Since premiering almost 20 years ago in 1989, Disney’s The Little Mermaid has remained a constant presence in pop culture with a host of merchandise continuing to be made to this day. Despite its fairy tale origins and focus on a 16 year old Disney princess, The Little Mermaid has still managed to garner a loyal fan base across genders with some brilliant clothes, accessories, and toys designed purely for consumption by the male demographic.
Many of these Disney’s The Little Mermaid items made for men are super stylish and would definitely help any Disney fan make a statement. Here are my top five.
The Little Mermaid Castle Silhouette T-Shirt
This creatively designed black t-shirt features Ariel swimming in front of her castle. The dark silhouette of the character contrasts brilliantly against the magical glow of the kingdom behind her. So much better than those cheap t-shirts from the 90s which just used a copy of the movie poster. Available from Amazon.com
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Icons Bracelet Set
This is the perfect accessory for the Disney fan who wants to express their love for their favourite movie without appearing too over-the-top in public. The three individual bracelets can be worn separately but look fab when worn together. Each one features a different coloured and textured band and a high quality metal icon featuring Ariel, Ursula, or King Triton’s trident. They’re super-affordable too! Available from Amazon.com
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Ariel Shirt
Now this shirt’s hot design is really subtle. While literally covered in drawings of Ariel, most people won’t even be able to tell what the design truly is unless they look closer. A great conversation starter. Available from Amazon.com
Pocket Pop! Ursula Key Chain
Funko are famous for their popular Funko Pop! figures, which cover pop culture icons such as characters from Game of Thrones to Marvel Comics’ Doctor Strange and Black Panther, but they also make a variety of smaller mini-figures and cool key chains like this Ursula one here. Perfect for a little splash of Disney fandom for cars, house keys, and pockets everywhere. Available from Amazon.com
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Ursula T-Shirt
Unfortunately due to this t-shirt’s popularity, it’s now sold out on most online stores. Many official Disney products are often made in limited numbers so it’s always important to grab them when they’re available. Search the Disney Store
It would be crazy to make a list of Disney’s The Little Mermaid products without mentioning the official releases of the movie itself.
By far, the best version of the classic animated feature is the Diamond Edition release which contains the film on Blu-ray, DVD, Blu-ray 3D, and comes with a digital version and a copy of the movie soundtrack. This collection is now out of print but it can still be bought online while supplies last. Available on Amazon.com
