The Color Magic Barbie has the same face and body as the American Girl.  She has bendable legs.

Some Color Magic Barbie are considered "high color" with very vivid makeup.  These are generally more valuable.

The color changing solution altered both the hair and swimsuit colors.

The Midnight Color Magic has been found NRFB (Never Removed From Box) with hair changed to Midnight Ruby on its own.

The plastic box converts into a closet.

This is one of the hardest to find, and therefore most expensive vintage Barbie dolls.

In 1966 there was a Color Magic Designer Set and a Color Magic Fashion Fun set.  In 1967 five more Color Magic ensembles were released.

Mattel issued a Color Magic Barbie Reproduction in 2004.
