Barbie and Chelsea Color Reveal
This new Barbies are the perfect Christmas gift for all Barbie and blind bag lovers. Each container holds a doll, but each doll’s look is a secret. The packaging is part of the fun – pull the strip to remove the outer layer and reveal a clear tube. Inside is a mystery Color Reveal doll and four bags hiding surprises inside. Remove them all and fill the tube with warm water, then insert the doll and swirl her around. The water changes colour, and when the doll is pulled out, her features are revealed! Each doll has a different combination of eye colour, the colour of sculpted hair, skin tone and decorated leotard, but the surprises continue; open the bags to discover a long-haired wig that’s scented, a skirt, a pair of shoes and a small sponge. Dip the sponge in ice-cold water and use it to transform the doll’s face and sculpted hair — her eyes, lips and hair change colour — with the use of warm and ice-cold water, kids can repeat this wow moment over and over again! Complete her look with the skirt, shoes and scented wig and play out a story.
