A modern twist on a classic from Mattel.
FOX's Rich Denison reports:
In the 60's:
(Mattel) "You can make all kinds of lovely things like theses with Mattel's wonderful ThingMaker."
Mattel allowed baby boomer kids to make bugs from plasti-goop poured into a mold and heated.
The toymaker now coming out with a 3D toy printer, enabling today's kids to design their own dolls, robots or wearables. The new ThingMaker premiers this week at the New York toy fair.
A design app includes templates, or allows kids to come up with their own creations.
Amazon now taking pre-orders for ThingMaker, which is expected to be available in the fall for around $300:
