Little Sprites from WowWee
Lite Sprites are five fairies – Prisma, Astra, Meadow, Brooke and Bleak – who live in the world of Lite-Topia and express their feelings through colour and light. My seven year old daughter, Lauren, was lucky enough to review Prisma and her Lite Wand (RRP £29.99).
Prisma lights up and changes colour when the lite wand is pointed at her using colours selected from the light wheel provided. You can also "capture" colours from other surfaces. These colours can then be shared with the other four Lite Sprites available (RRP £14.99 each) which come with their own seven colours which can also be shared.
The Lite Wand contains games and special colour spells to be used with the deluxe playsets (RRP £19.99) and the Tree of Lite (RRP £39.99) which the fairies can hang on in their pods while the special canopy turns through a rainbow of colours.
Prisma and her Lite Wand is a lovely toy but, in my opinion, you need at least one other sprite and a playset to make full use of all of the available features which makes it a fairly expensive toy. It also takes quite a while to figure out the complicated instructions of the Lite Wand, but once you have got the hang of it, it is a unique idea.
Lauren loves Prisma and her Lite Wand. She says:
"I think it is creative and magical. Prisma is a very nice name and I think she is very pretty. It is very clever how I can change her colour by pointing the wand at her.
"I love collecting the colours from the colour wheel and anything else I can find that has a pretty colour. I really like the world spells as they can tell me what the weather is like in Lite-Topia. Cold spell is mainly blue and white and tells me it is chilly. Heat wave is red, orange and white and tells me it is getting warmer. Nighty night is purple and blue and tells me it is night time."
