It must be so cool to be a kid today. Over the weekend at the New York Toy Fair, Mattel announced their new “ThinkMaker”, a 3D printer built specifically for kids. This printer works with an app (for both iOS and Android) developed by Autodesk, designed for the folks at Mattel.

The multinational company known for making enterprise software for architects, engineers, and construction manufacturers has taken off all the hard edges of its otherwise complex program so kids can easily design and build their own figures. The software comes with character templates and easy to follow tutorials for new users, but also allows for kids to design from scratch. Once designs have been produced on the app, they can be printed piece by piece in the ThingMaker. Kids can then save their designs as photos on the camera roll, or upload them to the Google Drive or Dropbox. You can pick up this tiny toy maker for $300. [Purchase]
