One of the perks of being a parent is seeing your childhood dreams come true for someone much younger and smaller than you, and one of the best examples is 3D printer technology. Now anything you can imagine can become a physical reality, provided you have the right tools and know-how.
Enter the , now only $ 315 (normally $ 469). This kid-friendly machine can turn anything you imagine into a real physical toy. The included app includes the “ever-expanding” Toybox library of customizable printable and playable toys, but you can also create your own custom designs that will print just as easily. If you plan ahead, you can even create epic multi-part 3D creations, like an elaborate dollhouse or a working pinball machine.
All about the is kid-friendly, from the one-touch app functionality to the fact that toys can be removed from the printer without a sharp knife or dangerous tool (unlike most other 3D printers). With these design choices, you can feel comfortable letting your little ones use it with minimal supervision – and you can rest assured that you won’t have to solve mysteries or complicated problems.
However, the real value of the ToyBox is how it stimulates creativity in a way that will only be more beneficial as technology advances. Once 3D printing really takes off, your kids will feel quite comfortable and familiar with it. And if it never does, it’s still a really cool toy.
