age from toddlers to kids. This is a fun and bright coloured design that incorporates flowing pink mermaid hair as well as mermaid friends of fish, starfish and sea horses.
Along with the towel you also get a randomly selected finger puppet, which are likely to be a lion, monkey pig, frog, bear, sheep or fox what would have been more appropriate would be the option for a sea animal finger puppet to go with the mermaid towel.
Particularly light for just over 300 grams. Measuring 24 x 48 inches in size, with the hood size being just over 10.5 inches by 10 inches with lots of room. These are thick, fluffy, soft and durable making it perfect for time outdoors, at the beach, after a swimming lesson.
These towels are wind resistant which also works great for taking your little ones out to the beach in windy surfy conditions and still keep warm and feel comfortable. On the other hand when its hot outside this towel is breathable. Each side of the towel has a plastic snap making it easy to wear and slip on and off.
Once its got all wet and dirty, you can wash in the machine on a cold wash.
It is great to see that after a few washes there has been no fade and the quality of the colours and stitches is still the same.
- Colourful and vibrant
- Starfish, fish and seahorse in design too
- For ages 1-5
- Soft and thick fabric
- Machine washable
This is a high quality mermaid towel that even comes with a free finger puppet!
This is a review of NovForth Kids Hooded Mermaid Towel
The kids mermaid hooded by NovForth towel is a beautifully pink and a cosy design. Measures 24"x36" in full-length and 24"X24" in folded-size with a 11.4x12" hood. The towel is suitable for those age 1-6 particularly growing toddlers. The design pictures the user as a mermaid in a clam, it is a simple design yet very cute!
The towel is made from a soft and sturdy fabric great of children needing to keep warm after playing in the water and needing to dry off, whether in the bath or outside in the paddling pool or beach. The quality of the towel is excellent with hand stitched edges.
The fabric is made from microfibre and is particularily absorbent and is suitable for sensitive skin as well as both hand washing or machine washing. It isn't the thickest of fabrics so personally its best for indoor swimming, bathing or holidays abroad. Not being so thick has its pluses being able to pack it away easily.
- Colourful and bright
- Lovely in clam design
- Thin enough to pack away easily
- Good quality
- Machine washable
- Simple design
- Too thin for colder uses
This is a pretty and cute mermaid hooded towel with is thin but makes it easy to pack away in your own little mermaid clam bag!
