Our favorite Lite-Brite toy is back — and this time, without the pegs!

The Lite-Brite Touch from Basic Fun! is an upgraded version of one of our favorite games from the ‘90s. The technology makes it so easy to use, and also allows kids to play in more ways than one.

First and foremost, little artists ages 6 and up will enjoy creating masterpieces and works of art with the Lite-Brite Touch. Just like the original, the toy makes images using light. Kids can simply press the buttons to create with different colors. There are 12 guides for inspiration, but kids are encouraged to use their imaginations! They can even save up to five images to show off later.

The Lite-Brite Touch includes three games that kids can play alone or with friends. In Snake mode, move the snake around to eat all of the food without touching the edges. In Brick mode, use a “paddle” and a “ball” to break all of the bricks. Lastly, try to duplicate the image on the screen before time runs out in Mirror mode.

Another fun way kids can entertain themselves is with the five included animation modes. From fireworks and lightning to zig-zags and rainbows, kids can enjoy a mini light show wherever they are.

The Lite-Brite Touch is battery operated, portable, and small enough to fit in a backpack so kids can play games in the car or on the go, as well as at home. Kids have the option to explore their artistic side and spend some quiet time alone, or play games with friends.

The Lite-Brite Touch from Basic Fun! is so easy to use and offers tons of ways to play! Parents and other caretakers will especially enjoy sharing this nostalgic experience with their own kids.


Press the board's color-changing buttons and watch as they light up, then keep pressing to change colors. Create new images using the included instructions or design your own. This version also features games to play.
