This paper toy is Rainbow Brite, the title protagonist, a lovable, creative little girl who uses the colors of the Rainbow to color our world and our lives, based on the same named animated television series, the papercraft created by Alicia Rubio.
Though she may be small, her good deeds and the magic she performs with her Color Belt more than make up for her size. Her real name is Wisp before taking this name. She wields a magical tool called the Color Belt that produces a powerful multicolored energy force in the form of a rainbow. She can use it for various feats, including enabling Starlight to fly by creating a bridge for him to travel on.
Rainbow is carefree and fun-loving, but her work comes first. She might abandon a playful afternoon to save a sun-drenched wheat field from losing all its yellow or to save a rain-starved forest from losing all its green. She colors things by scattering the "Star Sprinkles," which become magical only when sifted through Rainbow's very own fingers. Along with her horse, Starlite, and her helpers, The Color Kids, Rainbow Brite brings hope and happiness to all.
Rainbow Brite is a media franchise by Hallmark Cards, introduced in 1983. The animated television series of the same name was started in 1984.
In the franchise's backstory, a little orphan girl named Wisp is taken by an unknown force to the Colorless World. She must find the Sphere of Light, and along the way she befriends a sprite, Twink, and a majestic white horse with rainbow hair known as Starlite. She rescues the seven Color Kids and finds the Color Belt, which is the tool she needs to bring color to the land. After using it to defeat the King of Shadows, an evil hooded being with twitchy fingers, the unknown force renames Wisp as Rainbow Brite. She and the Color Kids live in Rainbow Land and are in charge of all the colors on Earth.
The Color Belt needs colored Star Sprinkles to work. Each Color Kid is in charge of his/her respective color, and their Sprites mine Color Crystals from the Color Caves, which are turned into Star Sprinkles by a process much like using cookie cutters. In the 2009 release, the color belt still functions, but Rainbow Brite and the other Sky Powers have scepters as well.
The movie Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer, made in 1985, added a magical planet of light named Spectra, which is also called the diamond planet. All the light in the universe must pass through Spectra before coming to Earth. The Dark Princess causes problems when she tries to wrap ropes around Spectra, which blocks out the light and throws Earth into a permanent winter.
