So whats the difference between väärikkät and kirjavat?

I really don't know. I think they are synonymous.

They are synonymous, but I think theres a bit of difference. Värikkäät just has a lot of colours in them, might be just one colour if its really bright/eyecatching. Kirjavat is more a pattern, like stripes of many colours.
