    Loves It!

    It's only the best invention ever.  I think I loved it because the light made my pictures look so much prettier... I've always had a thing for things that were shiny/glowing.  Actually, I wish I still had one.  Do they even make them anymore?

    Damn! I Miss Those!

    I used to spend hours putting the colored pegs in the holes.  Then my sister would scatter my stuff and I would lose them! =[

    Fun

    The fact that I used to have a lightbright just popped in my head. That thing was so much fun. I was always losing the colored pegs though.
