Zuma is a pink, sparkly dolphin! She shows me around Oceana and helps out with my underwater adventures!

Zuma is a character in Barbie in A Mermaid Tale and Barbie in A Mermaid Tale 2. She is a dolphin that assists Princess Merliah in rescuing her mother, the queen of Oceana. She is voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.

Physical Appearance

Zuma is a sparkly, pink dolphin with blue eyes. She is almost the same size as Merliah.


She took action when Queen Calissa was overthrown by Eris, as she waited for years until Merliah had come of age so she could ask her to help rescue her mother. This shows Zuma's loyalty, and Zuma also showed Merliah around Oceana, showing her helpfulness also. Zuma is very sweet and friendly, because she happily talked to Hadley.
