If you had asked me when I was five what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer would have been clear as day: Rainbow Brite. This was, of course, way back before I understood how much responsibility it was to infuse an entire universe with color and how my “adult” heroine was probably only nine or ten herself (which leads me to ask the obvious question: where were Mr. and Mrs. Brite?)
I recently tried to sit my 18-month-old daughter down in front of a Rainbow Brite book, certain she would be as dazzled by the kaleidoscope of vivid shades and happy, smiling kids and sprites (remember them?) as I was. As it turns out, she has chosen to prove her independence in this one tiny area and has decided to call every color on earth “purple.” What to do? I got it. Remove the stale yellow night light currently in her nursery and replace it with Rainbow In My Room. Genius.
The Rainbow In My Room Light projects a prismatic rainbow onto your child’s wall or ceiling, filling the space with an enchanting image that is sure to spread cheer and capture his or her imagination. Using LED lights, the rainbow can be viewed in its entirety or color by color, which sounds equally magical (and helpful as I attempt to show baby the difference between red and her beloved purple). The projector turns off automatically, so you don’t have to worry about wasting the battery power, and comes with a helpful instruction manual complete with rainbow facts you can share with your little one.
