When I was about 6 years old, I was a crafty kid to say the least. I would buzz right through bead kits, create destruction with Crayola crayons and mark my territory with a trail of marker ink. Don’t even get me started on what I did to poor Barbie’s clothes! (Tape and paper were my friends back then).
So when I saw this same commercial for Lite Brite, I dropped EVERYTHING. And while I cannot remember exactly what I said, my thoughts surely sounded like this:
ART THAT LIGHTS UP? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? MERRY-GO ROUND PONIES AND A BLUE MICKEY MOUSE? I CAN EVEN MAKE A BIRTHDAY SIGN! WAIT, MY BIRTHDAY’S COMING UP, IWANT THISIWANTTHISIWANTTHISIWANTTHISIWANTTHIS…
…I must have – literally – dropped everything because my parents refused to get me Lite Brite because of all the tiny coloured pegs. I was crafty, but clearly not crafty enough to convince them otherwise.
