WowWee, an award-winning manufacturer of toys, is releasing Lite Sprites™, a new toy brand for girls that is “equal parts magical, interactive, and empowering.” Lite Sprites give kids the power and ability to magically collect and share color and light in the unique play world of Lite-Topia. Lite Sprites is launching with one Lite Wand, five Lite Sprites™ (each with her own Forest Pod), four deluxe playsets (Waterfall, Windmill, Flower and Swing), the Tree of Lite Playset, and 21 collectible Lite Pets.
The Lite Sprites™ live in Lite-Topia, an enchanted land that sparkles with color and light. The Sprites collect, share and use color and light to express their emotions. The Sprite Sisterhood includes five Sprites, each with a special power: Prisma, the leader; Astra, the keeper of the skies; Brooke, who takes care of the water; Meadow, who is responsible for the plants, flowers and trees; and Bleak, the rebel Sprite who uses her powers to disrupt color in Lite-Topia.
When the Lite Sprites box arrived, I didn’t tell my kids what was inside because I wanted it to be a surprise. My daughter, who is 6, opened the package and pulled out the Lite Sprite box and immediately my 4 year old son announced loudly, “I’ve been wanting those!” He is every bit as excited about the Lite Sprites as she is! They really like the wonderland and how all the pieces connect. My son loves the sprites’ pets- a cute little firefly and caterpillar. My daughter loves the Lite Sprites themselves and she loves changing the colors and incorporating the color changes into her story lines as she acts out pretend games- “Orange is the stay away color,” she tells her brother as he brings his castle soldiers over to check out the super cool Tree of Life.
LITE SPRITES™ TREE OF LITE
This is really the star of the show! My daughter and son love it and it is a great central piece of the wonderland that is created by adding on different playsets. This multi-level forest hideaway comes alive with color and includes interactive sounds, light-up staircase, working elevator and spinning, sparkling treetop.
