    I remember having an old toy when I was a kid about 20 years ago or more... I remember playing with it outside when I was on vacation with my family.

    The toy was a Sesame Street flashlight and the plastic casing was yellow. I remember you could switch the color of the light to red, blue or green and so on... A plastic color would go over the lense allowing it to do so. I searched it but all I can find is current versions of it and none that look like they would be 20 years old or sesame street...

    If anyone could help me find or atleast find the name of the toy I would be very grateful thank you.

                Hmm.. I wonder if Playskool put out a limited Sesame Street edition or something. I also had one of those Playskool ones SuperRainCheck posted.

                After searching for about 15 mins here's what I found regarding color changing flashlights..

                The only Sesame Street flashlights I could find were these:

                some mickey mouse one:

                and whatever this mystery one was:


                You sure you didn't just have one of those Playskool ones and you just slapped some Sesame Street stickers all over it? Lol. Just joshin..

                      In the late 1980s, I had a Playskool flashlight that was very similar. It had yellow casing, but was not Sesame Street themed. My flashlight had red and green filters that you could switch between to make colored light.
