Your Lego bricks will fit on this train, which can be extended as much as you want. The train runs on the usual wooden rails and if you don’t have any tracks at home, you can print them as well. By the way, there are already some exciting remixes of “sconine’s” model.

Awesome! This movable dinosaur hits the maker community! More than 500 makers have already printed this model and there are already more than 20 remixes! But to become so popular we have to mention that the Flexy Rex is a hybrid of various cool 3D models from Thingiverse: It is a remix of the original model from Maker “Kirb”, based on the model from “airfish”, and Maker “zheng3” inspired this version with his “FlexyRex”. Maker “DrLex” lists the (low) cost of printing: You have to plan about 70 cents for the filament plus extra costs, such as electricity for your 3D printer, so that at the end you have to pay just around $2 en total.

These beetles keep young and old on their toes! They are printed in no time, they come in nine different versions and they can even jump! Put them on a hard, stable surface, then take a pen, for example a ballpoint pen, push it against the animal’s body and pull it backwards – yet the bug jumps into the air.

All makers might know this little boat: Benchy, the test model for 3D printing from CreativeTools. With this model you can compare very well how good your print results are. Afterwards your children can also benefit and play with it. Maybe a few Benchys will soon be swimming in a moat around the sandcastle which you have already built with the 3D printed sand molds!
