If the Toybox 3d Printer looks familiar to you, it’s not just because of the toy creation fantasies you may have indulged in when you were a child. It’s also been featured on Shark Tank, where its simple but versatile design impressed the resident sharks. Toybox’s functionality doesn’t get bogged down in any complicated processes, and in fact, most of its functions come through exceedingly simple one-touch actions, making kids and even adults that aren’t particularly technologically inclined its ideal users. And Toybox also differs from most 3D printers on the market in that you don’t need to remove any excess material from the final product with a knife – another advantage for any young toymakers that get to use it.
Toybox works with a companion app that’s equally simple to use, and through which you can choose from an always-growing library of preset toy designs. If you’re feeling more creative, you can also use the app to create and upload designs of your own, allowing for nearly infinite possibilities. And of course, all the magic happens in front of a fully transparent glass viewing window so you can watch your toys be created from scratch in real-time. For an idea of how it works, you can check it out in action in the video below:
