3Doodler is the Newest STEM Gift for the Creative Minds

Anthony is 10 so I asked for the best pen for this age and older and we were sent the 3Doodler Create+ pen. 3Doodler has 3 pen options, the Start pen for ages 6+, Create+ for ages 14+ and the Pro can use 6 types of materials!

Our kit came with everything we need to get started

  • 3Doodler Create+ 3D Printing Pen
  • 3 Packs of refills (75 refills in 15 different colors)
  • Power Adapter
  • Maintenance Tools
  • Quick Start Guide
  • 5 start step-by-step projects
  • Instruction manual

Our 3Doodler Create+ 3D pen is easy to hold and so easy to use. I love the videos they have on their youTube channel because they really help you get to know your pen as well as feature great project ideas and tips.

I took over as the lead in our local High School cafeteria and am in the process of transforming the kitchen. It is so sterile and no one has ever put any effort into the kitchen in the past. I love decor and plan to have fun in that kitchen going forward for the kids. The school initials are OHS so I decided to have some fun and create a standing letter O to keep in the cafeteria.

I found the right shape O in Google images and printed one off. It would seem easy to just do a circle and call it an O, but as you can see in our video. It really helps to have it on paper. It comes out so much cleaner.

Now that I tried it out it was time to have Anthony play around with the pen. St age 10 he did very well. He likes to draw and write so this was so fun for him to see his creations peel right off the paper. There is a slow and fast speed on the pen and starting and stopping is just a 1-click operation.

As for safety! The tip gets hot so be careful and make sure you supervise the little ones. The plastic that comes with it is a no-mess and non-toxic material so it is safe to handle for those reasons.

Anthony printed out a Fortnite character and with some help from me on some curves and cleanup in his lines we created a fun piece and he wants to construct a stand with his LEGOS for it and display in his game room:

Japan’s number 1 kid shoe brand – Syunsoku Review

I have partnered with Achilles for this feature

Japan’s number 1 kids shoes brand - Syunsoku Review

Syunsoku has grown to become the number one kids shoes in Japan since it came about in 2003. What makes this shoe a hit is in the way the soles are made that enable wearers to run with all their strength by keeping their footing when cornering counterclockwise. It is a brand of Achilles and Syunsoku’s proprietary “Sokuiku (foot growth)” design helps children’s feet grow properly as they develop.

In Japanese, “SYUN” stands for “flash”, ”instant”; “SOKU” stands for “feet”. That means that these Syunsoku shoes represent “flash feet”, designed for power and speed.

boys fast shoes

My son is almost out of boy sizes, but they carry some styles in size 5 so these are the Storm Max shoes in red. This shoe is lightweight and a flat sole so this is a great choice for long distance running. A hollow structure is built into the front of the shoe to release heat and moisture making it a very comfortable shoe when moving or in the heat.

boys running shoes

All lines of Syunsoku shoes run near $50 so they are very comparable to other brands that offer fitness and soles for athletes in their running shoes. Anthony immediately noticed how lightweight they are when he put them on. They are a great choice for back to school kids shoes for the kids here in the US. They are unique and a top brand.
