Lite Sprites – Review

Lite Sprites from WowWee are an innovative range of toys for girls that change colour as if by magic.

Coming from the land of Lite-Topia, the Lite Sprites use the lights and different colours to express their moods and feelings.

There are 4 sprites which make up the group of colourful fairy friends, Prisma, Astra, Meadow and Brooke. Bleak is the bad girl of the bunch, who uses her powers to suck away colour from Lite-Topia.

We’ve had lots of fun here at the Toybuzz Household with the Lite-Sprites toys we were sent.

We started off with the Prisma figure who comes with her own Lite Wand. This is probably the first thing you’ll want to get, if your planning on starting a Lite Sprites collection. The Lite-Wand really is the star of the show, and only available in the pack with Prisma.

Prisma comes sitting on her pod, which can be attached onto the Tree of Life Lite-Sprites Playset. The Tree Of Life is the focal point of Lite-Topia, and can have up to 4 Pod’s attached at a time. All the Sprites come with a pod included.

The main point of the Lite-Wand is that you can magically catch colours and pass them onto your Sprites, amazing your friends and family in the process. Jacob and Thomas were certainly amazed the first time I showed them the wand!

You can collect colours using the colour wheel which comes with Prisma and the Lite-Wand, or amazingly you can just press it down on any colour around you and the wand will recognise it and collect the colour. You can then feel like a real wizard casting spells, when you press your wand towards your Lite-Sprites and watch as they change to that colour.

As well as just changing your Sprites colour – which face it is pretty cool as it is. You can also play games with the Lite-Wand like Color Match. In this game the wand will flash a colour and you have to find something to match that colour (either with the colour wheel, or something else around the house) and press the wand down to catch that colour.  There is also another game called Color Mix where two colours and lit and you have to find the colour that will be made when you blend those two together.

Another aspect of the wand is spell casting with Bleak spells. Bleak remember is the naughty Lite-Sprite who wants to steal everyone else’s colours. I have to be honest I read the instructions for the spells, but didn’t really understand what I had to do or what it was about. I’m not sure if that was because I didn’t have the Bleak figure. Maybe if I had Bleak when I was casting spells something would have happened differently.

The Tree of Life which I previously mentioned is one of 5 Lite-Sprite playsets that are available. Theres the Swing, Windmill, Waterfall, Flower, and the main attraction the Tree of Life. All the playsets can be connected together easily, with the Tree of Life taking centre stage, and all the others branching off it.

The Playsets are a place for your Lite-Sprites to go and play. They all have music and lights, and although not necessarily needed, they all add something to the magic of the Lite-Sprites.

The Lite-Sprites are going to be a big hit with the girls this Christmas. In my opinion it’s definitely  a good choice for an Xmas gift. I’m obviously not in the target age-range for this…not by a long shot, but I can just imagine getting my hands on this when I was a little girl and absolutely loving it. The way you can change the colours with a flick of the wand is truly magically, and you really do feel like a fairy princess or wizard.

A big thumbs up from Toybuzz for the Lite-Sprites!
