NEW YORK, February 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

3Doodler Start inspires young creators worldwide to bring ideas to life in 3D 

3Doodler, the maker of the world's first 3D printing pen, has today announced the launch of the 3Doodler Start, available now for pre-order at http://www.the3doodler.com/start. Poised to take the kids' tech market by storm, the wireless, safe and child friendly pen is designed specifically for young creators aged 8-13.

The 3Doodler Start, the latest innovation from the makers of the world-renowned 3Doodler pen, sees the pen's design completely reworked with no hot points, one speed and one temperature - allowing young budding designers, future architects, and the artists of tomorrow to draw anything their imagination desires in 3D.

Daniel Cowen, Co-Founder, said: "3Doodler Start inspires creativity, design, building and spatial understanding, opening up 3D creation to a whole new generation. This is not a fad toy; we believe that, like LEGO and now Minecraft, the 3Doodler Start will become part of every kid's upbringing.

"The core values of 3Doodler are creative freedom and limitless imagination, so it was a natural progression to create a pen for a younger audience. The 3Doodler Start provides the perfect educational platform for kids around the world and we cannot wait to see what the next generation creates."  

No longer will kids be restricted to pen and paper; the 3Doodler Start encourages imaginative thinking and independent play. As well as being a whole new dimension of creativity, 3Doodler Start prolongs the lives of other toys and games. The sight of a discarded toy is all too common to a parent, but equipped with a 3Doodler Start, the old figurine, model or game instantly becomes a canvas for young creators.

3Doodler Start is available to pre-order now at the3doodler.com/start at a special introductory price of US$39.99, and will ship in May for delivery worldwide.
