My lite bright! I remember playing with it, using the paper with the colors planned out and then making my own designs. When I wasn’t playing with the light box, the little pegs became jewels for a treasure hunt. This must have been late 70s very early 80’s. I was 6 or 7 I think. It was a holiday gift and I loved the lite bright.
I love color and painting and computers. Backlit screens bring an image to life today in some of my artwork. I still try to find ways to light up my paintings with color and light. I don’t often think about that toy, but oddly it was the first one that came to mind after reading the article. I do think about the other experiments I did with the pegs or colored paper or coloring books to try communicate the pictures I could imagine in my mind. I have kids of my own now and I watch them and their modes of communicating. I often wonder what will become meaningful to them. What they will remember when asked to think of a childhood object that was important?
