Just in time for back-to-school, Frannie received a Quagmire Kids heat-sensitive color-changing ColorFusion shirt to try out…and if you’re looking for a kid-pleasing item to spice up your child’s fall wardrobe, look no further.
We were sent the purple/pink polo for review, which means the shirt is purple, but when activated by body or external heat, it turns pink.
When Frannie first tried it on, she thought it was cute before she even realized that there was a trick to it. As her body warmed (or when her sister planted a hand on her!) the shirt became spotted with pink. That morning she went for her back-to-school haircut and the heat of the hairdryer changed the item’s color completely…no purple to be seen.
After laundering it for the first time, I realized the shirt had gone totally pink, and I freaked out, thinking that perhaps I wasn’t supposed to wash it, but I realized that the heat from the dryer had worked its magic (and by the way, all items are indeed machine washable).
Boys’ and girls’ styles run from size 4 to 14 (I find they fit a bit slim, but you don’t want to go too baggy or you’ll lose some of the effect) and retail for a reasonable $25 – $39.
ColorFusion does come in adult sizes, but I’m pretty sure that’s not for me. People don’t need to know where my hot spots are!
You can purchase ColorFusion from http://www.quagmirekids.com/, http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/, or from The Bay (Queen St., Toronto.)
