Kids today are more attuned to new technology and its use than most adults. That is why tech toys are quite popular among many of them. Their learning curve and innate curiosity helps them learn faster about new things that can displace any frustration they may have. Toys like this new Mattel ThingMaker 3D appeals to the new generation of kids out to explore different ways of play.
The Mattel ThingMaker 3D is a 3D printer designed with kids in mind. It allows the kids to create 3D figures that they design themselves using an accompanying app. Kids can choose from a template of figures and designs to help them start off into creating their own toy figures. They can also use their boundless creativity in order to create customized figures. The sky is the limit when it comes to what the kids can think up of making with the Mattel ThingMaker3D.
And since it is designed for kids, the Mattel ThingMaker 3D comes with several safety features to ensure that kids can use the 3D printer safely. The heated print head safely retracts out of reach once it completes printing. The 3D printer also comes with an automated door lock that keeps the door closed when printing has begun, to prevent small hands from touching any of the heated elements inside. An integrated filament storage system allows for a safer way to feed the printer with filaments for printing without the risk of small hands touching heated objects.
The Mattel ThingMaker 3D is an ideal toy for creative kids who love the idea of making their own toys. It is an ideal toy for kids aged 14 years old and above. It is available at Amazon for pre-order at $300. It is expected to be available sometime in mid-October of this year.
