On my gosh- I forgot about this.. I still have my lightbright in the box with all those little pieces and the paper.. I use to get in trouble all the time, my mom would vaccume up the little parts and make a horrible sound in the vaccume. I think I will have to give it another try...

I remember being about 7 years old or so and the light bulb burned out in my light bright. So my grandad took the old bulb out and went to get a new one. But he left the light bright plugged in. Me being a curious 7 year old put my finger in the socket and WOW that hurt!!!! It felt like something was grinding my finger! What a shocking experience with the good old light bright.

I remember once I put a bunch of these up all over my town and the police freaked out because they thought it was a terrorist threat.

Man, who did not have one of these back then. I thought it was one of the best things going; I just loved seeing the picture light up in the dark.

So good! They still make them but they're so not as cool, now theyre smaller and thinner.. we had the big chunky ones! I still have mine with lots of pegs and designs, I take it out every now and again :)

OMG! I remember these. LiteBrite was one of my favorite toys, up until my mom vacumed up all the little pieces. The worst thing about it was that because it was a metal case... I got my hand burned a few times picking it up to show my mom.

I remember how around the edges, the holes would be malformed and you couldn't get the little pegs in. It would drive me nuts!

I am a college professor and I keep one of these in my office. I always get comments from my students about it. It still works. I am not even sure if the bulb has ever been changed.

I remember after about 30 minutes of playing with this, a burning smell would start the emanate from behind the paper.

I got one of these at a tag sale as a kid. The most fun was drawing your own back round, and being able to impress your family with light-up art work. ;)

I think as a child I thought this was one of the best toys ever. When I ran out of the black paper images, I used to create my own on pieces of paper and then plug in the pegs. Didn't always turn out great but still had fun. Would love to have one of these again for my kids.

One of my uncles bought me my first lite bright. I loved to turn off the light when I was done and seeing it all lit up. I remember the templates it came with.

I had one of these when I was a kid. I remember in when I was 13 watching a 7 year old boy use the pegs to write the "f" word on the Lite Brite he was using. Guess he loved getting attention!

This was the big toy in preschool that everyone lined up to play. I was so happy when I got one. If they have them I will buy one.

I still remember the feeling of punching the little plastic pegs through the paper. It sure was fun.....I don't know what ever became of mine. I don't even remember ever getting rid of it.

I had one that was kind of odd coloured. The front was yellow and the rest of the unit was turquoise. Not sure what year this was from but I loved playing with it.

omg! i remember this back in 1987, i was 5, me and my then 2 year old kid sister played this!

My friends all had these and I wanted one but my mom was nervous that it might be a fire hazard so needless to say I never got one.

I asked santa for one and got the refill. Years later my mom and I still joke about it. Santa thought the whole thing was in the refill package.I bought the newer cube version for my kids and it was a piece of crap. It wasn't angled like the older one and more diffucult to push the pegs in. So I picked up a older one at a church sale and it's been great.

OMG Lite Brite! I never had ones of these but one of my friends did, and I always wanted to play with it! I wanted one so bad (still do!) :-)

I have a working light-bright in original box marked 1985. I also have pegs and unused stencils if anyone is interested. I have been using it As a lamp with a sketch of the kool-aid guy in pegs. Contact me at

before i forget, they sell a new kind that's battery operated at any toys r us or walmart. Not as much fun without the electricity but still awesome. My 4yo didn't last long with the pieces. I need to find refills.

We would spend countless hours setting in the dark sticking the little pegs in the little holes, faces all aglow. I remember you could order more patterns for a few points or something...
Sarah - June 05, 2011 - Report this comment
OMG I remember this! My thumb used to ache after pushing all the little pegs in! They all ended up in the hoover too. Does anyone remember the funny burning smell that came off it if you left it on fot a while? lol

I remember seeing the commercial for this when I was younger and just had-to-have-it that Christmas. The awe I experienced when I got it.. ooh it was such joy. Think I'm gonna cry. lol

I still have this toy a long time ago when I was a little kid. But now I'm old enough to play with it because I'm 28 years old. But it is packed away along with the rest of my stuff in a box before moving to Santa Fe.
