New Toys from VTech! DigiArt Color by Lights and Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



If you have small children in your family, vtech is probably already your friend. Their wide array of entertaining toys have been engaging children for years! I know we've had vtech toys in the house for as far back as I can remember, and that's a big deal because my oldest son is 30! Two of their latest and greatest items are the DigiArt Color by Lights and Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn.



The DigiArt is a unique way to color that I think most any child would enjoy. It is recommended for children ages 3-6 and it is just a fun way to see pictures come to life. By following light up colors on the board, kids can trace to draw, or they can insert and use the 'magic' coloring pages (50 are included, as are a stencil, some blank paper, and 6 crayons). The voice-activated kit will help guide you, or there is a free-play mode as well that allows inspiring artists to draw whatever tickles their fancy at the moment. You can use the dry-erase board in a traditional manner as well.

Let lights guide the way as you create your next masterpiece with DigiArt Color by Lights™. The light-up board identifies each of the 50 included coloring pages and responds by showing what color to use in each section. Click here to download additional coloring pages. Connect the light-up dots to draw shapes, objects and animals. The art board features a dry-erase surface and a stencil card for more creative play, plus a variety of melodies to enjoy while creating your work of art. Color and create with light!

  • Light-up dots indicate which areas to color
  • Includes 50 coloring pages, 10 blank papers and six crayons
  • Connect the light-up dots to draw shapes, objects and animals
  • Dry-erase surface lets you explore your creativity anytime
  • Includes one stencil card with storage


Again, finding a creative way to use lights, vtech has created Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn. She is recommended for children ages 1-4 and the first thing you might notice about her is that she is adorable!! My granddaughter is 5, and I'm not just saying this because she's mine, she is advanced. She is just one smart little cookie. I'm not surprised, her parents are pretty bright too. That being said, even though she is a year past the age parameters, and she will already know what is being taught, I know she's going to love this just the same because right now she is all about the unicorn
There are a lot of things that Starshine can do. I think the instant favorite will be that you can squeeze her tail and the pretty little wings flap! You can can also use the light-up charms to answer quiz questions, create music, and make sound effects (one sounds suspiciously like a horse neighing...so that's what a unicorn sounds like! ;) ). I think it's a lot like playing dress-up to change these buttons around on the unicorn, and it allows your little ones to see how cause-and-effect works, among many other things.

Starshine has both Spanish and English modes, and it's as easy as switching a button to select the one that you prefer. I'm taking my grandbaby on a road trip here coming up soon (a weekend road trip, since she's in Kindergarten and I can't take off work on weekdays). We're going to a fun place for Halloween that is a couple of hours away. I'm going to surprise her by having Starshine sitting in the backseat, waiting to go on the trip with us. I think it will be a big hit, and it will help make the long ride a little less boring. ;)

Go on an enchanted adventure with Starshine the Bright Lights Unicorn™. Place the seven charms on any of the three magic hearts to see her horn light up and hear colors, objects and phrases in English or Spanish. Use the charms to answer quiz questions or add sound effects to create your own special song. Squeeze the unicorn’s tail to see her beautiful wings flap and hear whimsical phrases and sound effects that encourage imaginative play. Starshine's majestic hooves feature wheels so you can push her as you head off on your next adventure!

Other Features:

  • Includes seven magical charms and a heart-shaped dish for storage
  • Features three magic heart recognition points
  • Introduces colors, objects and phrases in both English and Spanish
  • Horn lights up and changes color
  • Music mode lets you add sound effects to melodies

Honestly, I think you just can't go wrong with the vtech brand. They offer well-constructed, appealing toys for learning that kids just love. You can learn more about these and other vtech toys by visiting their website. You can also follow along on TwitterFacebook, Instagram, Pinterest and/or YouTube.
