I'm pretty happy- it appears that Hallmark is going to try making some new Rainbow Brite toys starting in August of 2015!



from http://rainbowbrite.net/

I especially LOVE Twink (the white plushie guy) but I would also like the doll, Starlite (although he looks a teensie bit weird), and the minikin figures-

EDIT:
What worries me- is that the stuff will apparently be sold only at certain stores- Apparently this is the list of Hallmark stores that currently carry some new Rainbow Brite Merch (t-shirts, etc):http://rainbowbrite.net/Hallmark-store-list-Rainbow-Brite.pdf  It is not necessarily the list that will get the dolls and toys- there may be a wider distribution, we just don't know yet!

So Katie of RainbowBrite.net is going to keep us informed once we have an idea where the toys will be appearing. (Personally I hope we can order them online, since I don't know of a Hallmark store nearby.)  Once I hear something I will pass it on to you! (Or you can check rainbowbrite.net on facebook or on their website for updates :D

UPDATE:

New image of upcoming...




BIG UPDATE!  THE ITTY BITTY Plushies are now up on Hallmark.com! (4 days earlier than they had said)  Looks like these will be online exclusives -  hurry and get them before they sell out!  http://shop.hallmark.com/rainbow-brite/?searchkey=rainbow%20brite

It is looking like the other dolls/plush might show up online as well-  I am super grateful as finding a Hallmark store can be somewhat difficult for me :D

Cool! I agree about Starlite though... kinda looks like a hooven rainbow-haired dinosaur. If he looks better in final execution, I shall consider adding him to my collection!

There are 2 stores in Louisville, KY where I live that we will be selling those items. 1 of those stores only happens to be 5 minutes away from my house. However, I don't collect Rainbow Brite. It was a great idea sharing the list of stores though, so that fellow collectors can have a heads up!  ^.^

I might want a starlight if it looks better as the final product.

Yeah- who knows what the final product will look like- I guess these are just concepts so they could look wildly different.

Also I think that Rainbow Brite doll is just a stock photo of the vintage doll- so there is no way she will look exactly like that.

I do hope they fix Starlite...

I also just found out that the store list is what is currently carrying some new Rainbow Brite Merch- the distribution of the toys may be wider (and it may not) - but the sweet gal at Rainbowbrite.net will update us when she knows :D

Don't panic yet- I had the same reaction and Katie (the person who has been apparently communicating with Hallmark) says that they don't know the distribution of the NEW products yet (the dolls and toys) and that the list above is just for the Rainbow Brite products that are already out (some t-shirts and the like- no toys)

I saw this on rainbowbrite.net and was very excited. I wanted to go to the nearest Hallmark store that carried the merchandise, but I decided not to go because it is about 2 hours away and I had been there not too long ago :,( sniff

I'm hoping when I do go they still have some stuff left.

Galactica, are you also on the Rainbow Brite forum?

I was really hoping for some cute small dolls based on the new character designs.

Hi Sukey! I am on there once in a while- as Galacticatt :D
But the forum is mostly inactive these days- so not so much

Remember that the DOLLS and toys aren't expected until August- the only thing that is there now, are things like tshirts/canvas bags- non toy stuff.
