Toy Commercial Tuesday: Hot Wheels Color Changers

As I wrote over on PopPoppa, we got our daughter a basic orange Hot Wheels track for her birthday. You know, the kind with a clamp and a ramp? When my folks came out recently, they brought the box of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars I had as a kid out with them. After I saw that she was actually interested in playing with it, I broke out the other cars and she’s been enjoying it ever since.

While going through the box of cars I was reminded of that great, late 80s/early 90s trend of making everything change colors. It spread to Hot Wheels and their aptly named Color Changers line which you can see in the commercial above. I was a huge fan of these and showed them off to the kiddo which kind of blew her mind. Unfortunately, only a few of them still change. It kinda makes me want to dig through some boxes and see if my Hypercolor sweatshirt is still around. (I can’t find a picture of it on the internets, but it had a guy wearing a sport coat and hat that would change into shorts and a tank top.)
