With the quick-fix appeal of video games and their own cell phones, it can be tough to keep kids focused on supposedly "educational" toys. And while it may seem counter-intuitive to fight tech with more tech, we're all in when it comes to the Toybox 3D Printer.
We're not sure if anyone had envisioned a 3D printer for kids before the guys at Toybox brought it to Shark Tank on season 10, but the idea was fresh enough to woo a backer in outspoken judge Kevin O'Leary. When you see the printer in action, that endorsement seems like a no-brainer. The Toybox scales down the functionality of a full 3D printer without throttling the possibilities. With the push of a single button, kids can let the machine create a series of readymade toys out of non-toxic, biodegradable filament in a variety of colors - no knives or scissors needed. When they're ready to unleash their inner inventor, they can create their own models with the companion app, which essentially makes this aptly-named printer a bottomless toybox.
With 8 filament colors included, the Toybox 3D Printer Deluxe Bundle is $314.99, more than 30% off the MSRP.

Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked.

The importance of reading is well documented. About half of America’s unemployed between 16 and 21 years old are functionally illiterate. And there’s an almost direct line between how much you read and your earning potential, with the richest Americans three times more likely to read than those with a household income below $30,000. However, […]
