Little You, a Canada-based toy company, partnered with Objex Unlimited, a Toronto-based 3D printing solutions provider to produce and ship the Mimaki 3D printed toys, that not only brings quality and vibrant colours to the toys but also safety and security for children, The 3D printed toys are available now to be shipped worldwide.
Little You hopes that kids will be able to unleash their creativity by customising the toys to create their own avatar. Kids can also accessorise the toys they create to build unique designs. These toys will be available in different sizes, at 2cm, 3cm, and 4cm, and are priced at only $15, $20, and $25. Once the kid decides on the final design and size, he/she can order the 3D printed toy.
Little You uses the Mimaki 3D printing technology, Mimaki specialises in full-colour inkjet printing, with impressive numbers of over 10 million unique colours and photorealistic quality, which provides a lot of flexibility to design. Earlier, this kind of technology would get used for high-quality prototyping models in the industrial or medical fields. Now, Little You is excited to bring this 3D printing technology to the little one’s hands.
“Little You is making a breakthrough by bringing this industrial technology into the realms of the children’s toy market. We already offer two materials, the Full-Color Sandstone, the Full-Color Glass Fiber Composite, and now we are adding the Full-Color Acrylic Resin from Mimaki. With the advanced 3D printing technology, we can create unique, vibrant, and highly personalised toy figures that are inhibiting your child’s imagination into real life.”– Christina Guo, founder of Little You
As an excellent tool to inspire children to conceptualize and design their own avatar, Little You has been an exceptional source of stimulation for both parents and teachers, using the mini toys as one source of learning in the classroom. The company has thrived to continue to grow to bring more designs and features in the future to continue to free the little one’s imaginations.
