Draw Pictures without the Mess

The Crayola Digital Light Designer responds to the stylus's touch to give children a mess-free and exciting way to draw--with light! Since the dome works by displaying light, drawings can be erased easily, re-created, or coloured over. The dome also features pre-programmed scenes, with drawings of butterflies, flowers, spaceships, and more, which children can animate or alter.

Animation and Movie Features

The fun doesn't end once kids have finished their drawings. Animation options allow kids to make their creations move. They can also create six-frame movies with the Movie Maker activity on the light dome.

Engaging Games Keep Kids Occupied

The Digital Light Designer also features games. Children can create funny faces, race cars through obstacles, discover hidden images, learn how to draw without lifting the pen, draw half an image that gets reflected, and watch their designs change colour in a light show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very cool March 6 2014

I bought this for a 4 year old and he had it figured out before I could even read the instructions. However when there were issues with him trying to figure it out, it became increasingly difficult for him to understand (I too had a hard time with the menu). Once figured out he played for hours with it.

This toy like most kids toys is a BATTERY GUZZLER. If you know the child using it want to use it a lot or for long periods, I'd recommend the plug in adapter for a wall outlet additional.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids will love it, parents will find it annoying. Oct. 18 2012
By S. Schreifels - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My 7 year old daughter wants to ask Santa for this toy for Christmas, and Santa at our house is an early Christmas shopper, so I picked it up today so I could test it out and make sure she wouldn't be dissapointed on Christmas morning. I had read other reviews that said it is very loud. When I first turned it on I didn't think it was that loud (sounds like a fan running) but after playing with it for 20 minutes to test it out and then turning it off I had a constant buzzing in my ear for about 15 minutes. While testing it I went through some of the different modes especially free draw and games. It does have some really cool effects and games that I know my daughter will love. I tested it in a well lit area and the colors and lights on it were still pretty bright. The menu to choose different options does seem a bit complicated and my daughter will definitely need help navigating through it at first. You do need to hold a yellow button in on the stylus while you are drawing for it to work well which may be difficult for younger kids. I would have given this 5 stars if it would be much quieter, in fact I am surprised Crayola didn't try to fix this area before releasing it as parents will get annoyed by this quickly. This will be an in the playroom with the door closed kind of toy. It also needs a lot of large batteries. I hope they last awhile or this could get expensive to keep this thing running. It would also be nice if it had a few more colors to pick from as there are only 8 and they are pretty much primary colors. All in all I have decided to keep it for santa to give my daughter. She will love the lights and cool effects it can do which out weigh the bad points of this toy. Kids that like to draw and do art type projects will really like this. Plus now it is already to play with so less work for me Christmas morning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Digital Doodler! Oct. 25 2012

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This reminded me of the 80's light bright that you used to put pins in and make designs but a digital version. You put the designer pin to the 360 surface and can create designs, play preprogrammed games, and make simple animations. Look at the picture on the box and you get a good example of how detailed you can get. You can save up to 50 images on the designer itself so gone are the days of creating a light bright picture and snapping a polaroid of it to prove you made something awesome. You have effects you can add to enhance your drawing and even activate scrolling messages with the picture. It requires 2 AAA batteries for the pen and 4 D batteries for the actual Designer base. The batteries did not come with the item and I should note that you can buy a power adapter for a non battery use. The recommended age is 3 and up but I would say the target range is 4 to 7. There is a warning that children who are prone to seizures should consult a doctor before use. This is a fun toy for younger children my five year old enjoyed it and to be honest I want have to buy a coloring book anytime soon. My 10 year old played with it but found other things more advanced to occupy her time like an Ipad or a gaming system soon after. It is colorful and fun for younger children but for an older more technology advanced child it will be a trivial designer toy. If your child still likes coloring books this is a great toy to keep them active and to help them start expressing themselves creatively. If your child is older and finds coloring or doodling beneath them than keep searching for something more advanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars You light up my room. Oct. 24 2012

My daughter is 6 years old and very artistic so we always like to test new products that allow her to explore her talent. This Crayola light designer is perfect for that. You can change your colors with a click of your pen and can draw anywhere on the dome.
Click your pen again and set your drawings in motion, draw something really cool and save it for later display. Hit the reset button and start over, if you want a change of pace you can also play a game. My kids both use a ton of paper for drawing so hopefully this will become a fun alternative.
However it does require 4D and 2AAA batteries and no they are not included, so hopefully they last.
Yes the toy makes noise it reminds me of a fan however it doesn't bother me as I simply tune it out. Worst case your child can always play with it in their room with the door closed. Just remember your buying it for them not you (usually anyway), this is a cool crayola product and its worth it. I can see this getting a lot of use in this house for years to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry... Not impressed. Oct. 25 2012
By Heather LaRee - Published on Amazon.com

Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Recommended ages: 6 - 15. Granted, I am 60 and was looking forward to a cool new toy to share with my young nephew. I can't speak to how kids like this gadget, but I wanted to write a review for the adult who is considering this Crayola Light Designer.

First - NO comparable match to the "old" Lite Brite in my opinion. Granted, this is a battery-light show with action and not old school, so truly not in the same league, but remembering waaaay back with my younger sons - Lite Brite was engaging, creative, and a different way to "color" back then.

This item is an odd shape ~ perhaps fun and interesting at first glance, but not a parent's favorite for "putting away" unless you keep it in its box that has a flat bottom and top but sides are sloped (pyramid sloped). Unlikely the box would remain with the dome. So, not a simple "stack in the closet" toy.

Be flush with batteries! Requires (4) big "D" batteries for the unit. Requires (2) AAA for the stylus pen. Yes, I knew it required batteries before receiving this item, but when a parent is facing down a gazillion choices in a store, that requirement is an additional expense and extra step, they may not want to purchase and keep in supply to replace.

I raised two boys, so I'm not completely inept when it comes to unscrewing small screws in order to load batteries...but these are tiny screws and took me a while to unscrew, load and then re-screw. (not fun and a delay in getting going to play)

I turned the dome "on" and it has a small whirring winding-up to speed sound, which I liked - and then bright lights begin to glow through the shield. Oh Cool...BUT... now what do we do???

The Instructions on what to tap, where to tap, were not easy to my eye and brain. I called over my husband who is Mr. TecMan -- a guy who loves to read manuals. He thought the instructions weren't clearly and simply laid out for the adult reader. He lost interest quickly.

No way could an 8 year old get going on playing with this item in less than a few minutes.

Honestly, I am not impressed and at $45.00 (plus the added price of 6 batteries) don't equate the OLD light-brite bang for the buck.

(as of this original writing 10/25/12, the Amazon site for this item is offering a $5 rebate on this item)... but still. $40 is a lot of $ these days (+ battery cost).

The sound isn't obnoxious in my opinion, but this "toy" is (setting it up, figuring it out, storing it)

In my opinion...An artistic child would derive far more pleasure (and time spent) with sketch pads or a kids' drawing guide, markers or a computer program for $45+ than this Crayola contribution. Sorry...Thumbs Down for me!

***Amazon contacts me when there is a comment to my review.

I am perplexed at the negative comments about my review. Folks seem rather attacking and upset with me for giving it one star.

I wrote this from the perspective of a 60-year old Mother/Aunt and say so to ADD to the other reviews from adults with children. I stand by my 1-star for me.

If you're a parent with a child aged 6-15, I hope you will find 20+ reviews that will help you make your informed decision.

If you're an upset adult who loves this product, just write your own happy and thrilled review and be a part of the purpose of these reviews. Just sayin'...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lightbrite of the Past has gone DIGITAL! Nov. 11 2012

For all of us who grew up with the original Light Brite toy and loved it here is an old favorite made NEW again. The Crayola Light Designer is a Unique Digital Coloring system. It comes with a Digital Pen, and the Digital Black Dome. Both Require Batteries unless you purchase an AC Adapter for the Dome separately (which I definitely recommend if your child loves it as much as mine does)

The Crayola Light Designer is essentially a mini computer. This of course allows it to have lots of cool features such as 8 games and Activity Apps, as well as 2 different Animation Modes that will bring your digital art to life! It also has 5 different special drawing effects which you can add to your designs.

The recommended age is for 6 and up, I would say that age 6 is a little young for a child to enjoy this toy on their own. Switching between modes can be a little tricky and for young children it may require adult help. Also because it is a mini computer like all computers it has a built in fan, as well as the module that creates the digital effects spin within it. This can create a mild buzzing noise which some may find annoying but it doesn't take away from the fact that this is truly a wonderful toy.

I would highly recommend the Crayola Light Designer it has been for me one of the most creative toys I have seen in a long time.
