Hi Reddit! I’m the CEO of Toybox - The 3D printer for toys. Back after a year to answer more questions about our bottomless toybox, 3D Printers for toys, and 3D printing in general! AMAA
My name is Ben Baltes, and I’m lucky enough to work with a small team of extremely talented engineers and designers based out of Oakland to create the ultimate toy - one that makes you toys!
Inspired by the type of toys that helped us build amazing things when we were kids, we set out to build the ultimate tool for creative children. Something to allows kids to create real tangible toys without any formal training. We’re extremely passionate about leveraging the power of 3D printing to encourage children to start building. We believe this next generation will leverage these types of technologies to create amazing things!
A year ago, we did an AMA here on Reddit and had such a great experience we wanted to come back. Since then, we’ve built on some your feedback, finished a product, and actually sold out of our first batch of kid-friendly 3D printers!
You can check out more info about what we do at our website here: www.make.toys
Also, just like last time, to show our appreciation we’ll be mailing custom 3D printed toys to the top 4 comments (2 for the highest votes, 2 for the ones we like the most). We’ll ship it to anywhere in the continental US.
Last time Kanye West never thanked us for the snoo we sent him :(
Anyways, let’s get to it, AMAA!
