It arrived! And the first Lite Brite design!

So who remembers Lite Brite? Possibly the greatest toy ever invented. Kids these days are too stupid to play with Lite Brite. First of all they'd all choke on the pegs. And secondly they lack the creativity. Ever notice how much old toys require artistic creativity and imagination? It never ceases to amaze me.

Anyway, so the original 1978 Lite Brite I bought off of eBay finally arrived today, and I could not be more happy. I tore the box open immediately and started peggin' away!

Here's the first design I made. Just a little somethin' somethin'

I shall call it... The Ethereal Wave.

Now time to disassemble and get crackin' on a new one!

I'm going to try and make a lot of video game themed ones. Especially classic games, as I feel those will transalte easiest to the lite brite medium.
I already have a bunch of ideas in mind. If you have an idea for a good lite brite design feel free to leave it in the comments!
