"This is what you'll buy your kid next Christmas."
- Alicia Adamczyk, Time
"Even from their earliest moments of Kickstarter success, one thing was clear to the team at 3D printing pen startup 3Doodler: they'd have to build a version just for kids."
- Chris Velazco, Engadget
"Straight away we were able to start drawing shapes and patterns flat on the table, and up in the air (which never stops being fun)."
- Simon Crisp, Gizmag
"3Doodler knows that there is a massive untapped market for this project as STEM toys continue to grow in popularity in America."
- Trevor Daugherty, 9 to 5 Toys

The plastic is warm, but completely safe to touch when it emerges from the tip of your 3Doodler Start. You can safely use your hands to shape your Doodles to perfection.

One plastic strand stretches to ten times its original length once extruded by the pen; that means for every 3Doodler Start Eco-Plastic Strand (6 inches / 15 cm), you get 60 inches / 150cm of Doodling, allowing for hours of play in each pack!

You can refer to our our Gallery to see details of how many Eco-Plastic strands were used to complete various Doodles and Projects.

Used (extruded) 3Doodler plastic cannot be reinserted into the pen.

Our Eco-Plastic is made entirely from food-safe materials, is non-toxic, BPA-free, and completely biodegradable in your household compost. Try it!

The 3Doodler Start Eco-Plastic will break down in around 45 days when in contact with soil, so perhaps the one thing we can’t recommend you make with your 3Doodler Start is a real flower pot!

Once fully charged, your 3Doodler Start will run wirelessly for 45 -60 minutes. If you want to keep Doodling, you can continue to use it when it’s plugged in and charging too.

Like any focussed activity it’s good to give yourself (and the pen) a break now and then. We suggest taking a break after two hours of continuous Doodling.

You need to start by “anchoring” your Doodle to a surface, we find any sheet of paper works well for this. When Doodling, we recommend pressing down into the paper until you can see a little blob of plastic come out, making sure the plastic is sticking firmly to the paper. Then you can freely lift off the page or move around. Once you have reached the height you want, stop the pen, and hold the plastic in place for a few seconds to allow it to harden. Start slow and don’t Doodle too high, and then gradually work your way to the stars!

If you are having trouble you may need to press the pen more firmly into the paper.
