Lite Brites were incredibly popular in the late eighties and early nineties, as parents were buying them during the holidays for their children. However, Kenner issued a warning during several holiday seasons, as several families were not supervising their offspring playing with the toy. Often times, young children would get ahold of the colored pegs included, and start eating them, leading to several attempted lawsuits. Kenner solved this problem temporarily by packaging the pegs in a resealable plastic bag, and putting a recommended age on the box.
Nothing like changing your child's diaper and finding colorful plastic designs inside.
