Decorative Wall Plates: Mermaids and Pirates

Pirates and Mermaids are the stuff of the nautical fantasies of little kids. Decorative switch plates featuring buccaneers or sea nymphs can add a special touch for a kid's room that's easy to install, and easy to change out when the time comes.

Boys and girls will love the new look that a special kids light switch cover brings to their wall - especially if it has a fanciful pirate or a fabulous mermaid on it!

Have fun browsing this cool selection of decorative switch plates for kids.

And for fun, test your knowledge of Blackbeard, the famous pirate, or enjoy watching a present day "mermaid" and her companion, a "merman," swim through crystal waters.

The Stuff of Childhood Fantasies - Sadly, Real Pirates are Bad and Mermaids Probably Aren't Real

Pirate Mermaid Dartboard

While most adults have more realistic views of such things, children love to fantasize about characters.

Far be it from me to throw darts at their dreams!

They'll too soon grow up to realize that modern pirates are very real and a dangerous menace to modern shipping lanes, and mermaids are yet to be documented by science. A small concession to childhood can go a long way.

Maybe, for your little buccaneer or sea nymph, that concession is as simple as a decorative wall plate. Let them dream while they may.

Mermaids

Sea Nymph Wall Plate - for a DoubleSwitch

There are two mermaids on this one... could it be a mother and daughter pair? No mater. it's a lovely touch for your little mermaid's room!

Mermaid Tails for Real

Custom made mermaid tails have become very popular for cosplay and for all ages, from tweens to adults.

You'll find out how much his creations cost, and hear what inspires his work.

You'll also see some mermaids (and a merman) swimming in in beautiful crystal clear water. Doesn't it make you want to be there?
