Product Description

Product Description

The original light-up picture maker brings you the new Lite Brite Cube with 4 sides of fun! Design pictures that light up on each side of the cube with over 500 pegs, including 30 multi-peg power pegs plus 40 bonus lite loops for 3D designs. Take it anywhere with the carry handle and 2 built-in storage drawers. Includes 8 picture design sheets, 2 free-form sheets and a 25-watt light bulb. Imported. 9-3/4Hx8-3/4Wx8-3/4D".

Amazon.com

Lite Brite offers a whole new dimension to creative play with the latest rendition: the Lite Brite Cube. While the space to create on is a bit smaller, artists now have four pegged panels into which they can poke colors. The cube requires adult assembly, but once that’s done, it’s just like you remember. Choose a design sheet from the eight included--or go freeform with solid black paper--and start plugging colored pegs into their respective spots. Over 500 pegs are included in a rainbow of colors, and the cube has two drawers to store them in. (These drawers fall out quite easily and can cause a mess of spilled pegs, so be careful when transporting.) New to the peg world are Power Pegs--up to four of the same colored peg molded together for quicker completion. The Lite Brite Cube has a blue plastic handle at the top so artwork can be carried around (and shown off) easily. --Pam Lauer

Not like the one we had as kids but still fun creativity!
T. Smith
I have searched for Lite Brite Cube picture refill packs at my neighborhood [stores] and have learned such things don't exist.
Ms. Wendy Thomas
We both get frustrated since the pegs easily fall out; they don't stay put.

I had a Lite-Brite as a kid and loved it, so I was enthused to pick this up for my kids (4 and 6). What a disappointment.

The only thing positive I'll say about it is that the 4-sided configuration, allowing more than one kid to play at once, is actually a very good idea Everything else about this Lite-Brite Cube is absolutely idiotic in terms of design for play value.

- The pegs fall out

- The pattern sheets, held only by pegs, fall off

- The letters on the patterns that tell you what color peg to use are too small to be seen by small kids

- The trays are too shallow and the pegs spill out

- The tray have no covers for storage (in the version I have)

- The frame is made of translucent white plastic that lets too much light through

- The device has no on/off switch, meaning you have to plug/unplug it for play

- The top is held with screws, making the bulb harder to tighten when the kids inevitably jiggle it loose

The thing that really burns me is that every point above could have been rectified very easily with just a little re-engineering. Flange the pegs slightly; angle the faces a few degrees; add clamps for the patterns; ;use a bolder font; use opaque plastic in the case; add a toggle switch to the chord; attach the top with latches instead of screws. A few simple modifications that any thinking person can come up with would make this an exponentially better toy without adding much to the cost of manufacture.

But no. The maker opted for the absolute cheapest properties and you get stuck with something more likely to frustrate than amuse your kids. Drives me bats. Cheaply made, poorly thought out. Doesn't have to be that way.

Don't know about you, but I'd gladly pay upwards of $25 for a toy like this that my kids would actually use. Instead, I paid ten bucks for a useless hunk of plastic. Sound like a bargain?

Refills are available for this toy at Hasbro.com
They have refill pictures available at 12 pages to a pack for $5.99. The refills can be purchased for both types of light brites, the original and the cube.

I, too, purchased the Lite Brite Cube and am rather frustrated at the ignorance of Hasbro in not making refills available. I purchased this toy for my nephew's birthday in February (and I might add that it was his 4th birthday and he seems to understand the concept--I don't believe that 8 is quite an appropriate age) and now he is also awaiting the arrival of some refills. Aside from that fact, I think it is a great toy because it allows the little artists to keep at least 3 of their creations while still working on a 4th. I thought it would be a good idea to give my nephew what I consider to be an updated version of what I had as a child. As far as I understand it, he is enjoying the toy and plays with it often. I would recommend the toy, but only after refills are made available. Next time I will let the people at Hasbro tell my nephew that it is his tough luck that there are no more refills.

I loved this as a kid in the 70's so bought it for my 4&6 year olds. The pros: cube design is great! Kids can work on separate pix simultaneously! Plenty of pegs are included! The cons:Pegs are smaller and can easily fall out of screen during a creation. Only 8 pre-printed pages included (spurring arguments over the butterfly design) Not as sturdy as I remember! Maybe Playskool can work on this! I can tell you that my girls were anxious to start new designs-- instead of turning on the tube and watching cartoons! (2 days in a row!)

My daughter received this for her 5th birthday. She loves it, and in fact her 3 and a half year old sister also enjoys playing with it, although the youngest one needs to be supervised a little more closely. Age 8 seems a little long to wait for this toy. The cube format is certainly well-suited to the younger set, more so than the original lite brite. I think any reasonably dextrous 5+ year old who knows his/her colors and can follow directions fairly well would enjoy this toy.
As for the lack of refills mentioned by others, it's true. However, one can easily get around this with cheap black construction paper cut to fit (inexpensive packs of black only paper are available from craft stores and classroom supply stores on the internet) Children can then create their own design. I've also used colored chalk to draw pictures for my daughter on the paper and she follows the lines with the pegs and enjoys "copying" my picture. I don't see the lack of refills as that big of a deal, although I'd certainly buy some if they were available.
Overall, a great toy.

This lite-Brite is a piece of junk! Don't wast your money! Maybe if I weren't comparing it to the older one I would think it was ok but even then I am not sure. I loved my lite-brite as a kid and wanted to get my daughter one so she could have as much fun as I did with mine.This has not left the box since the first day. First all of the screens where you stick the pegs are white not black like the old one so without the refill sheets it is useless.Also without the refill sheets the pegs are too big and they do not stay in.This was very frustrating! Even with the sheets sometimes they still fall out! I am really unhappy with this purchase and I can usually find something about a toy I like but not this one. I just didn't want anyone to be deceived into thinking that the screens were black and you could make your own "art".
