Magical Fun Day or Night with Playbrites!

Light up fun with Playbrites!



Playbrites are available in six different popular animal varieties. Each come with accessories such as a nose, mouth, ears etc…Think a cooler and light up version of Mr. Potato Head! The accessories easily store inside the animal so everything stays together and your child doesn’t lose any pieces (or Mom doesn’t step on any of the pieces!).  The top of the animal comes off so your child can light up their room or play tent with cool color features! Plus, it comes with a carry handle for easy transport to a friends house, grandma’s house, room to room… possibilities are endless! Retail price on is $19.99 each. They do take 3 AA batteries which are not included.

My review:

Let me start out by saying, these are so much fun! My 9 year old daughter and 6 year old son are having a blast with them. At first, when I looked them up quickly, I thought they were to only be used at bedtime. How cool is it to have a light up toy to use at bedtime, but to also play with during the day?! My daughter was thrilled to receive the Unicorn since she is very much obsessed with them at the moment. My son loves dinosaurs, so he was excited to receive the Dino Dragon. After assembly which was super easy, the kids got right to creating their animal with the included parts. They really are adorable! I love how you can mix and match if you have more than one Playbrite. They are available in 6 different animal varieties: Unicorn, Dino Dragon, Bunny, Shark,  Kitty and Puppy.


Just press down on the unit to go through the many bright colors (red, blue, green, pink, orange and white). Turn your child’s room or tent into a magical light show! It was so fun seeing my children’s faces light up with the colors and designs on the wall and ceiling. They come with long lasting LED lights, so I am glad I won’t have to change the batteries every day so my kids can enjoy this. It also automatically shuts off, so you don’t have to worry if your child has left it on when you go out, or when they fall asleep.



In conclusion: I think Playbrites are wonderful for all children. I love how you can play with them during the day, and then have a magical light show at night. They are perfect for children who are afraid of the dark and parents do not need to worry because they have an automatic shut off. These would make the perfect gift for a birthday party and even for the upcoming Easter holiday.


You can purchase Playbrites at:, and in Toys R Us stores.
