Thank goodness someone finally realized the need to update the Lite Brite. When I was younger the Lite Brite was one of my favorite toys but I hated how you punched out the black sheets and then you had to go buy more. International Playthings has a great toy called the Illumino. It kind of reminds me of a modern computer screen and it looks pretty cool sitting on my son's dresser. The design of this is so smart - it includes storage for the colored pegs, has a push through black screen that holds them in place, and is made to turn off after 15 minutes (saves batteries & makes a great night light!). Connor had a thing about filling in every hole instead of trying to make something from the pattern book but it amused him for long periods of time. He would fill up the holes and then start over again. Check out this video to see it in use:
