And we LOVE it!
Recently 3Doodler sent us a 3Doodler Start Super Mega Pen Set to try and we can’t get enough! We doodle to build, decorate, personalize, and design! I love this quote from 3Doodler’s blog site UPWARDS:
“On their own, a 3D printing pen and colored plastic strands are just products. In the hands of people, they become versatile tools, and it’s in this space–where ideas & technology meet–that we see creativity unfold in so many incredible and unexpected ways.”
It truly is incredible to see my daughter’s creativity unfold with this piece of technology! As beginners we were curious: How do you use a 3Doodler pen?! The 3 Doodler Start includes templates and an activity guide in the set which made it easy for us to get started. Their website www.3doodler.com also hosts a variety of beginner-friendly tutorials and Hot Tips to help you get started using templates and to free-doodle.

During a dinner with friends we prepared to create and now we asked: What will we create?! We started with the first project in the activity book: making eyeglasses! Kate chose yellow and Talia chose aquamarine and the doodling began. I was amazed at how quickly they picked up on the skills of holding the pen slightly off the paper, moving the pen back-and-forth across the template, pausing the design with the simple click-button, and inserting bio-degradable, eco-plastic. And to my delight, the girls LOVED doodling! After eyeglasses, they wrote their names and made bracelets for each other. We had to take the 3Doodler away to get them to eat dinner! When we left that evening with our fancy bracelets and funky eyeglasses, Talia was begging her parents for a 3Doodler!
3Doodler continues to be a hit at home with creations being made weekly such as a 3D butterfly, a necklace, and rings. My daughter is constantly asking herself “What will I create today!” and I could not be happier with this fusion of technology and creativity!
