Go retro with the new iPad app from Arik Devens called Bright Bright – Draw with glowing light pegs. When I was a kid, I could spend hours punching little colorful pegs into the black holes on my Lite Brite and create all sorts of wonderful pictures. I must also admit, I’ve never purchased one for my own kids because the little pegs were just one more thing to add to the clutter of Polly Pockets, Barbie accessories and any mixture of small toy pieces. Enter Bright Bright , the easy-to-use digital version of colorful pegs and creative pictures I’m happy for my kids to use.
The Bright Bright screen includes a black “peg board” with a variety of tools laid out across the top. Users have access to 7 peg color choices, different picture stencils, a light switch and more. Kids can create pictures using pre-made stencils or design original pieces of art. Once their finished, flip the light switch on and watch the pictures glow. Add an interesting effect with the Color Wave feature and watch the colors of your work change before your eyes.
It’ll take a little while to complete a stencil but don’t worry if you’re not able to finish your project in one sitting, using the Save and Load features lets you go back to your work anytime. Then show off your favorite pictures by saving them to photos or emailing them to grandma.
