When the chance came up to review some Lite Sprites, I have to admit I'd never heard of them. Nevertheless, just one glance at the toys that arrived in the big box and I knew that they would be a huge hit, not just here at The Madhouse, but also on Christmas wish lists across the country. Any little girl who loves fairies and magical lands (and let's face it, are there any that don't ?!) will be blown away by the charming interactive toys in their magical world.
We received a fabulous collection of Lite Sprites toys : the beautiful Tree of Lite playset, Prisma with her Wand and a set of Sprites to join in the fun.
There are five light-filled Lite Sprites in total who inhabit Lite-Topia : Prisma, Astra, Meadow, Brooke and Bleak. Astra, Meadow and Brooke look after the sky, the earth and the water (as their names suggest) and they each have seven colours that they can share with each other and their interactive play sets. Bleak is the naughty fairy who mischievously steals their colours and adds a dash of chaos to Lite-Topia. There's always one !
Prisma is the leading Lite Sprite so she comes with the magical colour wand which has ten colours pre-programmed but can also collect and transfer colours from the real world - something that I found pretty amazing even as a grown-up ! OK, I admit it - I may have carried on playing with the wand for a while after the kids were in bed ! It also has a couple of in built games, Colour Hunt and Colour Mix. It's a great toy for teaching little learners to recognise their colours. (2-year-old Pierre loves playing with the wand and watching the magical colours when his big sisters aren't looking !)
