Rainbow Brite :: Sprites

"Welcome to the colourful world of Rainbow Brite!"

Rainbow Brite started life as an animated television series introduced by Hallmark in 1984. From there came plush dolls, poseable PVC figures and miniatures, playsets and an abundance of other accessories including books, videos, comics, stationary, bedding and much more. Rainbow Brite was re-issued in 2010 by Plamates Toys

Large Plush Sprites

"These colourful, plush sprites help Rainbow Brite keep the world bright and full of happiness. They're fun-loving and cheerful, with furry bodies and soft fabric arms and legs. Come with its own story."

There were six 12 inch male sprites produced, I don't beleive that Hammy or IQ were ever made at this size. The male sprites had yellow stars on their antennas and wonky smiles.

Twink Romeo OJ

Spark >Lucky Champ

There were six 12 inch female sprites produced at this size. The female sprites had red stars and little lips on their smiles.

Hatfull Sprites

"Each of these sprites sports a zany hat and comes with a different saying that fits its personality."

There were six Hatful sprites produced, all male (IQ and OJ were the two unproduced male sprites of this set). They were 5 1/2 inches tall.

There were four Happy Talk sprites produced for American food outlet Taco Bell. They were 7 inches tall and squeaked when shook, and had one hand that was shaped like a claw so they could hold onto things.

Baby Sprites

"These are the cutest sprites ever! They're colourful, silly and wonderfully soft. And because they're just babies, they each come with a diaper and a tiny round home."

Baby Sprites came in plastic balls, which opened up so you could take out the sprites. They also each came with a nappie. The balls are extremely rare & hard to find.

Other Plush Sprites

Other sprites include Clip-On Sprites (clips on tops of heads), Gripping Sprites (hands gripped together so they could hold onto things) and ones with wooly hair (rather than furry). I have no idea how many characters were produced in each style.
