3D printing for kids, this weekend in Toronto!

Back in January, I blogged my visit to Toronto's MakerKids, a wonderful makerspace for kids. Now, MakerKids is running a 3D printing weekend for kids at Toronto's Harbourfront centre. Andy from Makerkids writes, "This weekend, at the 11th annual Toronto International Circus Festival (from May 16th-18th at the Harbourfront Centre), MakerKids will be helping kids to do 3D printing of circus creatures! At our station at this free event, kids will design fantastical animals and characters they'd like to see in a circus using the 123D Creature app. The crowd's favourites will be 3D printed for their designers to bring home!"

MakerKids 3D Printing at Harbourfront this Weekend (Thanks, Andy!)


  1. I made a typo in the date! We are at Harbourfront this weekend 18-20th and our 3D station will be at the Marilyn Brewer Community Space 235 Queens Quay West. We will be there 11-5 pm Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

  2. I bet a kid could fix all the problems with those stupid gun files everyone’s trying to print. 

  3. i think 3d printing and children go well together. i still remember as a kid making 3d models with amorphium and how i would have loved to print those models off.
    and it’s something,oddly enough, i hadn’t thought of before: making toys for kids, or more to the point letting kids make their own toys or print off their own toys or props for their toys.
    hell i remember how awesome it was as a kid that i could make colour prints of things from my computer or scan things and print them off, it was amazing.
