London (PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
Makies™ hits another milestone today, as MakieLab announces the release of Makies Doll Factory, a free iOS app for designing and ordering uniquely customised 10” high dolls from an iPad.
Makies Doll Factory is the iPad version of Makies (http://www.makie.me), where customers can design, customise and order one-of-a-kind 3D printed dolls. With the app, Makie-makers can play with a range of hair, eye, clothing and colour options for male and female dolls, shape their facial features, and name and create an unlimited number of digital dolls at no cost. Hours of creative fun!
Any digital Makie can be transformed into a unique, 3D printed plastic doll and ordered via iPad too (credit card and parental authorisation required). Real-life Makie dolls are super poseable, with brushable, styleable hair, and everything in their wardrobe exists as lovingly handmade clothes for them to wear in the real world. Makie-making is creative play for kids and collectors alike, on screen and off.
Build-a-doll pricing starts at the reduced price of £59.99 and allows customers to add on hair, clothes and accessories at various price points, from basic to ultra premium. This flexible new pricing is available via the app, and will be rolled out to the website later this week.
MakieLab is a London-based company making internet-connected customisable playthings. Formed in 2011, MakieLab has created technology to create physical toys from digital game objects, starting with avatars. Its first product, Makies™, is a world-first: a customisable 3D-printed action figure, CE-marked and EU-certified safe for kids aged 3+.
Future products include a full mobile game, tracking for early summer, and further expansion of Makies toys, customisation options, and accessories throughout the year. MakieLab’s second toy-game product, targeted at the boys 8+ market, is currently in development with partners.
