I love the father’s expression in this. How many times have I seen it on my own Daddy’s face when my mother made him do things he did not want!
So, the comments here make me wonder if I was the only child in the world who wasn’t slutting up her Barbies’ life. Maybe this is why I could never understand how mermaids have sex. If only my infant brain had been accustomed to the idea of genitalia-less dolls having sex, maybe it could make the leap to fish-tail sex.
And that, by the way, is the logical reason why fishy-type people frequently gain the use of legs on dry land in all the stories.
