Hasbro had a bright idea back in 1967 when they introduced Light Bright. Light Bright allows kids to create glowing multi-coloured pictures using pegs placed into a black screen and then lit from behind.
Pre-made patterns assist the process or kids can develop their own designs. The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes the Asics shoe company as holding the world record for the largest light bright display. In 2008, the Asic's shoe design used 300,000 pegs on a canvas measuring 11 feet by 15 feet.
More recently, Light Bright has undergone a significant redesign. The New Light Bright comes in different models and features a sleeker screen and a choice of colours. Check out this product review for the Lite Brite Magic Screen:
It seems Light Bright has earned its place among the world's most timeless toys on top of the wish list.
