If they are considered safe for children who often bite and chew on toys then my guess is it would be safe for the aquarium as well.

Found these on eBay and says minor paint wear, either these are painted or baked. Will these be okay?

The Petsmart near me has many Disney characters in their stock of aquarium decor.

Actually both EBay and Amazon have a 5 or 6 packs of Little Mermaid aquarium decorations for $20 - $30
