RIZE helps Little You play at a new level in the personalized toy business

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

RIZE, a company dedicated to bringing industrial 3D printing to all users, has partnered with Little You so that kids can turn their wildest imaginings into functional 3D anime toys made using RIZE’s technology and materials.

A Toronto-based personalized toy design platform dedicated to fostering innovation and creativity, Little You lets kids make unique custom anime figures that can be 3D printed and delivered to their door. Until now figures were available only in 3D color sandstone, a fragile material that requires careful handling.

The agreement with RIZE enables Little You to offer users an option of 3D printing their creations in RIZE’s full-color RIZIUM composites – materials that are recyclable, environmentally friendly, and tough enough for hours of rugged play. Unlike technologies that are either full color or durable, the XRIZE 3D printer is both. RIZE helps Little You play at a new level in the personalized toys business

“With RIZE, Little You sets our users’ imagination free to make amazing full-color custom toys with the click of a mouse – and gives us another way to reinforce our brand”, said Christina Guo, founder of Little You. “Together we’re taking our users’ experience to the next level”.

With RIZE’s materials, Little You-designed custom figures can move off the shelf and into the hands of the creator. Kids can carry their creations anywhere – toss them in their backpacks, carry them in their pockets, share them with friends, or dance with them in the rain. Kids can select and add different costumes to their 3D figure, and change color, size, and position for different add-on accessories. The agreement also allows Little You to more efficiently scale its operations backed by RIZE’s growing ecosystem.

“Little You shows how innovative toy companies are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible,” said Andy Kalambi, CEO of RIZE. “We’re delighted that the XRIZE full-color 3D printing technology can help Little You unleash the creativity in children of all ages, and to dramatically expand its community of happy, playful users”.
