I also went to an honor band once and we got shirts with the festival logo on it. The shirts were PLAIN black and white......
......until you got in the sun.

Well, I have a few Barbies that have color change fun-ness! I have a couple of Halloween dolls that have glow in the dark dresses but I don't think my camera would capture that.
Let's look at them and how they change shall we?
One of my first Barbies. This is Wet n' Wild Teresa. I played and played with this Barbie. My friend and I thought we were so awesome because we both had Barbie dolls named after us! (Her name was Kira.) And this Teresa has the beautiful Steffie head mold.
I never ever put this doll in water. I put her suit in water a number of times. But today I will leave it on but never get the hair wet. The hair is so pretty I couldn't bear to put it in water!
Next we have Dance Magic Barbie. I love her little ballet slippers. She has lipstick that changes color!
Now we have Merliah the mermaid. I think her hair, tattoos and toe nails all change color.
Here is Bedtime Barbie. She closes her eyes.
The next three dolls I got last week at the thrift store. First is Ocean Friends Barbie and then Splash and Color Barbie. Both have color changing elements. The third is a Sleeping Beauty doll. She is like Bedtime Barbie and she closes her eyes.
|Splash and Color is the third from the left.|
If you'll remember last summer, I got Splash and Color Kira. My mom bought her for me at a yard sale. I was anxious to see if her hair still had the color change effect. Yep! Purple and blue to pink and white. Pretty! So today she will not be in the mix.
Now here they all are eagerly awaiting their turn at the sink.
First up is Ocean Friends Barbie. Her black wetsuit legs change under icy water! No? Doesn't seem to be working very well does it?
There, that's better. WARM water does the trick!
But almost as fast as it disappeared, it started to come back. Maybe she's a bathtime toy so the warm bath will keep her wetsuit away.
Let's do Dance Magic Barbie next. She has pretty "Barbie" pink lipstick.
She comes with a human-sized lipstick case that has a washcloth tip. I soaked it in warm water and watched her lips change from Barbie Pink to Pale Pink. Awesome! (I actually like the Pale Pink better!)
I then used the same lipstick on Bedtime Barbie and watched her little eyes shut. So cute.
Sleeping Beauty also went to sleep.
Splash and Color Barbie's hair is not as dramatic as Kira's. Barbie's hair is pink and orange and the warm water changes it to yellow and light pink. Meh.
Teresa is an icy water girl. And from what I've experienced both today and in the past, when it says icy water, they really mean icy water. Here the cold water worked but then I ran an ice cube over her and got the color to change just a smidge more.
Swimsuit goes from light blue and yellow to dark blue and green! I always loved changing this as a kid.
Last but not least is Merliah. I took off her bottoms so we can see her tattoos more clear. And icy water brings out another set of purple tattoos behind the permanent pink ones. Fun!
But her hair did not change color. But watch when I run it under warm water.
It goes away! I also ran her tattoos under warm water and they went away too. So with Merliah, her pink streaks are supposed to appear with icy water. Apparently the ambient air in the house is just cool enough that her pink stays present. I did not see any noticeable change with her toenail color. Just a tad bit of pink but not enough to really even notice!
An ice cube awakened Bedtime Barbie and Sleeping Beauty.
And changed Dance Magic Barbies lips back to Barbie pink as the first picture shows.
Do you have any color change dolls that I don't have here? They are so much fun aren't they?
Until next time!
