This is a time lapse I did of an amazing toy from the 60’s I found at an antique market in Winnipeg.  It was made by hasbro, and is called the Astro Lite.  It feels like the love child of LiteBrite and Tinker Toys, in which you can build futuristic city scapes, that are lit from a normal light bulb inside the base.  There is also a wheel inside the base with 4 colour gels (blue, red, yellow, clear) that you can rotate by hand to change the colour of your City of Tomorrow!!!  The way the clear plastic allows the transmission of the light from the base up through the pieces is truly marvellous.  Might just be the best 20 bucks I ever spent.
