The Kids live with Rainbow Brite and Twink in the Colour Castle. there are seven Colour Kids - one for each colour of the rainbow.
Red is a smooth-talking, full-of-charm, fun-loving boy who is always searching for new adventure and looking for someone to rescue from trouble. But he is so sure of himself that often Murky Dismal is able to capture him and throw him in The Pits. Although the rest of the Colour Kids sometimes get fed up with the stories he tells, he is so full of energy and fun that he makes them all feel strong. He is the colour of strength and courage and makes sure that there are always enough red Star Sprinkles ready.
She is in charge of all the sprites who live and work in the Orange Meadows. Lala is a very sweet and pretty girl, and is very good at getting her own way. She always makes sure that she looks her best in case she sees Red Butler on whom she has a big crush! She can be a bit pushy, but Rainbow Brite knows she can rely on Lala to provide lots of orange Star Sprinkles when the situation requires lots of energy and zest!
Rainbow Brite's favourite Colour Kid is Canary, because yellow is such a cheerful colour! Canary always looks on the bright side, no matter how bad things seem, and she helps everyone to cheer up and smile again. because she is so trusting, poor Canary Yellow is often caught by Murky Dismal, but Rainbow always rescues her. Canary Yellow's sprites work in the mines of the Yellow Plains to provide all the Star Sprinkles Rainbow Brite uses to make the yellow colour needed in the world.
Patty is very mischievous. She just loves playing joke on everyone! But she has such a sweet nature that the others usually forgive her. She is very proud of being in charge of the Green Grange section and does tend to boast a little. but when you think just how hard she and her Sprites work, producing all the green needed in the world, well, she has every reason to be proud, doesn't she? think how many leaves and blades of grass there are!
Buddy and his blue Sprites spend their days in the Blue Zone making sure there are enough Star Sprinkles for the blue sky, the waves of the sea and the blue flowers and all the blue things in the world. But Buddy is also a great athlete. he loves health food, and he talks about it non-stop. He often organises team events and other sports programmes and sporting activities. the others do get a bit bored with all this, but they try not to show it as Buddy is a very lovable boy.
Indigo's ambition is to be a famous actress, and she spends her life 'on stage', rehearsing and reciting lines from famous plays, and wearing very imaginative costumes! She and her Sprites in the Indigo Acres are rather dramatic and given to dreaming, and Indigo sees herself as a great artist full of drama and emotion. but she does make sure that there is a good supply if indigo Star Sprinkles.
The Star Sprinkles which Shy Violet and her Sprites produce in Violet Valley are the colour of wisdom and knowledge. Bespectacled Violet is a shy genius who spends most of her time reading and writing all about colour. She can help Rainbow Brite solve almost any problem, however difficult, and everyone asks her advice because she is always right!
