Thanks to a question on Cash Cab this evening, Noel and I amused our children briefly with a duet version of the Lite-Brite theme song: "Lite Brite! Makin' things with liiiiight ... What a sight, makin' things with Lite Brite!"
Lite Brite is one of those Generation X toys that people my age remember fondly. Some of them I never owned, but I can't deny that we owned a Lite Brite. I dutifully made all the the designs that came with it -- you may recall that they were printed on black paper which you inserted behind the pegboard, and when you put the peg in you actually punctured the paper.
You also got blank sheets of black paper on which you could make your own designs. I remember making title cards for the puppet shows that my brother and I put on for the family. And if I'm not mistaken, we managed to hold onto our Lite Brite long enough to lose some significant number of the colored pegs that came with it, necessitating the buying of a replacement pack.
Do you have any Lite Brite memories? Original Lite Brite or later-generation variants are both acceptable.
