    I remember them so you've not dreamt it Finding the exact one might prove tricky, but here's a Colour changing Hello Kitty from the 80's

        I remember them! I'm trying to find a store that sells them. Does anyone know where I can get them from?

          I remember seeing some adverts for these.

          Matchbox also made some toy cars which would change colour after being submerged in warm water. I've still got a couple in my parents attic.

              I had one of these. Was that the name? 'hello colour"? It's been bugging me for years too. I seem to remember that they
              were made of a rather dense material for something that was meant to go in water all the time and took forever to dry out. I quickly lost interest.

                    yeah i had one of those cars, it was a purple Pontiac Firebird, that changed light blue when you put it in hot water, then went back to purple in cold water.

                      I had a Corvette & a Dragster (not sure what it was based one) that were red when cold but would change to orange then yellow in hot water.

                          Hi, the thread have been there for a long time but I am currently looking for this exact toy.

                          For me it was a Unicorn like branded for princess, little girls.

                          Thank you for the pictures you posted i'll keep digging to find it, I will keep you update if I find the unicorn toy.
