The 3DIT Character Creator Molding Machine
My daughter looked over my shoulder when she saw my picture of this thing and said, “is that a 3D printer for kids?” I mean, how cool does this thing look?
Especially in the ads:
So it’s pretty disappointing that the reviews are all 1-star with feedback like, “Total piece of crap.” “Doesn’t work at all.” “TERRIBLE.” On some units, the wax won’t melt at all; on others, it melts and then goes everywhere other than into the molds; or it melts, then hardens within seconds into a giant misshapen glob. It would probably be more effective to buy silicone ice cube trays, then fill them with melted crayons. Or you could buy the Hot Wheels car maker, which apparently uses similar technology but actually works.
