The ’70s and ’80s were a great time to grow up. We had all of the coolest movies and toys. The Lite Brite was just one of them. The idea was that you would punch plastic pegs through a dark background with lights behind it. The result was some vibrant early pixel art. Well, Lite Brite now has a big brother. A giant of a brother actually.
This is LiteZilla, which is a giant wall-sized interpretation of the classic kids’ toy that you can hang on the wall. The good news is that this really exists, the bad news is that a 5-foot wide by 4-foot-high LightZilla costs $10,000. What kid has that kind of money? Oh yeah, rich brats. I hate those kids. They get all of the cool toys.
There’s also an eight-foot-wide version for $15,500, so that these kids can go even bigger and spend more of their allowance. If I were them I would have my butler place the pegs in while I sit back and yell at him. Then I would have the other servants judge and make fun of his art. It’s what you do when you’re a rich kid.
Too bad I’ll never play with this unless I find it by the curb outside of some bored kid’s mansion. If you’re a rich kid, you can order yours today from Hammacher Schlemmer, or request a custom quote directly from Litezilla.
