Michael Jackson hit the stage when he was only five years old, Mozart wrote his first symphony at the age of eight, Stevie Wonder signed with Motown at eleven. Let’s face it: the younger you start, the better you get. But how do you stimulate children to play an instrument without killing their enthusiasm? ‘PRINTSTRUMENT’ is a 3D-printed toy that focuses on the fun of making music. Twenty-five different modules give kids the freedom to create their own flute or shaker and adjust it as their skills increase. A one-hole flute can grow into a bigger and more complex instrument, producing new sounds with each added module. This is your chance to take your first steps to stardom!
