FAQS - What Makes the Magic Bath Poster Change and Other Fun Stuff
The Magic Bath Poster uses Thermochromics which means color changes (Appears & Disappears) by temperature changes.
The black "magic" coating that hides images, and then disappears to reveal them is thermochromic coating and has been thoroughly tested and safety approved.
When the Magic Bath Poster is cold (Below 75 degrees F / 24 C), the black masking color is completely visible with the outline of a "Smiley Face" (giving a hint of something hidden ).
When warmed by being splashed by warm bath or shower water ( above 91 degrees F / 33 C ) the "magic" black color disappears revealing the hidden images. NOTE: The recommended bath temperature for a child is 91.2 degrees F / 33 C).
As the Magic Bath Poster begins to cool below 91 degrees the "magic" black color begins to reappear; at 74 degrees it is completely visible ................. hiding the images once again.

1. Lots of kids take a plastic dish with a few ice cubes with them when they take a bath. When they dunk the Magic Bath Poster (in the warm bath water), it will completely change ............ and everything appears. Then they can write on it with an ice cube and the black instantly comes back.
2. The games and activities on the back of the Poster, make bath time more interesting ( and Parents can "sneak" a bit of education in the bathing process ). Also parents can ask questions and help their kids do the puzzles, games and educational activities, like find missing words, creating stories about the words and characters on the Magic Bath Poster. When in the tub, use only products like Crayola Washable Crayons, Bath Tub Crayons and Erasable Markers may be use out of the tub, etc. - - DO NOT USE PERMANENT MARKERS ON YOUR MAGIC BATH POSTERS!
3. Your kids will want to take their Magic Bath Poster when they travel, and even take it into a restaurant ............ because they use the games on the back; it also makes a great color changing place mat. For instance, when a hot plate or a warm drink, is placed on the Magic Bath Poster, it immediately changes - the black disappears and other things appear.
4. If you heat just a spot and it shows, just dunk the entire Magic Bath Poster in hot water and then put it in the freezer ( or refrigerator ) for about three minutes to cool off; the mark will be gone. Also, you can do the the same thing by making the black completely disappear with warm water and then making the color appear with an ice cube; pretty cool !!

A good hand / eye coordination game is to completely make the black disappear and then hold Your Magic Bath Poster level with both hands; place an ice cube on the top in the center. Now move your Magic Bath Poster to make everything inside the "Smiley Face" change back to black, without dropping the ice or water off your Magic Bath Poster. Time yourself to see how fast you can do it. Everyone, no matter what your age will want to try this one.
