The entertainment device may be a video- and/or audio-capable device, such as a TV set, a computer, a CD- or tape recorder/player, a toy, and the like. The illumination source may be an LED system that is controlled by a microprocessor to vary the color and intensity of the illumination produced by the illumination source in response to the illumination control signal.
