Kids love being creative.
Whether they’re drawing, painting, making stuff out of plasticine, or assembling characters in Gacha Life, kids are constantly demonstrating their imaginative skills.
Little You is a fantastic avenue for these creative urges. This ingenious avatar creation platform lets you build a 3D character from scratch and then have it 3D printed and delivered to your door.
That brief description should be enough alone to send you running to the Little You website. But just in case, we’ve come up with five reasons why Little You is a great tool for kids.
(Or grown-ups. Anybody who likes creating stuff is welcome.)
Creativity. All too often we hear about the negative impacts of technology on our children’s lives. But Little You proves that technology can also be a means of unlocking creativity and helping your kids to become more confident, imaginative, and well-adjusted.
Variety. Whatever kind of person your child is hoping to represent, they’ll find what they’re looking for in Little You.
That’s because there are well over a thousand starter templates and a ton of customization options. Users can choose their avatar’s skin color, outfit, facial expression, eyewear, and much more.
Color 3D printing. There’s undeniably something magical about designing a character on a screen and having a 3D version delivered to your door. Little You offers a range of finishes, too, including full color sandstone, full color resin, and full color plastic.
There’s more in the pipeline, like full color candy and metal, making it even more unlikely that two Little You avatars will ever be the same.
Simplicity. The last thing you want in an app for kids is a complicated and off-putting interface. Fortunately, Little You is simple and intuitive, allowing you to create avatars and download 3D models with ease.
Versatility. These models aren’t just pretty ornaments. You can use them as board game pieces, teaching aids, stocking-fillers, and so on.
And there’s more. Little You frequently runs competitions for free toys, and right now there’s a contest for Halloween.
To enter, all you need to do is design a character, include #halloween in the description, and share it in the Little You gallery.
