Lite Brite

Lite-Brite was an electric toy introduced in 1967 by Hasbro that allows lighted pictures to be created. The picture was created by placing multi-colored translucent plastic pegs through opaque black paper. The light from the illuminated light bulb was blocked by the black paper except though where the pegs conduct the light.

  1. I had one of these as a kid in the 70's! Much to my Mom's annoyance, I kept losing the colored pegs in our living room's shag carpeting.
