EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Barbie dolls now come in all shapes and sizes and colors, allowing kids to pick the look of the doll. But with the Barbie Color Reveal doll, what the doll looks like is a surprise. Everything from the color of her hair and eyes to her fashion accessories remain a mystery inside the blind-packaged canister. Use water to reveal your doll's looks. There are five dolls to collect in series 1.

Start by peeling away the outer covering of the canister. What you'll find is a see-through container with blind bags and an all-pink doll inside. Remove the doll and the four blind bags, and then take the canister and fill it with warm water to the fill line. From there, place the doll into the water-filled canister and watch as the outer covering disappears. When the water has turned all cloudy and pink, it's time to take out your doll and reveal which one you got. Then, open up the blind bags to get your doll dressed. You'll find shoes, a skirt, a wig, and a heart-shaped sponge. The sponge helps you do water-activated color reveal features with the doll's eyes and hair. Dipping the sponge in icy cold water will add colorful streaks to the doll's plastic hair, as well as change the doll's eye color and add makeup. You can change it back with warm water.

Is It Fun?

This creates an unboxing experience for Barbie, but it's more than opening blind bags. Kids will like all the water-activated color-change features that reveal their doll and change up the doll's look. Barbie fans will definitely want to collect and reveal all five dolls.

Who It’s For

The Barbie Color Reveal doll is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of
