What makes the Hot Wheels Color Shifters fun?

As a child I already had a car that could change color. You had toys for girls with dolls and the like who could do that under hot and cold water, and for boys you had the cars.

I therefore had to include these Hot Wheels in the list of the best toy cars.

The downside is that you don't know in advance which one you're getting so if you're really looking for a specific type of car these aren't for you, and I got this race car when I ordered one.

Although the reviews on Amazon are somewhat variable, many customers still like them.

Someone indicated that it doesn't work no matter what he tried, but most people can still get some fun out of it:

Exactly as advertised. I ordered three cars and luckily they were all different (thank you !!!) The kids take them to the bath with a cup of ice and enjoy the color changes.

It is indeed difficult to get the color changing effect.

Warm must be really very warm and cold very cold, otherwise it won't work. But for example in a warm bath is fine and then with a glass of ice water next to it.

There are not many cars that can take a bath, so that is a welcome addition.

Hot Wheels are on the cheaper side of diecast cars and are really meant to be toys, not model cars.

This is also the case with the Color Shifters set. They are real Hot Wheels, but with an extra function.

Conclusion

It's nice for a while, but then you realize you don't really have many situations where you can use it.

With us he just ended up in the bin with the other cars, but still enjoyed it.
