Proven Fan Favorites
In June, Hallmark offered a Limited Edition run of an exclusive batch of Rainbow Brite itty bittys®. Only 500 of each of the six Rainbow Brite Limited Edition itty bittys characters were produced, and they sold out on Hallmark.com in five days.
The RainbowBrite.com website was imagined and developed by Feeln, the creators of the new Rainbow Brite animated series that debuted in 2014. The website brings the characters from Feeln’s Rainbow Brite series to life with colorful activities, videos and rainbow fun for fans.
