3D Printed Toys: The 10 Best 3D Printed Christmas Gifts for Kids

Many people think of 3D printers as industrial-grade machines, better suited for professionals for prototyping and model validation. In fact, 3D printers are also fun consumer-grade machines for all users. With Christmas approaching, surprise your kids and family by printing unique Christmas gifts with a 3d printer!

Following I will recommend you 10 models suitable for Christmas gifts, not only decorative models, but also interactive puzzle models. You can spend a good parent-child time with your children! Thanks to all the model designers!
