3Doodler Start Product Design Pen Set

Testers were excited to see and thrilled to get to use this 3D pen to create Objets d’art. Every tester wanted a turn, from little kids to adults! This is a new technology and it can be a bit tricky to get the hang of. Invariably with each new tester it took a few tries to get it going. Patience is essential but once they got the hang of it they were off to the races. 3Doodler includes a booklet full of projects that you can make when you follow the step by step instructions. Parents liked that the pen is wireless, meaning there is no thick cord to plug into the wall. This makes manipulating the pen very easy. Plus, the pen is rechargeable with the included USB recharger cord, so there is no need to replace batteries. The materials used are like mini glue sticks and are made of a high-quality plastic. It comes out of the pen easily and there is very little waste. When you pull the pen away from the project there is no string of plastic that stretches away with it like hot glue guns. From a safety perspective the tip of the pen stays relatively cool to touch so the chances of getting burned are unlikely. And, the plastic itself does not get very hot, this gives the user a chance to actually touch, mold, and manipulate the plastic once it’s out of the pen. High scores, off the charts enthusiasm, this is a winner.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
