    Current 3d printing is quite expensive and I think it would be too expensive to have them just fool around with 3d printer. There are cheaper ways to let the children be creative ATM.

    Have you any idea how much it costs to raise a child? You're being more than a little short sighted here. What we need to do is combine 2 current trends in 3d printing. Childs 3d printers and 3d printable guns, a "Columbine Playset" if you will.

    Think of all that disposable income you'll have once junior is out of the way. Finally, your hard earned money can be directed towards the important things in life... hookers and beer! Mmmm... beer!
