5vbukq9h_400x400If you’ve operated a few different desktop 3D printers by now, you’ve probably discovered that children, even at the elementary school level, are quite adept with both the hardware and software. It comes intuitively to them because they have grown up in a world of accessible, progressive technology. I certainly discovered this upon a doing a 3D printer review earlier this year, with my kids circling the box tirelessly until it was opened and then getting everything up and running practically on their own in a matter of minutes. So while the 3D printer meant for designers and engineers may be just as simple for growing children to operate and innovate with, how about one that is made just for the younger set? And at a much lower price?

Even better, if you order this machine in time, it will be at your door by Christmas.

The idea behind the Yeehaw is to offer a completely user-friendly 3D printer that allows children the freedom to create, drawing from the infinite number of options available

“Yeehaw is simple to operate,” states the team on Indiegogo. “Its child-friendly app gives children the confidence and ability to explore the possibilities, ignite their imaginations, and develop their passions.”

“Children can design their own toys, pixel-by-pixel with Yeehaw app. It’s easy to navigate and connects with Yeehaw directly, so your kids can get right to the fun.”

There are over 2,000 toys that are ready to print, meaning your children will be busy for quite some time! And best of all, safety has been the utmost consideration with the Yeehaw, with the company pointing out that ‘every aspect of Yeehaw has been designed specifically to be safe for children.’ It offers the following safety features:

  • Safety door
  • Automatic stop
  • Complete enclosure
  • Nontoxic filament

The Yeehaw is also highly automated, able to perform updates, calibrate and perform monitoring functions. Not only that, it will look beautiful in your house, with its classic, transparent design already having earned both the Red Star Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award.

An app provides numerous tools for the kids to design, and once they’ve begun 3D printing, they’ll see a range of lights that explain what is happening in the process, like Normal, Connecting to Network, Heating Up, Updating, or Abnormal.  The non-toxic filament is available in 12 colors. The campaign on Indiegogo runs for the next month as YeeHaw 3D hopes to raise $25,000. You can also follow the 3D printer manufacturer on Facebook and Twitter.
