Reminds me a bit of Shrinky Dinks... really, really expensive Shrinky Dinks.

1 & 2 look great, but 3 looks horrible! Why'd they mess with the contrast so much?

"If there was a perfect tool to make 3D printing easier, what do you think it should be?"

The innovation in tools/technology needs to happen during the creative phase so that these kids can better express their ideas! Check out what ZeroUI is doing using a 3D Gesture interface to allow intuitive modeling. It's like finger painting in 3D!

There is nothing more important that helping a child to see early that their ideas can be made 'real'. Somehow, adding third dimension here really transforms these into living beings. I really enjoyed viewing these and I like this idea, and I think there is a market for it. Best to you!

I also wanted to add that I think this is a wonderful service. I love the drawings and their 3D alter egos!
