30 Day Photo Fun! Day 13 Reminds You of Childhood

When I saw today’s challenge I knew exactly what I was going to take a picture of.



Yes folks, this is MY original Lite-Brite, in it’s original box and I’m pretty sure it even has the original light bulb in it. I was 8 when my parents bought me this for Christmas. I played with this ALL the time.


Believe it or not there were even some unused papers in there so I could write this Happy Birthday sign to my son who is turning 9 today. So it worked out perfect!

I took this picture in the closet so you could see it better!


I loved my Lite-Brite!

And for your viewing pleasure. The original commercial. Boy did THIS bring back the memories. Enjoy!


What thing brings a childhood memory to your mind?
