Mermaid measures about 26 cm from head to fin.

During typhoon season my son would often get scared, the winds and rain were so strong they would shake the buildings. We have seen uprooted trees and seen destruction from many typhoons.
I told a story about how the merpeople who live in the waters of Hong Kong will fight the evil typhoon monster away. Since then, he hasn’t been scared much and has found comfort in the story.
