The Lite-Brite Classic Toy Will Light Up Your Christmas Morning (Well, If You’ve Got Batteries!)
Basic Fun has released an upgraded version of the classic Lite-Brite with an Ultimate edition. This means it has a larger screen, more colorful pegs, and additional lighting options!
To see if this upgraded toy is worthy of your holiday shopping list, Collin and Stetson unboxed and reviewed the Lite-Brite Ultimate Classic on this Facebook Live.
Here’s what Collin had to say about the new Lite-Brite!
“So not cool Lite-Brite! 🤪 We totally failed on this one because come to find out, this toy doesn’t actually include the batteries. That’s a huge bummer and one reason why toys win so many points with me, so this was a big let down. Also on Christmas morning, who wants to deal with having to find batteries?!
Personally, I think this Lite-Brite also feels very cheap. It’s made out of super light-weight plastic. It’s really true, they just don’t make them like they used to. I like the concept of the Lite-Brite, but this one is a thumbs down for me, and I’d much rather have the classic version.”
• Collin’s overall rating – 4 out of 10
