Toys’R’Us will set up 3D printing kiosks in two of their branches in the US (Cranberry Township and Totowa, New Jersey). Just in time before the kick-off of the christmas shopping season on Black Friday, customers will be able to design, edit and personalise 3D models, which are then be 3D printed. The items cost around $ 10 and take less than 30 minutes to be manufactured on site.
Arden Rosenblatt, CEO at Toys’R’Us, states he “would like to see the kiosks in every city, state and country.”
PieceMaker’s concept has been introduced at this year’s Toy Fair in New York City. Shortly after, S.W. Randall started a pilot project in one of their toy stores, which turned out to be a huge success.
