The toy of the summer for younger children has likely already been found in the UK: Splashlings. What has been described as an "undersea pocket-money range" by Toy News has already blown launch expectations in the UK. While these toys are already incredibly popular in the United States, according to insiders the demand is going to increase manifold over the next few months.

Splashlings takes advantage of the popularity of mermaid and seaside themes, mixing together the bright colors and cutesy look of the dolls to make them a "must have" for any young girl.

This collectible line has characters from all over under the sea. The dolls have movable body parts, including the movable tails. They come with special treasures, including gems, shells, and gold coins. Adding to the popularity are the animated webisodes that can be viewed online with or without purchase.

The fun part about some of these toys is that you can buy packs at Toys 'R Us and have a surprise when you open up the foil packet, much like you'd do with collectible cards.

For now, many girls will have some trouble finding the toys, especially with the prevalence of the TV and online presences. The next wave of toys will go into store just in time for the holiday season.
