A Toy That Builds Other Toys

HT_ThingMaker_3D_Printing_Ecosystem_hb_160215_4x3_992

For all of your gadget nerds out there, (like me) who still watch adventure time and argue who is better between Aang and Katara, this item is sure to get you excited.

The High Tech Toy Convention is just being finished up and one particular caught my attention. Thingmaker is a design and play toy where a kid (or an adult, let’s be serious) can draw, sketch, or whatever to design their toy and the Thingmaker brings it to life.

The Thingmaker is part 3-D printer, part awesome and it actual brings creativity to life. Image being able to actually create a bunny T-Rex hybrid. Why you ask? Because I can!

The thingmaker will retail on Amazon for only $299 this fall. But, I already know the real cost will be re-stocking the “ink” which in this case will be paints, polymers, plastic materials, and more.

That being said, for any creative kids or adults, this might just be the tickets. Pre-Order is available now on Amazon.
