Somewhere over the Rainbow

Posted on January 13, 2010. Filed under: Contest/Giveaway, Review | Tags: |

I can still remember the commercials on Saturday mornings, and now your daughter will too.

Rainbow Brite is making a comeback!  

Thank goodness He-Man is still a thing of the past (for now), but you shouldn’t be surprised that this colorful character is back after 25 years.  Much of 80s fashion has made the rounds in recent years too.

Rainbow Brite was a franchise that generated $1 billion in retail sales of dolls, toys and other licensed products (remember the lunch boxes?) throughout the 1980s. She made her animated debut in a syndicated prime-time special in 1984 and became a regular series. Her background is that she befriends characters named Sprite, Twink, and Starlite, among others, to bring color to Rainbow Land.

The newest Rainbow Brite fashion doll collection will be available in February at Toys R’ Us and Target.  There will also be a free Rainbow Brite interactive website, which features animated videos, a contemporary theme song, coloring pages, wallpapers, games and more.

Rainbow Brite now looks less cartoon-ey and more computer generated, but still has the wimsy from her past. Maybe the smurfs are next?

Leave a comment below about which is your favorite character and five lucky readers could win a Rainbow Brite CD, filled with games and activities! (Winners determined through a sequential drawing via Random.org). Contest ends February 22, 2010!
