Q: Can you please provide a link to print the templates from online? When I go to the basic fun website, the download tab is not clickable.

  • A: Hello, you can visit https://basicfun.com/litebrite/index.html to find the downloads!

Q: Has anyone noticed that the corners of the light brite board do not have lights. Ours barely illuminates the corners and upon inspection there are no LED lights in the top left and bottom right corner.

submitted by DblA - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi there, thank you for your inquiry into the latest Lite Brite! Lite Brite, following modern toy & safety tests and regulations, was built using 6 LED lights that are located underneath the face of the tablet. They are strategically positioned to help light up the entire board no matter where the pegs are located. The pegs nearest to the LED lights will tend to shine a bit brighter while the pegs with the farthest length from the lights, will tend to be not as bright but all pegs will glow against these 6 LED Lights. The pegs were even re-built this year with a glossier texture to help shine brighter and be more colorful! Lite Brite has 4 different light displays activated by pushing the button on the back. If you have any inquiries on this, please email us at www.basicfun.com/support - we are here to help you and create the best Lite Brite experience that you can have. Enjoy creating art with light! Thank you! - Your Friends at Basic Fun

  • A: Just bought this for my grandson. So excited to give it to him. I wish I hadn’t wasted my money. Doesn’t really illuminate hardly at all. The one I had as a kid was much better.

Q: Where are the templates?

submitted by Tia888888888 - 7 years ago
  • A: There should be 2 included, and the directions lead you to a website ("the bridge direct") where you can download and print more, but it's unclear how you would get them scaled just right.

    submitted bycarmen - 7 years ago
  • A: I cant find them either. Unless they were taped inside the box and we didn't see them, they are now in the trash. Very frustrating

    submitted byErin - 7 years ago

Q: Why is it that only a few pegs light up at the top row of the device? Also, it doesn't seem like all areas light up. Is my device defective?

Q: Hi Do these pegs go with the old original lite bright ?

submitted by magdy khalil - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi there, no these pegs are not compatible with the original Lite Brite. Lite Brite has been manufactured by different companies over the years - every company that produces an item has it's own scale that they use. The pegs and templates compatibility (if they are compatible with several different units) would be only with in that companies portfolio. Basic Fun has been making Lite Brite since 2016 - we have several different template styles NOW (as of recently only - this year) that have pegs that will work in several different units. But none of our pegs will work in a non Basic Fun produced unit. Hope this helps you - but if you have any further questions - please contact us directly on our Basic Fun website (www.basicfun.com). - Your Friends at Basic Fun (Basic Fun licenses Lite Brite from Hasbro)

Disapointing if you grew up on the old versions but still exciting for the new kids

Andersonfam - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I like that you no longer need a paper to make it functional like the old versions. However, the lighting effect is not even. According to the manufacturer it seems like this is to maintain compliance with toy laws but it still a let down. The stand is very clearly only to display the work since it’s extremely top heavy. Our kid still likes it, but we miss the old version.

Just save your money. It lights up in 3 or 4 spots and is just a big waste of time for my kids. Maybe I’ll cut it open and add better and more leds. I swear there are only like 6 leds total.

BB - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
I knew this wasn’t the lite Brite of the past but was still hoping for the same magic. Sadly, ours lit up in just 2 small areas. The whole thing doesn’t lite up! What a disappointment when you’ve spent that time putting in all the pegs. Plus, we did NOT get the full 214 pegs. Couldn’t even fill in the entire page and had to leave some colors blank. Sad. This could still be such a great toy, but don’t expect great quality!! Will return if the company doesn’t offer a replacement. I’m waiting on a response.

This toy brings back so many memories! It runs off 3 AA batteries making it portable. There’s a little stand at the back to stand it up, or you can fold it in and lay it down to work on it. My son is 2 years old and loves to play with it, plus it’s great for his hand eye coordination.

Kind of like the classic, from the front view, but that’s it. This thing is complete junk. If you can get the battery compartment cover off, you’ll be lucky. We tried multiple methods. It will not unscrew. I couldn’t even pull it out with pliers. After you get the batteries in, you’ll notice uneven light distribution. On the flip side, you get what you pay for.

purchased this toy for my 6 year old..thought it was a nostalgic memory but i guess i didn’t realize the papers don’t slip through the top and can’t be used again..you have to poke the pegs through the paper based on color but can’t be reused once you do that. also, my daughter did one paper and lost interest in doing anymore then that..now it just sits on her dresser and occasionally will use it as a “nightlight” although the light only stays on for 5 minutes then turns off automatically. atleast this was a cheap toy and not expensive but just wasn’t for us..

So fun! We like that it’s simple to lay down the paper and punch the colored rods through it, wish there were a few more papers- I’d pay more! So so cute though, and it’s keeps my kiddos busy, and helps with hand eye coordination and dexterity too.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I remember spending hours creating with the lite brite as a kid. My kids enjoy doing the same thing. They love being able to create images that are in their minds and even try to mimic other pictures they see. Great interactive toy
