my1Whether your child is a year old or pushing adulthood, 3D printing is able to offer them tools for learning and development that we could have only dreamt of when we were growing up. Back in April at 3D Print Week, my wife and I strolled through the expo checking out the latest and greatest 3D printing technology and applications. While my favorite booths were those which showed off cutting edge printing technology, my wife had more of an appreciation for all the applications related to education and child development. Before this show, she was one of the biggest skeptics of the industry in general, making comments such as “3D printers and useless,” and “Why would anyone want a 3D printer?” This has all changed now though as she eagerly anticipates eventually having a child of her own to share many of these awesome 3D printing applications with.

What’s so exciting is that every day new, unique applications seem to pop up. Today in fact, a startup based out of Madrid, Spain has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for MOYUPI, which is both the name of their product offering as well their company. The way the MOYUPI service works is quite simple. A child draws a character on an ordinary piece of paper, as detailed and colorful as they wish. That picture is then sent to MOYUPI, who will utilize their talented team of artists to turn the 2D image into a full-feature 3D model. Once the model is ready, the team will send it off to one of their 3D printers. The next step is the finishing and coloring process. Once the print is complete they will put it through a smoothing process before priming it to be painted. Customers will have the option of either having the primed creature shipped directly to them, or allowing one of MOYUPI’s artists to paint it for them to mimic the 2D my3drawing as best as possible.

When the completed MOYUPI creature arrives at your door, it is immediately ready for your child to play with. Below are some of the features inherent within the MOYUPI toys:

  • Completely child safe, meaning that there are no sharp edges or small pieces, and the PLA material is also non-toxic.
  • Custom made, exclusive and one of a kind.
  • Available in 3 different sizes (approximately 7, 10 and 15cm tall), 2 kinds of boxes and the possibility to paint them yourself.
  • Great way to boost the imagination and creativity of a child in a fun and exciting way.
  • Durable and ready to play with right out of the box.

The company is seeking at least 10000€ to bring MOYUPI to a full scale production level, and is doing so via Kickstarter by offering several rewards ranging from wallpaper to 3D printed and painted creatures of all sizes. Currently, the smaller toys are available to backers who contribute €30, while the medium and larger sized toys are available for €50 and €70 respectively. If fully funded, the company hopes to begin shipping the very first MOYUPI toys by the end of August.
