This time Barbie is back with a new pet pal and she's waiting for you to colour her in. Colour me cute Barbie (£23.99) comes complete with a vanity stand, basin and puppy ready for you splash water over them revealing some wonderfully bright and vibrantly fun colours.
Both Barbie herself and her adorably cute little furry friend can both be transformed simply by covering them in warm water.
The transformation is almost instant and what we discovered is that the hotter the water, the faster the change. Took a couple of attempts as the first time the water wasn't cold enough and we got a bit fed up of waiting.
Barbie's white top becomes a stylish tie dye tshirt and her puppy goes from being colourful to a bright white.
To change the colours back you can either wait for them to dry or splash cold water over them if you don't have the time to wait.
Something so simple yet absolutely brilliant. To the kids it was magical, just how did it happen??
What is great is how long the game play lasted. It started in the lounge and continued way into bath time. They even merged play with their Chelsea flipping pup pool play set.
Barbie and her pet friend can be played with separately or together and they can be played with or without the water.
Great for imaginations and even for motor skills, using Barbie's tiny sponge to paint the water on, it is another toy that I cannot fault. I just wish you could buy more colour changing clothes to extend the game play even further.
