Lite Sprites. This is one of those toys that I just don’t get, but my daughters love. Made by WowWee, Lite Sprites is a collection of mini dolls that cast and catch color and light to express their emotions.
Five Lite Sprites make up the Sprite Sisterhood, and each one has her own special role to play in their world, Lite-Topia:
• Prisma leads the Sprite Sisterhood and loves all colorful light.
• Meadow makes the plants and flowers bright and is a bit of a prankster.
• Brooke is the adventurous Sprite who colors the waters.
• Astra is a starry-eyed dreamer who helps the skies shine day and night.
• Bleak is a mischievous Sprite who thinks it’s fun to zap color from Lite-Topia.
You’ll want to start your Lite Sprites collection with the Lite Wand and Prisma pack. It comes with the Lite Sprite named Prisma, a Lite Wand, and a pod for Prisma to sit on. The Lite Wand is what you need to capture light. You can capture color from any flat surface and then “share” it with the Sprites. It took Maya a few tries to understand how to use the wand. Maura just got a kick out of watching her change the colors!
It’s hard to tell what these dolls do unless you see them in action:
If I were to buy Lite Sprites for my girls (which is a big maybe at this point!) I’d definitely opt for The Tree of Lite as well, to add to the play value. The canopy of the tree catches color, and I’m sure it would look really pretty in Maya’s bedroom. Four Sprites can hang from this canopy, so that would be a nice way to store them as well.
Lite Sprites and The Tree of Lite are best suited for girls ages 4 and up. Be aware that The Tree of Lite does not come with any figures; you’ll have to buy those separately! You can find the collection online at the WowWee Toyshop and Amazon.com, and in-store at toy retailers nationwide. For more information, please visit litesprites.com.
