Kids come out very creative at a very early age. But if parents do not try to nurture it while they grow up, it is possible that this innate creativity can fade away in time. It helps to provide kids with different means to explore and express their creativity. One example is by providing them with fun tools like the new 3Doodler Start+ Essentials Pen Set.
The 3Doodler Start+ Essentials Pen Set is a 3D printing tool designed for kids in mind. It allows children to create interesting 3D artworks or drawings. It is a wireless printing pen big enough for small hands to hold to and convenient to use. Kids can use it to draw on practically anything- on shoes, on paper, or even draw on air.
Using the pen is simple and easy for kids six years old and above. Kids only need to turn it on and let it heat up for a bit. They only then need to insert a strand of plastic of their desired color and press the round button found on the pen. The plastic will then melt and flow like ink from a typical pen. To stop the flow, kids only need to press the same button again.
With the 3Doodler Start+ Essentials Pen Set, kids can also discover and learn how to draw 3D structures. First they need to draw several flat shapes using the pen and then try to weld it together with some additional plastic. There are no external heating elements on the 3D printing pen, making them safe for kids to use. The melted plastic is also cool enough for kids to touch immediately, preventing any accidental burns.
The 3Doodler Start+ Essentials Pen Set comes with a pen as well as a ready set of 72 colorful, BPA-free plastic filaments. The set also comes with an activity book that contains 10 project ideas. The project ideas help introduce kids to the concepts of creative 3D printing and help them learn on how to use them pen before they start out to create their own designs. The 3Doodler Start+ Essentials Pen Set is ideal for kids from 6 years old and above. It is available at their website for around US$50.
