The company behind the famous 3D printing pen, 3Doodler is introducing a new toy for preschool and kindergarten-aged children.

If you have not heard of the 3D printing pen, it a portable 3D printer in the shape of a pen that can let users draw 3d structures in midair. This tool seemed to be very appealing not only for kids but for creative people.

Let’s move away from the pen for now. However, 3Doodler is launching a new toy called 3D Build and Play. The device looks like a glue gun with a crank, It lets kids fill molds with plastic filaments that can be assembled into figurines.

The toy has got a price tag of $29.99, which makes it one of the most affordable 3d printing products out there. It’s also safe for kids as young as 4-year-olds.

Since launching on Kickstarter in 2013, 3Doodler has introduced updated iterations of its 3D printing pen including a more professional model that can use wood, copper and bronze filaments.

The 3D Build and Play is very different from the pen. It’s more suited for young kids, It’s even got molds which guide the kids on the characters that they can print. The set also comes with a storybook about those characters and pop-up backgrounds for the kids’ creations to live in.

The 3D Build and Play is available for preorder now and will soon be available on retailers like Amazon, by mid-2020.
