3Doodler’s latest device is a combined 3D printing and storytelling device, which is designed for younger hands, ages 4 and up. Called 3D Build & Play, the $29.99 multicolor printer is powered by an activity guide that also includes a story, written for the device, that features 3D jungle characters including Jim the Giraffe, Elle the Elephant, Pete the Parrot and Leo the Lion. .
Once children have read the story, they can continue to build, add to the story, or print whatever they want with a BPA-free, non-toxic, biodegradable plastic that melts at a low temperature of 110ºF. The newest 3Doodler pen is also designed to be used with the left or right hand. It also features a crank that helps kids control the plastic as it comes out of the device, making this a decidedly low-tech tech toy.

3D printing pens are simpler, more immediate ways for kids to create objects without the need for more expensive professional printers. The 3Doodler pens scale to multiple age ranges. The company’s 3Doodler Start was previously the pen designed for kids ages 6 and up, with Create+ aimed at ages 14 and up. The new 3D Build & Play now expands the age range to an even younger user.
“3D Build & Play brings the creative fun of our Start pen without the learning curve for younger users,” 3Doodler CEO Daniel Cowen said in a statement. “The system we have developed, which allows children to manipulate and create in 3D, is a great benefit for parents looking to improve their children’s basic motor skills. The included molds make it easy to create 3D objects by simply filling and taking them out. There’s nothing on the market today that makes 3D creation as simple or fast for young creators.”
People can pre-order the 3D Build & Play now, and the pen is expected to ship during the second quarter of 2020.
