An assortment of dot-S pieces (note the SD card for size comparison).

Dot-S (ドッツ, styled as .S) also known as Dot-Pin is a toy, similar to a Lite-Brite, created in 2005 by Japanese company Tomytec. The toys allow for the creation of pictures by placing colored pegs into holes in one or more boards. Many sets allow for the creation of various sprite characters from classic video games, with each peg representing one pixel. [1]


There are 56 kits, including a starter kit which contains 17 colors. Many of sets are based on popular licenses from various companies. [2] Only some of the kits are listed below.
