How to get started?
If you want to run your toybox, all you have to do is download the application, which is present on both App Store and Google play to facilitate the Android and the Apple users equally. After downloading the application, you have to connect the Toybox 3D printer and your computer or smartphone to the Wifi.
There are other products available in the market as well which allow the users to print toys like the QIDI TECH 3D Printer, but
they lack the magic which Toybox has. The other products such as Toy Maker or Moose Toy don’t have as much variety as Toybox has. Apart from this the Toybox 3D printer also provides a chance to parents and kids to create their toys. There are different types of toys in their catalog of the Toybox 3D printer which include, cars, swords, buildings, creatures, characters animals and a lot more.
The app has a very nice feature in which the kids can make their own Block Buddy. The whole structure of the block buddy can be easily customized by the users, which makes it a major attraction for the kids. Furthermore, kids can even draw their toys. As soon, as I got my hands on the Toybox 3D printer, the first thing I did was that I explored this amazing feature. I got a
chance to create my very own block buddy.
Block Buddy is a character which can be customized in accordance to the likes and dislikes of the users. I got to choose from a verity of eye shapes, nose shapes, colors, dresses, hairstyles and much more. It was fun to experiment with the different looks and come up with the character I wanted to own and play with.
After creating my very own block buddy I went on to design something of my own choice. The drawing option which is present in the Toybox 3D printer application gave me the freedom to make any kind of toy I wanted and have it in my hands to play with. The draw feature allows you to draw anything you want and you can even go ahead and add a background to it.
There are various shapes which can be added to the drawings you create and there are a couple of other tools as well which can assist you in creating the toy of your own choice. I used the text feature and experimented with the different options it had. It can be said that this device is very creative and provides an affordable way for children to get the toys of their choice. The device also enhances the imaginative skills of the users as they get to give a structure to their dream toys.
Once the users are done creating their block buddy or choosing the toy they want, all they have to do is select the parts they wanted to print first. As the printing process takes time the users have to wait for a little. One part after the other is printed by the 3D printer, however, you get to chose the order of the parts for printing. Once you select the order the application or the website will ask you to connect your 3D printer, WIFI so that the process of printing can be initiated.
As the toybox 3D printer has been designed to attract children, in particular, it has a very easy to understand interface. Also, there is no need to worry about the safety of the children while using the device as everything has been taken care off by the creators.
