Rainbow Brite Review and Giveaway CLOSED


 Rainbow Brite is back!!!

Rainbow Brite is the next of the mid 80's toys to get a makeover and make a comeback.  

History of Rainbow Brite

Hallmark first introduced the Rainbow Brite brand about 25 years ago.  Originally named Wisp, Rainbow Brite made her animated debut in 1984 on a prime-time special, "Peril in the Pits,".  She, along with her white sprite Twink and flying horse Starlite, got their own show in April of 1986.   While the show only lasted one season, the Rainbow Brite dolls were loved by girls all over the world for many years.  Rainbow Brite dolls were originally made by Mattel from 1984 - 1986.  


Up up & Away attempted a relaunch in 1996 complete with an updated look (removing her trademark star) and all new "Friends".  

In 2003 Rainbow Brite was re-released by HotTopic as a 20th Anniversary doll.  The 20th Anniversary doll was replicated nearly exactly like the 1983 Mattel dolls. 



Return of an Icon:

Being revamped for her 25th Anniversary, her look has been updated.  She is taller and thinner (and looks darn good for her age) but her star has returned.  She is joined in Rainbow Land by her two friends Moonglow and Tickled Pink, and their companion horse friends Starlite, Shimmer and Sunriser. 

You can visit Rainbow Brite online at www.RainbowBrite.Com to view four new Rainbow Brite animated episodes. The animated episode Return to Rainbow Land explains Rainbow Brite's long absence from Rainbow Land.

Rainbow Brite fashion dolls are currently available at Target and are scheduled to be released at Toys R' Us later this month.

I was recently sent a set of Rainbow Brite activity CD's.  Each CD contains games, puzzles, coloring pages and a mini story about Rainbow Brite.

WIN IT!!!

My favorite toy was a little white dog that had a leash and a button you pressed to walk it. Unfortunately, it didn't last very long. It stopped working soon after I got it. :P

Actually, I loved rainbow bright as a kid! I could sing you the theme song. It would be cool to give my daughter rainbow bright so she could cherish this character too.

My favorite toys growing up include: My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Popples, Teddy Rupskin (spelling?), and of course Rainbow Brite! It is funny, because now many of these toys are being re-released for my children to enjoy. Thank you for the chance!
