Cool! That's the best word I could find to describe this product.

It's a "real" color-changing card. Just like the description says: hold it in your hand and it changes from black to red; then wave it in the air and it changes back.

Some folks might even think the trick didn’t work all the way. With all of this said, this is a fun quickie for a performer with repeat audiences that is looking for a novelty card change.
